    Nice looking little pistol Sir! Well done! :thumbs:

    I can't buy something like that, because as soon as I saw your pics I started thinking about how I'd change this, and change that, etc., etc.. I'm just better off starting with a blank frame and slide I guess... ;)

    Being the LB virgin I am I don’t know enough to know about making changes yet.

    I have bought or traded into a Guncrafter No Name, a Wilson CQB, and a Les Baer Boss in that price range. Patience is a virtue.

    I’m late to this party and see you’ve already made a purchase, but I was going to suggest calling SteveO and chat with him about what you’re looking for. He seems to almost always have an available base gun in his possession, and he could walk you through the optioning/cost process.
    I’ve got a gun with him now myself.:thumbs:

    On the other hand, like has been said, there are some smoking deals on semi customs right now, and some sellers smoking crack trying to get full retail for theirs.

    I just ordered a Dan Wesson A2. Had a hankering for a carbon steel DW.

    I think you will really like the A2, I have the Commander and it's a nice pistol.

    Nice! I really would like to pick up a full size LB. The guys on this forum really are enablers. :cigar:

    Yeah I’m tossing the idea around of selling my ECO in 45 or trading towards a full size something.

    $hit all the testosterone I’m on they probably couldn’t keep up lol. I need a well weathered woman for all that. It would just be weird now as I have twin girls so that’s out of the question haha.

    Did you notice that it sports a Gunsite low safety?

    Well, I bought another Yost Gunsite (a CCO, also '99 build) a few weeks back and was originally only looking for one, so if I decide to get rid of the commander I'll drop you a line.

    Thank you.

    I don't suppose you have an original GSP? I have been looking for one for 10-years.

    I noticed the safety after it was pointed out to me but wasn’t aware of the brand. Thanks for the info.
