Wondering if one exists similar to say a Para without the new LDA trigger or whatever its called that seems to have a lot of problems.

Springfield makes some double-stack 1911s.

can you point me to a certain model? I just looked at their website and didnt find any

Why not just a regular old Para P14 without the LDA trigger? Or an STI or SVI. They have polymer grips, but a steel frame and slide. Or have one of the custom guys build you one from a Caspian frame and slide.

STI

Springfield Armory GI high capacity, it's a 13+1 .45 lists for $559.00, I saw it in the October November issue of On Target. Looks just like a regular GI only it has a little thicker grip width.

I would not rule out the SV or STI gun's. Way better than any other fat gun on the market.

CZ 97B
EAA Witness

My Vote is for the CZ and it is only around $500.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 6:43:49 AM EDT
Another vote for the CZ97B (if you have big hands).

You may also want to wait until SHOT Show...HK will be introducing a very interesting new .45 ACP pistol.

Para makes brand new singlestack and doublestack 1911's without the LDA trigger.

or the springfield, but STI would be the first choice.

Another vote for a single action Para.

Look around the online auctions or the EE. Bought a P-13 alloy for less than $450.00 shipped and ffl fees. Looked almost new. Be warned though Para Ordnance mag catch's are plastic and weak, also the mag springs are junk.

HK45.




In short, a HK USP .45 Action and slide, standard accessory rail, P2000-esque grip with interchangable backstraps, and a staggered magazing for 10+1 capacity with a similar feel to a 1911 grip width.

At least, that's what's rumored.

But it's still a polymer frame, right?

Link Posted: 2/1/2006 7:40:28 AM EDT
Yes its still poly framed
Link Posted: 2/1/2006 9:33:27 AM EDT
If you are thinking Springfield feel one first. The contours of the frame are different than the Para and don't feel as nice. I love my Para (older S/A custom one). I would stick with Para or STI (at least if you are going with the 1911 design).

Vote for CZ-97 here.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 7:33:06 AM EDT
There's also the Baby Eagle / UZI Eagle.

Entreprise used to make a hi-cap 1911 but I don't know if they're still in business.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 9:38:25 PM EDT
I want to know what type of problems the LDA is having. I have 1 no problems with almost 7000 rnds.
