You are correct, it can use full size magazines because of the mag well. Go to Colt's website and look at the Combat Unit CCO. It's like that only with a Chen mag well. Full size grip panels will not fit.Yeah, im pretty sure ot is a government frame. The way the stan chen magwell works is that you chop the frame and weld in place. From the one I saw at Shot show 2 years was definitely a true commander size. Uses full size gov mags. Not officer size mags you can also measure from frip screw to grip screw.
The fit and finish are actually fantastic. No rattle in the grip safety, slide, or trigger. Fairly tight slide to frame fit though not overly so. It is typical of the recent models coming out of the Custom Shop. I have one each of the Custom Competition and the Custom Carry Limited and they are both very nicely built. My recently produced Custom Shop Commander Elite is the same way. I actually care far more about proper function, but these guns look great and the quality is apparent.Hi Mark,
How is the fit and finish? Do they have the standard Colt play and audible rattle from the both trigger and grip safety?
Thanks for your input.
Okay here's a crappy one for now. I will try to post some better pictures at some point. The actual finish is darker than it appears in this picture. To be honest this pic simply doesn't do the pistol justice but I don't have time to do a better one right now.Come on sir. Don't do this to us show us some pictures. I would love to see what the actual gun looks like.
Thanks to you and Coquio for providing that extra information about the mag well, it is good to know. Stan Chen offers grip panels on his website but unfortunately the ones I like are not in stock.Shall I explain:
Stan’s magwell utilizes a government size frame but cuts about 1/4” off the bottom of the frame. Stans magwell then slides on. The integral MSH uses a officers size spring setup.
The grips are fullsize grips that are cut down and relieved on the backside for the tab
