I wanted to compare a steel frame gun and the perfect comparison would be my CCP but it needs to go back to the mothership. I have the label, the case number but thats another story.
Recoil, the Raptor has the advantage there because it's a 5 inch and a full length guide rod but not that big of a difference to me, the novice shooter.
Trigger, definitely the edge goes to the Raptor only because the Ruger trigger has just a little play in it where the Raptor has none plus the pull is lighter on the Raptor but not by much. The trigger is definitely not bad on the Ruger at all. In fact it is excellent just not a Kimber.
Malfunctions, none. I did put a little more stress on the Ruger by not cleaning it on purpose after the first one hundred rounds last week and it didn't miss a beat. Also l used 8 round Kimpro Tac Mags it came with 7 round magazines but had no problem with these. The Raptor was awesome as well.
Ease of cleaning, no difference really. Both have bushings. Very easy to take down clean and put back together.
Feel, I really have a thing for the pro size pistol. My first was my SCP and then the CCP and now a Commander, .25 inch longer, l don't know if it is because my shoulders bother me so much it is lighter or what it is. I find them more comfortable. The perfect size. I find myself looking toward them mostly when perusing the gun sites.
Final thought, one can buy a Chevy and go anywhere a Mercedes can go and even a Bentley or Rolls Royce. One can also take a pencil and poke holes in paper.
