I'm the OP.
Came across a Colt Wiley Clapp Commander 45. Couldn't resist, pulled the trigger!
I went back and forth in my mind between the Dan Wesson and Colts, but wanted to handle the different guns in person. I'm a little shy about making $1,500 purchases without seeing the product with my own eyes.
Visited several LGS to see if I could find either the Dan Wesson or Colt SXE. No luck with any of those, but I saw the Colt Commander and it just called my name. Haven't been to the range yet, but I like the looks and feel of the Colt.
The best thing is, I can still snatch up a Dan Wesson sometime in the future, if one presents itself. I've also got my eye on the new Ruger SR1911 Stainless Commander, which just appeared on their website. Interesting!
