    New gun

    Here's that Colt Lightweight Commander I was considering. I chose this due to the positive resonses from all of you. Thanks a bunch for helping me to make the decision. It's got Trijicons, Bar-sto BBland Bushing, Chip McCormick beavertail, sear, hammer, ejector, hammer, extended safety and adjustible trigger. Also Wolf recoil springs and firing pin assembly. The gun came with Coco Bolo DD grips, and Colt wrap-around rubber grips. Also came with a Don Hume pancake, 8 shot wilson mag. The gun's about 95% with a FULL ramping, throating and polishing. The work was sent out and had the work done by a Gunsmith the trading post uses in maine.
    I figuerd out how much the guy sunk into it, and it came to about 500.00 in parts alone. not including smithing.
    I traded my Pimpy Chrome HK P7 for it, and came out with a 100.00 credit coming my way. (whispering) I was into the P7 for 500.00 total, and the Colt was selling for 650.00 with all the stuff. Pretty good score I got, not to mention two other guys were there when I was picking up the gun, as they wanted it also. take a look and see what you think

    Thumbs up Really Super Nice CLASS3

    CLASS3 ~ You done went & did it again!
    You did mightly well for yourself.
    Meanwhile....That is in really nice condition. It all looks pretty minty & a bit better than 95%
    So...if she shoots as good as she looks then you are set with about the near perfect carry pistol. Shoot it in good health my man & stay safe!
    Give us a range report & let us know how those bullets are smacking on the target.

    Nice looking Colt and sounds like you made a hell of a deal on it. Looking forward to hearing how it shoots.

    I got it from that big dealer in Maine <kittery> where they have all those custom guns..they called it 90% finish on the gun, but QK and I kinda feel it's more like 97%.I took it apart tonight, and it was real clean.....who ever did the work did it top shelf.....

    Very nice Colt! Keep the wood stocks on it, they look so much nicer than those cheesy rubber ones.

    Great find! Congratulations.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
