Simply put I have not seen a Commander sized model within my price range that I like, nor am I overly concerned with the issue of weight. If the eighty-one year old retired Sheriff next door to my father can carry a full sized Korean War vintage 1911A1 concealed (he carried it the length of his career on and off duty) then I think I can manage just fine.

If there were commander length options with good sights in my price range I'd happily consider them.
