The well-worn Commander arrived today.

OK, so I've been infected with this custom 1911 virus.

I'm putting together (actually my gunsmith friend is) a 9mm Combat Commander to shoot and, sometimes, carry.

It's so worn he said he wouldn't do anything to the trigger. It feels about right.

I have some Ed Brown parts on the way along with Novak geezer sights.

And, props, to this "EGW" comany. The gal answering the phone REALLY knows her stuff.

They might be machining a stainless, Commander barrel bushing when they do their usual run Monday.

Here's the "theme" I'm going for, looks-wise:

Bear with a noob, will ya?

REALLY good people, and the women answering the phones know their stuff, too!

Looks like your project should be fun. I really like your concept. I've been thinking about having Ron Phillips built a gun for me based on a Ruger frame (Ruger does the casting for Caspian).
