    I have a question, I am new to 1911's so please be kind! :wavey:
    I bought a new Sig Sauer 1911 C3. Sig call's it a "compact". Would it be considered an Officer size? Commander? Neither? I am assuming that it would take compact 7 round mags right? I have thought about picking up some mags other than those from Sig, would Wilson Combat compact mags work?

    Told you I was a 1911 newb...:supergrin:

    Just a few more newbie questions I promise....

    CCO - Concealed Carry Officer right?

    It does take the compact size mags right?

    Is that stock? Doesn't the magwell negate the whole officer grip thing?

    Congratulations, you picked up THE perfect 1911 configuration, IMHO! :supergrin:

    I love the CCO platform, and yours is a beauty.
