Where are your grip safety and thumb safety from, Z? Nice combination!
(Your custom-modified grips still work - I'm actually using the 'fixed' bone one. The 'scar' makes my Commander (original CLW) look mean.

i got that Colt stubby thumb safety from Brownells sometime ago, grip safety is a drop in Wilson commander GS and hammer is a recent Colt commander swap.
Medium trigger is aluminum together with Kimber barrel/Berryhill NM bushing(hand fitted)....runs like a wet dream.


btw...could you post a pic of your bone commander?

another look with ambi safety..

How exactly? Other than it being a 1911, there's not a single feature on that Kimber that's reminiscent of a WW2 1911. Nice gun though.

I'm guessing he was referring to the setting and sepia look. Looks old school. If you put a WWII Colt in the Kimber's place it would actually fit in better.

They are. I just picked up a DW CCO yesterday, looks like I may need another set.

Actually this DW may be the only 1911 I own that I leave extactly as it was out of the box. I really like this piece. I've already taken it to the range twice in two days & have ~300 rds. through it.

Just the ww2 ammo I suppose reminded me.

A little history mixed with some new school!
