Extremely pleased to share this one with you all. Recently purchased from the original owner. He purchased the commander new in 79/80 and sent to Pachmayr for the work. Gun is anib purported to be only test fired at colt and Pachmayr.
Absolutely top tier and magnificent! What an extremely rare find and with an extended barrel! There are a number of us Addicts with Combat Specials and I’m sure ‘Doc Ho’ will chime in as he has extensive knowledge about these pistols. Congrats!
Thanks guys, I’m stoked about this one. In looking it over, it appears that the dust cover has been relieved on both sides back to just in front of the slide stop pin. Was this an option? Not something I have seen before.
If you decide to shoot it, please let us know how it goes. I was a little hesitant to shoot my ‘like new’ Combat Special which I found a few months ago, but curiosity got the best of me and I had to know how it shot... I was not disappointed. Once again, your CS is a beauty!
