Default 1911 in 9mm

Does anyone make a 1911 in 9mm but on a smaller scale? I like the Officer's 45acp but it seems too much for my wife. I think that in 9mm it would be perfect for her. She has small hands and she likes the feel and trigger of the 1911. The Govt model I have is too hard for her to carry concealed, but she sure can hit with it. She knows what she likes. A smaller 1911 but in a more controllable caliber for the little lady. Or maybe in .40? Any thoughts. We tried the Glock 19 and it is too fat. Revolvers she does not really care. She needs something thin for her hands.

Springfield Armory EMP 9mm. I had one and it was an outstanding pistol. They're now available in .40 as well, but they were designed for 9mm. Here's a link to the SA web page with the EMP: Springfield Armory

Para makes a couple The PDA (Link) And the Carry 9 (Link). There are also the LDA but that's another kettle of fish. I hear people talking Para down but from what I see there sure are not many used being sold. So people must keep hold of them. I personally have not seen one yet that wasn't flawless in function.

Many of the 9mm 1911s are just full size guns adapted to fire 9mm so if a 1911 is too big for her hands a 9mm version wil be the same. The one exception is the EMP from Springfield Armory which was scaled down for 9mm and 40S&W. Outstanding gun but pricey. If the budget allows there is no better option.

If over $1k is too hard to swallow you should take a look at Kahr (any model) and the Walther PPS. Both guns are slim and more suitable to concealed carry and folks with smaller hands. My wife and Daughter both carry Kahrs. My pocket pistol is a Walther PPS. FANTASTIC guns!

I believe that JD's significant other carries a Nighthawk Custom in 9 mike-mike. The Lady Nighthawk me thinks. They are pricey as well, but if you can swing it...

Thanks one and all The EMP is a little hard to swing right now, I had my hours cut down to 30 from 40. But I might be able to swing a Khar or used Para. The EMP used is still at about 1000.00 used.

Not a 1911, but based on the 1911 design--Star model B or BM. Actually
not bad pistols. Not something I would want to put 10,000 rounds through,
and NO aftermarket parts that I know of, but they are a little slimmer
and lighter than a 1911 and were designed from the ground up for 9mm.
