    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!!

  2. That's a nice ranking, considering the rest of the 1911s that have or had in your collection.

    I really like my DW CCO. And I really think that DW put out some really nice 1911s for their price point. Honestly, I think they were undervalue for what they were charging. And currently, their price points reflects the market.

    I would eventually like to add a Valor to my collection.

    In all fairness, I have not even messed with the Stinger yet, other than to shoot it a little. That is next on the agenda.

    OK, I just added another 1911 to the got to have list. That's sweet just as is. Love the black short sold trigger and the grips too. Very sharp. And not a bad price either. :thumbsup:

    I made it to the range yesterday with my CCO. I REALLY like it. I almost didn't buy it because I was going to get out if 45s. Now I still may sell my others , but the CCO is staying !!
