I used to have a Lightweight Colt Commander .45 with hardly any finish. I hated myself for selling it. I have $300 in my 1905 Colt Officer's Model .38 Special and a guy has a REALLY carried a lot 1973 Commander .45. He would take my .38 Special and $200 in trade. Pending inspection for alloy cracks and everything else, would this be OK, about even, or really bleepin' stupid on my part to trade. I already tried to sell the O.M. here once for $450 with no bites then decided to keep it.Thanks ahead of time, everyone. And that rear sight would have to go! If I keep the O.M. I'll sit on it and see how values increase on these old ones.

I told the guy I'd meet him to check out the Commander, and he can get a close look at the O.M. No response yet, but if the Commander is mechanically sound I'll go for it. I had the O.M. on a local site with lots of traffic for $450 or $475, can't remember, and no one was interested. Both guns are not encountered in any condition in Ca. as far as I've seen. Thanks, everyone. A couple holster sales will pay the difference. Sometimes a well used gun is mechanically flawless like this favorite below. As you can see I'm trying to blow smoke up my own.......a little here to justify the trade, but we'll see when I see it and take it from there.
