Years ago I set up two commander frames, one steel and one alloy, to run with any of three different top ends: 9mm, 38 super, or 45 acp.

I found that the 45 acp commander top end would work on a government size frame. Now I wonder what would it take to make any of the above commander top ends work on the government frame.

Also, has anyone had any experience setting up multiple caliber top end to run on a single government frame.

If you have any stories to share, please post.

Thanks,

Out West

I was lucky and found an engraved 80 series Commander top end in 38 Super, complete..
Matched it up to a lightweight 80 45acp Commander frame, only change I had to make was the slide stop, and magazines of course.
Frame is being Cobra Coated by Tripp Reasearch in gloss black, with Cobra Chrome small parts, should look pretty slick with the engraved nickle top on it.......I`ll let you know how well it works..
