Yes I prefer military guns, but a nice pre-war commercial is too nice to pass up. Besides, it's getting where I have too many militaries. The only military 'A1 I still have left to find (from what's in my price range) is a really nice '42 or earlier Colt. I think I can pretty much forget about a Singer.Originally posted by Redzone:
The reason people give them up is they are'nt a collector of Commercials or Military 1911s. I know dsk is more military 1911A1 oriented. So I am confused as to his choice of this weapon. It is'nt particularly rare but, valuable because of its exceptional condition. dsk you are the tops man.

Seriously, you seem to be more of an expert on commercials than I. This unit has sights I've never seen before. The front sight has a standard half-moon side profile, but it is .125" wide. The rear has a .125" square notch to match. I can see somebody filing the rear notch, but I have never seen a half-moon sight that is so wide. Care to elaborate?
