Does anyone make a single stack 9mm 1911 high capacity magazine?

    No, but you could do like Dillenger and weld three of them together (he used .38 Super).

    I cannot resist: why did you make that list of requirements? To my eye, they cancel each other out!

    Cordially, Jack

    Why? To get as close to the one man: one gun idea.

    9mm Kahrs for defense
    9mm single stack 1911s for fun.

    I've tried my hand at most other modern handgun platforms and those are the two that I've chosen to stick with. I don't want to get a double stack 1911 to accommodate more rounds because the grip would be different than the single stack. I don't care if the magazine won't sit flush with the bottom of the grip if it'll give me greater capacity.

    I like the 9mm 1911 as well. I bought the Baer PII. Wilson and Tripp make 10 rounders right now. My guess is that someone in the future will make a higher cap to stick out the bottom of the mag well like my 10 round Wilson .45s do now. BHP feels pretty good to me for a high cap double stack.

    I think you need to reevaluate the current offerings in hi-cap 1911's.

    By that I mean actually hold them in your hand and shoot them. I think you will find that the grip circumference is quite comfortable, and not much thicker than a single stack 1911, if at all.

    I personally think the Kimber polymer 10 is a great 1911 hi-cap.

    YMMV.

    Handle a sti double stack. Its about the same as a single stack. I'll measure the grips when i get home later.

    Make them?

    They have enough trouble making standard capacity 9mm 1911 mags that actually work, most of the time.

    The case taper of a 9mm round makes a hi-cap single stack probematic at best.

    I've seen 10 and 20 round mags for standard 1911's at the gun shows before for all that's worth.

    Hi-cap 1911s have come a long way. I've got an STI Edge in 9mm that is very comfortable in my average size hands. The standard 126mm mag holds 17+1 rounds. With the full size 1911 steel frame wth full dust cover absorbs so much of the recoil that it feels more like shooting a .22 than a 9mm.

    all these answers and no one mentions PARA ORDINANCE

    I love my para carry 9 single stack. Dependable as hell & qualified for ccl with 237/250. Not bad for a beginner, huh?

    off-line mostly.
    The thread starter wants a HIGH CAPACITY single stack 9mm.

    The Para Carry 9 only offers 8 rounds in the magazine....not really "high capacity" in my opinion.

    Single stack 1911 in 9mm, Rock Island Armory. Never seen a single stack AND high capacity 1911, I don't think they exist.
