You can get higher capacity magazines for 1911s, and some 1911s are made for double stack magazines.
The revolver though is kind of stuck at 5-7 rounds. Fine for most purposes, not for fighting off a large amount of attackers.
The changing the mag is the problem. In a stituation where you are stressed and in immediate danger, changing a mag is not something you should have to worry about.
