It was a hard decision between the Ruger and the Colt Combat Commander. I think in the long run the Ruger just had more features that I liked. I didn’t get much response on here about my comparison between the two but I did on another forum and that helped me make my decision. I went for the all steel version instead of the lightweight. The only thing I regret is it’s stainless and not blued like the Colt. But I’m happy with my choice. I ordered it from Palmetto State Armory since I have a local one. I can’t wait to get it.
One of my favorite shooters is a .45 CMD. I also have a Colt Lightweight Commander. The Colt is the better gun but the extra weight of the CMD make it easier on the shooter. The Colt will handle some ammo the Ruger Chokes on.
