So I have this Colt Combat Commander (.45ACP) from 1973 that I have been holding for a cool build from a gunsmith, but lately I have been more inclined to do as much work as I can myself. Not everything is going to be possible and I will need to send parts out for certain work I can't do, but over the last few weeks I have been starting on some of the stuff I can do.
The parts list is going to be:
Kart EZ-Fit barrel (fitted by me)
Harrison Design Barrel Bushing
EGW Long Checkered Recoil Plug
Wilson Recoil Guide Rod
Cylinder and Slide Ultra Light Hammer
EGW Ti Hammer Strut
EGW Ti MSH Cap
Colt Sear Spring
Ed Brown Perfection Sear
Ed Brown Disconnector
10-8 Flat Trigger
Harrison Design Retro Thumb Safety
EGW Grip Safety
Harrison Design Grips
I still haven't decided on sights or if I am going to swap the MSH.
So what I have done so far is fit the barrel, thumb safety and grip safety. Did some reshaping and matching on the thumb safety and grip safety to make it look the way I want it to.
The last few weeks I have been high cutting the frame and bevelling the magwell, all by hand.
In a few months maybe I will be somewhere with this all....
