Christensen Arms Custom 1911 Commanders
Quote:Christensen Arms Custom 1911 Commanders

As I get deeper into the mythical world of the 1911, I find I really don’t know as much as I thought about guns or obsessions. The worshipers of the 1911, people I used to consider somewhat cultish, are actually much more than that. They’ve taken the craft of pistol making and honed it into high art. Oddly, in doing so, they’ve also managed to make the guns less precious, more functional, and completely modern.

Take a Christensen 1911. That’s what we’re reviewing today, and this 1911 Commander is a fine example of what I’m talking about. Their guns are exquisitely beautiful. Fans of pattern welded steel flock to Christensen’s Damascus 1911. It is a showy gun. But it is no more complex than some of the Christensens that look much less ostentatious. Yet the guns are anything but simple. This review gun is a titanium framed Commander model. EDA These things are EXPENSIVE! das

I'm sure they make a fine firearm. The most expensive I can afford on my budget is a Colt or a Kimber. Them and Les Baer is just out of my price range.

Every time I see that Christensen in the Grice flyer I wince at the price and contemplate selling off something just to not miss out on this one.

I also would have liked to have gotten one of the case hardened Olympic Westerners before they went away.
