Who makes a 9mm on a 1911 frame? I have very weak hands and need something with very low recoil. Ive been shooting a G17 but I need something a little heavier.

Springfield, Kimber, Colt, Les Bear, STI, Wilson, etc. Just about all the major 1911 makers have one or more 9mm incarnations.

If your looking for a heavier 9mm, I would suggest a Sig 226 or 229. If you can find one, I would suggest a Sig 228.

The lil ole Star BM's were an all steel 9mm that resemble a shrunken version of the 1911. Nice lil ole guns at a really affordable price if you can locate one.

Heavier? I'd look at the Browning Hi-Power too ;) As for 9mm, I've shot samples from Springfield and they do seem quite nice.

...

Without doubt, Springfield Armory's SAO EMP 3" 1911 9mm that holds a single-stack mag of 9+1 rounds.

Heavier than you will think when you first look at it but, when you put one in your hands, you'll know, along with the excellent point to aim balance that goes with its empty weight of 24oz.. (full weight with mag loaded, unknown to me).

They're up there in price, but well worth it in terms of reliability, dependability, accuracy, as they are tack drivers from up close, out to 63ft as far as I can attest too, with 650 rounds out her to-date without any failures..

The only draw back IMO, is disassembly and reassembly of them requires semi-strength and patience SO..

I can agree with Tecumseh, that IF you can find a Sig P228, that would be the other best choice, as they are very simple to disassemble, inspect, clean, and reassemble, along with thin grips (IIRC 9 or 10 round single-stack mags) great shooting platform, balanced, and IMHO, the finest shooting 9mm Sig ever produced, having had the pleasure of shooting one..

This is an EMP 9mm

and you can get P225's (8 rounder) used from several sources for a very reasonable price - such as $359 from SOG for example (not the only place with these) they also have new production FEG Hi Powers (13 rounders) for $349.

Both would fit the bill of being a bit heavier vs the recoil.

+1 for the EMP.
That is one nice-shooting little 1911.

if you want a 5" 1911 in 9mm, I suggest a Kimber Aegis, I have one, have ran across about 8 other people who have the same model and every one of us love them, all 9 have been 100%.

before buying my Aegis I looked at the SA Loaded in 9mm and the Kimber Classic in 9mm.

Beware of the sticker shock! You get what you pay for though :)

Weight may not be the entire answer.

A Sig 226 ST weighs about 10% more than a 9mm Government Model 1911 and a S&W MP9 weighs about 20% less. I can't tell much practical difference in felt recoil between the three guns.

The CZ-SP01 , and Baby Eagles are both pretty darn heavy guns for 9mm.. esp. the SP-01.

Probally the handgun that gets the MOST rangetime from me now is a 9mm 1911[ I picked up a deal on a used STI Trojan]. Handles just like my 45 and 10mm 1911's, less recoil and less cost......
