I have a kimber stainless and a Para like the sights on the para (3 dot) kimber has a target site kimber will not accept other 1911 mags get failure to feed (still breaking in only 200 shoots down range) the para has never had a failure with any ammo my money is on the para
I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Colt. And, for a first 1911, I'd have to agree with fellow posters and get a 5-inch model.

If he intends to carry it I see nothing wrong with a Commander size as his first. BTW, a true Commander length barrel is 4.25", not the 4" that the Springfield Champion has.
A Commander has the shorter slide and barrel but retains the full size grip and uses full size mags. If you do plan to carry and you are used to carrying Glocks, a commander size 1911 would be ideal, especially of you went with a lightweight model with an alloy frame.
You also will need a good holster and belt. I can't stress this enough. 1911s are thinner in the pants but are a bit heavier. Some folks get discouraged about carrying the best design ever invented because of the weight.
I DO have to ask this, and should have asked this first. How much experience do you have shooting a 1911? If you have in fact had time at th range with one, what length was it and what are your thoughts on it?
There's nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive
