getem, fun guns, IMHO. Over quite a few years, I've owned Colt, Dan Wesson, Kimber and Springfield in 9MM. I still have the four pictured. All, other than the Kimber, required at least minor tuning to achieve the reliability and/or accuracy I expect in a quality pistol. All my current 9MM 1911s are as reliable as my .45 ACPs. I don't carry these, but would not hesitate to do so if I so desired...
The Kimber Target IIs I've owned in 9 and Super all worked 100% from day one, no issues, very good value in a 9MM 1911, IMHO.
The Colts, Govt. and Commander size, worked well, but sometimes rquired a little tuning to achieve reliability.
Recent Springfield full sized stainless 9MM, rougher finish, improperly fitted barrel, accuracy, reliability issues, not a favorite of mine in stock form. I have an older blued custom SA 9MM that is a very reliable and accurate pistol.
Dan Wesson Pointman-9. A step up all the way around IMHO. Not perfect, but very well fit and finished, quality components, reliable and accurate. There may be higher quality production guns available, but I have not experienced them...ymmv
