    I was offered a trade for a long gun I have had up for sale for some time, the stainless Ruger was offered up. I have several 1911's, but no commander length at this time. Guy says it has had 2 mags run through it and has an Ed Brown holster, don't know what type. What's going rate for these and for those who own one are there any issues?

    I've always been intrigued by the commander size guns. I got my first just a few months ago, and my second about two weeks after my first.

    I've had multiple 5" and 3" 1911's before, but the commander (or champion if you're into SA) is quickly becoming my favorite.

    I don't know what that would be. Ed Brown is a gun manufacturer, not a holster maker.

    There are some holster company that advertise "FOR" Ed Brown pistols. They are not connected to Ed Brown Handguns.

    I have a Ruger LW Commander in 9mm. Wonder pistol! Accurate, well balanced, and virtually flawless with any ammo I've run through it. Couldn't be more pleased. Did put some Eagle grips on it..,.and recycled the original rubber grips to my Mk III 22/45.

    No time spent with a Ruger SR 1911 Commander but lots of time with Colt Commanders and Combat Commanders. Some of my favorite 1911s; really love the balance and handling they have with the shorter slide assembly.

    My SR 1911 'Commander' actually shoots better for me than my 5" Springfield loaded 1911 (The Parkerized one without the light rails). They are really nice for the $$

    I have the stainless and LW versions. I can't remember either of them having a malfunction of any kind. New, the stainless sells for about $700.

    My Ruger commander is a fine 1911. Carried mine for quite some time (so I was happy with its performance) until I got a VBob. It now serves as my backup commander carry piece.

    Deal didn't go through, but I will have to keep my eyes open for one at a good price.
