I picked this up last week and have carried and shot (approx. 300 rounds) it since then. I have very favorable impressions of this pistol for many reasons. First and foremost, it is at a much lower price point than most of my other 1911's. That being said, I do not believe, at least in the case of the CCO, that less money equal lower quality. These pistols are a well thought out, quality build that is specifically designed for carry. I have read about the CCO for a couple years, and most of the reviews have been very positive.....Now I understand why. I am not sure it gets any better than this for a sub $1,500 1911 for a primary carry pistol. There are many quality builds out there, but the CCO has to rank up toward the top, in my opinion. Here are some pictures with a set of VZ Slimline Operators and a Harrison Extreme Trigger (does that make it a Harrison Custom?? I have a set of thin Snakewood grips on order from Sarge that are really going to make this pistol pop!! ....and who says Ionbond DLC is just for pistols???
