Default railed 1911 in 9mm

hello, i am finally fall in love with 1911s, just purchased emp and trp full rail. So i am basically a newb for 1911. now i am looking for railed 1911 in 9mm ( preferred SS, i want rail because i just like the look of it) since they may be my last gun of this year and for single stack division. any of those on roster? If not, any off roster recommendation for under 1500?

None on roster. Either convert it or add a rail. Or just pay a lot extra for an off roster if you can find it. Come to think of it I haven't seen too many 9mm 1911 w rail.

Springfield will convert an Operator for you. I asked a while back and was told it starts at $1100. Sucks since you could just buy their Combat Operator for $1500 if you lived in America.

In America I would spend a little more and get on the wait list for a SA WARREN Tactical 9mm.

The only stainless steel 9mm 1911 with a rail from factory I know of is the Dan Wesson Specialist however it's off roster and even in America it costs more than %1500

Railed 9mm would be so amazing.
Like a TLE/RL II in 9mm.

By the time you spend $$ to acquire a TRP rail model and have it converted by SA Custom shop, you are getting close to Wilson or Nighthawk money - but you'll still only have a TRP.

You'll be dead and bloated before you find a 9mm Specialist. Best bet will be the 9mm RO OP Skyhawk posted the link to. There's been 2 of those in the MP here within the last year.

If you can the Springfield range operator 9mm is worth getting at the right price. It by far my favorite to shoot at the moment. Makes me want to convert my full rail trp to 9mm by SACS

Get a CZ75 TS Orange, which has a very similar grip angle to a 1911.

Good looking gun.

The operator in the pic looks like he's about to drop a deuce in his pants; who's he on the phone with his mom?

Is it on the CA roster ??

Is it pretty accurate?

I just locked in a PPT deal for that RO 9 Operator. Feel like I just found a hen's tooth.

off roster recommendations for under $1500

My recommendation is you at least double your budget. It sucks I know but thats just how it is in this dump of a state.

Only 2 1911's in 9mm on the roster. Springfield and limber. Neither are railed.
