Slide or Frame mount for a 9mm 1911

Post by StevenB on 4/11/2015, 7:54 pm

I've had a search and there are a few posts about slide vs frame mount for a 1911, but they all talk about 45acp. 45 is out for me, so I'll be looking a building on a 9mm.

Pretty much all of the things that are posted about mounts for .45acp 1911s are true for 9mm 1911s.

Why is .45 out for you? So many of our matches require a .45acp that it's very uncommon for one of us to never have one.

Last 14 national champions shoot two guns. 

For 9mm I'd go with a frame mount, specifically the type that David Sam's does as its pretty low to the bore. 

I am not a fan of bridge type mounts.

Without a 45acp you can only shoot 2/3 of any match that requires a 22, CF & 45acp!

Having said that the majority of 1911's that use optics are slide mounts, I prefer a frame mount.

Here is a link to a pair of 9mm that KC built, mine is the frame mount

I noticed a different thread where he stated his area doesn't allow any pistols over .38 to be owned. Makes me wonder where that is. I think he's in Australia. No .45acp sounds terrible!

oops, need to update my profile.

yeah in Australia. For handguns we are limited to .38 cal max and a max of 10 round mags (somehow a 357mag is ok, but 45acp isn't). There is a high cal permit, but it is only available to those who shoot met-sil and western action. One state has allowed 45acp 1911's for Classic division in IPSC also.

From the association that runs NRA Bullseye down here, we shoot an 1800 match

Welcome to this crazyness.  I saw the SSAA  Target Pistol poster on their website. Too bad about your caliber limits.

hopefully with the slow erosion of allowing disciplines to have high-cal they will just dump the laws altogether.

I doubt BE will get an exemption anytime soon as there isn't as a big a following for it in Aus as service, Action shooting (mainly IPSC, but a little Action Pistol and Steel Challenge), and the ISSF/Olympic disciplines
