Commander Classic



This bobbed 1911 was brought back into production by popular demand. With an 8 round magazine capacity and a 4.25 length barrel, the Commander Classic is such a tried and true essential to our lineup, it has withstood the test of time, maintaining its California legal status. 

With stunning brushed flats and bead-blasted rounds, a stainless steel slide and frame and wood grips, this handgun is as aesthetically pleasing as it is capable. Chambered in .45 ACP and bearing snag-free Tritium sights and a smooth, bobbed mainspring housing, this is also a great concealed carry handgun.
