1911 in 9mm

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by REA9mm, Feb 24, 2010.

    First off, please forgive me if my terminology is off here. If the gun is chambered in 9mm, does that mean it's not a 1911? Or is 1911 referring to the frame/slide style? :dunno:

    My wife likes my Glock 19 ok, but after shooting a full sized 1911 chambered in 9mm, she has decided that she prefers the grip of a 1911. But, she is a small lady and did not like the power of a .45. The rental she shot was an STI Trojan, priced around 1K at the shop. I know 1911 are generally more expensive than the polymer semi's, but I was wondering if anyone knew of reasonably priced 1911's chambered in 9mm. The shop did have 1 other, that was a Para Ord compact 1911 for about $800 used.

    I just don't know much at all about 1911's chambered in 9mm, so I was hoping you guys could enlighten me. TIA

    :patriot:
     
  2. An original 1911 in 9mm, will be the 9mm High Point Browning. The new cheaper version, will be the FN9 I believe.
     


  3. Kimber makes a few 1911 style pistols chambered in 9mm also.
    If you like ther guns.

    STI will be shipping there new Spartan 9mm 1911's any time now. They should run you about $630'ish.

    I wouldn't wish a Para on my worst enemy.

    I have a Colt 9mm 1911 that was worked by Wilson Combat.

    I think Springfield Armory also makes one...

    Mimber, Springfield, STI, and Colt all make 9mm's under a grand.

    I personally like 9mm 1911s. I have a custom one, and just ordered another custom 1911in 9mm.

    I'd also likely buy the Springfield loaded 9mm if they came with fixed sights instead of black adjustable ones (I think they do make a model with fixed sights, but its pretty rare).

    I have a Wilson Professional Bobtail in 9mm that I had a .38 Super barrel fit for, as well. The 9mm/.38 Super 1911's are fun to shoot and very easy to handle.

    Something to consider, Colt will be producing a 9-mm Defender this year I believe. It was introduced at SHOT this January.

    Yea, As I stated, however,m they are pretty rare. I've never seen one in person. My local shop does have a new one with the adj sights - but I hate all black sights. In the 1990s, there used to be a lot of 1911s with adjustible sights with white dots - ya don't see that much anymore.

    The SA would be a great choice. If you don't mind waiting the STI Spartan will be a good bargain offering.

    Thanks for the responses guys. What she liked most about it was the ease of control. A full size 1911 shooting 9mm has little recoil, plus the SA trigger makes it very easy to get back on target. I am gonna check out some of the kimbers I think.

    That's sounds like a hell of a deal. Where are you finding them at that price?

    Nevermind. I was thinking of a Trojan for $630! That price is right on with what my local STI dealer charges for a Spartan. I got all excited for nothing:embarassed:

    Based on the price of the 45 Spartan and what they sell for and STI said that the price will be the same then you should find them for 635'ish.

    Yeah. That sucks. At least put a white dot on the front and a bar on the back.

    I have a PX9130LP. Picked up it used a couple years back for a WELL below MSRP.

    It is, without a doubt, the most pleasant centerfire handgun to shoot I've ever encountered.

    I rarely clean it, and it's been 100% reliable over the course of just under 4,000 rounds. I have no idea how many rounds were fired by the previous owner. I'm running the factory magazines; I believe they are by Metalform.
