    1911 in 9mm

    Ever since buying the XSE Commander I have had the itch to get another 1911(you can never have to many) and was thinking about a 9mm commander model. Question is, anyone have one? How do you like it? Noticebly less recoile than the .45?

    My wife has been asking recently about getting her permit and she has shot my .45's and wasn't very fond of them so I figure the 9mm would be a little more tame for her, and it would give me a reason to get another 1911 (like I said before you can never have to many)

    I was thinking about a old school 70 series 9mm commander, but they are hard to come by, but I shall keep my eyes open for one.

    I love your way of thinking, you can never have to many 1911's.

    The 9mm in a 1911 is a great gun and yes is much less recoil or snap than a .45, with the right HP load they are also very effective for a defense gun too. Problem is as you said they are hard to come by but would be an enjoyable gun for your wife to shot. Keep looking one will show up.

    I have a series 70 Lightweight Commander in 9MM and a 38 Super barrel to interchange with. The gun runs SUPER in either caliber. I remember buying the setup for 199.00 (under 200 bucks) in 1980. I never got rid of it, because it was a great setup for a pistol.

    It's still there in the case if anybody wants it. I can send you a pic of it, or post it on Tuesday night

    I would go for a 38 super, just haven't seen one in a commander model. After I bought the XSE I am hooked on the commander models, I like them 10 fold better than the full size, was even thinking about selling my SA Mill-Spec full size to fund the new commander.

    I know Para-Ordnance makes the new Hawg 9. Shorter barrel but looks like a great gun.

    Non junkie here - just ''enthusiast"

    Leaving aside the actual 9mm platform version - suffice to say that 9mm is certainly that bit more controllable plus the capacity bonus.

    To be honest - tho it ain't a 1911 - the BHP is an excellent platform IMO and of course JMB's creation. That is certainly a gun I like immensely and probably has top spot for me in SA 9mm.
