In case you didn't get the idea yet, 5" rules.
I will pile on and say 5", but will add my favorite is a 4" Kimber Pro Carry with a bull barrel.
depends on its use for CC I go 4" for home/range no CC 5" the 5" digs into me when i sit(i only carry IWB) the 4" is just that much shorter that it doesnt.
Just in case you missed it, buy the 5"!!!!!
You're going to end up liking it so much, you'll end up wanting to carry it. Go 4.25", Commander size. I've had both sizes and settled on the versatility of the Commander size.
Another vote for the full size.
Without any doubt or peradventure...five inch steel.
The only size a 1911 is made in.....full size.
Full sized is far and away preferable in terms of balance, reliability, and durability. The Commander sized and 4" guns can work well, but the inherent reliability still won't quite be there like in the full size. Personally, I'd either go with a 5" 1911 or choose a different type of gun. All this assumes that the gun is potentially for defensive use. If it's a range piece, then get whatever floats your boat.
I go with 5" 1911 for your first, good luck.
I have both, but much prefer my Commander, and lightweight Commander at that.
