Default Yours is a most excellent find!

A fellow infantry commander was short equipment at his change of command-so I made up his shortages and in turn had to round up stuff for my property book. A couple of weeks later he walked up and gave me a Commander NIB! I told him I couldn't take it-but he said that his X had bought it for him and he didn't want it. 30 years ago to the month. TRIJICON sights, super trigger, large thumb safety-Puts them exactly where you point.

Only driven on Saturdays in 15 yard increments...

Giz, who built that one? Interesting shape to the slide, irrespective of the porting and bull barrel.

haggis,

Shuemann Barrel into a Series 80 Style slide by Caspian. The JP sight is melted into the rear of the slide. Lots of other Mods on this one...
