    What is special is that its a Colt! Ghost ring sight, coupled with fiber optics up front.....slick black grips (two pair), not to mention the lightweight commander is the perfect CCW hardware.

    Okay, screw the series 80, had a series 70 trigger system installed. Ambi-safety sucked, felt like it was two stages and gritty. Also a cast piece, so I had a Wilson Combat forged right handed safety installed. Outstanding performance, equal to my Dan Wesson C-Bob.

    Defenders are gonna jam! Spring system of the 1911 was never meant to be utilized in this fashion. Recoil of a defender? Average, hardly extreme.

    Why do y'all keep bringing up the Defender???
    The Ghost is a custom XSE Lightweight Commander.
    BIG difference in reliability and felt recoil.
    The Lightweight Commander has been a proven performer for over 60 years now.
    And there are still those of us out here who absolutely love and even prefer that grip safety. Although I will confess that I liked the previous Colt wide grip safety better. But I have never seen one in stainless for sale. Well that would fit a Series 90 that is.
