Forgot to mention on this gun I am thinking on some day:
What modifications? I hate that little bump on the back bottom of the grip safety. I've never had a problem mashing in the smooth kind, so I'll undoubtedly quickly swap that out with my local gunsmith (in case there is some fitting required).
Also, whatcha bet there is a full length guide rod hidden in this photo? I can swap that out for the standard recoil spring plug easily enough my own self.
And that's it of required changes. I might as well miniaturize the thumb safety on the side I don't use, too. So 3 parts. Nothing else needs to be monkeyed with, as it comes with Tritium sights. I likes them.
Update: BULL BARRELS and no GI style barrel bushing? Crap. Square one.
Where are the decent GI style barrel Commanders? I mean besides stuff like the Officer size Les Baer. Or the slightly larger Les Baer. (Note: Lack of left hand thumb safety on the second link) Oooo, concept VIII. LB calles them 'Commanche' size. One in non-stainless is a Concept VII.
Smiff? Crap. Scandium seems to be what they offer for the frame. Better double check the Les Baers for all steel construction, too, or cross them off the list. If so, I'm back to pure custom or get lucky with a used or new Colt (O4012XSE). Maybe investigate what SIG has on offer, too.
Science With A Purpose - Too often you find science doing things like studying the mating behavior of sea slugs, but today is not that day.
