View Full Version : Round butt treatment,.......fitted a MSH

A while back, I bought a Colt Commander from Chuck Rogers.
It was built for a friend on Chuck's, while it was nearly perfect for me, the previous
owner had a arched MSH installed. Chuck expertly modified the heel of the frame and
the MSH to what he called a "round butt" treatment. This is a very slight rounding of the
lower corner of the frame and housing.
I decided a flap MSH would suit my shooting style and grip a tad better. I ordered a blued
MSH and blended as per the pics below. It was then polished & cold blued.
Any thoughts,........?
As received from Chuck with the arched MSH.

Very nicely done.

Did you do the reblue yourself too?

It came out perfectly.

Thanks Guys,.......two hours with files & sand paper in hand.
Makes you REALLY appreciate a good Pistol Smith's true talent and passion!

Yes, I used a bit of Blue Wonder for the touch-up.

Yeah, it takes guts. Good for you. It looks great. I've been wanting to do that to a couple of carry 1911's for several yrs. It will sure help to lessen the printing through your shirt.

It was JUST a main spring housing. :dunno:
Chuck did all the hard frame work, I just tried to match the MSH to it.

Nah, nice EVHCT's. I like that build, it's unique and I suspect very effective.

Still that takes some guts. I'm not one to work on my guns at all. Good work. :thumbsup:

Indeed, there may be more "technically proficient" guitar players out there, but none more innovative or influential.

Amen to that. :thumbsup: And those more "technically proficient" players, still have Eddie to thank for quite a bit. :cool: He was a true pioneer and is a genius in his own right. :)

Eddie was the AMN back in the day! And just think,.........
all that "brown sound" goodness on a POS, home built, Frankenstien,
guitar! !


I do need to get some pics with better lighting. The Commander shoots
VERY well.
