    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.

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