    I think that's a perfect example of something that's rare because it was a stupid idea.
     
  3. lol worst of both worlds...

    I've been seriously thinking of doing a caspian build with an officers length grip and commander length slide but that's just silly...

    :rofl:Not to mention that it's priced about $2000 more than I'd pay for it.

    Gosh I remember those and I missed them when they first showed up. I think I am going to have to make sure I don't buy this one to make myself feel better about not buying one the first time.

    And that's why it didn't sell for squat back in the days.

    If I were to find one for reasonable price, I'd buy it just for giggles, but yeah, that was a dumb idea.

    For me, its simply. I don't buy any 1911 without a full length frame and a barrel shorter than 4". That leaves out the CCOs though, unfortunately.

    I have a Colt lightweight officer's model that I put a combat commander slide and barrel on. It shoots very well.
