COLT 1991 COMMANDER 1911 PISTOL .45 ACP
The 1991 Series pistols are reminiscent of Colt's first 1911 models. Introduced in 1991 (hence the name), the Colt 1991 1911 pistols incorporate many of the same features found on the originals.
Instead of skeletonized triggers which seem to dominate the market, the 1991 pistols have solid triggers, just like the original 1911. This 1991 Commander has a longer solid trigger for those who prefer a longer trigger pull.
The grip safety on the 1991 pistols is contoured, which is not like the original, but is more comfortable for combat shooting.
The sights on the 1991 models aren't combat sights or adjustable sights, they're partridge style sights, which are very close in design to the original style 1911 sights.
This 1991 Commander has a bobbed combat hammer rather than the original spur hammer. Other than that, the pistol bears a close resemblance to the original 1911A1. It also has a beveled magainze well for faster reloads. The beveled well can't be seen with the magazine in place, so the nostalgic look isn't compromised.
This model has a deep blued finish, with rich rosewood double-diamond checkered grips for a really outstanding appearance.

Colt 1991 Commander Reviews:
4 out of 5
Primary use: Target Shooting
"This 1991 was my first Colt and It's great. It looks different than the Kimbers and Springfields I see all the time at the range. People always want to look at it. It shoots like a dream and it's a Colt, which makes it even better."
