This is my choice in a 4" 1911 I sold my 3"&4" Kimbers and kept this Para CCO LDA .45.

I carried a Colt New Agent and a Kimber Ultra. Both were great carry pistols. I've since gone to the Kahr PM45, which is similar in size. I also carried my Kimber Pro occasionally. Some things I learned:

1) The grip length is very similar between the 3" and 4". If you are willing to add just a hair to the size and weight, the 4" Commander/Champion/Pro is a quality pistol to carry.

2) If I had the money I would absolutely go with a bob-tailed commander. That pointy grip tip is tough to carry for me.

Read the user manual and make sure other buyers do the same.
The shorter barrel of the compacts require that the recoil spring be changed at less round count than the standard size. (another item your store could stock)

The Springers are great pistols. That pic of the Para really makes me want one of the LDA's. I carry a Para LTC (commander length) and have for a good while now. One of the best pistols I've had period..Let alone 1911's. I have a couple Springers though and really like them too.

This is what I carry 90% of the time. 1000 rds and no hiccups at all. Not that expensive as carry guns take a beating and if you ever have to use it they will take it away for awhile. Not a problem but I don't want a more expensive gun getting handled and abused (possibly) by some clown at the police dept.
