So what are your options? Sell it? Part it out?
That has to be frustrating. :/
I like 1911's, but if you going higher end (over the $1000 price point), for a single stack, single action 9mm I'd get a P210 standard just to be different.
Always liked that one. There's a person on Armslist that has one with a 30 and 9 barrel
I picked up a Range Officer today in 9mm, to go along with my RO 45.
Regarding DW, I have a Valor CMD in .45acp....very nice piece. My only 9mm 1911 is a WC Hackathorn CMD with a gold bead grey over black. It is a very smooth shooter. Functions great and is quite accurate.
Springfield Range Officer is a nice one. Heavy enough there's
minimal recoil and very accurate. I don't carry it but it's a
nice range toy.
Only experience or trigger time I have with a 1911 in 9mm is my Dan Wesson Valor. My other 1911's are Colts in 45ACP and one is a Behlert tuned gun ... and the out-of-the-box Valor is on par with that gun.
After shooting thousands of 45ACP rounds, I was really surprized at the low recoil of the 9mm in the 1911. Wish I would have got one sooner.
My favorite model is just the plain full size 45acp military issue. I used to work in an armory aboard ship in the military and could take one of those things apart blindfolded. I still have nightmares of scraping old rock hard cosmoline and using gallons of Breakfree when we changed out the pistols getting a crate or two of those things working right that had been stored at some base for decades. If one was ever pointed at me and I wasclose enough I'd slam that sucker back to the slide lock for you with the palm of my hand faster than you blink.
Its a funny thing I never owned one. Sometimes an ex-military guy just never wants to see anything military related ever again. Hope you can understand.
I own quite a few 1911's. I went to a 9mm version about 4-5 years ago and I am totally hooked. I know when you say 1911, you're saying .45; however, I think once you begin shooting a 1911 in 9mm you will see what a great platform it is for this caliber. I own a Champion Operator in 45 and 9 and I like both very much, but I will carry the 9mm every time. I also own a Wilson Professional in 9mm and really like to shoot the gun at the range, it's super nice, but a little heavy to carry on a day to day basis. My favorite, 1911/9mm to carry every day is, without a doubt, the Wilson EDC X9. The size of a Glock 19, Double Stack 15 round Magazine, but feels and shoots like a 1911. Yes, it is a little pricey, but what an excellent firearm if you feel like treating yourself!
