Default Who has a wiley clapp commander

I didnt read the fine print at buds and plunked down a couple hundred on an alloy Colt commander wiley clapp.
Anyone have one? Will i be sorry i didnt get a steel gun?
I likely wont go near wearing it out. I hate loading those 7 or 8rd mags.
Thanks

I have one, my wife has one as her EDC, as is mine, they are great guns. It's as accurate as my 5 in. 1911's. You won't be sorry you bought it.

Don't have the Clapp version ,but want one. Have run Colt
Lightweight Commanders for over 25 yrs. You wont "wear it out"
and if you manage too, you damn sure got your money out of it! The
way to go for carry gun, with 8 rds. loaded will weight what a Govt.
Model weighs empty.

Don't own one, but have handled and fired one, and I love it. My current carry gun is a highly customized Springfield "Champion" in all steel. The lightweight frames I've owned over the years from both Colt and Springfield hav been very solid with no concerns compared to the steel frames.

You picked a hell of a nice pistol. Congrats!
