    That is an impressive 1911. It looks like a Cerakote finish, but i'm no expert.

    Ordinarily, I don't like the look of guns that aren't a black or blued finish, but this is just excellent looking.

    It isn't every day that you see a color coat applied in a tasteful manner. Looks good.

    The work, as usual, is awesome, but I can't get enthusiastic about the green. Sorry. I am sure the intended owner loves it though. :)

    Gorgeous. You've definitely steered me back towards a commander for my next purchase!

    Firstly, your pics are phenominal in their clarity.

    Secondly, I've always thought the green 1911's were pretty cool. Regardless of mfr.

    Very nice.

    Excellent workmanship.

    But something about the green, with the de-horning, and the golf-ball dimples makes the whole thing really plastic looking.

    Though I'm sure the client will be very pleased.

    Thanks for the comments guys!
    This one was built to the owner's specs and he did specify green with black trim. I think he does some work in Central America. :rolleyes:
    It is Cerakote over parkerizing.
    The green doesn't do much for me either, Jim.
    The next commander I build is mine! :D

    Once again, your muzzles are the most nicely crowned I've ever seen.


    ETA: That sounded dirty. That's not how I meant it.

    It's green, yes, but it's easier to take if you refer to it as "Army Green". You might even get away with calling it "Olive Drab".

    So being a military color, I guess I could live with it. :scrutiny:

    *sigh*

    1) look at post of awesome pictures of gun as art

    2) start thinking "I would like to start a project like that for an old commander I have"

    3) Click through to artisans website, and once again be terribly disappointed to discover that
    posted 10 months ago.:banghead:

    I've inquired a few times to the Louder Than Words crew to get some work done and they're all backed up with orders past retirement.

    There is opportunity out there for a person with pistolsmith skills.

    I think it's great. Not what I would have built up, but still a great looking piece. Would make for a sweet hunting sidearm. I consider it a kind of OD or Army green.

    I don't know how I feel about the golf-ball style checkering..maybe a new set of grips would help tone it down a bit.
