    So 1911 9mm Single Stacks...

    As has been expressed throughout this thread, there are good options at a lot of different price points. I am one that likes 1911s for their aesthetics almost as much as I want it to be built well and run as close to 100% reliably as possible. For this reason, I tend to gravitate to Nighthawk, Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, and Guncrafter Industries. All of these start around the $3000 mark. Dan Wesson is also putting out some great 1911s at a slightly lower price point. I currently have a Guncrafter Industries Hellcat being built, just hope it makes the 43 ounce weight limit for single stack. If not, I will likely have a gun built specifically for that division. If you haven't checked out Guncrafter Industries, definitely give them a look. Like Wilson Combat and Nighthawk, they are located in Berryville, Arkansas. The owner, Alex Zimmerman, worked for Wilson for many years, then wanted to do his own thing. They are putting out 1911s that are every bit as good as a Wilson, Nighthawk, or Ed Brown and have some unique models and features.

    Which 1911

    Ok I’m not sure if the Hellcat is allowed in single stack. It has the added weight of the big “bushing”, but I believe the barrel is pretty standard. Another question - in limited division, are the 21 round STI mags legal, or would that throw me into open? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Which 1911

    Absolutely nothing wrong with any of the 1911s mentioned, and we sure are spoiled with all of the options and manufacturers putting out various 1911s these days, but I think I am going to have Guncrafter Industries build me a Hellcat Government 9mm for limited 10 and single stack. Definitely an expensive gun, but man they are cool! I’m having a great time getting into competitive shooting and it’s costing me a good bit of money as well lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
