    Compact 1911s

    Since Taurus has not chosen to create a compact 1911 yet, what manufacturers make a compact 1911?

    Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.

    You know the other funny thing about duct tape? There are hundreds of uses, but it's not used for ducts. Go figure...

    I've got a Para Ord Blackwatch Companion and it's a great one for CCW except for the fact that its great looks are wasted on concealed carry. It's a single stack LDA which may or may not be a plus to some.

    Since Taurus surprised us with a .38Super and 9mm, PT1911, I bet a compact is in the future at some time.

    I would love to see a lightweight commander series. The short grips on the compacts just don't fit my hand.

    Roger that-

    I have a Sig C3 that would probably be my favorite 1911, if it were a true "Commander" size, but the "Compact" grip length just doesn't feel right.

    I"ve tried the X-Grip adapters, but they don't fit the bill, either.

    Re: Compact 1911s

    High Standard makes one called a Crusader Compact and if memory serves me well, it was a nice gun for a sub-$500 price. I should have grabbed it when I could. Hard to find now. The reviews online have all been very positive.
