Refined answer = HK45C, P220 and Custom 1911 Commander for me. OMMV...

HK45c. The 220 is awesome but a bit large for a do it all. The CZ97 is awesome for a crew served weapon Smile the HK45c can Goldilocks its way into any application.

My reasoning below.

The HK45 is a great handgun, but also requires a driver permit and a place to park.

The P220 is one of the best .45 factor pistols built, with the exception of custom 1911's. I'm biased a bit, but I do like the P220.

There is a nearly endless supply of 1911 choices that range from fairly affordable to mortgage-your-house-and-throw-in-the-kids expensive, some of which are reliable, some of which are choosy, nearly all of which will run until the extractor detunes, on some magazines, but which have cool factor all the same, and the 1911 is a brilliant design that grows on you like moss on a stone. You won't own just one. But you may find that once you do, you end up carrying something else, and of course, unless you get a double stack pistol, they are limited in capacity (carried revolvers for years, so don't see that as a deal breaker).

The HK45C wasn't on the list, but it's a great (albeit limited capacity) handgun that's relatively concealable, comfortable to shoot, accurate, and feeds like a puppy in a box of spam. I have a few, like them, and trust them.

Not mentioned, and should have been, is the Glock 21, assuming the subject is .45 handguns. If you want one that you can fire for the next 200,000 rounds that will still be accurate, still be feeding and functioning, and that doesn't care if you just crawled through a swamp, fell out of an airplane, got dropped in the arctic, staggered out of the desert, or cut your way through 200 miles of jungle, and will feed just about anything, with bulletproof magazines, has the capability to be personalized, and already has enough aftermarket support in parts and holsters for the next two centuries, and the best factory support on the planet, then you might consider the Glock 21.

I have a Dan Wesson Specialist and have had numerous 1911 versions, I have had a bunch of Glocks but the grip angle does not work for me(nothing against Glocks). Im focused on those 3 including the P220c I guess if the HK45c is thrown in.

P220 for me.
Got some time behind my wife's former boss' 220ST & loved it.
Also tried his USP45C & didn't shoot it as well as the 220. Same story with the XD45 they had out that day, shot it the worst of the 3.

I've had a 45C and liked it but have sold every H&K handgun I've ever had. I've never had a CZ97.

The P220 was my 1st ever gun and still my favorite of any gun, so my choice is an easy one.

The P220.

I went looking for a new 45ACP a few months ago. I have 1911's, 220's and an HK45 but wanted something different. I ended up with an HK MK23 and a ZC97. The 23 is great out of the box. The 97 was very poor until Cajun Gun Works did their thing to it. It is now my favorite 45, its all steel, no friggin rail and decent sights. However, trying to find a good holster for it isn't eazy.

CZ97B with a Cajun GW trigger job. Doesn't get much better than this.

It'd be a Sig P220 for me.

The classic folded carbon steel slide P220 is undisputedly the best commercial .45 auto pistol ever produced.

What do you want to use it for?

Of the three guns mentioned the only one thin and light enough for concealed carry is the P220.

The HK45 is quite large for its 10 round capacity and the CZ97 is a wonderful shooting big and heavy beast of a gun.

Another vote for a mid '90s P220.

Unless of course, it is a 10mm P220. Wink

Mostly paper punching but could be a bedside gun

P220 Match. They still pop up in the saner moments of the used gun market. Best sight radius, comfortable in recoil and the only downside is that it seems to cycle a hair slower than other .45s.

Then again, in all honesty, I never quite grasped the concept of a "compact" .45, at least any more compact than a P220 ST (which is also still available from time to time and also an excellent option - and doesn't cycle particularly slowly). The CZ is a hair oversized for that role IMHO.

For just a range gun the CZ 97BD is hard to beat.
