    I recently got a .45 Springfield 1911A1. The trigger is pure sex. I love shooting this thing.

    But shooting .45 regularly gets pricey. I'm thinking about getting the same gun in 9mm, but I haven't found one locally. Plus if I was nitpicking, the 1911 is kind of a pain to clean (not too bad, but a little more effort than most modern guns).

    How's the trigger on the CZ 75 SA? Is it as good as a 1911? Appreciate any feedback you might have. Thanks! :wavey:

    I love my Springer 9mm 1911. I won my class at the last State IDPA championship with it. I've never had any issues with it, and I'd rather practice with the 9mm 1911 than a .22 1911.

    I loved my CZ75b, and it was the only other platform that's trigger system was "close" to as nice as my 1911, but it doesn't beat it. I'll take a 1911 any day.

    No way. 9mm 1911s are a joy to shoot and I highly recommend them.

    The stock CZ75sa trigger is nothing special. After you swap it out with the competition hammer and some other minor parts it's really good.

    This is the exact gun I'm looking at: 9mm Springer Loaded Target. But nobody in my area has it (and they say the Springfield only makes them every other year or so).

    I'm split between trying to mail order it or go with the CZ 75 SA which is available locally.

    mag capacity of a 9mm 1911 is lacking. that is unless your drop the $2500 on a STI or something.

    How much would the mentioned upgrades run? How much do you think a gunsmith would charge for all of the upgrades?

    Thanks!

    I would guess about $150 including parts. You can always do it yourself if your the handy type. I think the biggest thing is fitting the hammer lugs. Phrozen would know as the resident CZ whore.

    Unless your deadset on a SA, take a gander at the CZ Shadow at CZCustom.com

    I could build a fucking sick CZ for what a stock 9mm 1911 costs. Actually, ill put one of my sao CZ triggers against any stock 1911 trigger.

    Just saying, as I love the 1911 too. If you aren't gonna trick out the CZ though, then its nothing special.

    You could build one from an SP01 if you were really inclined.
