Yesterday I told you about the Colt Gunsite CCO 1911. Today I made the mistake of shooting it. Gunsite owner Buz Mills sent his personal CCO down to the range and Gunsite Instructor Chris Weare run me through several drills with the pistol – 50 rounds worth.
The pistol handles every bit as good as a Lightweight Commander but its a bit lighter and easier to conceal due to the shorter grip. I REALLY liked this pistol and since I’m here for seven more days one might actually beat me home.
As stated, I would want to replace the sights but instead of the XS Big Dot I might go with the Novak Ghost Tritium Dot rear and a XS Standard Dot front. I’d also need to change the trigger. The CCO comes with a short trigger and I prefer a long trigger on a 1911. This might be why my group was a tad left of center. (Please don’t hold being to the LEFT against me.)
Aside from that and a Crimson Trace Laser Grip, this gun is ready to go. All it needs is some Galco leather. This all of course is personal preference, which is one of the great things about a 1911 – you can have it your way.
