Can anyone tell me who makes hi-capacity 1911 pistols besides Para Ordinance?
I'm not looking for one as a carry gun but I appreciate your input.Springfield makes a double stack 1911.
The whole point of a 1911 for me is that carries very flat against your side. Seems like one with a thick grip would defeat the purpose.
You can get backup mags that carry 10, which gives you a respectable 11 rounds. Plenty. Learn how to do a tactical reload.
I carried a Para while working evenings alone at a gun shop. When 4 "urban youth" wearing their ball caps bills forward and pulled low over oversized sunglasses backed an old Chevy “ghetto cruiser” up to the front door the day after a gang shootout up the road, I wouldn’t have traded those 14 rounds of .45 HP for all the tea in China. Heavy? A little bit but it was my EDC and I had no problems with it.In another life I carried a Hi-Cap .45.
Let me just say that with a full magazine it is luggage. Heavy luggage.
I am older and wiser now and the smaller the better.
Charles Daly is now importing 1911s with the BUL frame, Wilson Combat used to have the KZ45 as well which IIRC used the BUL frame. The mags can still be found if you look hard enough.I have a high cap .45, but they don't make them like that anymore. It is a Kimber Polymer Custom and it came with one 13rd magazine and one 10rd magazine. It has a polymer frame that was manufactured by a company called BUL if I remember correctly. It was only produced for a couple of years I believe. I wish I would have gotten a few more mags for it about 10 years ago when I had a chance!
They're the gun world version of vaporware it seems like, I've never heard of one in the real world.
