    Gents, I am seriously thinking about another Phineas C. Zoid build - "SONOFAZOID" My first series of random thoughts / questions: I used a stainless frame to put under a vintage blued steel slide for my first build. As expected, I needed to do a little fitting on the frame to get it to fit...

So, when I put the grip on...

    Hello Addicts! Bought a Colt Lightweight Commander a few months back. Love the gun...been carrying it in and off along with my G27 (gasp.....but carry G22 on duty...hence the 27 when off duty). Been exploring the possibility of bobtailing the Colt for some better concealment...anyone have...
