An old design coupled with modern tech... results in a super-cool 1911. If I remember correctly, this one's a double-stack.

ummm. polymer doesnt suit 1911. it has to be metal :P
from the pictures above, i would say its a single stack.

The .45 ACP version holds 10+1 rds, while the 9mm version has a 15rd capacity.

From my findings, there's roughly a difference of 8-10 ounces, unloaded, weight between the polymer and metal framed versions, with the polymer giving 2 rds extra capacity. The difference is less when fully loaded guns are compared.

here's another polymer frame/hi cap 1911 from Israel, the BUL M-5. 13+1 in .45 and 18+1 in 9mm(not bad) and 10+1 in the ultra x model.

"Unlike another hi-capacity polymer 1911s, the BUL M-5 fiber-reinforced polymer grip is molded onto a stainless steel implant, creating a one-piece durable and solid frame."-website(http://www.bultransmark.net)

personally i think they look pretty good, specially the commander variant!

The BUL M5 was sold in the US by Charles Daly...

The polymer framed 1911s add an additional plus point for those who wish to carry this gun... though true fans of the Government Model 1911 would stick with the original-like metal framed versions

Metal or no metal looks pretty nice though.

KZ-45

Imagine a lightweight, 10+1 round capacity stainless steel reinforced space-age polymer frame – with a legendary Wilson Combat® upper custom fitted (the KZ Compact has a capacity of 9+1). We imagined that and built it – the result is the revolutionary KZ and KZ Compact.

The KZ is not like any other composite frame firearm. The KZ is what happens when you combine the science and technology of Kevlar-reinforced polymer with the art, engineering, and experience of Wilson Combat®. The KZ is setting the standard for polymer-frame pistols in performance, reliability, and accuracy - just like every Wilson.

We've permanently bonded a stainless steel insert with all the critical wear areas - pin holes, feed ramp, frame rails, etc - in a Kevlar-reinforced polymer frame for excellent strength and durability. Wilson Combat’s® design gives you two rounds more than a standard 1911 with a grip that is actually narrower, and an empty weight of only 34 ounces for full-size - the kind of benefit you want in a carry pistol, on the range, or in a tactical situation. And since it's a Wilson Combat® firearm, we custom build it for you the way you order it: Tactical Combat sights or adjustable sights, single side Tactical safety or ambidextrous safety, full size or compact, even a light mount. The standard features are what you expect from Wilson - a precision fitted and installed stainless steel barrel, extended tactical thumb safety, our High-Ride beavertail grip safety, and Wilson Combat Tactical sight system with tritium inserts. And the best standard feature of any firearm in the world - Wilson Combat's® maximum satisfaction lifetime promise of unparalleled customer service.

A top shooter recently visited Wilson Combat and had his first experience with the KZ. "Build me one of these in a .40, and I can campaign with it," he told us. The KZ delivers that kind of confidence - and isn't that what firearms are supposed to do?

Whether you're looking for your first Wilson, or your next Wilson - the KZ may well be the best value in our line of weapons. Put a KZ on your side today.

Salam All,
Wilson is one of the oldest and biggest customizer of the 1911 pistols, and I am sure his designs are great. But there is another gun out in the market. It was formed by two top pistoleros during the late 80s and although they are both no longer in partnership - their gun designs have remained the same. They, in my opinion, re-invented the wheel in the 1911 market. STI and SVI. Check them out.

if im not mistaken ,the owner of SVI (also called infinity firearms or Strayer-Voigt Infinity Firearms) worked for or was part owner of STI.their guns are mostly known as 2011's!!!

STI is just an hour north of San Antonio. I really need to visit their factory. They make excellent, I mean really excelletn guns.
