Your thoughts? These 3 all run about $1k. Looking for feedback, not "if it ain't .45 rants..." and "small 1911s suck" opinions. Springfield EMP - seems to be the gold standard, as it was designed for the 9mm. However, it would require some mods to get it just right. No ambi, and flat baseplates. Also has no FS checkering. I believe 8+1 with flat baseplate. STI Escort - AL frame, carbon steel 3" slide and only 22oz. Already no ambi, flat baseplates, and FS done. Only 1 mag and 7+1. STI Guardian - similar to the Escort, but stainless so heavier at 32oz. 3.9" barrel. Also no ambi, flat baseplates, one 7+1 magazine. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
