  2. Of all of your work I've seen, this is my favorite. I really like the combination of ball cuts, HP cuts, and raked recoil spring cap and front sight leading edge.

    Just beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing.

    You wouldn't think something in all matte black could be so beautiful.

    I really like that Commander. How did you make it black? Did you do that beauty for a customer or is it for sale?
