    As Ed Brown describes it, the Executive Commander is essentially the commander version of the full-size Executive Elite pistol. The barrel of the Commander is 4.25″ as opposed to the Government size 5″ barrel of the Executive Elite. The front strap and mainspring housing feature a 25 LPI (lines per inch) checkering.

    As in the case of other Carry series of Ed Brown pistols, this one also has their snakeskin pattern instead of checkering. Here is how the company describes it:

    Unique with the Carry series pistols is the innovative snakeskin treatment. It is a directional pattern, meaning it is smooth to slide your hand up, but bites in for a snug grip the other way where you need it. It’s easier on the hands than checkering, and those who handle it can’t stop bragging about it. Not to mention it just looks cool!
