I'm thinking about getting another carry gun but I haven't been able to get a straight answer on this issue -

Which is taller, an HK45C/USP-Compact or a Colt Commander/Nighthawk T3 model?

Pictures would be much appreciated...

(EDIT: never mind, someone told me the answer, the T3 is actually an officer's frame, not a commander frame, you can delete this topic now...)

I know you sort of found your answer, but I did want to clarify things.

The T3 being an officer's frame is going to be the shortest out of the 3 listed. Generally these 1911's will be about 4.5" tall. A Commander 1911 will have a standard grip which tends to run about 5.5" tall. The HK45C is about the same height as the standard Government/Commander 1911.

The 1911 is going to be more slender than the H&K, but the HK45C and USPC are solid carry choices.
