    No longer listed on the STI site. Any insight?

    He is probably jumping to another company...again.

    Who hasn’t he had a “pro model” through?

    Perhaps, but I wasn't buying it for his name... or that Magnum 2.0 is carrying it. I just flat out love that gun. Dammit...

    I don’t know if they really list their special edition ones. I know the Costa I have was never on their website.
    Also, betting the Omni is taking its place

    I honestly am surprised the CCC lasted as long as it did. They stopped making the Costa 5.0 and the Costa VIP a year ago. Contracts end.... I will say it was a good move on STI's part as it gained them more exposure.

    CCC's still come up on the used market, there are plenty of new ones on dealers shelves, you could always get the Magnum PI version and then there's always the Omni.

    BTW, I just received a new OWB Garrett Industries holster for a CCC this week. Their holsters are pure awesome!

    I’ll talk to you in March, see if you’re ready to part with one yet. ;)

    I've got lots of guns to sell. Lots of double and triples in the collection, I'm just not ready to let a CCC go get.

    I'm patient. Need to save up the dough, anyway.

    I just sent the grip from my Guardian into Extreme Shooters for the DVC treatment, anxious to get that one back.

    It's the best upgrade/money spent you can do to a STI. If for some bizarre reason you are not happy with it let me know and I'll swap out a new 120mm grip for it.

    What texture did you end up going with?

    DVC. I have the Treebark on my Tactical, wanted to try DVC on the Guardian.

    I'm with Descartian, I'm guessing that the contract is over.... I do hope that STI does keep the CCC alive somehow as its my favorite pistol. I like my Omni's but the Costa is a better carry pistol with a very unique and excellent look to it. To me the Costa Carry Comp is the nicest and cleanest 2011 out there.
