What would you say the best 9mm 1911 are ? ( that are still available)

Post by bruce em on Sun May 31, 2015 9:39 pm

First topic message reminder :

Any commercial or all custom?  Who made them? price point? Any Springfields out there?

What features did you like? ie barrel make, twist, diameter etc

How about ammo/loads for it?

thanks !

Ok, felt recoil.

I just had carpal tunnel surgery and my 9MM shooting 115gr bullets @ 1100fps  feels much easier on my wrist than my 185gr wadcutter softball loads.

Damn right!

Not for me. The 9mm is very "snappy". The 45 is more of a push. But my 45 has a slide mounted dot and the 9mm has iron sights. But the 9mm is less felt recoil than my 45 hardball gun.

Both my 9MM and 45acp have frame mounted optics so my comparison is apples to apples. I'm not sure which is really generating more energy but at least for me the 9MM is more comfortable to shoot. It could be the 45 lockup isn't as good as the 9, they are both sprung with the heaviest spring that will still allow slide lockback.

I just ran a calculator
The 9mm 115gr is generating 308 ft lb and a power factor of 126.50
The 45 185gr is generating 250 ft lb and a power factor of 144.30

not sure what that means to felt recoil, too many variables like the amount of energy absorbed coming out of lockup.
