I like fixed on Commander size and smaller and adjustable on my 5 inch all steel 1911s which are range toys. Of course I shoot out to 100 yards with all sorts of factory ammo and hand loads.

A 9mm is much milder to shoot. As close as I can come to apples to apples is with my new GCNM MkIV Series 70 pistols with my 2015 in 45ACP on top and my 2017 in 9mm on the bottom.
