    I used to own an Auto Ordinance GI(reproduction) 5" 1911A1 got rid of it this was one of the worst ideas I ever had.

    I remember reading about Para Ordinance having a P-12 .45 ACP but it looks like this product as well as the Colt Combat Commander are history as far as new production 4 1/4 " guns goes.

    Any ideas?

    Most manufacturers produce Commander size pistols. Depending on the manufacturer, they may make 4.25" or 4" model.

    I have a couple I use:
    a CZ-Dan Wesson, C-BOB in 10mm, and an Ed Brown Kobra Carry in .45.
    Sorry, no trades.

    I carry a Rem R1 with a 5" barrel about 50% of the time. It may be a little heavy but it would be good to have in a dangerous situation.

    This will be my carry 1911 after we move to the country, assuming the Sheriff issues me a CCW. At least that's what I bought it for.

    I have 500 rounds through it and so far, it's a peach.

    I've carried a Commander-length 1911 for many, many years. For the last 12 years, I've carried a Kimber ProCDP. It rotates with a Kimber SLE. Both of 'em are pre-series II guns. I feel like a high quality belt and holster are virtually requirements for successfully carrying a 1911.
