We figure you already know about these or you wouldn't be looking at this listing.... BUT... just in case you wandered in the side door... "Commando" is not at all the same as "Commander" in the world of Colt handguns. During World War II, Colt (who was competing intensely with S&W, but that's another story) got a contract to provide trustworthy revolvers in the powerful, accurate caliber of .38 Special to the Security personnel protecting government buildings, shipyards, and defense plant installations against sabotage (as well as common theft). Colt, famous for being finicky and aiming for only the very best, used their highly revered Official Police model (already in use by the FBI, Treasury, Coast Guard and the Police Depts of major cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles)... and they dealt with time constraints and cost over-runs by eliminating any polishing operations not needed for smooth operation itself. The Military favored non-reflective Parkerizing anyway, and they used smooth-face triggers and instead of finely checkered wood grips they went to early molded plastic ones (called 'Coltwood'). This Military version of the OP, still built of good carbon steel, became the Colt 'Commando'. A very collectible piece.
