Mid size Rock .45

Am torn between the GI and Rock Standard, both with 4.25" barrels. The only thing I don't like about the Rock is the ambi safety.

Can any who own either one attest to the reliability of these commander size pistols...Thanks

I have the 40/10mm MS. Personally its ok for a range gun.
I don't like the full sized grip. Not conducive to CCW.
Ill take my 2 CS models in 9mm or 45acp any day over the MS.
If your getting it as a range gun size here doesn't matter. In my 2 cents worth.
As a carry gun the CS walks all over the MS.
Here in Florida I don't have the luxury of a covering garment, Other then a t-shirt.
So no belt carry. IWB only.

My GI Midsize gives me hammer bite. Get the Rock Standard with the beavertail grip safety. Never had any reliability issues with the GI. CS models are known to have reliability issues like any other "Compact" or "Micro" 1911. If reliability is your goal, stay away from the CS and stay with your plan on a MS.

I have had ABSOLUTELY no issue with ANY of my CS pistols, reliability-wise.(between my wife and myself, we own 5) As long as the recoil spring has been kept fresh (every 300-500 rounds, or so), they have been UTTERLY reliable. I have ZERO experience with the MS...just wanted to state that the CS pistol CAN be a VERY reliable handgun!!
