I would suggest the Metro also. I was looking for the Officer-size, and through research settled on the Metro Amigo (3.5"). I don't have it yet (will give a review in Jan), but the Commander-size may come home with me too. Since I already have 5" PT1911, the 4.25 didn't seem 'small enough' for carry.The American Classic, made by Metro Arms in the Philipines is easily every bit the firearm the RIA is. They just haven't imported as many to the USA until recently. They are imported by Eagle Imports, the same company that imports Bersa and Firestorm and they carry the same lifetime warranty, have many repair service stations over the USA and all Gander Mountain Gunsmiths are also certified warranty centers. Parts are very easy to order online should you need them. I have had the full size 1911 deluxe for 4 years and have been completely satisfied. You can get the basic GI model, the Deluxe (I recommend) and the deluxe in hard chrome.
Commander Model this is the link
Sig Sauer has got some really nice 1911-22 on the market here in different finishs and grip styles.No big hurry for me actually really I don't need it at all. I have bought 3 pistols and an AR in the last two months so I should slow down. LOL Sometimes it's so hard to say no. I think my next purchase will be a .22 1911 or conversion so I can shoot more. $16.00 for 525 rounds vs. the same for 50 rounds of .45 is expensive. At least with the .22 I can get more practice in.
