I used to think so myself but since I love the platform, I branched out to 9mm and recently 10mm. Love shooting them all but prefer the 5" or 4" over the shorter models

Dan Wesson Vigil in 9mm is one to look at.

I have a Kimber Stainless ll Target in 9mm and it is without a doubt one of the most enjoyable guns in my collection to shoot. A 5" 1911 chambered in 9mm reminds me of shooting .38 wadcutter ammo in an N frame S&W. I'm sure Springfield Colt or Ruger would be just as enjoyable. In California we are limited to what is on the roster and what happens to be available. The Kimber is accurate and dependable I use Wilson 10 round mags and shoot IDPA ESP with it.

That Cali "roster" thing just makes me laugh.

Wilson Combat EDC X9 9 MM 15 rounds. It is light and concealable. Hands Down my favorite 1911 and my every day carry.

There's a NICE F/S 9mm Colt on my local Armslist currently (NOT mine). Want me to PM you a link?

Everything recommended from Wilson custom to RIA and not one mention of one of the best values in 1911s, the Ruger SR1911. I have two in 45, one full size and one Officer’s model ( my EDC). Both are super reliable, very accurate, and modestly priced compared to Sigs, Kimber, or Springfield’s.
Both of my 1911s in 9mm are Kimber, one lightweight Commander and a new all steel Aegis. 1911s in 9mm are a joy to shoot, but the Rugers will shoot with them any day, every day. I don’t think the Ruger offerings in9mm should be overlooked!

As an alternative to all the aforementioned 1911 larger frame pistols in 9mm you might consider the Springfield Armory EMP. Very carryable, reliable, a couple (3) of versions. I like mine and have friends who share the enthusiasm.

I have a Springfield Range Officer in 9mm. Very accurate. In fact the Range Officer at our local Sheriff's range says that it is one of his favorites.

Best 9mm 1911

I have a safe full of 1911’s both .45 & 9mm Sig, Springfield’s & Colts in 9mm. What I have determined is none of those have been on my hip since the Wilson Combat EDC X9 came home with me! I’ve put a lot of work into some of them, but could have saved a ton of $$ and safe space by getting the X9 sooner! That pistol is made for my hand, one piece at a time, amazing build. Over 3000 rounds never a hiccup of any kind no matter what I feed it. I got a GI 1911 on my 18th birthday, so I’ve been through a few. My opinion, save some money and get the X9!

I have a Ruger 5 inch, a Ruger Commander size both in 45 ACP and a Ruger Officer size in 9mm. My arthritis is causing the 45 to hurt a little more, a the 9mm works wonders for me. Also, I have an Armscore in 45 acp officer size under the High Standard label, plus a Government Issue Ithaca 1911 in 45 acp. Can't see the sights very well on the issue.So I agree that depending on your physical being,a 9mm in 1911 might be great.

Agree...I have the EMP 4 and the EMP Contour so far I've had no issues, found them to be accurate and comfortable to carry.

I fourth it. I got a Rock Standard in 9mm for just under 500, with the rebate that had now expired so it would be a tad above 500 now. That's one step up from the GI version, it has the Beavertail and better sights.

For the GI model take maybe 60 bucks off that. I am talking with the shipping, tax and transfer fees.

I have a 100 rounds thru mine so far and no FTF's or FTE's and I am just using the magazine that came with it. Better magazines are on my want list.

For the money, I believe they are a great value. (And I was for ages: "If it aint a Colt and aint a .45, I don't want to talk about it" kind of guy")

But I am too old and neither want nor need the kick and expense of a .45. I still have em, just plan on shooting the 9mm more.

Good luck.

1911 in 9mm - low cost - Rock Island or American Classic or ATI - are good starter 1911 in 9mm. After using them a while, might wish to replace some of the firing parts with more hard parts - but I have found then to be excellent entry level/learning pistols.
American made: I have found that Ruger 1911 9mm were tighter than Colt 9mm when having them side by side. Ruger 1911 9mm (and little else other than 10/22) is good value. Next step is the new series from D. Wesson. Old Kimbers were good. Was a period when not-so-good quality control.
