    I have an older colt Lightweight commander that I love- The frame size is very conducive for regular carry and shooting.

    I have a relative who just got his first 1911, a stainless Champion. It's a pretty gun and he shoots it well, but to me the trigger is very heavy and the pistol is also pretty heavy. I prefer my XSE Lightweight Commander or Colt CCO.

    Not to be a negative nancy but that Colt looks a little more like a 5" government model than a commander...or do my eyes deceive me...?

    Nice looking 1911 though!

    Nope, it's a Commander. Here it is before I sent it off to Jason Burton at Heirloom Precision for a little touch up.

    And here's a link to a little thread about it that Jason started over at Custom Knives and Guns: http://www.customknivesandguns.com/ckgforums/showthread.php?t=18762.

    And here's a little article I wrote about the gun: http://ezine.m1911.org/showthread.php?t=4
