Of all of your work I've seen, this is my favorite. I really like the combination of ball cuts, HP cuts, and raked recoil spring cap and front sight leading edge.

Just beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing.

I really like that Commander. How did you make it black? Did you do that beauty for a customer or is it for sale?

"Slide to frame fit. Fabricate and install hardened steel inserts."

What is this process? I've never heard of inserts.

Chuck Rogers, you are a very bad man.

A great gunsmith, but a bad guy because you make me want to spend money.

I love it.

I like the Hi-Power cuts on the slide.

Cool stuff. :thumbsup:

I have them on my avatar gun this month. :)

pistolwrench
02-17-2010, 23:12
I have been asked "What purpose do the hi-power' cuts have?"

Depending on my grumpiness level I might respond,

"I carry daily using an inside the waistband holster, and when my pistol comes out, many of my holsters close up a bit. In a real world situation, the ability to re-holster your gat may be as important as its presentation. The narrowed nose helps.
Also, the step works great for my preferred method of a press check."

Another alternative for me would be to lose 50lbs........
but that ain't likely.
:cool:

Would it be in poor taste to curse you just a bit for making my stock of 1911's look so anemic (again)?

Or, better said, would it preclude me from getting future work done when the world somehow forgets to keep you so overbooked that you can't see daylight???

Oh, okay, fine then. It's beautiful. I'll dream of it tonight. It's causing my EB to need some counseling... Howzat?

JK-linux
02-17-2010, 23:28
Very nice. If the wait list was less than a lifetime, I might own one someday. The bobbed nose and BHP cuts make the pistol.
