Need help finding a 1911 in 9mm.


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

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 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.

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.

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.
