1911...Commander/Officer framed 9mm 1911s are about as close as you'll get.

BHP...is almost a double-stack 1911 in 9mm. But the barrel is 4.6".

CZ 75...various frame sizes, but DA/SA. Although for all intents and purposes, it performs the same as the BHP. Can be carried "condition one".

And another vote here for the BHP, you just can't find a better single action 9mm! But the barrel is as long as a 1911 so you might look around online for a used Argentine FM 90 Detective or FM 95 Detective which are excellent Hi Powers, even built using FN machinery.

Excellent suggestion. The BHP is, IMHO, at the top of the heap for single action autos.

I would have gone with that one in my first post, but I thought he was looking strictly for a 1911.

I don't recall anyone making a 9mm 1911 in the commander size (4-1/4" barrel). As already stated, anything less the 4-1/4" seem to take a lot of tinkering to make them reliable, but if I wanted a compact/sub-compact 1911, I believe I'd wait until I could afford the Colt New Agent or Defender, either new or used.
