Default compact1911

I want a compact 1911. I was looking at the springfield 1911 in the 4" . I want something to use to carry. I like it because I like springfield firearms. Where I work we sell a lot of them. We sell more of them then we do of the glocks. We all like the feel of them and the way they shoot.

try out the SA Loaded Micro Compact 45. it's the one i just bought for a compact carry pistol. i like the 1911 platform and wanted something smaller than the full size Government model. i was somewhat concerned about recoil in a much smaller pistol, but after shooting it, no problems. even the wife enjoys shooting it. i have had many 1911's over the years, but this is the first compact 1911 i have ever owned. it probably won't be the last.

Another good option is the colt defender and colt new agent. Ive got a new agent and its an ideal extremely discrete way to carry a super small 1911 that still holds 7+1 and can use any full size magazine

That is the one I was wanting but I can't find one. I was wanting to order one but I can't get it at the price I was wanting it for. Does springfield still have it on the new order for 2012.

When I first started looking at 1911s I thought stainless was the way to go but the more I looked the more this one grew on me
