You need to take it to a qulified Smith who will assess what needs to be done by looking at it, give you a price and then do the work if it's practical.alexjam said:Hello, this is my first post...I have a 1954(I called Colt) vintage Commander that is in extremely bad shape cosmetically and functionally too. The gun was left in a leather holster and was submerged in water and left to rot(NOT BY ME!). I want to restore this gun to its original condition with functional upgrades. I really need suggestions and places to get parts. Colt told me they wouldn't even work on it because it is so old. What do I do? Thanks. James.
