I want to get a 1911 for USPSA single stack division competiton. I used to own a Taurus and I briefly had a Rock Island Armory. They were both chambered in 45acp but if I can get one chambered in 9mm or even better 40 cal thats what I would like to do this time. Not that the 45acp isn't a fantastic round it just doesn't lend itself to shooting fast when compared to the 9 or 40. What manufacturer and what model do you suggest for this purpose and why? I want to keep my investment to a minimum like under $1200. I like the S&W's but only because I shoot a 627pc in revolver (ICORE) matches. Anyone have any experience with the S&W pro series 1911 in 9mm? Have you shot any 1911 9's with loads that make major PF? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
