The Colt Lightweight Commander Elite traces its roots back to 1949, when Colt developed the first production pistol to use an alloy frame for lighter weight. The Elite Series was introduced as Colt saw that they needed a 1911 with features sought by competition shooters.
The Elite Series fills this need by having front and rear slide serrations, an ambidextrous safety, a three hole lightened trigger with extended travel, Novak night sights, G10 grips, and more.
The Lightweight Commander Elite also has a Cerakoted grey alloy frame that's not just light, but also durable and IonBond black matte slide.
The alloy frame reduces the weight of the Lightweight Commander to 26 ounces, 10 ounces less than the Stainless XSE Commander. This makes it an even better choice for carry.
