911 9mm! Pistol suggestions please!


#1

I’ve always been a 1911 45acp guy.that being said, I’ve had little experience or trigger time with 9mm polymers. Was hoping you guys could give me some suggestions for a quality, reliable high capacity 9mm handgun. I have very large hands so compacts are mostly out of the question. Thanks…,

1911 9x19 ! fantastic shooter. Best “Money:Quality” would be Dan Wesson Specialist


#3

CZ SP-01 is a great pistol, and the SP-01 Phantom is one of my favorites, the polymer version. Backstraps are available for the Phantom to adjust for larger hands.


#4

Look no further, you my friend, are looking for the Wilson EDC X9.

I was under the impression you wanted a 1911 type platfotm, so here’s a follow up suggestion: IWI Jericho 941 F9. Upgraded with Meprolight Tru-Dot sights, Hogue finger grooved grip, Surefirefire X300-A Ultra and Mec-Gar CZ75B 19-round mags (they are compatible). Blade-Tech can mold you a holster w/ Tek-Lok specific to that setup.

I was leaning polymers for capacity purposes, however, the wilson edc you mentioned seems to solve that concern. The Jericho you also mentioned strongly peaked my interests as well…


#8

Thank you all for quality input! Much appreciated. Now I have some good ideas in which direction to go for something I’m going to entrust my life with.


#9

Nothing wrong with the P-10C - I carry the White Nitride version myself, great sidearm. Is the grip too small for you? Did you try the large back strap?


#11

I was under that same impression, hence my mentioning the Wilson EDC X9.


#12

Lol, it was meant as emergency. I had no clue where to start…


#13

Most “911” carry Glock, Springfield or S&W. Some SIG Sauer.


#14

The wilson etc looks to be a great choice.


#15

It sure does! He asked for high capacity though, so I suggested the Jericho. 15+1 isn’t exactly high capacity these days. Jericho holds 19+1 and at a far lower price point.


#16

the Jericho sounds very promising as well. As I stated in my initial post I wasn’t very knowledgeable on what was a reliable good high capacity 9mm. I’ve seen plenty of advertising for the Canik and other such pistols that I did not feel where a great quality gun. I’ve never owned anything in a 9mm


#17

IWI is a solid brand, you can trust anything made or designed in Israel.


#20

I agree, I’ve had the Tavor bullpup for about five/ six years now, it’s been flawless.


#21

that’s a really nice piece there!


#23

this is my other IWI pistol 50ae


#25

Cool! Mona Sax’s signature gun!

Any opinion on steel or polymer frame for the Jericho??
