short answer...

Yes. I have both and don't bother to sort mags. They both have the same receiver, just a shorter barrel and slide on the CDR. The officer model on the other hand has a smaller grip.

Is right. Commander, yes, Officer's model, no.

Jay..

I'm trying to remember, and I think it is mainly that they are long. Also harder to get the after market parts... the specs are the same on all parts as with the Gov model.

compact question

i carry my pistol while i work,im a field tech in pa and sometimes my gun gets exposed and im thinking about getting a smaller gun but i fear i might get into a situation in where i might be a hero(God forbid anything happens) but i want the better playing card. i was thinking g26. 9mm and bout 10round other hand officer 1911. more stopping power. is it worth it i pick the officer or g26?

minute. Once you look over what the various bullets/calibers can do you can go back to pondering which gun fits you.
