Nighthawk and D&L Sports also offer standard 9mm models. Neither one is what I would consider "cheap" however... and the D & L models are just plain over the top expensive... LOL

As the market stands right now Building a 9mm 1911 might be the best thing to do .

Fusion has kits that look almost but not quite complete in just about all the normal 1911 calibers .

I have been looking into this option. Still researching the details as I am a 1911 newbie, but throughly addicted. A shorter barrelled 9mm 1911 woud be a gift from on high.

Does anyone know if there is a DAO model of the 1911?

who is the company that always advertises on the back page of Shotgun News about their pocket-sized 1911 in 9mm? I'll have to go grab my copy and see. It looks pretty small and pretty nice!

One of the key advantages of the 1911 is that you can safely carry in condition one ( a round in the chamber, hammer back and safety on ).

There would be no reason to build a DAO model that I can think of - and racking my brain, I can't think of any manufacturer who would is currently producing such an animal.

If it was a DAO it would require some major design changes to the point internally and externally it would be so far from a 1911 it couldn't really be called one .

The trigger would go from a straight foreword/rearward travel to more of a swinging link style used on DA/SA autos and the DAO would completely eliminate the ability to be carried in condition one with the hammer cocked so why bother having a frame safety on the thing ?

If you want such an animal I think there are a few people who make or made them in 45 ACP like Ruger , CZ and perhaps Taurus . Of course you must understand no matter what the frame and slide look like it still isn't a 1911 .

I have an STI Trojan 9mm and it is superb. I think it costs about $900 now (check Dawson Precision) but you get so much more gun than the $700 junk like Para, Colt and SA.

The closest thing is the Para Ordnance LDA 1911 but you REALLY want to steer clear of those.

Believe me, I know.....

bgeddes the President of Charles Daly has said they will be bringing out a 9mm 1911 once production with their new supplier gets going full steam .

Bad news is he hasn't told anyone who that is yet .

The good is that he has stated new guns should start hitting the market in late 2008 and we're almost there .
