Default Would love feedback from Springfield 1911 9mm owners

Hello. I am considering a Springfield 1911 9mm "Target Model" 1469832
PI9134LCA is the model at Sportsmans Warehouse.

I would love some feedback from owners. Reliability etc.
My use is strictly recreational target shooting at the range, not self defense. My only other firearm is a Buckmark 22 (love it). I want to avoid the occasional jams that are unavoidable with a 22. I rented a 9mm 1911 and it was great fun. I need to buy a Calif. compliant 1911. Overall, is the Springfield a good choice? Thank you!

That's it, one of two choices

Iíve had one for a couple of years now. Probably a couple of thousand rounds through it now. Ran all types of factory rounds of all nose shapes perfectly. Even with my plated reloads.

I started into bullet casting and found out it had a tight chamber and started getting stuck cast bullets in the chamber. Had the barrel reamed and now it shoots everything well.

The only thing I dislike are the stock all black adjustable sights. But thatís an easy fix.

Ended up putting a non-ILS MSH and new grips.

(Itís the stainless one)


When I picked this up, it was between this and the Kimber. Ended up with the SA due to my prior experience with SA customer service being extremely accommodating and Kimberís horror stories. Though Iím still willing to try a Kimber in the future.

My Target Loaded has been great. Fun shooter, cheap to feed...and I have found that the more I shoot it....the smoother it runs these days.

Got very accurate with it...put a FO on the front too...

Lube, shoot alot, repeat....

I've got the same gun except with the fixed Novak sights. It's a very fun gun to shoot, very reliable and accurate.

Things I don't like about it;
1. Full-length guide rod - just a personal preference for the GI style (and too lazy to change it out).
2. Springfield Internal Lock - again, just a personal preference against being forced to buy a safety feature I don't want, although I must admit it makes take-down and reassembly a snap.

None of the things I dislike about the gun would keep me from buying another, and are more related to me being a Curmudgeonly Luddite who hates change.

I've had my loaded target for over 7 years and other than it's dislike of Winchester white box I have had almost no problems with it. Six months after I bought it the rear sight blade broke off while shooting it but I blame myself because I was readjusting it a lot that day (experimenting). I sent it back to Springfield for warranty work and then it went to SACS to get a few things done to it. Ever since I've gotten it back I have had no issues with and love shooting it. I estimate it's got around 10k through it and still runs great.

I have one and it shoots fine. Unfortunately, it fails to lock the slide back on the last round about 30% of the time.

Nothing wrong with buying a used just takes more legwork and daily checking on the Marketplace.

Loved shooting mine in IDPA.
Smooth, accurate, comfortable in the hand.
A few idiosyncrasies due to the 1911 not being designed for the 9mm but nothing major.

Same here!! But to be fair iím Using 10 round magazines with it.

However I found it worked better when I really lubed up the slide stop shaft.


I am not against full length guide rods but I donít like how this one needs an Allen wrench to remove, however, Iíll live with it as there is no reason to spend money to swap it out vs just putting an Allen key in my range bag.

It's annoying mostly because it wasn't that cheap of a gun to buy.

I have one, similar issues as reported below, found the overall finish sharp, lots of edges - have it with a Smith now replacing the Springfield parts, tuning and dehorning


Have my eyes on the marketplace for a good price on a used Kimber in 9mm.

I have one, itís a fun gun. Though if forced to pick, my choice would be a CZ75 SA over it as 9mm target gun. The CZ has a very good factory trigger, is noticeably more accurate in my hands, and itís a native 9mm platform. My 9mm Springer has bobbled a time or two; Iíd be happier if it was Commander sized rather than full size.

The CZ75 SA has fixed sights, but shoots pretty much bang on for me. You can always toss on an aftermarket rear if you want. ( LPA? )

The only thing that bites with the 2 piece recoil rod is finding out later the front section fell off at the range. It will still function even with just the rear shaft.

I had one, but sold it. The take-down pin is really tight. I put painters tape on the frame and used a credit card to put the pin back in to avoid the idiot scratch.

I wasn't as accurate with this as my Glock or SP01. And I didn't like the safety and the short grip so I sold it.

It was very reliable.

Had one, SA loaded, silver, 9mm, on CA roster. Get it you will happy with it. This 1911 9mm sees the range more often than the rest of .45ACP 1911.

Default Would love feedback from Springfield 1911 9mm owners

A couple of things I didn't like about mine but are easily fixed. The mainspring housing safety, which I fixed by swapping out the ILS internals with regular internals. And, the slide moved too slow for competition. Mine came with a very light recoil spring. On a follow-up shot, I would pull the trigger and it wouldn't go bang. I realized I was waiting for the slide to catch up causing me to have to pull the trigger a third time. This was easily fixed by replacing the light factory recoil spring with an ISMI 10lb recoil spring.

