    Late to the party, but a nice start to the new year to hear about it today. And Colt has it on their website. They still don't have the GCNM in 38 Super there. I will probably buy one in 6 inch...

    Introduced in 1983 and still in use on many models. The Colt/Talo Clapp Commanders do not have the Series 80 mechanical firing pin safety. Mine do have a Titanium firing pin however.
