Sorry, OP for the diversion.
That is correct, they continue to make the 1991 Series, which is nothing more than the old Series 80 with different rollmarkings. Where the confusion comes in is with model numbers vs. model names, two different things. As an example, your O4691 is a blued Commander Model in the 1991 series, an O1991 is a blued Government Model, that same Government Model in stainless is a O1091. The M1991A1 was a model name in the O1991 series, which haven’t been made since 2002 (the M1991A1s ), IIRC.
It is appropriate, however to refer to the current production Colt Government and Commander models (not XSE or Series 70 lines) as 1991 Models.
BTW, do you really live in Vatican City, Rome?
Brian... until you mentioned it, I hadn't heard of the Caracal. After doing some research, I can see why you might consider the Caracal C as a serious contender for your quest. I think a striker fired nine might be the ideal option so as to maintain good capacity with a capable caliber in a compact form factor. M&P Shield, perhaps?
Still, it sounds like you have serious difficulties in concealing a moderate sized weapon while in your suited role, so... who knows, only you will know what works best for you. It will be interesting to see where this quest takes you.
I have had both Dan Wesson CCO and have had Sig Ultra Nitron.
I very highly endorse both and have passed them on to family members.
Right now, I'm actively looking for a Sig Compact RCS for my own carry weapon.
I'm pretty well convinced that the CCO configuration is the best 1911 for carry.
Have you tried concealing a bobtailed commander? I know that it has a longer grip than a CCO, but the shape of the grip may reduce printing and ease concealment so that it would work as well as a CCO (or not...only you will be able to decide that). If so, the Dan Wesson Guardian might be worth looking at.
Help me out... what is a CCO?

Anyone recommend mating my current Colt OM frame with a Commander Slide and barrel. It should be "plug and play" no? I'm just not 100% on the feed ramp angle if that's a factor.
The Colt New Agent is a great handgun. I've had two. One each in .45 and 9mm. Some don't like the trench sight, but it didn't affect my ability to aquire a target quickly and hit where I was aiming. Approximately the size of a Glock 19 but slimmer. Got both for a hair under $1k. Great quality, not a single failure of any kind with standard and +p ammo in both varieties (.45 and 9mm). Something to think about. And of course....it has the horsey on the slide.
Besides those, I've also had a RIA Compact 1911A1 in .45 variety. A bit heavy with the all steel frame and slide, but very reliable and won't break the bank. About half the price of the Colts. Not as well finished, but goes bang every time.
