    I like the looks of flush mount mags better but with me having champagne tastes but a cheap beer wallet it looks like a extended mag may be the only way to go.......unless.

    RIA makes a double stack for right around $770.00 (plus tax, shipping and FFL fees) which may be a way for me to go if I can't talk myself out of a double stack......I haven't checked but I would imagine spare mags will be a RIA exclusive and probably kinda expensive.

    My one and only 9mm handgun is a RIA 1911 and so far with around 600 rounds ran through it I've not experienced any problems whatsoever with it functioning so I'm not afraid of the RIA brand and from what I've read on other forums they do have excellent warranty / customer support.

    Maybe I need to do a little more pondering on this whole double stack thing before I take the leap.

    Thanks for taking the time to look around for me @bigred1 but I'd rather have a full size 5 incher.

    Lots of boys really like those RIA double stacks. Dan Wesson was coming out with the DMX that looks really nice, but I'm guessing Covid shut that down for now.

    Is STI even still building frames and slides for builds? If you want a good doublestack 1911 type I’d wait on that Dan Wesson or bring a lift to help carry your checkbook. Staccato or SVI is pretty much it if you want one that actually runs.
