I have Springer RO operator and it have been flawless and accurate with many rounds down range. I love it!!! Pictured with my RO compact 9mm. Both are great!!

I bought a Sig 320 xFive last winter and was initially less than impressed. But an extended break in period (500 rounds) and more reps resulted in a comfortable arrangement. I mounted a Sig Red Dot on it and it shoots my reloads all day long.

If you want accuracy the Sig Sauer 210 is a pretty nice option. For the money you can not beat a Sig Sauer 226 SAO. I have a 229 with a DA/SA with the SRT and it will put a lot of high dollar guns to shame. Some people just can’t get used to the DA / SA trigger. The SAO gun out of the box are tack driver. I have had one or two that I have had to send back but their customer service is second to none. They have a hell of a target crowing service as well for $45 unless you know someone it is a great price and finish.

The range office line is a great line of guns and never dismiss them. All depends on your bank account and how many rounds you want to hold.

Another endorsement for the Sig p210. I have the target model and just shoot it for S&G, but I can shoot it better than any of my 1911s. Cosmetically perfect, made in America.

For IDPA, the S&W M&P9 M2.0 in 4.25 or 4 inch barrel is popular and made in USA. A ten minute swap of the sear with an Apex 2-dot sear provides a good trigger and replacing the sights with Williams Gun Sight Firesight (fiber and fully adjustable) results in an inexpensive, accurate, easy to shoot 9mm IDPA pistol. Also need some extra magazines and an outside holster. Many mention Range Officers: Brazilian parts often need to be replaced and fitting required. Need to check IDPA rules about where 1911 is classified.

One will see G19, PPQ-M2, VP9, even a G48 - more expensive. Shoot a M&P9 M2.0 for a season and try others . . . . .

Well since you are posting on a 1911 forum, I take it you would prefer the 1911 platform, but I would say take a look at the CZ line...great platform

Thanks for all the input. I ordered a Wesson PM 9 today. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

He said he had already owned one.

In any case, a Hi-Power isn't really going to give him what he's looking for. I love the Hi-Power for its elegance and history, but they don't make great shooters without substantial modification. Fitting is generally pretty loose, accuracy is nothing special, and the stock trigger is poor. They aren't high-end guns (although the T-series models command high-end prices these days).

Look at the Colt 1911 9mm Competition.

Good for you, you'll give us a range report when you get it? I'm probably not the only one who would like to hear how it shoots.

Nice choice...I would also like to hear a range and match report...I was looking at one on Bud's a couple of days ago for around $1300...Thinking about upgrading from my RO...I've done some work on my RO and really like it...Trigger job, FO front, Hogue wraps, and it's a tack-driver, but I'm looking for something stainless and little nicer out-of-the-box than the SA RO...Thinking about handing the RO down to my boy...He needs a nice shooting 1911 (even though it's a 9) that he can enjoy...

I will provide a review and pics when I get it.

I cant develop any love for the Springfields for some reason. I looked at the RO Elite and it felt just like my Colts. Slightly loose, blah finish - just nothing special even though I know they are great guns and priced right. I haven't handled the Wesson but expect a clear difference from ordinary production 1911's.

If it is not - I will certainly let you know.

I know exactly what you mean...Besides an adjustable rear, stainless barrel and bushing, it's on par with my SA Mil Spec in .45acp, which is a darn nice gun...
I hope you get the experience you are looking for and love your new purchase! The difference in quality, fit & finish between the DW PM and the SA RO should be evident from first touch...

IF you stay with the 1911 format, take a look at the Fusion line. Lots of price points and can be as "stock" or as custom as you wish. Awesome guns!

I am in the CZ Tactical Sport (orange grip) camp. Check out the reviews and videos that are on line. If you get an opportunity to personally shoot one then better yet.

Also, the Sig. 210 would warrant a look IMO.

CZ is the real deal.
Couldn't agree more, the TSO in 9mm wasn't available when I got my CZ Accu Shadow 2. Its the most accurate centerfire handgun that I own.

If we're going beyond the 1911 platform, how about the CZ AO1-LD, new from the Custom Shop?

A 1911 is not a platform.

A truck is a platform. A Humvee is a platform. An F-18 is a platform. An aircraft carrier is a platform.

A 1911 is not a platform. Neither is a CZ.
