    Just finished, S&W Scandium Commander

    I think this one turned out really nice.
    S&W Scandium frame
    Caspian Carbon Steel Slide
    10-8 Rear Sight
    Novak Tritium Front Sight
    Greider Match Trigger
    STI Sear
    Caspian Hammer
    STI Titanium Strut
    Caspian Firing Pin
    Ed Brown Tactical Safety
    Caspian Grip Safety
    Custom "stippled" grips
    Stippled Front Strap
    4 lb trigger

    All business for sure. My idea of a perfect 1911 carry gun.

    Customer should be happy

    I think the customer will be really happy with this one. Very understated. And it gives him the internal extractor with no additional "safeties". I do a lot of Scandium bobtails but this is one of my favorites.

    is that a bobtailed FS frame? From the pics the proportions may be distorted. Looks like an Officers frame but I have never seen a bobtail on an OF so I had to ask.

    No, not a stray just taking over from where S&W left off. I do a lot of these custom and the customer just was not happy with the external extractor or extra safeties. Of course I could deal with the safeties by just putting in a "series 70" spacer plate but that would have not dealt with the extractor. I like the Scandium guns just the way the come from S&W with a few changes. Most of the Bob-C.A.T. guns I do have Heinie sights, bobtail, target bushing and reliability and trigger work. And yes the pedigree on this one is a lot of "ED Brown this and Wilson that" but all that means is that the parts inside the gun are some of the best of the best. I guess that is why it is a custom. ;)
    I am hoping to get to the range with this one before it goes home. And the barrel is a National Match by the way with a 60 degree target crown recessed.

    And yes full sized Commander frame. I have done some bobtails and round tails on officer length guns. The last one I did was a SA EMP

    I think you might be right about that.

    Thanks. Customer got this one a couple of weeks ago and he is already carrying it daily. I love that my guns get used and scratched and shot. Not much into safe queens. I have another one I just finished that I will post pics of tomorrow. SA Lightweight Champion Bobtail. Hand checkered, trigger work, bobtail and a bit more. Finished in Duracoat Dark Warrior Earth (gray/green) and looking pretty intimidating. This one will be a duty gun for a local LEO to be carried concealed. Already did a full size for him when in uniform.
