I am considering building, or having someone build my next 1911 pistol. I really like the CCO (officer's frame with a commander slide) style of pistol for carry use. I am committed to it being either 9mm or most likely 38 super for the caliber. I am also wanting it to be as light as possible. I am particularly interested in finish suggestions, I prefer black, but would like something that provides excellent corrosion resistance and some level of lubricity if possible.

Here is what I have so far, what are your suggestions or ideas.

Lew's CCO Pistol

Caliber:
38 Super or
9mm or both

Frame:

Match grade barrel
Novak low profile adjustable black rear
Tritium front (dovetail)

are you looking to have it built or is this a project for you?

I have given some thought to building it myself, but most likely I will have this built. I have a local smith in mind, but nothing committed at this point. Do you have a suggestion?

not sure.

you are pretty limited to a 4.25 barrel since you want a bushing barrel. 4" barrels are bull.

for the frame, you can start with a Wilson frame. i can't think of anyone else that sells an alloy "CCO" frame.

for the slide, you might be able to get a 9mm/38S Compact slide and barrels from Wilson as well, they are not listed on their sight though.

the rest of the parts are easy to get.

Like that frame, thanks!

Has anyone done a build using any parts from Fusion?

nope, but to save you some time from dealing with Fusion (which seems like a gamble) their frames are from either Remsport, or STI.

you could also contact Remsport to see if they have an alloy CCO sized frame.

John is a cool guy. If he doesn't have what you want, he will steer you in the right direction.

If this is a do it yourself then Wilson and C&S in my opinion have outstanding quality parts. I'm sure you can also find a 1911 pistol smith somewhere in your neighborhood that can help.
