Well folks...my dream 1911's are now a reality!
Imagine a 1911 in .357, not .355 caliber.
Now imagine this cartridge performing equally or superior to the 357 Magnum...
Now imagine it as high capacity as a regular 9mm...
There you have it!
A 1911 in 357 Ring Of Fire caliber, with 9+1 in your pistol.
I have on order a DWX-Compact but who knows when DW will start up again. Wilson Combat makes the EDC XP9 (4”, 1911 on X Frame, 15+1). It’s beautiful but also $2700 MSRP. However, I I could trade in 2 DW ECO’s and a Sig P 365 XL recently bought but don’t like and only have a few hundred to pay for the Wilson. STI, Wilson XP9 and DWX -C are probably the three best 1911 double stacks out there.

Worked through college as a motorcycle officer. Retired from multiple careers and relaxed. Mod 70 a favorite if things are unstable. Hornady ‘Critical Duty’ is my favorite regardless of caliber (I have high regard for a SIG 226 Blackwater and 21 rounds of 9mm 135 gr Critical Duty.) Will be ‘lurking’ the sideline of 1911 forum discussions, and joining in as I may have a comment. - Thump
Hi folks I'm a fan of 1911's. Started shooting one on an Army Pistol Team in 1956 and have been shooting them ever since.
I just bought a Gold Cup in .38 Super Auto. It only makes 5 but as Curley said "the day ain't over yet".
