I find my steel framed commander bobtail to be a little heavy for edc unless im wearing jeans, and even then, I prefer my much lighter defender. the defender sacrifices one round for being so much lighter that I forget its there, even with shorts. an lightweight commander might be a good compromise. I am seriously considering changing my cbob for an alloy guardian for this reason.

I chose the now discontinued, Springfield LW Loaded Operator Gov't sized 45acp. Lightened it up even more with Hogue G10 grip/magwell kit, and Colt Comp Series '70 dual spring/GI rod. Fantastic shooting, lightweight gun for travel, carry, mobility. I stoke it with 200gr SWC to keep weight down even more.

I prefer alloy frames for carry
Right now my edc is Dan Wesson ECO in 9mm Even though it’s a very compact 1911 it’s one of the most accurate pistols I have. A stiff belt and a Kramer holster it carries vey well
