    The one I can remember seemed to stem from not living the gun properly

    This may be the result of 'auto correct' out thinking the typist.
    My guess is he was trying to say, "...not loading the gun properly."
    Political correctness is a national suicide pact.

    only to God and my own conscience.

    My fault, I didn't proofread like I normally do. It stemmed from not LUBING the gun properly. The slide locked up.

    BD... hmmm. Bought 2# of BD awhile back searching for a 357 cast load, but went with BE86 instead. Still got most of those 2 cans kicking around looking for a use. Going to have to give that a try.

    I've never run across an alloy framed Commander sized 1911. I've had a couple of builders tell me that it's a non-started and they won't do it. I have a Dan Wesson CBOB and it's a great pistol. Commander sized, bobbed and shoots like a laser.
    Semper Fi!


    Currently casting for .223, .308, .30-06, .30-40 Krag, 9mm, .38/.357, 10mm, 44 Mag and 45 ACP.

    I like strange looking boolits!

    The original Colt Commander was an alloy framed gun. Lots of others have built them as well including Ruger. Maybe you meant no 10mm alloy commanders, which I don't remember seeing either.

    The Colt Commander Models with aluminum alloy frames are often called "Lightweight Commanders"; the steel-framed Commander variants are called "Combat Commanders". I have seen about 3 steel-framed Commanders to every alloy-framed example I've encountered. I rather like the Commander concept, and so do a lot of other makers--SIG-Sauer, Glock, and CZ use the pattern for their full-size service models, as has Browning with its High Power.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.

    160 rounds of factory ammo only so far...100% reliable. FBI and full power loads in two outings. I stripped it down and removed factory lube and cleaned before first firing. No issues...none. Trying first reloads later this week. 180gr FMJ and 200gr WFNGC hardcast both over Blue Dot. We'll see how it goes. Fine, serious handgun, sweet price at $721 shipped + FFL.

    Yep. Think I want a lightweight 10mm Commander, though it may never exist. Something in .38 Super would work too... Just dreaming.

    Ruger makes a nice 1911....a friend has one just like this in .45 and all it needed was a trigger job to make it perfect.

    I have the same gun in a Kimber..Stainless Target II. What I discovered was that it was easily convertible to other calibers, like .40 S&W and .357 SIG that share the same head size. But in doing some more research found that Kimber uses the same breachface cut for both their .38 Super/9mm as the 10mm...so I got a .38 Super barrel and it runs perfectly...as does a 9mm. And 9x23 Winchester and 9mm Largo also run out of the Super barrel...just change the springs...

    Was wondering with the Ruger...is the firingpin stop the standard beveled or is it flat bottomed... I've replaced the ones in my guns with flat bottom and it makes a difference...

    ...well these posts about a 10mm Commander made me just go out and do it. I have several Commanders all in .38 Super...one of them is about to become a 10mm... Went over to ebay and found a brand new slide complete with LPA adjustable sights for $180 and a Fusion barrel-link-pin for $149. Just have to get a barrel bushing, flat bottom firingpin stop, extractor and firing pin.
