  1. Dec 28, 2002 · My ammo selection has been based on performance (accuracy/precision) and price rather than reliability. I have found my 1911 really performs best with 124gr 9mm. Groups are much tighter than with any 115gr rounds I've tried. Of course, 124gr rounds tend to be more difficult to find at a good (low) price.

  3. Apr 30, 2009 · Rem 124 Gr JHP. 8.0 Gr of AA7 (that's max - you should start about 7.4 Gr) I find 7.8 grains shoots nearly as well as the 8.0 gr load. I've used both of these loads in a Ruger SR9, a Kimber Stainless Ultra Carry II, a Taurus PT111 Titanium, and a Springfield Stainless Loaded Target. They shoot good in all of these guns.

    1911s are great guns that helped win back-to-back World Wars, but the classic .45 ACP chambering isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so 9mm has become probably the most popular alternative. One of the primary draws of 9mm over .45 ACP for 1911s is the significantly lighter recoil. In fact, the steel frame of a 1911 means that you’ll get even less felt rec...

    Colt Defender

    First up is the Colt Defender, a fan-favorite 1911 in both its .45 and 9mm forms, made by the original manufacturer of the 1911. With a 3-inch barrel, the Defender is on the more compact sidefor a 1911, but still manages to keep recoil to a minimum, making this a light, easy-to-shoot pistol. The small size doesn’t come at the expense of capacity either, with an 8-round magazine. All in all, the Defender is ideal for concealed carry. It’s accurate and reliable out of the box. The enhanced hamm...

    Ruger SR1911 Lightweight Commander-Style

    Ruger has made a name for itself as one of the most budget-friendly manufacturers in the firearms world, consistently offering a whole lot of gun for not a lot of money. The SR1911 continues this trendby providing an excellent 1911 experience on a budget. Released over a decade ago now, the SR1911 has earned a reputation as a “working man’s” (or woman’s) 1911, and the newer Lightweight Commander has done nothing to tarnish that reputation. It offers some nice benefits over the standard 5” Gov...

    Remington R1 Enhanced

    Retailing for about $700, the Remington R1 Enhancedis the most affordable gun I recommend here, but don’t think that means it’s not still a great quality pistol. In fact, the Remington R1 Enhanced boasts a stainless steel match-grade barrel, a fiber optic front sight, and an adjustable, skeletalized match trigger. What allows Remington to keep this version of the 1911 so affordable is its simplicity. With its checkered walnut grips, enhanced wide thumb safety, and tactile front and rear slide...

    The 1911 is an already great gun, so pairing it with the most-beloved modern pistol cartridge sounds like a match made in heaven. While some might see a 1911 in anything but .45 ACP as sacrilegious, we definitely think it's more a case of someone getting chocolate in the peanut butter and making something greater than the sum of its parts. These 19...

  6. Aug 5, 2008 · The 9mm 1911s make a lot of sense in these specialized roles. The goal is to make every element of pistol shooting a habit (grip, stance, breathing, trigger control) so that the mind is free to concentrate on aligning the sights. It should be obvious that aligning the sights of a 9mm 1911 is no different than aligning those of a .45.
