Taurus recently announced the release of its newest pistol, a 9mm 1911 Commander. The new 1911 Commander brings the same key specifications and dimensions as the original .45 ACP, but with nine rounds of 9mm.
Since its introduction, the 1911 Commander has served as a reliable defensive handgun for shooters who favor the robust 1911-style construction, features, and full grip but prefer a shorter profile for daily or concealed carry. The all-steel slide and frame in matte black finish combined with the aggressively checkered grip delivers a substantive feel in the hand and the kind of durability that has made this handgun popular for those who demand dependability and reliability in their home defense or personal carry firearm.
The Single Action Only 1911 Commander provides the familiar hammer-fire design in conjunction with a grip safety, manual safety, and firing pin block. With a barrel length of 4.2 inches, an overall length of eight inches, and an extended beaver tail, the 1911 Commander 9mm Luger is both comfortable to shoot and to carry. Drift-adjustable Novak front and rear sights ensure an optimal sight picture and fine-tune zero for any shooting style.
The new 1911 Commander 9mm Luger is now shipping to authorized dealers and distributors nationwide. For more information, visit taurususa.com.
