Commanche's are built on the "wrong" frame for commanders. Les uses a full size frame with a Commander slide. This causes the breach face to only go back far enough to clear the disconnector which...

I'm not really against doing that one. Maybe next year or even mid year if there's enough requests. The magazines are readily available so it would be an easy nut to crack.

As a follow up to that, buy a Wilson and then call and give them the same story. I guarantee that they will tell you that their guns are only guaranteed to work with their mags.

I'm gonna throw a bomb here. I'm a fan of the ACT/Mec Gar/Novak mags. They're beautifully finished and the steel followers are a plus.

Wilson makes some good mags. When I say "some", I mean only a...

And...the funnest part was that I got Covid at SHOT Show. Didn't know what it was at the time but I had a 101 degree fever for several days. Probably sick for 10 days in total. Good times.

25-28 pound mainsprings are the answer in 10mm. Heavier recoil springs will make little difference if you are trying to run a standard profile firing pin stop and maybe a 20 pound mainspring. You...

Consider your experience empirical evidence contradicting the voracity of the seller's claims as to the functionality of their product.

It comes up all the time because 10mm is a "fad" round. It comes in to style and then goes out. Right now it's in style because ammo is available. Seems silly to buy a $3k gun just because ammo...

10mm was not intended to be used in the 1911 platform. It's essentially a double charged 45 round in terms of muzzle energy. It doesn't bode well for the longevity of frames and slides.

I thing I may have stated that it was 45 only but since then, they have twisted my arm into making the Prodigy in 9mm too.

The brass on WWB can also be too long. Chamber depth is a concern. To consistently run WWB, I have found chamber depth needs to be in the middle of the Go and No Go gauges on 45.

Put a slight bend in the center of the pin. Ejector looseness may not be improved but at least the pin will be tighter. Where's the pin gonna go when the slide is on the gun? :)

I would like to do a consecutive set for someone. That would be very cool for sure.
