I’m sure some of you may find this hard to believe, but I know very little about 9mm 1911’s. I don’t recall ever working on one, or even shooting one.

Does the 9mm use the same magazine as the .38 Super?

No... the magazines are probably the same but the 9mm has a spacer in the back because of the shorter 9mm cartridge.

It's been a couple of hours since I shot one but the last time I checked they were fine

The problem with 1911's in 9mm is finding one! They are cataloged, but according to my massive gun shop in Jax, sell out on arrival, very small quantities. both McCormick and Wilson have competition magazines 9 round available, but not always easy to find.

Several years back I fired a 9mm 1911. No idea which brand. Very light recoil and pleasant to shoot. If I purchase another 1911, it will probably be a .40 or 9mm.
