Anyone ever had one of those double-stack 1911's?

    I remember seeing a Springfield 14-rounder 1911 (well, 13+1 rounds) in a catalog a few years ago. Just wonder if anyone had one, and what they're like to shoot and all.

    Not my style, but if you're going to get one, get a 2011 from STI.

    I think if I wanted to go that route because of having more ammo per mag I would carry a HK in condition one.

    Oh, I don't want one. Just wondering how they ever did with that platform.

    The 2011 (particularly STI's) is among the most widely used handguns in the action pistol sports (namely USPSA).

    That's what it was born for, and that's what it does exceptionally well. I doubt we'll see them go away anytime soon.

    In the mid 90's I bought a new 'pre ban' Para Ordinance P16-40. It was very accurate despite a pretty heavy trigger, but reliability was awful (especially with the flying ashtray rounds of the day), and the grip feels like a 2x4.

    Single stacks for me from now on.

    I actually had one for a while, I bought it on a whim. It was reliable enough and shot okay but I never could quite get used to the double stack width and I sold it.

    I will second that motion. I had a STI Eagle 5.1 for a short while and was very impressed. Only got to shoot it one time, but it was a very good experience. Being that I was not really into the 2011s, I eventually traded it for three Colt 1911s.

    i love my 2011. it's actually slimmer in the grip than my 1911's with standard grips on it.
    functions 100%.

    One of the guns that I frequently carry is a Para-Ordnance p14-45. It has the rail and night sights and I think it shoots great. I have big hands and used to carry a Kimber or Springfield 1911 with the Hogue rubber finger-groove grips. I like the way the Para fills my hand without the tacky rubber of the Hogues.

    I have an STI Lawman and give A+ on quality, fit & finish, reliability and accuracy. The company is in Texas and the folks are first class in every way!

    I don't know that it is a "true" 1911, but the Wilson Spec-Ops 9 certainly was built on a 1911 style platform. This pistol has been flawless.

    I remember that deal James. I still can't believe you pulled that off, but you really made out well. :thumbsup:

    I HAD a Para Ordnance LDA Limited,.......shot great, loved it!
    However, it was stainless with black accents, the black flaked off three times.
    Never used any cleaner than clp,.........sold the POS

    Dave, that thing is awesome as hell. Maybe the coolest polymer pistola I've ever seen. MSRP of $1,995. What's the street price?
