Yes I saw those but I can't get one of those at any of my LGS ... I wanted a SA loaded champion but finally gave up on getting one of those also..

Colt is the best out there when it comes to 1911. Springfield is second.

even as much as i like my American Classic Commander, BTW, excellent pistol, great price and decently accurate, it's still not a Colt. if you can afford it, go for the Colt.

Yes price doesn't bother to much I just want a dependable commander size 1911 without going after a custom one... I keep reading & researching and keep going back to the colt xse commander it just seems to suit me
