With all of the new and modern 1911 models, I was just wondering what you guys thought of the Colt Combat Commander, series 80 pistol. Does it still hold weight in the 1911 world of self defense and military combat, or has it been left too far behind?
You can add the fancy doo dads to your commander for a LOT less than buying a new 1911. Just specify comander size when ordering parts cuz some things are a little different than the full size 1911.And if you dont know what you're doing really, find a decent gunsmith so ya dont get yourself (or others) hurt.
Sell it go get you a plastic gun if you like black that much.
Colt Commanders Rock!
Favorite carry piece.
Here is a pic of my BELOVED 70 Series Combat Commander in .38 Super.
I have gone into harm's way carrying this piece when I was still a cop, then again as a federal officer working in Panama.
NEVER feel left behind or outgunned packing a Commander.

Install S-A high rise grip safety, Esmeralda thin rosewood grips.
Very nice looking Commander Gene. I have his big brother in 5".
She charge me 90.00 for grips last year, might be cheaper know little high but she turns out great grips.
Don't know anything on prices on redoing the finish this is the same finish that came on mine, bought new last year.
Yes i have look at some while surfing the 1911 grips don't remember what sight.
I often carry this one.
