had a question maybey one of you knows,at tax time I got the green light to get a 1911 to replace the one I sold for moving money. I want a commander but my budget is only about 500-550 and i cannot find a commander in that price range as SA is sold out all the time as well as the RIA's an some of the lower priced 1911's. so My question is this. If i buy a charles daly or RIA 3.5" 1911 would I be able to buy a commander slide and barrel and guide rod and put it on the sub compact sized frame? or will I have to buy a gov sized 1911 and put the commander slide and barrel on it? any help would be greatly appreaciated as well as any good buying sights for guns,i have some but most of my bookmarks were on the laptop which is about useless right now.

thanks in advance
Charlie

Neither will work without modification to the frame. Just look for a used commander or get a Fusion kit. They are all over gunbroker.
