Hello all,

The thread name explains it well. I know there are some out
there and I figure someone in this group will know to find
them all! I prefer the 1911 platform to any other handgun,
9mm ammunition is inexpensive and being a long-time Glock
fan I have way too much 9mm brass, powders, recipes, etc.

Love my STI Ranger II in 9mm. They have a few models in this caliber.

Dan Wesson Guardian 9mm works great for me. I modified mine quite a bit, but even stock was nice. I recommend wilson combat 9mm mags though.

Springfield Armory makes a 9mm model.

Hello KM, owners seem to really like the various STI 9MMs. I have handled a couple of the different 9MM STI models. Seemed like very solidly built and well finished guns to me. Probably try one myself one of these days.

I have had good luck with the Kimber Target IIs in 9MM ( owned more than one of these), and the 9MM Dan Wesson PM-9 pistols. Not such good luck with out of the box Springfields, although I have an older custom SA 9MM that is excellent. I've had 9MM Colts in the Commander and Government versions, also good guns after a little tuning for reliability. 1911s in 9MM are considered wierd, or just plain wrong, by a lot of shooters and shops, so I rarely find one in stock. I usually have to check the auction sites, GB, etc to locate 9MM 1911s. Attached a photo of my current 9MM 1911s. All reliable, in spite of what some self-anoited 1911 experts say on the internet, accurate and fun...ymmv

Talo Edition Colt Government Model 9mm.

Or standard Colt Defender/New Agent in 9mm.

What is your budget?, STI Spartan is a basic 1911 that has more than the basics and still very affordable.

I have a Springfield Arms EMP and love it. Very smooth and accurate, with minimal recoil.

I have had excellent service from the following 9mm 1911's. Most of them were commanders.

Colt 9mm and 38 super, another 9mm on the way now
Colt Defender 9mm
Kimber, Aegis pro, and Tactical Pro
STI, Ranger and Guardian
Bul Transmark, Commander
Para LTC, very accurate, but had to have some reliability work to run right
For low budget it is hard to beat a Rock Island or a Star model B, BKM, or BKS

Springfield are great, but I have only owned them in 45acp

STI has a wide selection of 9mm pistols to choose from and they build a great pistol

Good luck with your search

My Wife purchased a Colt New Agent in 9mm and I have to say it is verry good. At the range each of the RO's had to take a look and let them run some rounds through. Postive remarks on all features. Of course a tweak here or there will still be in order.

I just bought the Colt Defender 9mm. Can't wait to pick it up next week and give it a whirl.

The only sucky part is the limited availability of magazines. You either get Colt brand, Metalform or Wilson Combat.

It may be a bad word to some but I have a Taurus PT 1911 9mm and I really like it. It was very reasonable in price. Just another option for you.

Rock Island Armory also has a 1911 in 9mm. I have the Tactical model and it performs very nicely.

Lots of good options out there these days. What's the intended use? Carry? Range toy? That will obviously influence your decision.

That said, I recently picked up an old series 70 Colt that may have been unfired. Beautiful gun but will get fired occasionally only.

I also just recently picked up my new STI Lawman in 9mm. I believe last year was the first year they offered it in that caliber. To say I'm impressed with it would be an understatement. It's my first STI product but it won't be my last. It's incredibly fun to shoot. Accurate, well built, etc... I'd highly recommend anything from them.

Just my $0.02

EDIT: fnfalman, STI ships with metalforms. I bought 4 extra when I ordered the gun. All work flawlessly in the STI and the Colt. I just thought it would be worth noting.

I am interested in the RIA TCM. It comes with a 9mm barrel but also has a .22 caliber barrel necked down from 9mm. I could see ammo for the .22 being hard to find but it would be pretty simple to make if you reload.
I would imagine it would be a pretty awesome range toy and fair substitute for a medium range weapon (PDW).
Not a lot of experieance with the RIA gun's but they seem pretty popular and get good reviews as a low cost 1911 option.

Another vote for Wesson. Guardian or Pointman.

Gotta be honest.. i have a DW guardian which i got though a private seller..

i am having an issue with a mags so i headed over to the Site to look at warranty info.

I will be honest the 5 year warranty and showing proof of purchase to get warranty is kinda of a let down..

I was going to get another guardian or Vbob in 45 and i will likely pass for another gun with a better warranty.

just my 2 cents.

Don't know if you found one yet and I know that I am going to catch a lot of ***** here for this but I have a colt defender, SS, < 100 rounds down the tube. What I am looking for is a beretta M9 or 92 FS. Obviously the trade would be a little off balance but we can figure something out.

By the way BAC, maybe you are a little closed minded, I have 1911's in 22, 9mm, 40 S&W, 45 acp, 10 mm and 7.62 x 39. I like the platform and will continue to add to the collection.

I have a Stainless Springfield Loaded in 9mm that is pretty fun to shoot. Picked it up used off of a local forum for under $800 with 7 magazines. I haven't had a bit of trouble.

My SO has a STI Spartan 9mm that was purchased new and it had to go back to STI. They eventually replaced the barrel but it took a lot of phone calls and persistence. Their customer service left room for improvement.

They just aren't my thing is all. There's nothing wrong with them.

By the way, I hope you aren't referring to those pot metal rimfire replicas as 1911s.

Also, I'm curious which 1911 you Have chambered in 7.62 x 39?

It's a full size mag. Sure it'll work, but it'll also sticks out quite a way.

JMB would have already rolled in his grave with the .38 Super, so having him rolling again with the 9mm, the 10mm, the .40 SW, 9mm Dillon and a host of other wildcats/esoteric rounds ain't a big thing.

BAC, obviously you do not remember some of our PM's back and fourth. I do not own a single pot metal POS 1911. Other than a few colts I do not own any other than ones I built in my shop. The 7.62 x 39 is a typo, it is 7.62x25 tok. I have done 1911's in that cal and gas operated AR's as well. I refuse to buy many off the shelf guns as most are of lesser quality than I build.

typo, it was meant to be 7.62x25 tok round.

Here is a link to the 7.62x25 that I posted in the classified adds here. No interest but another manufacturer bought them for $2500
