*newbie* 9mm w/ 22lr conversion 1911 style?

So i just recently purchased my first handgun / firearm, a xd .45 service, and the shooting bug has bit me!


Ill be honest, my first gun that really appealed to me was a browning Hi Power .40, but the more I look , the more a traditional 1911 style pistol sounds good.

The only problem, I shell out a lot of money already for .45 ammo, I would really prefer to shoot a 9mm, also so my girl will shoot with me, but possibly a 9mm with a .22lr conversion kit. Any ideas? Not trying to spend a lot, since my primary is the XD, but would still like to pickup something decent.


thanks a lot in advance

i know that the Marvel/Wilson/STI conversion's will work with 9mm and ramped barrels.
the Kimber & Ciener conversions will not work on a 9mm 1911.

I have a Marvel on one of my 1911 frames and I shoot it more than anything else now. I needs high velocity ammo but otherwise is a great system and very accurate. I had a few jams in the beginning but those seem to have gone away at about 400 rounds. It isn't cheap; almost as much as a new pistol.

Save your .45 brass pick up what you can, find someone to teach you how to cast bullets. Invest in a lee turret press and dies. = .45 ammo for 6-7 cents a round It isnt as hard as you think and with ammo costs going through the roof and people buying shelves clean it could be your only safe bet.

If casting lead is anythign like casting aluminium I shouldnt have much of an issue. Ive knoticed at the range I shoot at, they give you dirty looks if you sweep up brass. Could always invest in a catch net though.

the best deal on a 9mm 1911 is the STI Spartan, which is about $650.
