About how much does it cost to have those bulbs replaced?I bought the 3" early this year used. I've had zero problems with it. I also sent the slide in to Trijicon to have the "bulbs" replaced in the night sights. I love it. Later this year, I found and bought the 4" bobtail new and it is also awesome. I have about 600 rounds through it with zero problems. I love it also. I have shot several different types of 9mm through both and they just keep working.
Captiva what grips did you get for your EMP.I have the EMP4 C3 model PI9229L with about 200 good rounds through it.
Neat design of a gun - well executed re-engineering of the 1911 grip frame for the 9mm cartridge. Kudos to SA for the design work. Grip is definitely smaller and quite comfortable, but I had to swap out the thin factory grips for regular thickness. Really nice for carry, and I like the smaller magazines.
IMO overpriced @ MSRP $1,220 being full of full MIM. I don’t know if the MIM innards are the same spec as a full size 1911.

I had the EMP in 40S&W and had front tritium vials blown out the front to be lost in the sea of brass at the range. Happened in the first 400 rounds. SA warrantied my slide repair-sent to Trijicon directly. Only complaint was when returned the roll pin holding the front sight in was fine on top of the sight but looks like they bubba dremeled the inside of the slide below the sight and left it with an obvious “oops” ground in the slide internal. No mention of it when returned, just “here ya go”. I gave full disclosure and sold it to a local PD officer wanting it for an off-duty BUG. I’d get another one - but in 9mm instead. For a hair more money, get the DW guardian unless you’re set on having a 3” barrel.About how much does it cost to have those bulbs replaced?
I remember following your build thread on that one. I sort of want one of the 4” CC in 9mm to possibly replace my Shield but I’m on the fence.I had one that I built up. It needed a couple trips back to correct major issues that I could not repair without a mill. It eventually was a good little gun but then I fell in love with carry optics and moved onto something new.
