I was talking with a good friend of mine the other day and he had asked my thoughts on the 9mm 1911's. I told him i hurd both good and bad but really havent looked to deeply into them. He went on to ask if it would be a good first gun. I told him to give me a few daya so i could see whats out there and hear peoples personal experiance with them. Now hes had his ccw for a year and ive taken him to the range a bunch of times with my guns. The main purpose of the gun he said is a range gun not a carry and because its 9mm its cheap to shoot. So my question is whats good whats not good and lets hear it all. Thanks guys and gals.
For a relatively low budget 9mm 1911 my first choice would be a STI Spartan. Every one I've seen runs
My wife has 2 9mm 1911's that she competes with in USPSA Single Stack division. Both run 100%
Gun 1 is a Colt Series 70. It likes Tripp research 10 rd Cobra magazines
Gun 2 is a Springfield loaded stainless. Magazines for it are Dawson Precision 10 rd.
