Anyone have any experience with this firearm in 9mm? Are magazines readily available? Are internal parts interchangeable with the .45?

Do you know where I can get a good deal on one? (since they are not that common)

These are stainless steel guns and have not shown [ to me ] to be benifitting from the somehow decent 45's reportedly coming thru right now. I can add to the decent 45 report but not to a 9. Not because I havent been looking.

Well I can give a report on the M1911 A1 in 9mm. The M1911 A1 in 9mm feels just like any other pistol that I have held, felt like the same feel when I held a P220 or a M1911 in .45 ACP. It has a light recoil, less than the Beretta model 8000 Cougar that I fired that day also. Very good accuracy, I was firing the pistol at around 20 and 40 yards, was hitting in the black each time (remember the pistol will always be more accurate than the user can ever hope to be, so if you don't have good accuracy its normally you).

Its a very smooth and light trigger pull like most pistols in SA, actually I only had to basically tap the trigger and it would go off. There was one problem with the Hogue wrap around hand grips though, they would not allow you to full insert the magazine, I had to push the mag with my finger and then check to see if it was seated.

The magazines are pretty easy to find, nothing that a good magazine/internet order can't solve (usually they can be found cheaper there anyway).

I've got one I bought used. Trigger was a SOB until I had it worked on. I don't know if internals will swap out but somehow I'd doubt it.

Mags are easily found as Colt made several 9mm 1911s thru the years it seems.

Mine is the only SA 9mm 1911 I've ever seen but folks tell me they aren't "rare". Go figure.

interested in trading for a new Hi-Power Practical?

Framewise, I think only the ejector differs on the 9MM.
I did see a .45 to 9MM conversion listed in some earlier Springfield literature.
Like Bob says, "not rare", just more uncommon due to popularity of the .45ACP in that platform and lacking the 15+ rounds of other types, I would guess.

I already have one, thanks.

The SA 1911 .9mm is "the" hot gun in IDPA circles these days. (No power factor in IDPA, so the lower recoil you have the better.)
I have heard the SA custom shop has a hell of a backlog.

According to SA's web site, its a normal item in their line...
