    Guys,

    After much thought, I've decided to put this up for sale. I've been shooting the heck out of my Hellcat 9mm, and this has just been sitting. I believe I am going to whittle down the list of my 1911s in .45 and go more with the 9mm. I never thought I would sell this one.

    These pistols are made to Gunsite's specifications in Colt's Custom Shop. Purchased in February, it has ~430 rounds through it, if my spreadsheet is correct.

    And trust me, it can shoot better in someone else's hands

    It did not like the Colt mags that came with it, but it loves the Wilson mags. I can include the Colt mags for the sake of completeness, but I would recommend the Wilson.

    $1150.00 shipped from my FFL to yours.

    Oh no! Sorry to hear you are selling. I got one after reading your review and, although I primarily have 9mms, my Gunsite LW Cmdr .45 is one of my favorites. GLWS and someone will be a lucky new owner.

    Gunsite needs to ask Colt to build some in 9MM.

    I always thought this gun should've been made in .38 Super.

    I emailed them two weeks ago to inquire about a 9mm Gunsite LW Commander. I would buy one over a Wiley Clapp any day.

    Here was the email response I got from the Pro Shop Manager:

    "We are currently not having Colt make a 9mm 1911. WE have found they seem to have trouble with the quality of the 9mm mags."

    Seems like a VERY silly reason given all the other excellent 9mm mags out there. In fact the Colt Custom Shop has been known to include Wilson Mags with certain guns.

    Funny, Colt seemed to have problems with the .45 mags that came with mine. Wilson Combat solved that for me!

    At least you got an answer from Gunsite, nonsense nonetheless. When I emailed that question about 6 months ago, I got no response.
