I have a G34 that I've put about 4k rounds through shooting bullseye last year. It's very dependable but the clunky trigger is aggravating. I've tried polishing, glock drop in trigger but nothing has a good feel. Glock triggers for carry are ok but for target shooting pretty rough. I hate to put any more money into the gun.
For what you will sink into the Glock you can have a proper bullseye gun in an RO. I went down that road YEARS back shooting double action from revolver for timed and rapid fire against the tuned 1911’s. I won acknowledgement and compliments but that didn’t put higher points on the target.

I was going to buy this pistol for my wife , send it out to be customized
and set up for her but they only make this pistol in 10mm now . I wish
it was still in 9mm . Day late and a dollar short . :grumble:
I will say it is heavy for a 4"1911 she might not have liked it for that reason but that just gets you another 9mm 1911 :rolleyes:

Yep those darn 1911's .. :) I found a new 1911 manufacture in Illinois
about half an hour away from my house . Devil Dog Arms their 4.25 in
with a rail kind of fits the spec my wife is looking for . She wants what
she wants , and I can't blame her we all get focused on what we want .
She wants a commander size 1911 in 9mm with a rail . DW has one and
that is about it , or we go up to 3700.00 for an ED Brown or Wilson and
she does not want to spend that much .

I have the Specialist Commander in 9mm and love it. I like a Commander model with a rail too, it just balances well.

If Springfield made a Champion Operator 9mm, I'd probably have been satisfied with that.

The devil dog arms products look very interesting and really aren’t very expensive at all,, so long as they work properly.

I have both standard RO and Operators in 9MM, great guns, fell in love with the 9MM 1911s the first time I tried them, will probably have more.

I just bought a SS loaded target in 9mm. It's a great gun, and a tremendous value.

"Bomar" rear sight, ambi safety, beaver tail, long trigger, high cut front strap, beveled mag well, skeletonized hammer...

Love my 9mm 1911... BUT..

I'm having trouble with the front end of the extractor lifting up and jamming against the slide.
It is pressed into the frame, and NOT secured with a roll pin.
GREAT shooting piece!!! Recent competition I hit 42 Bulls and six just outside the Bull. Love this pistol! But three and half weeks after receiving ti... Back it goes to Springfield. Damn. Five weeks of this Competition left too!
Time for the TRP and a little more recoil, right!
Good luck all.

Well, I know this post was a while ago, but...
My problem turned out to be my Wilson Combat 10-round magazines!!!
They are just a CH too tall, and when I slammed them into the SA Loaded 9mm, They smacked the bottom of the ejector, pushing it up out of the frame, and then wedged the ejector between the slide and frame.
Sent it to Springfield and they (as they SHOULD have done initially) drilled and roll pinned it properly. Not a problem since. Even using the very same mags that "caused" the problem!!!
Shame on SA for saving $5.00 and gluing the ejector into the frame.
All the best to everyone.

Sarge, same thing that happened to my EMP4, but I was using the oe Springfield mags and CMC mags, they all hit the bottom outer corner of the ejector and also caused it to come loose but I replied mine using 2 part epoxy, I had zero faith in Springfield at that point.

I clearanced the ejector before reglueing it and everything has been fine in the last 5k rds. I also checked and clearances the ejector on my SS 9mm range officer at that time because I found it also hitting, the ejector has never come loose in 10k rds now.

I believe that gluing the ejector is not the real problem here but the fact that the magazines all seem to hit them.

I have a couple thousand rounds through my SA EMP4 9mm. Great gun. Reliable and accurate.
That's good to hear; I just bought a 9mm EMP4 a couple of weeks ago. I've put about 50 rounds through it so far and it's been flawless. As smooth as the smaller pistol is in 9mm, I'd think a full-size 9mm 1911 would recoil like a .22 .

The only thing I don't like about my EMP4 is the ambi thumb safety. It doesn't get in the way, or anything, but since I'm right handed the "other" side is as useless as boobs on a boar hog. Neither of my other two 1911's have an ambi safety.

And you would be correct . No recoil at all

I'm considering getting a 1911 chambered in 9mm. I like the Springfield Range Officer Elite in 45. Anyone here use a 1911 in 9mm?
I have three; a four inch Wilson Professional in 9mm, a 4 1/4” multi-caliber hi-cap RIA with a rail (I don’t like rails on 1911s) in 9mm and 22 TCM, and a five inch Springfield RO in 9mm.

I also have eight other 1911s in God’s (and JMB’s) caliber; the .45 acp.

9mm 1911s are great shooting pistols, and anyone that doesn’t like them just hasn’t shot one yet. :biglaugh:

They are just a CH too tall,
Sarge, great terminology. Not going to ask what "CH" stands for b/c we all outta know. Need something to smile about these days.. :)
