    Pretty happy to acquire a very good Colt 9mm Lightweight Commander, manufactured in 1951! It also came with an interesting Colt rampant pony figure. This one will be sent out for a custom build.
  2. Want To Buy Classifieds
    As the title says, I am open to either buy or trade. For trade, the condition of your 9mm must be equal to that of my 1952 38 super commander. Yours doesn’t have to come with box and documents. https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/pre-60-commander-38-super.178038/#post-2707042 Thanks for...

    Just picked up this one as a base gun for another custom build. Interestingly, this one has a colt WWI-style short wide-spur hammer. Looks cool and works well without the hammer bite.

    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...

    I got this gun in a trade. It is new in box/unfired. Another forum member generously gave me a nice set of grips for it, that I will include. It comes with all the standard factory stuff. $1500 OBO or consider a partial trade plus cash for an older Colt in decent/unmolested condition.

    I'm interested in the opinions of readers on the various lightweight 5 inch 1911 9mm options. If you've owned, or shot, a LW 5 inch in 9mm, don't hesitate to chime in. thanks, Brent

    Hello Fellow Addicts, I am at a point where I really feel like I need to scale back the money invested in my collection. I very seldom get to the range anymore, so these just sit in my safe. Because of this, I will be putting some pieces up for sale that I didn't think that I would sell... In...

    This was another one of my attempts to fall in love with a lightweight commander. I bought it on here from another member put about 100 rounds through it, which would put it over 500 rounds total, so it has a very low round count. It's in very good shape with very few signs of handling, comes...

    I was sure I saw a Dan Wesson for sale here in the classifieds one time so I went to the Dan Wesson website and they are not listed. They have a 9mm lightweight CCO, but no 38 Super. Don't want to spend Nighthawk money, so that limits the choices. Also, would prefer it not have a rounded butt...

    I am looking to sell my Springfield Armory 1911-A1 locally, but I'm not even sure what I have here. I bought it new back in the mid 90's. I believe the LW serial number means an aluminum frame? It is 29oz empty, and about 38oz w/8 rounds of 230gr JHP. I fired it only occasionally over the years...
