    Not mine, but i thought it would be an FYI post since I haven't seen the inner of a CO Arms gun. No wonder they went out of business.

    Looks like the slide is done.... I dont think the cost of fixing it will be worth what you have in the end. Maybe for a good project.... but adding back metal (welding) and remachining can get expensive quick....

    My dealer still has two CO arms Scorpions in the case. They have been there for a year or so.

    They are very poorly constructed. Its comical, actually.

    I'm glad I heard a review straight from Dave when he went and shot the CO's. I had been talking to the owner(can't remember his name), but I was just about to buy one. What a POS! I would've been really pissed.

    I have to say....without a shadow of a doubt, I called that one. They were/are a very, very scary 1911 to say the least.

    I was hoping you'd start carrying them Dave. I was thinking about getting my ClassIII.

    Thanks for the post. My dealer has a 9mm CO Arms thats been sitting for awhile and I've been considering it just to have as a novelty; but I would also want it to shoot safely. I think I'll pass.
