I hope you guys find this interesting or informative ;)

Nighthawk got my 1977 Colt Commander (38 super) on Wednesday and today I got a quote.

I was so impressed previously speaking with Bob Reeves that virtually anything I wanted could be done including little things like serrating the slide stop, using a WC white gold bead, dehorning the gun, spiral fluted barrel (the only thing I'm still undecided on) etc.

Everything will be Smoked Nitride except for the hammer, trigger and barrel & barrel bushing. I want a classic aged look with little touches of modernization.

Here's the service and cost.

High Cut and Serrate Front Strap, Vertical Serrations to Match MSH - $225.00

Machine Frame To Accept Ramped Barrel - $150.00

CUSTOM WORK Flat Top and Machine Arrow Style Serrations on Slide, like on NHC Classic model $250.00

French Border on Slide $125.00

Barrel, Match Grade w/ Bushing, Installation & Fit, Ramped $339.95

**Medium solid trigger**
**Use carry style skeletonized hammer**

Safety, Beavertail Safety, Nighthawk, Beavertail Grip Safety, Install, Fit & Tune $165.00
**Use carry style beavertail**

Shorten Slide Stop & Bevel Hole In Frame $50.00

CUSTOM WORK Serrate End of Slide Stop $50.00

Hand Bevel Sharp Edges Of Slide & Frame, Dehorn Controls & Small Parts, Blend Rear Of Slide/Frame & Blend Grip Safety To Frame $200.00

The front strap will be serrated to match the mainspring housing, I'm not sure what a ring hammer is ?

One of my favorite sayings is "Rebuild what you have: into what you want!"
Great ideas on making your old friend just the way you want it!
