A local shop here has a new blue Gold Cup in stock and I took a peak at it to see how it

Posted in thread: single action 1911-like 9mm? on 02-12-2012 at 03:53 AM
I don't recall anyone making a 9mm 1911 in the commander size (4-1/4" barrel). As already

For me a 9mm is more about a carry type weapon. For a range or competition gun I prefer a 1911
