It’s been years since I’ve owned a Colt. This one has been sitting in the store for about 3 months. 1954 was the 4th year of production for the LW Colt Commanders. The steel framed Combat Commanders wouldn’t appear until 1970. The Korean War had just ended, MIM parts were still in the future. Colt still made guns that rattled, but not to the extent that they do now. Lock up is tight. Barrel is sharp. No frame cracks, but it needs some TLC, new springs, and a good trigger job. Sooo, what now ?? I’m used to dealing with newer Springfield’s.
