Let me start by saying until recently I was a purist when it came to 1911s. But I talked to a few friends about getting in uspsa and the first thing they both mentioned was the need for a double stack gun. Not so much a need but how it makes shooting long stages easier. So I am wanting to know about people's experiences with double stack 1911s as well as what range of calibers you have shot through them.

was the need for a double stack gun.

Not sure if you know, but the kind of gun you need depends on the division you want to shoot in and if you want to be competitive. For Limited Division yeah, the 2011 style gun is great. If you like the 1911, shoot in the Single Stack Division. One of the things I like about USPSA is you get to work the gun, and mag changes are alot of fun! In Limited or Open you will get less of the manipulation and more speed. Each Division is scored independently so you are not at a disadvantage shooting a 1911.

I bought this Bul M-5 off of gunbroker for $400, and did some work to it. There's only 1 place in the country that has mags, but he can get you as many as you like.

Holds 18+1, It's a bit big and heavy for EDC, but in the winter it's really easy. I slicked mine up for IDPA ESP, and I could use it for production classes in other sports. It's also 9mm, and polymer framed.

How'd you get it off eBay?

What ever you do, don't get a POS Para.

Have to agree with bac on the Paras. I take it on faith that there must be some, perhaps many, that work reliably, mine was not one of those. I purchased a new Para P-14 Limited several years ago. Looked good, fit well, Bo-Mar type sights,etc. Tried several types of name brand name factory ammo. Not sure I ever got through a full magazine without a malfunction. Would not even feed commercial ball reliably. I do hear good things about the STI double stacks though.

I was in the market for a hicap 1911 and almost bought Quacks... Ended up picking up a G21 for cost reasons. Figured the money spent on a hicap 1911 would be better spent on mods for my other guns :-)

FWIW... I'll eventually pick one up but its not at the top of my "want" list

I have a STI Eagle in 9mm on my short short short list......with all the addons for IDPA.
