I need some good pictures of an XS Commander, a shot of the top of the slide showing that it is 'NOT' a flat top so that I can win a bet with a friend. He used to own one and swears that it was a flat top, I told him that no Commanders were flat tops eccept 'maybe' the Gold Cup Commanders that they made for a few years. Thanks in advance!

Uh,

My series 80 Mark IV stainless 38 super is on the desk in front of me.

It is a Commander model and it has a flat top rib.

Hope you didn't wager the farm.

Hello..
You've won the bet. The following is from Colt's production specs for Model O4012XS Combat Commander: "ROUND TOP SLIDE W/ANGLED SERRATIONS AT FRONT AND REAR OF SLIDE W/NEW ROLL MARKINGS ON BOTH SIDES OF SLIDE."

Regards,
Sam

thanks all, I may have been wrong on just the Gold Cup having a flat top, but I was right on the XS series not being flat. Thanks all, and a special thanks to you SCF!!

Yes, the XS is a Round Top, but the Enhanced versions did, in fact, have flattops.
