I am considering building, or having someone build my next 1911 pistol. I really like the CCO (officer's frame with a commander slide) style of pistol for carry use. I am committed to it being either 9mm or most likely 38 super for the caliber. I am also wanting it to be as light as possible. I am particularly interested in finish suggestions, I prefer black, but would like something that provides excellent corrosion resistance and some level of lubricity if possible. Here is what I have so far, what are your suggestions or ideas. Lew's CCO Pistol Caliber: 38 Super or 9mm or both Frame: Light weight Officer 30 LPI checkering front strap (or ???) Magwell High relief under trigger guard Short solid trigger Carry melt Slide: Match grade barrel Novak low profile adjustable black rear Tritium front (dovetail) Commander (4 or 4.25) Rear grip serration only Carry melt Bushing and standard guide rod Finish: Low or medium gloss black with lubricating properties Wanna kill these ads?
