    Joe mentioned these on GT. I just got an email introducing it and thought I would share the pic.

    From the email
    "We are proud to announce the new X-TAC Compact. The same unbeatable X-TAC tread pattern applied to a steel frame pistol with shorter butt and 4″ compact slide. Available in .45 ACP only at this time."

    A CCO can't be a 45?

    No a CCO has a 4.25 inch barrel on officer frame.

    It seems to be a general term like commanders. Maybe a sticky can be made with the descriptions of CCO, commander, combat commander.

    Not really

    CCO: Shortened frame with 4.25'' slide. I believe the original military ones were just modified.
    Commander: Aluminum frame with 4.25'' slide.
    Combat commander: Steel frame with 4.25'' slide.

    It's just different manufacturers do their own thing. A Wilson professional may not be a true commander because of the 4" slide, but is commonly referred to as one.

    My Wilson ULCc was a CCO, even though it was a 4" barrel.

    Well, if I'm wrong, I'm only off by 1/4". Surely a 4" gun is a "Commander", just the same as a 4.25" is. It is in my book anyway. :smile:
