some of what i have heard is if they have the split collet style barrel busing they were a series 70. honestly i just get more confused the more i find out. some people say they made Commanders, but none were ever a series 70, they were just Commanders.

see, it's confusing!

Default Bushings on Commanders

My nickel Combat Commander did not have the split collet bushing, nor did my Lightweight Commander, however, all the 5 inch Series 70's Government models did.
