    Sadly this one isn't available any more. The safety, that is. But if someone really wants one, they can Dremel off the rear end of a current one.

    I say 'current'... actually the 1991 Commander that last had the longer one isn't catalogued any more, either.

    I forgot about the early Colt Commander grip safeties. The profile is very different from that of the GI grip safety, though, and the only place I have ever seen one of the early Commander grip safeties for sale was an ancient vendor at a huge gun show in York, Pennsylvania, at least ten years ago. I tried grinding down a GI grip safety to replicate the Commander style but it didn't come out very well.

    As far as I know, nobody sells that type today.
