I think those are about the two best options on the planet for the price. Also the CZ TSO if you can find one. About 2k but you won’t find a better 9M for 3X the price.Dan Wesson not very cheap but real high quality and very reliable as 9-MM 1911 platform.
I recently got the Shadow-2 and I'm very happy with my purchase.
A commander sized 1911 points much like a G19/similar sized striker gun. Actually, the nicest pointing 1911 I own is this Dan Wesson Specialist commander in 9mm. Yeah, it has a rail which adds some weight but it is a peach to shoot.I like the look of the 1911’s and figure the 9mm would be economical to shoot and should be accurate and fun to shoot.
Springfield stopped accepting custom orders a couple of years ago. They build their own models these days and Dan Wessons are not in the same league.well, I have heard that if one has the money, Springfield will craft in their shop a 1911 on US frame that is good. Expect that for the same $ one could buy a ready-to-go Dan Wesson.
I have several 1911's in 9mm including the current production Colt Lightweight Commander. Of all my 1911's this one balances in my hand the best. Its got vertical serrations on the front strap similar to a Beretta 92 and an undercut trigger guard which both aid in maintaining grip, an extended thump safety, and Novak sights. It uses the Series 80 firing pin safety but I've never been able to feel a difference between it and the Series 70. So far I haven't made any changes to it except for the grips.I was looking at a Colt Commander with a 4.25” barrel. Are there better or comparable options with out getting more of expensive?
I have a Smith&Wessin performance center pro series 1911 in 9mm. Great gun. Better build quality than colt and very accurate with 3.5 pound trigger. A bit expensive I think I paid $1250.00 for it New. But I have no regrets.I have an itch for a 9mm 1911. Ive never had a 1911 so I don’t have much experience with them.
