    I want to replace my FLGR with milspec guide and plug and would like to know if the same length guide is used in Commander as Gov't?

    Guide & Plug

    Nope...Commander guide and plug are shorter than they are in 5-inch guns.

    You can shorten a Government Model recoil spring plug to Commander length and it will work fine. However you need to find a Commander length recoil spring guide.

    I believe you can find the parts you want at:

    www.brownells.com (they have new Colt parts).

    www.e-gunparts.com. (these may be used or new depending on what you specify.)

    And of course check things out at the gun show this weekend.
