    Looking for a 9mm that has a Ruger mark III trigger feel

    Any suggestions in a larger 9mm?

    I have a Mk III and P95. The trigger feel is quite similar but as you probably know, the P95 is a pretty hefty unit. Great reliable gun but not the best for CC if that's what you're thinking of. It's a great range gun and for me, the nicest one I have to shoot. I have heard that some folks do carry them concealed , but they're pretty good sized for that, imo. There are lots of the P95's around though so you could probably find one fairly reasonably priced.

    Not looking for a CCW, the bigger the better and not afraid of going up to $1k

    What specifically is it about the Mark III trigger that you are looking for in a 9mm pistol? Do you have any particular requirements or are you open to pretty anything that fits the bill for you? Your budget should allow you a lot of wiggle room in this search.

    Almost right away, I was thinking of a 1911 in 9mm.

    Gotta vote for the full size (5") 1911, for the purpose stated. Sky's the limit on how much money you want to spend.

    CZ Tactical Sport. I think it's the best hinged trigger out there. But buy it in 40 and then get 9mm barrel to go with it. Changing from 40 to 9 is just a barrel change. No need to change the springs.

    Another full size 9mm range gun $1k or less, liked the smooth lighter trigger feel and the balance of this gun.

    I don't know that you're going to find any new/current centerfire autoloader with a trigger pull as light/crisp as a kinda-target-styled rimfire pistol, just because there is a bit more hammer/sear engagement surface needed to keep a larger caliber safe from doubling due to the effects of recoil, and that makes the trigger pull heavier on the centerfire pistol (and usually adds "creep" too).

    If not a 1911, then perhaps a lightly-used Browning High-Power 9mm (used, to help keep the price in your range)? Other options might include a CZ or used SIG 226 with a traditional DA trigger action, and just ignoring the DA firing capability during use (perfectly safe and easy enough to do on a range-only pistol).

    I like the trigger on a MkIII and I think you should look for a High Power to have that feel in a 9mm. Brownings are best, but high. I have seen some used ones in the $800 range though. You could also look at some of the clones. FEG, FM of Argentina, Arcus and Kareen are some models that won't break the bank.

    I few years ago a guy at the range had an old Browning Hi Power, and he let me shoot it a bit. It was nice. Probably the sweetest-shooting 9mm I've ever encountered. Assuming the newer ones are comparable, I don't think you'd be disappointed.

    I can get a brand new Hi Power with wood grips for $1100 here in Georgia. Depending on prices where you live, buying new may not be out of the question. The only problem is that it's an uncommon enough gun (at least in the USA) that it may be hard to find one to borrow/rent and shoot before buying.