Itís been a great shooter ever since.

just get your 1911 in 45 and later on when you learn to reload you can cook yourself a batch of soft shooting 45's that feel like 9mm. This way you can have the versatility of both calibers in that sense. A whole lot cheaper than owning two 1911's in two separate calibers

I have a springfield 1911A1 in 9mm, I like it, the trigger is pretty good, groups well - could seriously stand some more stoning of sharp edges.

Otherwise the only downside is it does not feed as well as any glock I have.
It often catches and destroys the last case ejected from a magazine.
I wouldn't bet my life on it.

Mine is loose, gritty, and rattly, has lots of sharp edges and the internals and thumb safety were junk. Horrible trigger.

Replaced internals and slide stop with EGW parts, Kimber ambi thumb safety, GI guide rod and Dawson IPSC magwell/msh. Greider short trigger and thin front sight.

Now it's still loose and rattly, but it's smooth and not quite as loose or rattly thanks to the EGW oversized slide stop and barrel bushing.

It was always pretty accurate and reliable, that hasn't changed but for what they charge, it should not be loose or rattle.

Very accurate, low recoil pistol for target shooting - I upgraded to FO sights since I didn't like the blacked out ones and they are excellent.
I love shooting my 1911s - especially the great triggers - and the 9mm ammo is a lot cheaper. If I just wanted one heavy, accurate 9mm for the range I'd probably pick at a CZ75 or 226 instead, but the 1911 is super fun to shoot and gets a lot of range time!

I like mine. Not as tight as a custom 1911, but it goes bang. Its my new go to match pistol. I wanted a CZ Shadow 2, I think this comes pretty close. Custom bead blasted finish, trigger job, polished feed ramp and ghetto grip tape front strap.

Its dirty coz it gets used. Bead blasted finish is grippy, but hella dirt magnet.


I replaced the FLGR with a standard recoil spring plug from Ed Brown. Makes field stripping that much easier, hopefully making me clean it more.

Mine had a 11lb trigger out.of the box and I had replacement parts arrive before I even took delivery of the gun. That being said, my slide to frame fit is close to my custom guns and it is a ton of fun to shoot.

I didn't even shoot it before the mods. Replaced the, msh, sear, front sight, grips and ambi safety.

I enjoy shooting my Springfield 1911 9mm. It is my favorite 9mm these days.

My only change was replacing the two piece guide rod with a one piece Wilson Combat rod. Now, no tools required for disassembly.

Had one, found the milling/cutting of the slide way too sharp. Even racking the slide hurts. Didn't want to spend money to debur it, sold it.

Mine wasn't this extreme but the slide was definitely tight. Would just occasionally hang at the beginning, few times slide wouldn't close all the way, but 5 or so mags and it was gtg. Lots of carbon on my trigger hand and arm lol

I shot somebody else's kimber 9mm before buying my Springfield, and although it shot just as smooth at the time, when I went into a local LGS to see if they had or could get ahold of either the Springfield or Kimber, he had a Springfield that was in jail from the person who let me shoot their Kimber.

Apparently they started having tons of issues with it and had to send it in to Kimber and were not happy with the CS experience. I always preferred the Springfield aesthetic so it was an easy choice for me.

LOL yeah as my smith said knife makers could take note of how sharp springfields are. get out a dremil or stone to smooth them out.

replaced full length spring guide rod is not needed.

I have the Springfield loaded target stainless 9mm and a Kimber Custom II in .45. Between the two, the Kimber is a much nicer gun. Smoother edges for sure. If I had to do it over again Id get the Kimber 9mm. I just think Kimbers are better 1911s than Springfield.

The sharp edges, or rather the not-rounded edges don’t bother me at all. I mean i’m Just using it at the range, not carrying it or hugging it.

For being only one of two options on the roster for a 9mm 1911, Id say it’s a solid choice over the kimber.

I’ve had mine for about 4 years before I sold it. Ended up keeping my Range Officer in 9mm

I don't care for mine..... I've had issues with stovepiping, failure to eject, not opening after last round. I sent it back to springfield once already. It worked fine for about one time out at the range, but then it started its crap again.

I use it for our local 3-gun and all the feed, stovepipe, etc issues got really, really annoying... so I bought me a new gun to replace my 9mm 1911.

NOT HAPPY!

(worst part is.... the gun I bought to replace it, is the one I wanted when I originally went into the store... but they didn't have the one I wanted.... expensive mistake! I shoulda just waited!)
