    like I posted in my post about having the slide cut, I just acquired this 1975 Colt Combat Commander. I would love to refinish it and give it some upgrades. I’m one of those that just can’t be satisfied with sights and plenty of rounds down range. I was thinking of having the slide cut for a...

    I bought this one about a year ago, simply because it is a Combat Commander with some nice machining done. The only marks on the gun is VOA, which some research shows up as Vision of Accuracy, stamped on to the hood. Any ideas or thoughts about who did the work?

    I recently acquired a nice 1975 Colt Combat Commander. It has the staked in front sight and dovetail rear. The front sight is loose and the night sights are non-existent any more. My question is should I send the slide off to be cut? If so, where do you guys recommend? Will the entire slide...

    Have a question, what is the factory standard recoil spring weight for a 5’ springer TRP and a Colt 4.25’ Commander? I’ve checked several sites and the recommendations for recoil spring weights are all over the place, I want to replace mine on both guns but want to keep it stock since they both...

    Last month I bought this carbon steel (not aluminum) commander for a build I am going to do with a well known smith. I decided a month after I bought it that if I was going to spend that much money, I was going to build it on a Government 5" base gun, so I am selling this one. This gun is NIB...

    Ok the pics will make you cringe. I picked up this gun a few weeks ago and things have slowed down just enough to have time to mess with it. This gun looks like it was on the wrong end of Bubba and his hammer in a few spots. Not sure what to do with it. Need some opinions on whether or not...

    Thinking about looking for the stainless frame, no firing pin block, brass bead front sight & wide notch rear sight Wiley Combat Commander. Looks like a good deal for the $$$. Anyone have any experience, opinions on these or a better alternative close to this price point; looks like they are...

    I bought this pistol a few years back sight unseen. I got real excited when I received a tip where it could be located. I was so excited I told them I would take it and sent payment. I did this with virtually no questions asked other than finish appearance and payment address. Sometime after I...

    I have an number of 1911s -- just never found a Colt I really wanted (although a buddies mid-60s NM lived in my safe for quite awhile) -- that changed this week when I discovered a Combat Commander in excellent condition at a nearby LGS. Dated it as 1971 manufacture (serial # 70BS40XX) on...

    I picked this up a few years back. He said that he only put a couple mags threw it and that's about what I shot threw it. It's safe to say that it's had less than 50 rounds put threw it sence the Rodgers rebuild. Here is the the description from the original posting: Chuck Rogers Colt Custom...
