Hey all, I have a couple of Colt's that I really love, a NRM Govt in Blue and an XSE Commander in Stainless that I made a few parts changes on. Now that is a sweet pistola for sure, my favorite pistol that I currently own. One other 1911 variation that I have always liked is the CCO version, the Concealed Carry Officer model. They also usually have an alloy frame to reduce carry weight. Colt came out with one a couple years back and called it the GUNSITE model and it was really nice. I had hoped to get one, but when it was released the price we were told it would be was no where even close to the final price so alas, I was unable to get one. That doesn't mean that I don't still want one...I do. One of these days I'll either have to buy a used one or get one made from parts coming from Fusion Firearms or Caspian. Another "carry" size 1911 that I really like is the Kimber CDP Compact. It looks and feels so much better than the Pro CDP or the Ultra CDP. Really a nice pistol that I would love to have. There is also a LWT XSE in 38 Super that Colt had out last year or so and it's a beauty. So after all that I am hoping you all can post some pics of CCO's, CDP Compacts and other "Carry Size" 1911's that you think fits in the category. If I was going to carry a 1911 it would certainly be one like the CCO or the Compact CDP. That is unless I found something much nicer.... Lets see your pics and hear your thoughts on these "CARRY 1911" choices. Thanks Nala Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
