The bull barrel in my post #3 is 4.125", or 1/8" shorter than the "standard" Commander barrel with bushing.

The inside of the slide is slotted for a bushing.

The PM-C is one I have been looking at, along with the Valkyrie. Lots of nice choices from Dan Wesson.

If it matters, the TCP has a 4" barrel, not the usual 4.25" of the "standard" Commander.
