    It may not 100% qualify as a "bargain" but for a GI with duel 9mm/38 super barrels it's not bad at all https://www.gunbroker.com/item/884476624

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but old Colts are new to me. Is there a WC magazine that will work with my 1979 Combat Commander in 9mm? I just spoke to WC customer service and they didn't know. If not Wilson, what other mags would you recommend. Thanks

    I have had a problem over the last year or so with specks of rust on the slide of my Colt lightweight Commander. Most of the rust has occurred on the side closest to my body. It has been my routine CCW for a few years and I hate not carrying it. I carry it OWB in a Blackhawk leather pancake...

    Picked this up yesterday. The stock grips are the fugliest chunks of wood I have ever seen, so new shoes are the order of the day. Pardon some lint and old T shirt on the main spring housing checkering. Locks up tight, no rattles, trigger is acceptable. MSH is steel not plastic. And here tis
