As far as Commanders go, I've had Both, the Commander in Alloy and the Combat Comnmander in steel! I got the Combat Commander, as I thought the alloy Model would not hold up! Bad mistake, I bought it new from a fellow who claimed to have fired near 3K rounds through it, I shot an Honest 10K and then sold it off to a fellow who still uses it! If your looking at weight, how it feels to carry or fire, take that into account, the steel frame gun was good, but not worth getting as the alloy commander stood up quite well to all the punishment!
Not sure if your concerns were about it holding up, Or how it felt when firing it or?
