My first 1911. After much searching and reading and handling 1911s I settled on a new Colt Combat Commander in brushed stainless. Feels great in the hand, well balanced, and a smooth trigger. I have not shot it yet, just picked it up today, but I think it will be a great shooter. The choice came down to a used Kimber CDP ll or this Colt which was new. I could have been just as happy with the Kimber because it felt great as well. Here are a couple of quick cell phone pictures, let me know how you like it.
