I have a 1951 LW Commander with no original finish on the frame,... It's my daily winter carry piece... Loaded with the Ruger ARX rounds.. It's a favorite of mine.

This is what a well carried LW looks like....

Trying to post some better pics here.

We will see. Maybe these are a little better. My 1965 CDR-LW serial # 459XX-LW.

Very nice. You gotta love the flats and the way they reflect like mirrors

Yes you can really see it.

In the second picture of mine you can see the branches of the tree hanging over the deck in the reflection. I have the box and papers for it also. Funny that they state barrel length as 4.5 inches on the box. I have a 1959 government model that is the same way insofar as the slide polishing job is concerned. Unfortunately the original Coltwood grips did not survive.

Thats a Beauty! I have 69 GCNM and been thinking of a 70 series lightweight in 9mm. You sure have a sweet one. Enjoy!

I just won this an hour ago. LNIB W/papers 1967 on a Gunbroker penny auction, after my 2 bids I promised I wouldn't look again and get caught in a bidding war, I checked an hour later and was quite surprised. I guess it will get along well with my '69 GCNM
