Evening all - first I not familar with Jim Hoag's work other than pics I find on the web. But a local shop has a 1977 Combat Commander (looked up the serial number) that had some work done by Jim Hoag, it doesn't appear to be a full custom no checkered strap, MSH or squared/checked trigger guard. Shop has not let me field strip but I can see the J. Hoag in the underside of the slide through the mag-well. It does have the S&W K-frame rear sight, barrel accuracy block, lowed ejection port, Swenson ambi safety and a spur hammer ?? and hard chromed. They want $1799- Question: is it his work and if so is it a fair price? Thanks !!
