    Para P18

    Any one have one or had one thinking of one as a 9mm blaster so i can teach a few people how to shoot and then when i have to buy ammo cheeper than a 45

    One reason to switch is same style gun as carry i shot my 9mm glock today as im running low on 45 and it screwed the whole day i went from shooting 5 shot groups touching to lucky i could hit the plate with the glock and back to a 10 inch group with 1911 and lucky i bought it down with a 38 wheelie

    Needless to say i was disappointed in the later part of shooting so i want to go with a like style gun

    or is anyone can suggest a double stack 9mm other than the para

    STI or Para

    Bud, there's always STI, if you want to stick with a metal 1911 go with Para, just make sure you don't get anyhting with thier Parakote finish, I loved my Paras but that backed on stuff just don't last.


    Other than those two manufacturers I can't think of another that makes double stack 1911s in 9mm.


    ***Edited to add, Does it have to be double stack?
    STI also makes a single stack 9mm, and Springfields single stack 1911 in 9mm isn't all that bad either. Nighthawk Custom might still offer pistols in 9mm.

    If your set on double stacks get the Para.
