Congrats

You'll be very happy and the discount prices on the accessories flyer, in the box, are a good value too.

We'll have to take them for a run when you have time

Do they sell an aftermarket safety lever for the EMP? I guess I'm thinking about something like the lever style on the Kimber ULtra Aegis

The EMP takes any standard thumb safety...after it is fitted

^ thanks.. one more question... what part needs to be 'fitted' and what does that entail exactly... is it DIY?

There is a extension that extends into the frame...other than the pin that extends to the other side...that keeps the sear/hammer from releasing when engaged.

If you haven't don't it before, I'd either let someone else do it or have someone who knows what they are doing with out...it depends on how handy you are with files and fitting. If you're not aware of it's function, it might be beyond your abilities...mostly because it is dangerous if it isn't done correctly

Is it home now?

There are some sharp edges on the safety, but most of it has been nicely beveled

Yep. Got it home. Took it out for a spin already on the way home from work. Very nice. You are right about the thumb safety.

That looks awesome gatdammit. Hey how is the thickness on those grips? Are they the same thickness as the stock wood grips?

I think they're a bit thinner. And if I had to complain they don't fit quite as good as the wood grips. If you can see from the picture, the grip hangs just a tad below the frame. You can see them on lunde's pics too. Plus, I think the right side is a bit thicker than the left one when you get near the front strap of the grip. But they still look SWEET!
