Commanders vs. a Commodore: Who Outranks Whom in 45 ACP?

In naval parlance, a commodore holds more sway than a commander. But in this match up, Commanders from Colt and Para USA outduel the S.A.M. Commodore by a handy margin.

There are those who feel that the 1911 handgun is the finest defense pistol available. But this isn’t the only reason for the 1911’s popularity. The 1911 also caters to those with a sense of history and emotional attachment. This is why the World War I and World War II reproductions and GI guns are so popular. But when it comes to a deadly serious defense gun, only the facts and performance matter. The Commander-size pistol is wisely shorter and lighter than the long and heavy Government Model.

Although the Para USA was the lightest of the three Commanders, recoil was not a significant factor when firing the pistol. Our shooters found the Para to be fast handling, accurate, and reliable.
