Is there any difference in size between 1991 Compact and 1911 Officers? The reason I ask is because there are no molded holsters for 1991 Compact, and was wondering if the 1911 Officers would work. Any ideas?
And by the way, I was just looking in my owners manual for my 91A1 Compact (yes, I hang on to everything) and it says the barrel length for the 1911 Officer's ACP and the 1991A1 Compact both have a 3 5/8" barrel. The Defender is the only one with a 3" barrel.
Don't know if anyone's mentioned it to you but the Fobus (paddle) made for the Colts seems to work fine without a whole lot of room left over. I've used it for my compact and commander. You might want to check it out. Cheap, too.
I own them both and they're the same in every aspect except for the raised rib,beaver tail grip safety and slanted cocking serrations on the Enhanced Officers model. I use a belt slide and or a Yauqui(spl) both from Galco for all of My 1911's without any problems.Hope this helps.tom.

I carry my 1991a1 compact in an Alessi Talon IWB made for on officers model...it fits perfect...the end of the heavy kings bushings is just shy of the end of the holster...I also carry it in a Mad Dog outside thunderbolt holster.
Oh my God! Same barrel as an officers model you say?
My oh my how true it is that memory fades.
In fact I've heard that memory is the first thing to go as you get older.Can't remember what the second thing was.
I just had Rafter S build me a holster out of sharkskin for my officers model.I could not be happier with the quality of their work.The price for a belt,holster and double mag pouch in sharkskin was less than half of a comparable Sparks rig.
Is it as good as a Sparks rig? I'm satisfied that it is. Check them out.....
