    I love my CCO's and when I carry a 1911, it's usually a CCO. :cool:

    Very nice

    Are the two Wilson's the same as CCO's slide and frame-wise?

    They are both 4" slides on officer frames. 1/4" off from being a "true" CCO, by definition, but close enough in my book to be called a CCO. :cool:

    Nighthawk's options are very limited when it comes to the Commander and CCO size guns. And IMPO, I'd take a new Wilson or Guncrafter over a new Nighthawk these days.

    Given my choices, I'd rather carry my Commanders. The CCO is strictly a toy for me because I'm not keen on the shortened grip frame. I can put rounds much faster and repeatedly with the standard grip frame, and the shortened frame isn't that short to make a difference in concealment for me.

    When I read the title of the thread, my first thought was Close Combat Optic. I was a little worried about you.

    ETA: I love the grips on that CCO.

    No, 185gr Critical Defense. In my chrono testing with this gun, that load gives me the most energy of the ammo I have. It handles 230gr just fine too and I'm sure either would do the job just fine :supergrin:

    I guess I am still a bit confused. I used to have a Dan Wesson CBOB. So a CCO is sort of like putting the 4.25 slide on an EMP frame?

    A CCO is a Commander slide on an Officer frame.

    I loves me some CCO.

    I carry mine each and every day, and shoot steel and UPSPA matches with it. I'm closing in on 18k rounds through it and it just keeps running.
