    Had it done at Nagles gun Shop in San Antonio. The guy did a "Good" job... i wouldn't say great but im happy with the results. I think he could have made the mainspring housing cut match with the frame but i was looking at some ed browns and night hawks in the cases and several looked just like this.

    He did a great job blending the grips though since they are #'s matching to the frame i wanted him to do it.

    Overall im happy... $150 for the work and 40bux for the new scaled MSH. Its super comfortable and i can't wait to shoot it Wednesday :thumbs:

    Id say my only gripe about the whole deal was how they handled communications with me. I dropped this one and my Springfield Stainless Loaded (to be refinished) off and they gave me a quote and said "This is very loose... we'll contact you as we move along... 2 weeks for the Bobtail and 3 weeks for the refinishing"..

    I never heard from them... I had to call and check on it, make sure i in no way left them a blank check... And even dropping it off and picking it up I really got the cold shoulder... Like I wasn't "Cool" enough or something... It was a strange feeling really... maybe because im 27 and not 57? (no offense)... OH well... they did a good job, but i'll think twice before dropping off another gun. The overall experience was slightly above average.. and slightly above because they did a good job on both of them for some very VERY fair prices :banger:

    The DW looks great. But I agree with your general point of view. If you can't treat me like a valued customer, than adios. And that means me and my hard earned money. The older I get, the more obnoxious I get with poor service. Thanks for your post.

    Nice gun, but I am suprised to read that you dropped 2 guns off with a company that you haven't used before. Did you get a better package price for 2 or do you know someone who used them? Just curious. Looks real good.

    My Father-in-law loves Nagles, spoke highly of them, my wife and I don't care for them much. Definately not very customer oriented IMO, work looks nice though

    Looks good. I've been thinking of bobbing a commander. Now I'm thinking about it even more.

    I tell ya... ESPECIALLY if you have larger hands, its SO comfortable. Im 6'3" 250 with matching hands and the lower part of my palm hangs off my 1911's and i get the sharp point dug in as i grip/shoot... the Bobtail is amazing!

    I think it also looks good. IMO its a great affordable mod :happy0001:
