    I'm looking to get a 1911 when I get back from Iraq. I'm really hoping to get a black cco around $1500 - $2000 but I'm having a hard time finding one. Any suggestions would be great.

    First off, :welcome:

    Secondly, in that price range, I'd look at Les Baer, unless you're dead set on something small.

    Although I do not have a Les Baer, I second the motion on getting one. Another choice I recommend is a DW Valor. Mine shoots great and seems to be a great 1911. Good luck on your quest.

    You might look for/at a Colt Gunsite CCO. They're out of production but they show up semi-frequently on the gun auctions. Nice pistol--good size, lightweight, reasonably well made and generally can be had in great condition for $1000-->$1200. I found mine NIB from a dealer on gunbroker for $1195.
    Stay safe.

    Thanks for the fast replys everyone. I'm really liking the Monolith Commanche and the Custom Carry.

    I think the Custom Carry is a great choice and the have it in the Commanche as well and you might want to check out the Stinger model as well it's close to your original specs

    Yeah man, I didn't even notice they had a Custom Carry Commanche, I think that's the one. Though I'm still open to more suggestions. :supergrin:

    That would be a good choice I think they run around $1600.00 or $1700.00 but not completely sure.

  17. there's far better 1911's in the $1,500-$2,000 price range than the CCO.
