View Full Version : New Colt CCO - made it my own!

Hey everyone,
Just wanted to share the new pony in the stable. A Talo edition CCO lightweight commander (Steel blued slide/ Parkerized aluminum officer frame). Made a few changes to it...it really had a sloppy trigger - lots of wiggle, and a mushy break. I replaced internals and trigger with Cylinder&Slide parts, new extended thumb safety, bullet-proof slide release, stainless spring plug and bushing. Lastly...bone grips. Shoots and carries like a dream. Opinions? Did I over-pimp it...or do it justice?

Thanks in advance for looking

~Bob

I'm still debating over keeping the slide stop and thumb safety. If I restore the originals I'm putting on cocobolo checkered grips with the gold Colt pony medallions...

Too pimped for my tastes but you chose good parts it appears. The CCO is a great gun.

It's all up to you, but the stock controls with the bone grips would kick-***!

Natural state (almost) with the new grips.

I'm gonna do the same thing to my Talo CCO - add the checkered wooden grips with the medallions. Also I will switch out the trigger for the long trigger with a dark color. The contrasting trigger color just look weird to me.

I like the OP's gun with black controls and bone grips, and yours with silver controls and black grips. Don't much care for silver controls and bone grips :dunno:

To me, contrasting controls just make me think "garage gunsmith". The bone grips look great though. The only thing I changed on my CCO was to add a pair of ivory grips I bought when I was in Maui last summer.

Ha! I'm glad people here have a sense of humor. I'm sure my post could have been interpreted as rude, but it was not intended to be. It's all just personal taste. For some reason I have always seen 1911's with stainless frames and blue/black slides as classic customs, while guns with mis-matched controls made me think "built with whatever spare parts were in the drawer". Obviously there is no basis for that. It's just my taste.
