The pistol that would eventually be named the Colt Commander was Colt's Manufacturing Company's candidate in a U.S. government post-World War II trial to find a lighter replacement for the M1911 pistol that would be issued to officers. Requirements were issued in 1949 that the pistol had to be chambered for 9 mm Parabellum and could not exceed 7 inches in length or weigh more than 25 ounces.

Candidates included Browning Hi-Power variants by Canada's Inglis and Belgium's Fabrique Nationale, and Smith & Wesson's S&W Model 39. Colt entered a modified version of their M1911 pistol that was chambered for 9 mm Parabellum, had an aluminum alloy frame, a short 4.25-inch barrel, and a 9-round magazine. In 1951, Colt moved their candidate into regular production. It was the first aluminum-framed large frame pistol in major production and the first Colt pistol to be originally chambered in 9 mm Parabellum. The first year's production included 45 ACP and 38 Super chamberings.

In 1970, Colt introduced the all-steel "Colt Combat Commander", with an optional model in satin nickel. To differentiate between the two models, the aluminum-framed model was re-named the "Lightweight Commander"

I don't know any history on the specific firearm, but I do know she looks good .

How does she perform?

She is a little loose, but she hits her mark. I used carry her concealed, but when I found out they only made it for 2 years I put her in the safe. I still shoot her and keep her clean and lubed. Shoots really nice, she will leave this house for the range only or over my dead body.

It's an officers frame and commanders slide.

The pistol came in stainless, two tone, blued, I think parkerized, and I was fortunate enough to get one Teflon finished. It's great for carry purposes, but it's rare so she is now my first family heirloom to my first born.
