Very nice!! I'll probably be sending Dave a colt 70 series commander I recently acquired for a little work when funds are available.

Never say "What else could go wrong?"
Because it usually will.

That's a great looking gun, especially the grips. I still don't know whether or not I like the "bobbed" look or not. That aside, I think it's a winner. Here's hoping that it shoots as good as it looks!

Zowies! That is one pretty gun. And you are actually going to carry it? How much did all those mods cost?

For carry I have a plane jane Commander I bought new at the end of 2007. The only thing I changed out were the nice wood grips that came on it for some tough and cheap grips from Midway because carry guns get dinged and the grips seem to get the worst of it. It is still 100% at over 4K rounds.

For show and tell and shooting every now and again I picked up a Gold Cup Commander lightly shot in the box. The only change I made was again the grips. This time for some of Sarges Redwood Burl grips.

Very nice looking.

I'm with you on the carry part. There's no way I'd spend that kind of money to mod a gun and then not carry it. What's the point right?
