Moore Battleship Commander

I built this pistol in November of 2004. The base pistol was a used Colt Commander I found at the local pawn shop. The frame to slide fit was superb and I knew for $400.00 it would make a perfect project pistol. To kick the project off I hand fit the barrel, safety, beaver tail grip safety and trigger. I replaced the Colt ignition system with a Cylinder & Slide (C&S) ultra match ignition system and replaced the Series 80 trigger safety system with a C&S Series 80 trigger pull reduction system, this system leaves the Series 80 trigger safety intact but reduces the friction felt at the trigger. Trigger pull is approximately 3.5 pounds and the accuracy is superb. Most of the parts used were manufactured by Wilson Combat, Cylinder & Slide, and Yost-Bonitz Custom Pistols. See the parts list below, in my opinion these manufactures represent some of the finest pistol component manufactures to be found.
