    I picked up a new toy from a guy in Missouri, it's a metro arms commander. The sweet part is it has about $300 dollars worth of custom work done by a gun smith with receipts. It has a bobtail main spring housing installed, checkering on the front strap, trigger pull reduction, 70% of the beavertail desensitized, ed brown barrel and bushing installed with all the original parts as well. The guy I got it from is a competition shooter who actually won the state title one year. Anyway here's the gun.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    So the original owner added $300 of work to a $500 gun?

    Looks great, though. :)

    Peace favor your sword,

    He only wanted $675 I thought that was pretty reasonable.

    Yeah but it also came with another $250 worth of spare parts.

    In my opinion Metro Arms 1911's are among the best value on the market in a 1911. I have a Metro Arms Trophy and the quality and accuracy is right up there with my Colt Gold Cup and Springfield Loaded 1911's.

    I love it, it's got so much custom work and after market parts, I just added a ambi safety and new grip screws and bushings. New grips are probably on the list as well. I really want the VZ Frags.[​IMG][​IMG]
