Series 70 Colt Commander (9mm)

1973 5
Just picked up a Series 70 Colt Commander in 9mm. Produced in either '73 or '74. Extractor is completely exposed on the underside of the slide with the exception of about a 1/4" at the breechface and at the slide's rear.
Have never seen this in full size Series 70 pistols in 45acp. Anyone out there familiar with this and are there any advantages or disadvantages inherent in it?
Thanks

It probably came out of the factory that way. A 9mm slide weighs more than a 45 and does not have the recoil that a 38 super or 45 has. The breech face is smaller and the rest is about the same. Colt 9mm were very underwhelming and not worth much for any reason. It's a poor choice for a 1911. Hang it on the wall

Thanks for the quick responses.
I bought this pistol new from Novak's and had them do a great deal of work on it. It's a present for my girlfriend and will become her carry gun. I ordered an exact copy in 45acp for myself.
