TRS Commander or Thunder Ranch 1911 9mm

I have yet to see either Nighthawk pistol mentioned above in person, but I am curious about the two.

I'm wanting to get a 9mm 1911 and have narrowed down to these two.

I like the style and capacity of the TRS but I have always carried a full size and the Thunder Ranch 1911 in 9mm is a looker as well.


Your choice and why?

I have the TRS Commander and love it. For a host of reasons I’ve only been able to run a hundred rounds of assorted FMJ and JHP defense loads. I shot right out of the bag with no cleaning or lube. It was 100% reliable (as one would expect) and dead nuts accurate. I have many full size 1911’s but prefer Commander size for carry. It is a double stack so grip is fatter than normal. I wear XL gloves and have no problem with the grip. Because it’s relatively new no one seems to have a holster for it. But, found it actually rides well in my Wilson Beretta 92 Brigadier holster.
Can’t go wrong with either one. It really comes down to purpose and personal preference.
