    Did I do that right? :cool:

    This is only number 10 for me, and no I'm not chasing anyone's record! :supergrin: I picked it up this morning, threw some black Micarta grips on it, and ran a few mags of FMJ and JHPs thru it without a bobble and with very good accuracy. The trigger-pull is crisp and clean (I figure that's due to the superior combination of holes and curved front surface! :whistling: )

    I already like it enough that I'm ordering a set of trijicons and I may have to send it back for a front-strap treatment, but not sure if I just want serrations or full-on checkering.

    My (new to me) Colt (Enhanced) Combat Commander

    That is a sweet looking Colt! I would definitely put some 25 or 30 LPI checkering on it.

    Colt Custom shop is about $150 for checkering, $65 for Gold-Cup style serrations. I like checkering, and for only $85 more, will likely go that route.

    Nope, I have a 2010 price list from Colt, but haven't seen on from SA.

    Quack may not share, after my trigger comments! :whistling:
