Manufacturer’s Description

The Cabot Guns S103 Commander is a commander-size 1911-style semiauto pistol built on a 416 stainless billet steel frame with a 416 stainless billet steel slide, and chambered in .45 ACP. Cabot says that unlike most other commander-size 1911s, the S103 Commander isn’t shortened internally, too; rather, it features the same internal full-size dimensions as full-size 1911s, thus preserving the 1911’s originally designed cycle length and internal function.

Other features include:

  • Hand fitting between the frame and slide;
  • a 4.25″ national match barrel crowned flush with the bushing;
  • a hand polished end on the guide rod;
  • a hand polished feed ramp;

  • 24 LPI rhombus checkering on the frontstrap and mainspring housing;
  • Trinity Stripe grip serrations/checkering on the slide’s rear;
  • a left-side thumb safety constructed from billet steel;
  • an aluminum tristar trigger with a 3.5–4 lb. pull;
  • a contoured trigger guard with a high-rise undercut;
  • a beveled and chamfered magwell;
  • a low-mount fixed rear sight (an adjustable sight is optional);
  • a white-dot front sight with a blind pin;
  • slide-top serrations to reduce glare and lead the shooters eye to the target;
  • a beavertail grip safety constructed from billet steel;
  • either black G-10 grips with either a Fibonacci spiral or a tactile surface, or walnut grips with either checkering or a Fibonacci spiral; and
