    My commander 9mnm with a few differences

    Here is a pic of my commander 9mm, I got it used and here are a few differences,
    I put different grips and a cylinder and slide sear & hammer.
    Dropped right in, I really like them, where they needed I doubt it but, I like the look and feel.
    It came with the shortened ejector, (some one cut the stock on off) not sure why.
    I had to replace the Recoil spring, (13lb wolf) works great, t the one in it was sacked out.
    Not sure why its all scuffed up under the slide stop but it doesn't bother me at all.
    And it has a longer sear/disconnector pin to fit a ambi safety which isn't in it???
    Oh and a flat trigger I had laying around, not sure I like it, but it works.

    Update: I seem to be having a few issues with the slide locking to the rear with Wilson EMT mags
    I tried a few different slide stops the problem got worse. Tripp Research seem to be the only mags that work 100%

    Those grips look good on your Commander.

    At least the scratches are hidden when the slide stop is installed. A little dab of Birchwood Casey Gun Blue on those scratches will make it look almost new.

    Thanks,
    They work well, and have the magwell built into the bottom. I'm not to worried about the scratches, but I have some gun blue, I try it out tonight.

    Had some issues with my rounds not feeding in the chamber, so I polished/rounded the edge just a bit where the bullet feeds int to chamber, I wonder if other barrels are rounded slightly here.

    I have those same scratches on both my Trophy and Amigo, which are also both hard chromed. I took the safeties and slide locks out and polished down the backsides with sandpaper to avoid any new scratches. I recommend Brownells OxphoBlue to touch them up quick and easy. The barrel you have pictured doesnt looks like anything that I've seen come in the AC's, they are usually fully throated (cut back and ramped in) about 3/4 of the way around the chamber mouth.

    EDIT: Ok I see youve got a 9mm (majorly jealous!!!!) so thats why its different than what I've seen. You can take it to a gunsmith to have it properly throated or do a lot of study on the subject and break those sharp edges with a sanding drum followed by polishing mirror smooth with a felt bob on a dremel. Just be sure to only break and polish the edge so you maintain full chamber support.
