I recently picked up a Commando Special. It is cosmetically a little rough but otherwise good. I am thinking of sending it off for some work. Probably to Cylinder and Slide. Are there any other gunsmiths out there you would recommend?
Thanks

Do you mean the WWII Commando, or the 1980's dull finish Detective Special sold as the Commando?

I recommend the Colt factory for the fastest delivery and price.

A very close second is:
Pittsburgh Handgun Headquarters
1330 Center Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15229
(412) 766-6100


If you want the gun customized, can wait a long time, and can handle the high price, Cylinder & Slide is very good.

For straight repairs and refinishing go with Colt or Pittsburgh.

As above, if you want custom alterations go with C&S.

For repairs and refinishing, Colt or Pittsburgh will be a LOT faster and cheaper.
