very nice. I like :cheers: who did you get to do the work. I plan to have my LTW commander bobbed but will be having to wait until my rifle and my Series 70 that i will be having quite a bit of work done to are finished.

The work was done by EGW in Pennsylvania (Evolution Gun Works). They did a good job, IMHO.

What's a carry comp?


I'm thinking about all kinds of mods, but frankly don't need to invest so much in it that I won't get anyone to pay me what I originally paid for the stock piece.

I know how it feels that is always my biggest concern is that if i ever decide to sell one of my guns that has been customized that the everyday buyer wont recognize the amount of work that has gone into the gun. I think that if you use a well respected gunsmith and keep the correspondence and receipts of the work done then it will help justify an additional cost over a stock gun. However, typically once i decide to go the custom route i move that gun off my available for sale list.

Thanks in advance.
When you look at the pic, think of how your hand would fit on the gun. The part that would fit on the lower part of your palm (the lower half of the rear of the grip) has been cut at an angle on this gun versus the standard cut. This is done with a jig, then a special MSH (main spring housing, the part that goes there) is placed. Compare that to Beladran's pic above, which is not bobbed, and you'll see the difference. Keeps that corner from gigging you in the ribs when you carry. And for me, it just looks cool, too. :D
