All of us have seen some of Ted's master builds but when this modest "retro" build was made available to me it was a must have.
It's either a 52 or 53 Lightweight 39 super Commander that Ted built in 2019, the owner took it home and ran 1 magazine through it and tucked it away. 2 years later with other projects going he asked Ted to find a new owner.
No slide-top treatment, no 40 or 50 LPI checkering, no rear of slide artwork. Just a more refined version of what Colt was producing but with master-grade bluing and everything cleaned up and addressed.
I'm going to daily carry it if I can find some SD 38 super it really likes.
