Hi-Power.

Agreed - or CZ or Beretta 92FS or Ruger P series. (Some of the Ruger P series are no longer built but are available for reasonable rates used - my P90 is one of my favorite guns).

Pick a 1911 in 9mm in your budget or a CZ (like an SP-01)

far from tactical
08-25-2012, 8:20 PM
SIG P226 or p229

I think the cz is gonna be your best bet with a 1911 platform your looking for, plus it's not gonna break the bank if your within a reasonable budget. Check out cz usa website, they even have a 22lr conversion for certain model guns. Other than that, your looking to spend over 1k for a direct 9mm 1911 ie; springfield, smith&wesson, kimber etc..

Or.. If you can wait look into to rock island, theres two ways to obtain a 9mm 1911 platform. One way is to look for a fire arm dealer to do an SSE conversion for the dedicated 9mm 1911. The other way is to look for the ca compliant RIA 38 super and purchase a few parts to convert it to a 9mm, parts run roughly $150 ish. You go that route you'll have the ability to shoot 2 calibers if you wish.

Me personally, if I can't go the rock island way, I'm definitely going for the cz sp01.

Well, you just bought a Brown so this should be in budget...

I agree. I ordered one for a shop about 20 days ago and it still hasn't shown up. Not happy with that shop right now, but like a fool (seemed like a good idea at the time) I've already paid in full.

Cant go wrong with a CZ.

I dig 1911s also, but not a fan of the magazine capacity.

Just get a CZ and call it a day!!! You won't look back. If you do you know any of us will gladly take it off your hands

Just be warned, once you buy a CZ 75, all future gun purchases will feel like a waste of money because you will never like another gun as much....

I vote for the SP01

1911 Springfield Loaded, Kimber, or Sig Sauer
Sig Sauer p226 9 mm CPO

I agree. Sadly nothing really seems "right" after going CZ.

G20 and be done.

Oh, what? No polymer? Okay, G20.

Seriously, how can you have requirements, but then say "preferably 1911 style"? If you already prefer it, then just get a 1911. Geez!

The single action version of the CZ75 is pretty sweet and all steel.

Add a Kadet 22 conversion kit and enjoy!

RIA tactical, Norinco 1911, GP100, or 686. I can keep naming but im keeping this relatively budget friendly for most people

Sounds like you already know what you want.... a 1911 in 9mm or .22LR.

BTW, what the heck does 1911-style mean anyways? beavertail? trigger?

I am guessing a P228, P229 or P239 for CCW.

Sig makes a P220 in 9mm, it's a single stack and not a double stacked magazine. One was for sale here about a week ago.

CZ 75b and if the budget allows now or in the future the Kadet conversion kit. Switch over in 15 seconds and shoot cheap .22LR from your full size all steel pistol, with the same trigger. Accurate and reliable, I use mine a lot.

Springfield 1911 in 9mm. Hard to find but well worth it. Maybe add a trigger job and new sights once you have the money.
