cheaper end (obviously not cheap quality though)... ($400-$1100)
also, I would prefer the 4.25 inch commander length

Here's one that isn't too pricey. Kinda flashy, though. A pimp would probably like it.:)

That's not a 1911. Not even close.

If you want a commander size, you're gonna have to go to the high end of your price spectrum.

I'd recommend the STI Guardian. It'll be $1000 if you know where to look (I do and can recommend talking to Bobby at Freedom Gun Works).

Now if you're not opposed to a 5" you can spend about $600 and get a damn good value with an STI Spartan.

sti? ive heard of them. have never seen one in person.
They are nice, I'm considering one in 9mm myself. The styling is what most that dislike don't care for but I don't mind it - everyone that shoots them seem to like them well enough.

Regarding the 9mm 1911....

There is an existing thread, “9mm 1911's”, at: http://www.msgunowners.com/t4188-9mm-1911-s
You can spin through all 7 pages and get caught up on 9mm 1911’s.

Regarding the 9mm SRTI Guardian: I have one. You will find it referenced throughout the above 7 pages.

For more info on the STI Guardian see: http://www.stiguns.com/guns/Guardian/Guardian.php

As far as 9mm 1911’s in general are concerned, below are comparisons I put together perhaps a year ago when I was searching out my 9mm 1911. NOTE: To the best of my knowledge the RIA 1911A1 MS is the Commander-sized 1911 9mm and is not being imported (drat!!).

If these charts turnout unreadable let me know. Send me your email and I’ll send them as attachments (Excel spreadsheets)

I hope you find this helpful. If you’ve got questions specific to the STI guardian drop me a line.
