any sti product should be good, or a les baer - premier II model is now made in 9-about 2k I think

STI Trojan 9mm for $1k. No need to spend more for a range gun. It's everything you will need.

Here is my SACS custom build. I am very pleased with it. It will probably run you about $2200 or so depending on what you want on it. You could probably get a Les Baer Premier II in 9mm for less. From there, any other semi-custom 9mm is going to probably run you north of what i qouted. You shouuld contact Dave, DRC979 and get him to set you up if you want to go that route.

However, if you want to save some major coin, I would suggest going and getting an STI Trojan from this guy:

and having him set it up with what you want on it: Magwell, Refininsh ect.

I say a STI also from what I read there extremely high quality match grade guns.

Well, if price isn't a concern, then this is one bad monkey mofo of a 1911 9mm IMO. :cool:

Of course you can also buy a Kimber Custom Target II in 9mm. I like mine alot. Especially after Chuck fitted a Kart 38 Super barrel to it and did a little metal makeover. :)

On the lower end of the scale are the Springfield Loaded models, just look for one with an NM serial number prefix. Mine runs great and is plenty accurate. I also have a Kimber Target II that has been good as well. Each was less than $1000.

Why 1911 in 9mm?
Wouldn't a Browning High Power be a better option?

That is far from the smallest group, but is more "par for the course" offhand.

As for why a 9mm 1911 instead of a Hi Power, for me it is because a 1911 with slim grips is perfection in my hands. The HP just doesn't feel quite as right.

Why 1911 in 9mm?
Wouldn't a Browning High Power be a better option?


I'm a long time fan of the Hi Power and they are very reliable guns.

A 9mm 1911 is my next gun.

I'm going with an STI Trojan. It's just for goofing off and games.

I run a Hi Power in IDPA every now and then and honestly, they suck.

You can't feel the trigger reset and reloads are dicey because the mag will bind in the magwell pretty easily. Also a thumbs forward grip likes to touch the dustcover on the slide stop, causing malfs.

They just don't have the feel of a 1911. The thumb safety is mushy, the trigger is mushy and it's a little too dainty and small. When I really want to run the gun and get on it with an aggressive grip, the Hi Power just don't have enough meat on it.

He was looking for a 1911.
I myself much prefer the feel of the 1911 to the feel of a High Power. High Powers are nice, but I wouldn't have one.

Another vote for STI. I have a Ranger II from them in 9mm that has been amazing.

OP if I were to go with a 9mm I would go with STI. Nothing but good things are ever said about them.

I have the Trojan 5" now. Got one from Dawson since on-hand stock was the determining factor. Got the front fiberoptic site, trigger job, and a few other upgrades. Still considering having it hard chromed but trying to get over the justification of spending yet another $300 on a $1000 gun. It's a joy to shoot and has been absolutely reliable with any type of ammo. The slide to frame fit is indescribable. The slide movement feels like its on ice. Just a joy.

Highly recommend.

Heck, I'll be getting a 6" within the next month or so.

I have a Trojan in .45, and can say it is worth every penny. It has over 6,000 rounds and i havent had a single problem. GREAT pistol for the money. I might look at getting another in 9mm one day....its that good.

A Baer heavyweight monolith might be a pretty sweet shooter too...

I'd suggest a Wilson Combat CQB. It costs but it's a great 9mm 1911. Mine has performed without failure since I got it last summer with a variety of factory loads.

I've used Wilson ETM mags and would recommend those for whatever pistol you do purchase.

Good luck with your decision.

A lot of great choices already mentioned and I know that money's no object. But take a look at another STI, their "entry" level Spartan. Superbly accurate, 100% reliable and backed by STIs warranty you can find fancier but not better. A bit over $700 MSRP but most I've seen are priced in the mid $600 range. A topnotch shooter if there ever was one.

These are my current grips. And, everyone who shoots the gun or holds the gun always agree that the grips make the gun feel very comfortable in the hand. I got hooked on them with an MC Operator I once owned.

Now, I prefer these as I've gotten to the point where I don't care for where the front edge of the grips taper down to where the checkering starts on the front strap. I like the continuous surface.

Everytime I post the same pic, though - I get asked to see a pic of the checkering on the front strap one day. I found some pics I had of the gun when I first got it - so I posted one. At the time, I thought those Nighthawk alumagrips were really cool.

If you shoot your gun a lot, the cost of ammo will surpass the cost of the gun. Considering this, I can shoot my 9mm 1911 twice as many times for the same $1000 in ammo, maybe more. .45acp, almost the same.

It depends on one's assumptions, I guess.

A 50 round box of 9mm 115Gr. FMJ costs me $6.00.

A 50 round box of .38 Super 125 Gr. FMJ costs me $6.50.

The Doug Koenig Performance Center is not exactly a bottom tier 1911.

I am from Missouri, show me how you are making these prices. I have to assume you reload, and pick up range brass.

My assumption is that we are talking about factory loaded new ammo. I don't buy reloads someone else put together, and gave up on reloading my own years ago when I realized the $ per hour doesn't work out for me.

What made you think I assumed the Koenig was anything less than a $2000 pistol? I would wager in the same hands, my Fusion 9mm would shoot as good or better groups.

For those of you that have several 1911's including ones in 45 and 9, are there any inherent problems with the 9mm adaptation or do they run just as reliably as the 45?

I'm seriously thinking about getting one as the price of 45 ACP is just killing me and shooting anything other than a 1911 is just lame by comparison.

I would have zero problem paying the given price, say $2,400 for a 9mm Wilson CQB Compact vs .45. Wouldn't hesitate for a moment. I would just as easily carry it vs a .45 as well. Just one man's opinion.

Sorry, gentlemen, I should have made my question more clear.

I meant to ask if you were to come to a used M1911 in .45/.38 Super versus a similar 9mm model, would you be willing to spend more for the other calibers?

Why I asked? Because when it comes to the used gun market, desirability and demand has a lot to do with the price. With a new gun, you have retail price and you have dealer's price - so it's up to you to negotiate and see if you get something between dealer's price and retail price. However, with a used gun, there's a lot more leeway to negotiate.

It still comes down to overall quality of the gun, regardless if new or used. I'm thinking of getting my next 9mm to be also spec'd for .38 super, and maybe sending my 9mm CQB in over the winter for a .38 super barrel to be fitted, etc...
