    I was surfing this morning and found this wave... Shortly before our entry into the Korean War, the U.S. government was searching for a lighter pistol for military officers. In hopes of securing a lucrative federal contract, Colt created an aluminum-frame, 9 mm-chambered version of the famed...

    I bought this last summer when Ted had it in his shop knowing it would be a place holder until mine was completed. My steel 9mm Commander is out for hard/chrome and will be done in the next 60 days and my KGB 9mm Commander Lightweight build is nearing completion so....BOOM Ted said it was late...

    Shot my new Colt LW Commander. It definitely has more bounce that my 5" Garrison. That stubby grip safety ain't cutting it! It's a 67 so I went old school and stoked it with Speer 200 grain "Flying Ashtrays"

    New listing to clean up some of the old conversations. I've reduced the price for this listing. Thank you all for your interest. For sale is my Fusion Firearms Pro Series CCO. This is a “custom build” from Bob Serva and crew at Fusion. It’s not a kit gun or a Freedom Series gun. The gun is in...

    I’m looking to add a commander to my collection but can’t seem to quite find what I’m looking for… I have a 5in Les Baer and their concept VII seems to fit the bill pretty well but wouldn’t mind trying something else as variety is the spice of life! Not super picky on features but I would like...

    The colt shot great, however the trigger just seemed like there was some gunk preventing it from being “perfect”. I figured after 70 years of being carried or whatever…it’s bound to have some dust bunnies in it. So here we go: Nothing surprising here, all looks good to me except just so much...

    Commander would prefer a colt, would also prefer series 70 but really doesn’t matter. Finish also doesn’t matter but stainless or a coating would be great. Basically just sticking this out there and see what I find. Was thinking about buying the Gunsite commander but wanna see what’s out there...
