A Sunday Go To Meetin' Commander

There are bar-b-que guns, crab boil guns, and then, there are Sunday go to meeting guns. Click to enlargeThis is a Colt that became the later. When I purchased this stainless Commander, I had little idea what was in store.

I polished the sandblasted rounds down to a more even satin finish after they started getting scuffed up. I went through several sets of grips, before I settled on the present ones, purchased off ebay. My Commander now sports a Dlask trigger, and an Ed Brown memory groove grip safety. I also installed a Wilson Combat barrel bushing, an Ed Brown 20LPI checkered mainspring housing, an 18 pound Wolff mainspring, Novak rear sights, a King's extended thumb safety, and an Ed Brown extended magazine release.

It's a pistol I'm proud to take to church on Easter Sunday. It shoots good too!

I love my 70 series all steel Combat Commander. It's still all stock but shoots every time I pull the trigger.

Was it challenging to install the Novak?

When doing so, if you need to take off metal, do you take off of the slide dovetail, or the sight?

I love my commander, too.

It isn't as purty as yours, though.

You are blessed. The Texas CHL does not have a provision for concealed carry in places of worship. :-(

If you are using 230 Ball ammo ,goto a 16# spring and a shok buff it will shoot easier and not beat-up that nice frame.
