Colt Commander 1st Trip

Took my commander to the range today I bought from a friend. He knew I wanted one and had problems with the classic I had bought.
This has to be the smoothest best shooting gun I have held. I had so much steel ringing it sounded like jingle bells. Very pleased with its accuracy and handling.

Commanders are my favorite pistol. I have a new lightweight in 45acp that I need to try out. You mentioned it was smooth, do you credit anything to the double recoil spring set up ?
Let us. Know if you shoot some groups!
Meet me, Jesus, meet me in the middle of the air, if my wings should fail me, Lord, please meet me with another pair, so I can die easy. *WWG1WGA*

A couple years back I bought a new Colt Combat Commander....blued.

Sweet gun. It was my first commander. I found that I very much preferred it's dimensions & heft over the 3" aluminum-framed officer sized I also have. Both are .45. That commander carried very easily but I was much more accurate with it.

It had the rat-tailed grip safety which I didn't care for. I also wasn't too enthused about the sights. The thumb safety was something that I wanted to change.

I wish I'd waited a year as Colt offered a new version like yours that addressed these.

Anyway.....grateful for that first one because it has led me to buying more.

I'm sitting here having morning coffee and chilling with the dogs and on the chair side table is a commander that I had field stripped last night and lubed. It's waiting on me to take it to the range this week.

Great carry size and very shootable. I don't see much of a drop-off in accuracy with them. I have large hands and the full grip is nice.

I think you will enjoy yours and I wished I waited for that version to emerge....likely I'd have kept it and still be running it today. Great gun you have and it's set up nicely.
Proud to be a Deplorable.....
