Lol nice mods. Have not had a chance to mess with mines yet being less than a week old. But mine will have second amendment wood grips with "America, F**k Yeah" engraved right side of slide & mirror finnish polish on sides of frame & slide. Gotta love it.

shoot, mine wasn't even a day old and 100 rounds through it!

those Commanders are hard chrome, you might find trying to polish them to a mirror finish hard to do. try toning it down instead. i spent about 4-6 hours on just the slide and frame to get mine where it is. i still might try toning it down some more in the future.

I don't think mines has 100 yet lol maybe 70-80 & mostly reloads. The trigger pull is sweet though. I'm used to Glock but always wanted a 1911. Still getting used to it but it dumps shell casings right in my face. Only thing I don't like about it.

Is that a DIY job or something for a gunsmith?
