    Is anybody making one of these?
    If they did would you buy one?
    I haven't seen a single stack polymer frame 1911 but i'd like to. It seems with all the big manufacturers going for the cc market, a polymer frame single stack combat commander size 1911 would be a real hit. Thoughts?

    nope, not that i know of
    the polymers are all double stack.
    wouldn't buy one (single stack)

    the wilson KZ45 is close to the size of a single stack

    I doubt if the 1911 frame, with its large cutout for the slide stop, could be duplicated exactly in polymer.

    the polymer 1911 frames need metal re-inforcement in certain areas.

    there is no real advantage in a single stack polymer 1911 besides weight.
