Joe mentioned these on GT. I just got an email introducing it and thought I would share the pic.
Are these CCO sized weapons?
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."

The frame looks like it is.
Thank you sir
A CCO can't be a 45?
Sure it can. Dan Wesson has them.
That looks really good.
So is this a CCO sized weapon?
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.
This IS complicated.
Where's my G19?
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.
That is sharp! but i do not think i would purchase one. The only compact i would get from WC would be the ULCC
My Wilson ULCc was a CCO, even though it was a 4" barrel.
I thought a CCO was like I described it. Huh learn something new everyday.
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:
I believe George has one ready to roll...
