    Well here she is, my commander length S&W 1911PD. I got her bobtailed and I am absolutely amazed at how nice she is to carry. I really wondered how much difference this would make. The holster is an Andrew's MacDaniel with the sweat shield...the best, most comfortable IWB holster I've ever owned, which has been a few. I made the grips out of Afziela wood...the pics aren't even close to how beautiful these grips really look. I also added stainless safety and slide release. She shoots as beautifully as she looks.

    I had a polymer Main Spring Housing on my S&W 1911 - Arched and it had
    20 LPI checkering that dug into the palm of my hand. I went
    shopping at Brownells - they offer 10 or more of various types
    by several manufactueres. I got the Les Baer Custom
    stainless steel ( to match my SW1911 ) flat with vertical
    serrations MSH I think it was just under $40. I gave the gun to
    my gunsmith and he suggested a Titanium MS Cap as well as
    hammer strut. The MS Cup fits onto the top of the MS and
    is connected to the Hammer strut.... they're both moving
    parts so lighter = quicker ignition time at least that's the idea.
    He fitted it as well as polishing the inside of the tube in which
    the MS resides and moves, for $20 fitting and about
    $12 for the Ti parts it didn't require me wearing safety glasses
    or hunting for carpet soluble parts/springs. It looks great
    it isn't exactly flush the serrations stick out a bit but an
    equal amount from top to bottom Feels great in the grip
    and firing the gun.
