my fav of all time is starting to get a little honest carry wear
I love my CCO's and when I carry a 1911, it's usually a CCO.
Guncrafter No Name CCO
Wilson ULCc (left) and Wilson Stealth (right)
Are the two Wilson's the same as CCO's slide and frame-wise?
They are both 4" slides on officer frames. 1/4" off from being a "true" CCO, by definition, but close enough in my book to be called a CCO.
What doe those run, $2500-$3000?
Depends on how you spec them out. But here are the base prices. They aren't cheap, but you do get what you pay for.
I must've been thinking "Nighthawk".
^^^It's my carry 45.
Corbon DPX with Barnes, all-copper bullets?
Nighthawk's options are very limited when it comes to the Commander and CCO size guns. And IMPO, I'd take a new Wilson or Guncrafter over a new Nighthawk these days.
Given my choices, I'd rather carry my Commanders. The CCO is strictly a toy for me because I'm not keen on the shortened grip frame. I can put rounds much faster and repeatedly with the standard grip frame, and the shortened frame isn't that short to make a difference in concealment for me.
When I read the title of the thread, my first thought was Close Combat Optic. I was a little worried about you.
ETA: I love the grips on that CCO.
Thanks, they're the new "Master Series"
replaced these "flamers":embarassed:
No, 185gr Critical Defense. In my chrono testing with this gun, that load gives me the most energy of the ammo I have. It handles 230gr just fine too and I'm sure either would do the job just fine
I guess I am still a bit confused. I used to have a Dan Wesson CBOB. So a CCO is sort of like putting the 4.25 slide on an EMP frame?
A CCO is a Commander slide on an Officer frame.
My Springfield Compact 45 will be an EDC, upon it's return from Rogers Precision.
I can't wait to see that one Greg.
I loves me some CCO.
I carry mine each and every day, and shoot steel and UPSPA matches with it. I'm closing in on 18k rounds through it and it just keeps running.
