At TFB we’re devoted to finding the best and most interesting firearms-related photos together with a short story. You’ll find them here, every day. Today we’re looking at an interesting build of a Colt 733 Commando.
Let’s start with a quote from the movie HEAT.
We want to hurt no one. We’re here for the bank’s money, not your money. Your money is insured by the federal government, you’re not gonna lose a dime. Think of your families, don’t risk your life. Don’t try and be a hero
The details of the build are as follows:
