    My New Commander

    I'm more than likely going to take this one apart and change the trigger and add an ambi safety but other than that it sure is a pretty nice shooter.

    I put those Grey laminated grips on today..Not sure if I'll keep them on or change to something else yet but I think it looks pretty nice and it does group great.


    Yeah - I know - I don't take good pics..I hope to improve in that area at some point

    Beautiful Colt. I have one just like it except my grips are the rather mundane checkered, not near a pretty as those you have on your gun. Where did you get those grips?

    All I can say is

    I like the look of the grips, and if they feel great I would leave 'em. Very nice gun you've got there.

    Thanks!

    Most the grips I use I've made but those I got off a guy I met looking through eBay but has a website http://www.gungripguys.com/1911/Index.htm
    They make some real nice grips and price them to sell

    There's an old guy that has an eBay store that has some pretty nice ones. He hand makes out of some really nice woods. I've got a few from him but I've had to check back often to catch the real hard to find woods.
    his store addy is

    Well, I finally got it out and got it a little dirty. It did it's part as well as it should. Sadly I didn't keep up with my part as well as I thought I should. Here's a snap.
