My sole handgun is now gone, it has been traded for a Remington 870 Police.  So now I'm in search for the replacement handgun.  For the foreseeable furture, it will be my only handgun.  I do not carry but do have a permit and like to leave the option open.  This will be a do it all piece; carry, target, bedside, etc.  

To this point I'm leaning toward getting a Colt 1991 (NRM) Stainless Steel commander.  If I get one I hope to do some minor customizing including new wood grips, replacing MIM sear, and having a little custom work done by Novak.  They are within driving distance and like to have them do the reliability package and nightsight installation.

Anyone know the best place to find the Colt O4091U?  Also, would I be better off going with a different 1911?  If so, which should I consider and why.

I see no reason to get a different gun.  You pretty much picked the best all around 1911 there is for a custom project.  FROST18E recommended these guys to me as being very good on prices and great to deal with:

Clyde Armory is the fellow that had them for that price.  I ended up taking a different route.  

I WILL get an 1911 eventually.  Just figued this other piece was better for me at the moment.
