Larry.. I just had to scoop the gun... for the historical value and knowing it is a true CCW in every way.. The owner must have staked his life on it, and carried it every day of his life. The grips are a bit worn on the edges, and fit beter in the hand than normal grips. I believe it was carried, carried, and more carried.. thus, the normal wear on metal, and grips. The gun it tight.. amazing..and orignial Colt 45ACP BBL.
Ya know something.with all the tupperware, and space-age metal guns, I'm starting to revert back to the older guns, as the ones I've recently posted. Must be an "Old fart" thing... or is it the fact that guns were better made, and crafted best, in the old days..
Psssssst <whispering> I found a Colt 1911 UA Army GI for 425.00.. It's VERY rough, with an attempt to grind off the usual Uncle Sam markings.. and the grips are very worn, as well as the metal.....thus....another historic piece I'll pick up soon..Pix to follow soon.. it's S/N 67000

Yow! Very nice. I think I paid about that much when I bought mine new in 1978. Still got it, and it's still fairly tight (even after untold thousands of rounds). I have put mine away again (for preservation purposes), and am now carrying my Dan Wesson CBOB. Commanders are great guns. Congrats.
