Ya, I typo'd in my first post. You are correct.RogerC, I can't clearly make out the serial number on your pistol but it appears to be a 4 digit number followed by-LW. If that is right your pistol is a late 1950 or 1951 piece. 1951 started with 6000-LW. That is a beaut! Nick
up until 1970 all commanders were alloy framed lightweights. the slides were always steel.So...were all of the 'Commanders' an Alloy frame or slide or something? To be 'Lightweight'?
Were any of them all Steel?
