I doubt either the Flange or Comp will rival a Government size 9mm though.
It doesn't, it destroys it. No contest at all. My .45 carry comp is faster than my full-size 9mm since it doesn't leave the target, tested it MANY times on the clock since I didn't believe it myself.
What are your split times with a 9mm government and a .45 Carry Comp?

Are you reloading?

If not, what bullets are you using? Most commercial .45 won’t generate the gasses required for that single port compensator to do what its intended to do.
Federal 230, vs 115 blazer and 124+P vs 230+P HST, the .45 is .11-18 the 9mm is .15-.21 and the comp absolutely works. I have two otherwise identical guns and the comped one simply doesn't leave the target or beat the hell out of my wrist.

Timer doesn't lie, I can do a I'll concealed cold FAST in 4.8 average with my comped and 5.8 non comped or about 5.5 with a non comped 9. Similar results in all other drills
Impressive times. Although I digress, a 9mm Government is probably softer than a Carry Comp .45. If I wasn’t on a mission to be 100% debt free I’d buy a Carry Comp today.
It is, doesn't do anything to the hand or wrist at all. The comped .45 still has a strong push even though the sight doesn't leave the target, recoil vs felt impulse I guess....

BTW, I did a rare-thing these days, yesterday I shot my second WC-TE, the one without the comp. I shot it against my WC-CComp (both 45)...This is an interesting comparison because the CC is 4+" and the TE is 5" and has the flanged barrel. The flange offsets some of the weight added to the CC by the metal which forms the comp chamber even if the actual gasses didn't do anything :-).

I just compared them at 25 yards against the WC-scorable steel. Conclusion, on this day anyway, the CC shot softer and had a tighter 25 yard group...The CC is a really nice package, you can shoot it faster than a full size and it is just a little shorter and lighter for carry. Once you learn how to keep the comp clean you are all set...(Naturally, my 1st TE which is now comped will outshout the CC, but the former would be a good bit harder to carry).

Sounds great. Canít wait to see it. Iíve got a Baron blue CQBE...
The last two 1911s Iíve added have been railed commanders (45, 9mm).
Seems to be pretty popular..

All this talk of buying new guns and a Carry Comp sure makes it hard to not call up Jerry and order one.

Nice build OP, and drools to the carry comp. I bet that sucker stays even flatter with 185gr +P.

I ended up changing the blue to AT after all, my department won’t allow any shiny blue finish so I’ll just go AT. I might have to blue my 45 Xtac elite since it’s already something I carry, no one will look at it. Contemplating a second order, a full size similar to the cqb custom on the Wilson website, stainless slide, AT and stainless flats, silver medallions and maybe stainless magwell. Want to do a bull
Barrel on a full size 9mm, sti has a lot like that. No reason Wilson doesn’t make a reliable bull barrel full size 9 but if any of you own one and can share some knowledge or why I should go bushing instead let me know.

I have several bull barrel full size, and they are all fully dependable and a pleasure to shoot. I also fully like my full size in the bushing configuration, so my own opinion is you can't go wrong either way.

Good to hear. I’ll stick with the bull barrel then.

So I ended ordering 2 guns, a 9mm XTac elite commander in all black AT with an RMR and a full size 9mm xtac elite two tone stainless slide with black AT and a bull barrel. I decided after I get those I’ll send my full size 45 xtac elite in to get blued if it’s possibly based on the roll mark.

Wow! You're going to have a lot of fun for quite some time when those two come in. Congrats, and post a few pics when you get them.

The commander was kitted already and the full size should be kitted next week, so pics in about 4-5 months I’d guess. With the two tone I kinda followed the one CQB two tone on their custom gallery for the most part. Mine will be a bull barrel with some other modifications and left the mag release black. Does anyone know if the high mod grip safety is something new? I ordered both with the Ryan Wilson high grip mod and was told that includes the high grip mod safety but I don’t remember that being an option when I ordered my last one.
