And a friend decided to sell his Wilson CQB Elite, so it goes to work w/ me tomorrow, after range time today.

Oh, and all my duty guns are in God's Caliber (.45ACP)

I have been carrying a stainless Springfield TRP for about 2 1/2 years now and am very happy with it. I use it both on and off duty as it shoots great for me, matter of fact, all my other guns, save for my back-up Ruger LCR and occasionally a Glock 36, have been put in the safe and haven't been used in forever.

Glocks are issued at work. Off duty, I carry a pre series 80 Combat Commander in 45 acp. I normally load with 230 grain Winchester Ranger T.

Thanks,
Joe

Just letting y'all know its still around...

Finish is rough because of holster wear but still going strong. Carried on and off since 2009ish. Current status is on duty (desk driving )



Ref the mag next to the pistol..... its for right hand mag changes when I am shooting with my left.

HI GUYS..
NEW here and long retired. Getting old sucks.. but it beats the alternative.

To some, what I did for my belt duty gun was a travesty, to me it was the PERFECT duty gun, a thing of beauty and what worked.

Took a slightly used Series 70 Gold Cup.

Took the hook off the front sight, making it a forward ramp,

drilled a hole through the rear sight and tapped a hole into the slide allowing for another screw to hold the sight in place to relieve the roll pin. I made shims so that the sight then could be screwed down tight and the shims provided the proper elevation to the sight.

Replaced the stock hammer with a Commander hammer

Replaced all the springs with heavy Wolff springs

Added a beaver-tail safety

Added extended slide release

Added a wide extended safety

Took a hammer and steel punch and beat the stuffings out of the front of the trigger guard and front of the grip stippling it to where if you gripped it too tightly you looked like you grabbed onto a porcupine(this really made the purists cry)

opened the grip base by beveling it making it easier easier to accept magazines.

Replaced the stock grips with sharp checkered walnut grips.

Replaced the stock trigger with a wide smooth trigger without a stop.

I spent over 5 years working undercover and the two guns I carried during that time were my Very tired looking but flawless functioning Colt Commander LW The other was a Star PD. (amazing little guns)
Simply put neither looked like a "COP'S GUN" but gave that warm fuzzy feeling.

EDIT
On the Gold Cup... forgot to add, replaced the mainspring housing with a flat checkered MSH.
