Do you have a source (here in the US) for the RIA in 9mm? I know Armscor makes them but I'm not sure they're imported. For a time, Armscor itself imported & sold a 9mm double-stack - I had one. I've never seen an RIA 9mm single-stack 1911 for sale anywhere.

From the m1911.org forum (took about 2 minutes to find this):

I have a Star Model B that I shoot from time to time. Nothing spectacular about it - but it works. Not a very expensive gun however, being a Spanish copy of a 1911. My particular gun prefers heavier (124gr) bullets. I don't know if that is a common trait among the Star guns though.

For what it's worth...

NGIB, this time Armscor is being sold under the name of CITADEL (the same old importer: Legacy International Firearms), but just only in .45ACP (as far I know).
Bud's sold them at good price ($482 S&H included)
Just FYI.

Hi Doc, I've had real good luck with my SA, around 3k thru it with zero problems. Pretty darn accurate too!

I assume SA is Springfield Armory.....I was at my local gun shop and saw a Springfield 1911 9mm for $850 and a S&W 1911 9mm for $1250 (only $100 more than the same in .45).....was strongly considering the Springfield but thought I'd come on here and do some research first before "pulling the trigger" and buying something.......do those prices sound reasonable?

Default 1911 9mm

I have a Springfield Armory 1911 Loaded model (5 inch barrel, SS) in 9mm. I have had it for about 6 months. It shoots very well and I am quite satified. It turned out to be the ideal pistol for me.

Yes, they are hard to find. If you have a working relationship with a gun shop they can search the distribution channel. If not, hit GunBroker and keep looking.

My wife was looking at the EMP. Much higher in price but she likes the balance better because of the shorter barrel. The grip dimensions suit her as well. She likes this better than the comparable Kimber. It too is hard to find. The price and an increased felt recoil over the Loaded model is causing her some concern. No decision yet.

After looking at every 9mm in the gunshop her second favorite was the Browning Highpower in a target configurtion. (apologies for the heresy on the 1911 forum) It is a nice pistol too.

I guess were are both old school. Neither of us like the polymer guns.

Good luck.



Good luck.

If you can afford a 1911 than you can afford some .45 Like my girlfriend tells me go big or go home,, even she wants a .45 Kimber eclipse and shes 110lbs

I had a Springfield 9mm 1911, it was the full size "Loaded" model. I bought it new off of Gunbroker for about $825. I think it was the worst gun purchase I ever made. The gun was a hopeless mechanical mess. Return trips to Springfield Armory for work served no purpose other than help Fed Ex make money. Finally I gave up on Springfield service and sent the gun to Wilson Combat and paid out of pocket to get the gun to run. I know most people love their Springers and have no problems,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but I'll never own another one.
