What's a good price for these? There's one at my local gun shop I'm thinking about purchasing...

I know they're very hard to come by but are they good guns? Any info is appreciated.

I have one, bought it online for $859.00 last year November + $15.00 shipping, I've seen it in LGS going for $959.00 as well as other online store currently selling it at almost 1K, get one you won't regret having the 1911 in 9mm

Are you joking? $900 for a 9mm 1911?

You are better off buying the SA 1911-A1 GI model. Perfect gun for only $550 ...not sure why you want a 1911 in 9mm ....

Main reason. Cost of ammo is way cheaper than the 45acp.

I bought mine locally for around $1100 OTD. I paid too much, but this was during the Obama craze. The 9mm 1911 platform is fantastic. Also, ammo costs are substantially cheaper when compared to a 45. If I could do it again I would definitely buy the 1911 Loaded 9mm.

I have two, both bought online at budsgunshop. First one was priced at $820 last year and the second one was priced at $830 earlier this year. Adding FFL fees of $50 to $75, OTD price should be around $900.

Budsgunshop does not have them in stock all the time but if you are not in a hurry, just check their site once in a while. Another good site is JetGuns.com, their prices are even lower than buds, I recommend checking this site as well.

I'm just not partial to full-framed 9mm HGs ...my opinion :cool2:

yes I have, like I said just my opinion.

for the OP: I think you can find a better deal than $900 for that 1911 9mm, especially if the gun is used.

you can also find the kimber 9mm target for around the same price.

Used go for somewhere in the 800+ range -

Good gun - Am partial to the older style without the adjustable sight -

It's really too bad SA doesn't make a more "traditional" blued or parkerized model -

I got one and it is becoming my favorite 1911. I got mine on a trade and I would value the trade at a little over $1k

Those 1911 Springfield Fully loaded are nice guns.

I LOVE 9mm 1911s, it's almost like shooting a 22! Lot's of fun!

Not exactly a 22lr, but similar. I can take advantage of shooting cheaper bullets (reloads), but in a snap can be called on to shoot some powerful reloads that I've chronoed - 125 grain JHPs at 1310 fps. It doesn't hurt it one bit if you have a fully supported chamber.

I'm a 1911 9mm fan. I have 5 and all are S/A. Reduced recoil, cheaper ammo and that great 1911 trigger. What's not to love?

I just got one for 999.99 plus fees. They dont last long in stores. You might find a good used one here for 850-900. I never thought Id say this about SA loaded, but I have already put 900 rounds through mine and it has been amazing. You'll need to get the trigger cleaned up. Metalform mags with spacer in the back wont lock the slide back, but SA mags made by MF are good. Get one, fun and much cheaper to shoot than a 45. NM serial numbers come with a good fit and finish! Good luck!

they're very fun to shoot and 9mm ammo is less then your typical .45

I've seen it at Cheaper than dirt and other sources too...looking to pick one up too, but I'd have to get my SA 1911 first lol

That's exactly what I was thinking. It seems to me that they can barely crank out enough .45's for everyone or else they would be much more on top of their 9mm 1911 line...

+1 on SA Loaded 1911 9mm. Love mine. Although a 45 will be my next HG purchase down the line.

$900 is around the better prices I've seen on gunbroker for a new one. If you can get one at your LGS and avoid the additional transfer fees and shipping, etc, then terrific! I probably could have saved about $100 if I'd found mine locally, but I'm just glad to have my 1911.

Good luck and enjoy!

Attaboy - Now stock up on 9mm ammo -

Continue your support of that range and your future buys will be benificial to both -

Now for the trigger job...

1) Should I send it back to SA? Do they pay shipping or is that out of my pocket?

or

2) Bring it to Jim Hoag for an appx 4 lb trigger job?

1. You pay for shipping from what I've read. They only pay for shipping when they are dealing with a warranty issue.

2. How heavy is your trigger right now? I took mine to the local gunsmith and it weighed in at 4.9, I'm trying to decide if I should go down to 3.5-4 (range only). How much does Jim charge for a trigger job?

Your trigger is 5 lbs but feels like 8 or 9. Once its cleaned up it'll feel crisp and much lighter. 1911 trigers are not that hard to do for a smith that works on 1911s. Find someone locally, should cost you 50 bucks.

Every time I get a bug up my rear to get a 9mm 1911 and start searching for one they are all about $100-300 more than their .45acp counterpart. Hopefully you will have much better luck in your search than I have in the past.

Never understood the rationale in that myself, but I'd certainly like to have one.

I think the price difference probably has something to with the fact that most 1911s are 45acp. So when they come in other calibers people can demand more - even when used. Especially for the lighter caliber like the 9mm, which is extremely popular in its own right. Could be wrong.

In any case, the price scared me away from the 9mm and just got a 45ACP 1911 and stuck with my Glock for 9mm. If I ever find the right deal on a 9mm 1911 and I actually have money to spend at the time I'll be all over it. Seems like those amazing deals only come a week or two after you just spent all your spending money. Damn that guy Murphy and his stupid law! ;)
