be greatful deadguy....thats a heck of a nice find.
long time ago i had similar, i say similar cause--though it was the shop owners gun, we could not get it to run proper.
and as i wanted it as a carry gun, i was sad. than along came the Defender a few years later and i was happy.
it is still on my short list of hand guns i am wanting.

Beautiful! I drooled on one just like it in a hardware store back home, many times, when I was too young to buy it. However, the web of my right hand almost starts bleeding, just looking at it. Next to unmodified Browning Hi-Powers, no handgun bites me as badly as do those old Commanders.
Nice find.....I'll give you $100. for it!
