Rock Island Armory has them. They are fat in the grip, as you would expect. 17 round capacity

The 1911 9mm isn't the only game in town. There's several double stack 9's to choose from. I like the 1911's platform but I prefer it left as J.M.B designed it over 100 years ago. It even took me awhile to get use to the idea of the 9mm in the 1911's.

I like th grip of a 1911 as opposed to a double stack pistol. I carried a Glock 17 for a few years but switched to a 1911 because of the grip. Fits me better than a double stack, and so I shoot it better than a double stack

There are double stack options though. Heck, there's even a double barreled option

I hear ya!
There is just something about the feel of a 1911. I have a G26 & G19 then I have the Browning Hi Powers.

STI offers a double stack that seems to sell well.

I just think there are better designs than the venerable 1911 out there today that can be had for less money without the compromise in quality. I would even go so far as to say you can get a better quality pistol for the money spent by looking elsewhere.

There are a host of striker fired pistols that would fall into that category (value for money spent) as well as a number of DA/SA guns, both decocker and manual safety designs that are also popular and of better value for the dollars spent. Examples in no particular order of a few might be:

Beretta 92 Series
SIG 226 Series
CZ75/SP-01 Series
SIG 320 Series
S&W M&P & Glock line up

Take Care

Bob

It is if you live where 10 round magazines are the largest allowed by law. There are a number of good 10 round magazines for the 9mm 1911. A single stack 9mm 1911 is also very nice if you don't like the chunky grip frame of a double column pistol.

If you build a double stack 9mm on a 1911 platform, is it still a 1911? To me it wouldn't be, because that is not the way the gun was designed. Like others, I like the way the 1911 "feels" a double stack changes that feel. Now, I do like double stack 9MMs and have two. They say Beretta and Sig Sauer on the sides

For those with smaller hands a single stack 1911 is more comfortable.

I have never shot the double barreled but got to handle it in the store once. Not exactly a concealed carry piece and you need to do some weight lifting to get ready to hold in shooting position. But it has one xell of an impression factor.

Here's a trick shot video with the Arsenal 2011.

Having owned several widebody 1911(still own a single stack 9mm)there is nothing like the feel of a tuned s/a trigger imho. That being said these were range toys for me. My friends carry Glocks/M&P, myself a XDM 5.25 Competition. A bit large yes, but with a good trigger and 19+1 capacity I can look at this striker fired Tupperware as a tool...not as a classic thing of beauty. Just my 2 cents.
