9mm 1911

  1. Range Reports & Reviews
    I'm embarrassed to say this is the first time shooting it and it did not disappoint, there's nothing like the accuracy of a tight, hand fit gun. I may start carrying it and for anyone that has had the benefit of looking down a Yost gold line sight, it's freakin awesome. I'm a Gold bead hater as...

    Seeking recommendations for a 9mm 1911. Would like a government sized with light rail. A magwell would be nice as well. Not looking for something very expensive. Thanks.

    I'm interested in the opinions of readers on the various lightweight 5 inch 1911 9mm options. If you've owned, or shot, a LW 5 inch in 9mm, don't hesitate to chime in. thanks, Brent

    After months of waiting, I was finally able to pick up this masterpiece. Lower is hard chromed, gold bead sight and 9mm were the only options I chose on this beauty! Special thanks go out to Rob, Nick and Patty, for always being there to answer my questions and give me updates on the progress...

    I posted last week that I got a great deal on my new DW TCP 9mm from Dan @BBP- which was a great transaction in every way. Got my transfer done and got out to the range to put my first 150 through it. I am in love! The balance, the trigger everything is great. I seem to be able to get back on...

I ordered it in 9mm, with ambi safety, agent one rail scale grips, 3 dot night sights, and an extra barrel that is threaded for my suppressor. Should be one sweet pistol! Now the wait begins.. The picture attached is very...

    Hello, I own many handguns but just got my 1st 1911, a SA Range Officer Elite Operator in 9mm 5". I've been told I should use +P rounds to increase slide cycling speeds until broken in. Fact or fiction? What would u experts recommend as far a ammo on a new 1911 in 9mm? Thank in advance.

    I’ve been having problems lately with nose-down jams using Tripp 10 round mags when loaded to capacity; Not when the gun fires, but when I first load it and drop the slide. So, if I can get the darned thing chambered, it feeds fine. I’ve found that loading 8 rounds instead of 10 fixes the...

    I've owned one Springfield Armory Range Officer - 5 " 45. It ran well. I'm interested in acquiring a 9mm 1911 - the RO Compact and the RO with full-size frame/4 inch barrel are of interest. Your collected thoughts on either of the above, or other good 1911s in 9mm that would be good to start...

    I've always been told that in regards to 9mm 1911's: - Have a ramped barrel - Figure out which mags it likes I want to get into the 9mm 1911 game, but I don't feel like plunking down 3.5k + into my first non-.45ACP outing. I've been looking at the Competition Gov from Colt and the SA RO...

    Do any of our addicts, or smiths have any scientifically-based or experience-based knowledge regarding running +P or major power factor in a higher-end 1911, like a EB/DW/WC/NHC/GI? I ask because when I was at a match a week or two back, I had not brought enough ammo with me and a friend gave...

    I am selling - practically giving away - my Wilson Combat Protector II compact in 9mm. There is nothing wrong with the gun at all and it has functioned flawlessly. It is simply time to move on from my collection since I have several similar. I can provide more pics if you are interested in any...

    I'm looking to pick up my first 1911. I'm looking for a government sized chambered in 9mm. My intended use will be for a range gun and I'd like to start shooting IDPA, or similar sport. I'm not a fan of the two tone guns. In terms of things I care about in order Reliability A great trigger...
