I hate to hear that.

I actually used to be a dealer for those 1911 knives.

If I were in your shoes, I would consider a 9mm 1911 solely as an economical shooter. I would ditch the idea of 10mm altogether. It's not that the 10mm isn't a good cartridge, but I'm really of the thought that the 10mm can't do anything the .45 won't do (or even the .40 S&W for that matter).

For example, and I'm not saying it's flat out "better" than anything the 10mm can offer up, but a 250-255gr hardcast under some Power Pistol will leave a 5" .45 ACP at 1,000 fps. It's one of my favorite heavy .45 loads, and will drop game quick. Want more? Take up loading the .45 Super. I load for it and I'm impressed. From my 5" barrel, here's what I got so far, mainly using Power Pistol and Longshot:

200gr JHP @ 1,350 fps
230gr JHP/hardcast @ 1250 fps
250gr JHP/hardcast @ 1200 fps
275gr hardcast @ 1150 fps

I've got some 300gr LFNGC's coming, and while they're mainly for the .45 Colt, the profile should be ideal for feeding in my .45 SUPER. Now to me, those numbers are better than the 10mm. I had several 10mm's including a 1911 but sold them. I hope you have a good source for 10mm brass, as the last time I checked, 10mm brass wasn't exactly easy to come by right now. Just my .02.

There's no way I'm dropping the 10mm. And there's really no way that a 45, let a alone a 40, can perform like a 10mm. Just not possible.

News Flash: After having served for 102 years the 1911 and the .45 ACP is now officially obsolete. It sure took long enough.

Never rule out any caliber chambered in a 1911. In the right hands a 9mm can be very effective.

I currently have a STI 1911, full size and a Sig 1911 Stainless Carry (commander) both in .45. But, the older my hands get the more I think a 1911 in 9mm might be easier to handle. I love my .45's but my arthritis doesn't necessarily agree with me.

Which is why my next one will be a STI Lawman 4.0 in tan & brown chambered in 9mm. JMHO

I have old hands that were having a lot of trouble with arthritis as well. I would wake up some mornings with claws instead of fingers. On advice of a sports medicine doctor, I started taking a "health supplement".....Shark Cartilage. Within a few weeks my hands felt very much better. It is a cheap experiment that might work for you.

I still shoot my 1911 in .45 ACP and have no problems.
