I want to purchace a new slide for my 1911a1 standard frame (5"). The question is, I want a shorter slide for my standard frame for inside the pants carry. What is then the shortest slide I can use in my existing frame?
The one that's on it. Commander frames are different inside and out.Putting a short slide on a government model almost never works. It may, but you will never be able to trust it.Pistolwrench can modify that frame for you . It might take a year but he can do it.
