Commander Classic

  • dan-wesson-commander-classic-bobtail-45-left



Produced only in small numbers in recent years, a resurgence in demand means we brought the bobbed Commander back into regular production. One of the few California-legal models in our 1911 line, it has a loyal and growing following in the Golden State. With stainless steel slide and frame, its flats are brushed and rounds are bead blasted. With snag-free Tritium sights and a bobbed mainspring housing, it is an excellent candidate for concealed carry.

  • Bobbed Mainspring Housing, The bobbed mainspring housing may be non-traditional, but many prefer its feel in the hand as well as the reduced frame size that results in less printing while carrying concealed.

  • Fixed Night Sight, A Novak-style snag-free sight with tritium self-illuminated vials.

  • Frontstrap 25 LPI Checkering, Sharp, 25 LPI checkering, giving plenty of grip without being too aggressive.

  • Long K-Style Trigger, The long K-style trigger is a twist on the standard three hole trigger that looks like a ‘K’.

  • Night Sight, Novak-style and snag-free, these three-dot night sights have tritium vials that are always illuminated.

  • Smooth Mainspring Housing, The absence of checkering allows for a snag-free carry experience.

  • Tactical Hammer, The skeletonized hammer helps to reduce weight and maintains the clean look of the pistol.

  • Traditional Cut, The traditional cut keeps the lines of the traditional 1911 slide with a dustcover swoop.
