Hey all.

I’ve wanted a CCO for the longest time but never had the spare money when one I liked came up. Now I’m gonna start saving what I can here and there and when I get enough, I’m finally gonna get a CCO with the aluminum frame to make carrying it more comfortable. I haven’t decided on what caliber yet. I’ll leave that for later I guess.

In the meantime, what CCO sized 1911 is your favorite and why? Maybe look at it this way....if you didn’t currently have one and found yourself really wanting one, which one would you get, in what caliber, finish and frame material??

Please post a pic if you already have 1.....or a few!!

If you had a ‘smith build you one, that counts too. Tell about it and since it’s more special....pics are therefore MANDATORY! I am pretty sure the by-laws here at 1911addicts state that if you do not post pics of these “more special” 1911’s when asked, you can be put on Double Secret Probation and your key to the Members Crapper will be taken away until the probation is lifted.
You surely don’t want anything like that to happen....do you? I’ll tell on you too...I really will. As soon as I find out WHO exactly controls such things.

Have a good week all.

Hey Larry,
Although I’m a big fan of the CCO platform, I only own one (Les Baer Stinger) chambered in 45 ACP. She’s no light weight, all steal (Hard Chrome) but she carries quite well. If I was wanting a light weight, I’d probably look at a Dan Wesson. I’m very pleased with my Dan Wesson LW Vigil Government model. I believe they also have a Vigil CCO. Good luck in your search.

My favorite is the only one I own. It’s a Colt CCO that Don Williams / The ActionWorks built for me after I spent a couple of years fruitlessly looking for one here in Kalifornia. Series 80 frame & Series 70 slide, Jarvis match barrel - pics will have to wait as its presently with Jardine for a couple of tweaks ;)

My favorite CCO will be whichever one I finally get! Been wanting a pistol in CCO configuration for years. Just haven't had opportunity and budget match up yet. Someday though!!

I always liked the idea of a CCO, but didn't care for the original Colt CCO's finish or sights. I plan to build one on a Caspian slide/frame set, eventually. I have a buddy's older Springfield Compact (4" bushing barrel w/Officer's frame) to rebuild this Summer. I bought a SIG C3 after three 1911 gunsmiths I really respect all telling me they (SIG in general, not necessarily the C3) think they're some of the best bang for the buck in a production 1911.

My only one...a DW CCO circa 2014...lightweight frame, .45acp, carries well and is a laser. Only thing i don’t like is the scalloped front-strap treatment...not enough grip...but skateboard tape fixed that..LOL.

I do like the Baer Stingers....soft spot for them...but not sure about the extra weight (steel frame) over an alloy frame.

I only have one. A DW Valkyrie in 9mm. I have only carried it once or twice, and it has been living in it's case in the safe ever since.

Only thing I have close in my old SA Lwt Compact.

Officer Frame with the Commander slide that was discontinued just before I ordered it.



I guess today SA again is offering a Range Officer Compact......Maybe someday I will pick one ip.
