I think you’ll be out of luck without a full frame 4.5”-6” with your aesthetic and hand requirements.
Your two options come down to a few differences:
Striker fire over hammer
The 1911 wins hands down with trigger/hammer/accuracy in my experience , stock, open sights
The 1911 “loses” number of rounds: weight ratio for sure…a day slogging mountains and saddles carrying a loaded 1911😒
Cleaning the 1911 depending on tolerances can be a pain in the ass.
Full frame Glock 10mm is my hunting carry, it’s good for big hands, grip is a 2x4. Trigger is awful, so if your handy with triggers I can recommend
a couple good trigger upgrades that’ll make it a joy. Always fires, 15+1rounds on a chest rig. Heavy, but still less than my full frame Kimber.
