Michiguns 45 Commander Custom

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Michiguns pistol was in a class by itself. Costing twice the price of the CQB, it was the most customized handgun of the bunch, the most subtle, and the most endearing. in short, we loved it. We honestly think it was underpriced. It redefined the term “custom pistol” for us, and put all our personal 45s into a dark corner by comparison.

The front and rear straps have these individually machined conical gripping surfaces called Conamyds, and a smaller version adorns the bottom of the thinned trigger guard. We’ve rarely seen machining this good on anything.
Perhaps the toughest bit of machining was to form a rib onto the curved top of the commander’s slide. There is a cut on each side, beginning just in front of the rear sight, extending forward. There is a flat on top, with cuts that don’t go all the way across, but instead form a cross-hatched area up the middle of the slide. there are no machining marks evident anywhere.
The owner wanted this sight picture until he tried it, and hated it just like we did.
We found a major problem with the rear sight in that it was razor-sharp. The customer specified this type sight, which he ended up not liking. It’s easy to cycle the slide with one hand, using a sight of this type to catch on any suitable surface.
