I am the second owner of a CLW manufactured in 1972, that I purchased in 1978. After I purchased the gun, I sent it to Colorado for some customization "Chuck Taylor Commando Special" by the late Ikey Starks.

Is there any collectible value in the gun?

It is Worthless, without pictures.lol From my short time on this site, I have the impression that it is more of a purest site. You will find great info here, but you might also try 1911forum.com

Since that is my birth year and I collect Colt's from that date I think you should send it to me for evaluation

There's ALWAYS value in any quality Colt. A Lightweight Commander is no exception. Collectibility often comes from the collector who wants a particular gun.

If you are wanting to sell this specific piece, get to the minimum of 15 posts and place a WTS (Want To Sell) ad in our classifieds. Be sure to fully describe the gun and take clear and sharp photos. :cool:

Do you have any of the pistolsmithing papers for it? Can you list what was done?
