    STI Trojan 9mm for $1k. No need to spend more for a range gun. It's everything you will need.

    Here is my SACS custom build. I am very pleased with it. It will probably run you about $2200 or so depending on what you want on it. You could probably get a Les Baer Premier II in 9mm for less. From there, any other semi-custom 9mm is going to probably run you north of what i qouted. You shouuld contact Dave, DRC979 and get him to set you up if you want to go that route.

    However, if you want to save some major coin, I would suggest going and getting an STI Trojan from this guy:

    and having him set it up with what you want on it: Magwell, Refininsh ect.

    Well, if price isn't a concern, then this is one bad monkey mofo of a 1911 9mm IMO. :cool:

    Of course you can also buy a Kimber Custom Target II in 9mm. I like mine alot. Especially after Chuck fitted a Kart 38 Super barrel to it and did a little metal makeover. :)

    On the lower end of the scale are the Springfield Loaded models, just look for one with an NM serial number prefix. Mine runs great and is plenty accurate. I also have a Kimber Target II that has been good as well. Each was less than $1000.

    Why 1911 in 9mm?
    Wouldn't a Browning High Power be a better option?

    Probably not long. Check with Brazos or Dawson. They usually have them in stock.

    I would not fool around but get a Nighthawk, Wilson Combat, Les Baer or Springfield Custom Shop. Go ahead and get the best.

    That is far from the smallest group, but is more "par for the course" offhand.

    As for why a 9mm 1911 instead of a Hi Power, for me it is because a 1911 with slim grips is perfection in my hands. The HP just doesn't feel quite as right.

    I'm a long time fan of the Hi Power and they are very reliable guns.

    A 9mm 1911 is my next gun.

    I'm going with an STI Trojan. It's just for goofing off and games.

    I run a Hi Power in IDPA every now and then and honestly, they suck.

    You can't feel the trigger reset and reloads are dicey because the mag will bind in the magwell pretty easily. Also a thumbs forward grip likes to touch the dustcover on the slide stop, causing malfs.

    They just don't have the feel of a 1911. The thumb safety is mushy, the trigger is mushy and it's a little too dainty and small. When I really want to run the gun and get on it with an aggressive grip, the Hi Power just don't have enough meat on it.

    He was looking for a 1911.
    I myself much prefer the feel of the 1911 to the feel of a High Power. High Powers are nice, but I wouldn't have one.

    Another vote for STI. I have a Ranger II from them in 9mm that has been amazing.
