Today I became the proud owner of a bone stock 1991a1 Colt Commander. I ran about 250 rounds of ball through it and about 100 of Hollow points without a single jam....All I want to do to it is the following:

1)trigger job (smoother not lighter)

2)tactical thumb safety

3)nite sights (heinies or wilsons)

4)checkering or scalloping (optional depending on length of time needed)

I basically want to turn this pistol into a nice carry piece. I am 90% happy with it. I dont want to wait 3 years that the master pistolsmiths have as backlogs....Any reccomendations?

If you go with scalloping, that will limit that part of the job to one of two sources...Richard Heinie or Dane Burns. Both offer this service with a quick turnaround and either would be able to do the other work you want (although in what timeframe I cannot say).

If you elect to go with checkering, then your options increase. EGW (George Smith & team) does exceptional work with a reasonable turnaround. You might also try Don Williams. SDM builds a tidy pistol too. Don't forget Novaks either (though I doubt if they would install a Heinie sight). Kurt Wickmann would be a good choice too. Of course, we can't forget Chuck Rogers.

There are many others. If I didn't mention them it doesn't mean anything other than they didn't come to mind.

Just IMHO Burn`s basic" Reliabilty Package" , as well as his "Fed Package" ( what you are looking for) are the best deals available right now, although I don`t know what his turnaround time is either nowadays....
