Sharp looking AC! Been contemplating a commander size and that is the look I was thinking about. Definitely solidifies the desire for one in stainless. Congrats!

Now you need that holster and some nice grips!

That looks like a nice, reasonably priced 1911.

Can I piggyback a question here?

For someone looking at their first handgun with a budget and wants to go 1911. What do the 1911 experts think?

I don't recommend a 1911 for your first and I love 1911s I carry one concealed but there a lot harder to break down and you have to do a little fine tuning to get them working 100% In some cases now if your mechanically inclined and already know how guns and there internal parts function together then go for it if you don't I suggest a Barreta 92fs or a s&w m&p 40 much easier to clean understand and break down also Glocks are good for beginners though I'm not a fan of them

I carried a 1911 in the Corps so I am very familiar with them. Sorry I should have stated that. This would be my first purchase.

You can get a 1911 like Ria or American classic for that but will most likely have to change your internal springs to a higher quality like Wilson combat springs and better mags now a s&w m&p 40 you can get for 350 400 great guns Glocks gonna run 5 to 600 Baretta 700 to 1000 higher quality 1911s run 800 to 2000

Oh ok then 1911 for sure man check out the American classic I got one out the door 572 you may have to change some internals you may not at most that'll run an extra 50 to 100 if you go with a 1911 any cheaper than that I don't think you'll be happy with the finish and machine work

Springfield Mil- Spec makes for a great first 1911.
