Default Commander 1911 with Bobtail

Who makes a 1911 Commander with a Bobtail? I want one for CC but would prefer it came that way from the factory. I know Kimber makes one. Who else?

S&W E Series has one, and I think the Sig Fastback is commander length.

Dan Wesson used to make a Classic model in a bobtail and now they offer a Valor model.


Aside from that, you can also buy a bobtail MSH and have a gunsmith bob the frame on any full size 1911 frame. It's a relatively straightforward job.

Dan Wesson also makes the Guardian model.
A factory bobtailed, commander sized 1911 that comes in either .45 (all steel) or 9mm (LW aluminum frame).
