Turnbull Model 1911 Commander – Sold
It can be said that Colt’s original 1911 Commander was ahead of its time. Introduced to the U.S. Government as a lighter alternative for officers, Colt’s aluminum-framed 9mm-chambered offering with 4.25” barrel didn’t hit the mark. Undeterred, the maker went ahead with civilian production of “The Commander” in 1950, with the all-steel “Combat Commander” arriving in 1970. Enthusiasm for The Commander increased over time, and it is now among the most popular 1911 variants.
We’ve released to the showroom another example of our interpretation of the Combat Commander. This charcoal blued Commander features the same fit, finish and accuracy for which all Turnbull Model 1911s are known.
