You folks here are SO nice.
Thank you for taking the time to look at the pics and to comment.
I directed the owner here and reading your comments on his new gun
has really made his day!
He is an LEO working in a very active area of operations. He recently gained approval to
carry his 1911 on the job.
And he is my best friend........
This build and its reception means a lot to us both.
Thank you sirs!
Beautiful Colt! Would love to have my OM finished in that dull look. It's been worked by EVERYBODY of the last 20+ years(Wilson,Heinie,Siles-NYC,and EGW), so reliability etc all good. Hell, if that pistol was signed by all those guys it be worth a ton!

I can honestly say I have NEVER seen one of your custom jobs I didnt love looking at. That thing is awesome.

Simply gorgeous-looking Commander, and the photography is top-notch. You mentioned the owner is a pro; so glad this will be a working gun and not a safe queen. That has to be rewarding for the craftsman, as well.
My next 1911 will be a steel Commander, but I think I'd need to hit the Powerball to have one like this join the rotation!
