Flat top Commander Length Slide?

Hi All! I've been away from this site for a while pursuing other interests, but with the Plague Lockdown dragging on, some of my old ideas have bubbled back up. With your kind forbearance I'd like to ask the following; while I know Colt made a very few Commander length guns with flat top (Gold Cup type) slides, I am wondering whether any of the aftermarket companies still make such slides or whether any were made recently enough to make it possible to find one at a reasonable price?

TIA ~ Froggie

Standard on Guncrafter Industries pistols, but they're gonna cost you! Great 1911's.

I sent my Combat Commander to Nighthawk and had them flat-top the slide with arrow serrations.....you could buy just a slide from them and ask them make whatever cuts on it you want and then fit it to whatever frame you're using....or send them your whole 1911 and they'll flat-top it for you.

For stock commanders, I believe the new Dan Wesson Valor has a flat top but the only ones 4.25" ones I could find had a bobtail.

Caspian will flat top any length slide you want. I think it's only about a $40 option.

The S&W Perf Center Commander size pistols have a sort of flat top or at least my 2014 does.
