    But why would you want to carry a pistol that was designed to use .45ACP?

    The only reason I can think of is the cost of ammo, 9mm vs .45acp.

    It's like taking a Corvette Z06, and putting a 150hp straight 6cyl in it like the first Corvette in the early 50's IMO

    I have several of the 1911- 9MM's mentioned here and more chambered in 45 ACP. The answer to why have the 9MM is simple. If you get to shoot 170 to 200 rounds a week every week for almost two years at my age hand tendons start acting up. Way less recoil with the 9's. Still the same fun at the range and shooting both is more fun yet.

    Finding the 9MM 1911's took some time but they are out there.

    Based on my experience with the Sig P238 which is not positive, I would urge you to shy away from the 938.

    However have you considered the STi Ranger or Trojan?

    I think you mean the Spartan. The Trojan is about 1K.

    I can vouch for the Rock Island 9mm tactical. Tremendous shooter. More accurate than my Kimber Ultra or Springfield Loaded. But, it is 9mm and the others are .45 so, not a fair comparison, I suppose. Had to finally find the best mag and that is the Springfield. I load it with +P Georgia Arms gold dot HP and it does a good job.

    The last 1911 in the world I thought I would like would be is a 9mm but boy howdy, I can double tap much better with it and, a heap cheaper to shoot.
    Still, I carry 45 acp most of the time.

    If you don't need an exact "clone", but want a pistol with the same basic controls as a 1911, the Hi Power is hard to beat. I'm a 1911 fan, and I really enjoy shooting the Hi Power (or in my case, a FEG PJK-9HP, a Hi Power in Hungarian clothing).
