Both the Colt Commander and Officers model frame rails are about .086" shorter than those of the standard Government frame, which is why a Commander sized slide is able to work on the smaller Officers frame, and vise versa, but the Commander and Officers sized slides will not work on the Government frame.
The Government model 1911 is a standard 5 inch barrel and slide with the full frame
The Commander model is a 4.25 barrel w/ shortened slide rails and a government sized grip.
The Officer model is a 3.5" inch barrel w/ shortened slide rails and a reduced length grip frame.
The Government and Commanders model 1911's accept the standard 7 rnd. or 8 rnd. magazines.
While the Officers model has a shorter magazine reducing the capacity to 6 rnds. However some aftermarket magazines are available that can give the additional 2 rnd. capacity to you for the Officers model.
All 1911 type pistols are based on the original colt 1911 design specifications but not all 1911 type slides are compatible to switch between each other due to proprietary differences some have.
Springfield armory makes a compact model 1911 with a 4" barrel/ slide and Para Ordnance makes an even shorter version of the Officers with a 3" barrel/ slide.
Barrel Length is the primary difference. The Government model has a 5.03 in (210mm) barrel, the commander a 4.25 in (108mm) barrel, and the officers a 3.5 in (89mm) barrel. The frames for the Government model and the commander are identical with the exception of the dust cover length. All of the internal parts for these models can be interchanged. The officers model rides on an abbreviated frame, holding 6 rounds in the magazine instead of seven for the others. The internal parts for the officers model are not interchangeable with the other two, and depending on the manufacturer, may not be interchangeable with other manufacturers officer models.
The frames are dimensionally identical, but of different materials. The New Agent is essentially an Officer's Model with an aluminum alloy frame.
Need to know barrel length and ALL markings.
L frame, .357 magnum, full length lug, 6 shot
The model 65 was produced with the K-frame.
I don't think so, because Colt frame having M1911A1 US ARMY with serial number 1152033 was produced in 1943 contrary to the fact that colt commander models production were onlystarted in 1949.
The "J" frame is the Smith & Wesson small frame revolver such as the model 36 .38 special. The smallest frame, as in the model 36 Chief's Special.
It is a K frame. The original .357 Magnum was an N frame (Model 27). The K frame is smaller and lighter.
The Model 13 is on a K frame.
Sorry, I can not help you with the serial number, but if you tell me the model or if there is no model on it the caliber and barrel length and if the butt is round or square I think I can tell you.
The frame size of a Smith and Wesson model 66 is K.
No, it is an L frame.
Winchester model 25 solid frame shotgun
The Model 13 is built on the K frame regardless of the N marking.
I've heard a long bed single cab s10 is the correct length and width.
I believe it to be the K frame
It is a K-frame.
Depends on condition, whether it's an Old Model or New Model, barrel length, sights, grips, grip frame, box, papers, etc.. Range from 175 to 1000 or more.
Blued J frame vs Stainless Steel L frame J frame holds 5 L frame can hold 6 or more
