After a lot of agonizing and reading I bought a CCO that I intend to carry! I have been jonesing for a long time. I bought a STI Guardian and sold it after shooting it once. It just wasn't 'right' for me. Then I bought the old Springfield Compact that is too pretty to scratch or alter. Then I went back to thinking I wanted a LB Stinger. For whatever reason I backed off of that idea every time I was about to send CJ the deposit.

This came to my attention a few days ago, and I got butterflies!
Guncrafter Industries Stainless CCO

It should land at my FFL on Friday or Saturday! Hopefully Bac's words that I adopted for a sig line will ring true!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I like their look, very clean.

Thanks Steel Head. I really like the clean look as well.
I haven't even seen a GCI in person, so I'm a little nervous about this but have heard only good things about them.

Thanks.

Oddly enough there isn't that much info 'out there'.
I've search all over regarding this one being stainless since
previously they were hard chromed.

I'm really excited. I don't expect to own more than one GCI and wanted a CCO so hopefully this does scratch the itch.:rofl:

I've read a few things that one of the smiths from GCI has posted and am impressed by his words.

be my first for 2013. :cool:

Sweet. I think you came out on top of that deal!


FAA, do you have any info regarding the CCO being stainless.
Dave (thanks for the referral from both you and Glock2740) is going to let me know if he hears anything. He also mentioned some lube that Alex sends out with the stainless guns.

I forgot to mention it to the dealer that I'm buying it from.

Glock2740 do you own one of those? Is that the 'three amigos"?

SlideGlide is what I use on 1911 slide rails.
I previously used Rig +P stainless steel lube.......outstanding!

I keep meaning to check out the Enos site. I've heard good stuff about that lube.

I thought the Rig grease is more of a preservation grease.

Must not have stainless galling!

Thanks FAA. Damn that is a nice looking gun.
Have you shot it yet? I'm thinking you are too busy with family.
Soon?

I'm not into shiny guns but I got to admit that is a beauty:wow:
I have been running Slide-glide for a bit now-stays put and works well in freezing temps.

You must have been a very good boy last year!

Is the Springer the one with the Operator II's that you posted? Your Compact is gorgeous. I looked at that thread earlier.

Where is the sub-zero stuff??? I need something that can last as long as my hands which on some days is about three magazines between warm ups. I absolutely hate shooting at indoor public ranges. I've never had a problem with galling. My guns are cleaned and lubed after each time I use them. We've been using a mix of (top secret) mix of 50-50 automatic transmission fluid and engine assy. lube. I think we've used plain old Mobil 1 for winter pistol league!

What size 1911 is that? Looks like a Commander length, but maybe a little longer? Regardless, a beautiful 1911!

Sig RCS from their custom shop. 4.25" barrel, 7+1 two toned with rosewood compact grips. It's just under 30oz empty. Been wanting this one for awhile, my dad made it worse buying the nitron finish model last year! Finally had the money and the desire to buy.

Should have next week.

Do you intend to carry it? You do know it won't be your last though, right? Worse than Skittles.

Described as possibly the 'Quintessential Carry Piece'.
I hope that it's everything you expect it to be.
Congrats!

Beach what kind of skiing do you do? Or does that mean something else? Regardless, Happy Winter! I'm hopin' for a little
cross country skiing tomorrow or the next day.

Thanks I do plan on carrying it so I'm looking forward to getting it and getting comfortable with it. I've ordered a custom IWB with extra mag slot from my custom leather guy that makes my Glock holsters - Gaunt Leatherworks.

As far as skiing goes, I've been a competitive water skier since college. Slalom and trick skiing. I also snow ski.

Someone who spoke with Alex Zimmerman told me today that this is in fact the first Stainless GC CCO. I'm pretty damn happy about that. I have a thing for stainless guns. I'm hoping this is the nicest gun that I own. It's a little different from my Winchester Model 67 collection.

Just waiting to hear regarding shipping confirmation.

My initial intent was to carry it and to shoot the hell out of it. Kinda thinking I might need two, or just keep on carrying the Glock. :faint:

Sawgrass,

I think that you need an M1911 chambered in a proper caliber: .38 Super.

Sawgrass,

I agree and I might even have of an idea of what it is going to be :supergrin:

That said, I went to my local gun shop a little bit ago to pick this one up.

We all salivated all over it and of course dry fired a few times to feel the trigger.

The trigger on this gun is a whole new experience for me. I own a few nice guns but haven't felt anything like it.

The machining is unmatched. I haven't ever seen a better slide to frame fit or smooth action pulling the slide back.

AND THEN I WAS DELAYED :crying:Leaving it there felt like I was walking away from my first born.:crying:

Maybe if I go take my boots and my gun off they will call me!

I hate to about the delay, but, and I'm going to tell you about the GCNN CCO...I told you so. :cool: It's a bad monkey aint it? :) Sweet trigger. Makes that Pro feel like junk huh? :rofl:

It raises the bar. I don't own ANYTHING that feels like this.
My previous best trigger was done by Novak. This is better.

I may have some guns for sale pretty soon.


HATING that I passed on a SW952. I knew I was drawn to it, but didn't know enough to make the purchase.

sawgrass
01-08-2013, 23:44
Finally able to bring it home today. It is everything that a 1911 should and shouldn't be. I was especially happy to find a GI set up inside. Nothing 'funny' going on. The craftsmanship is unmatched. I don't think I could be any happier. I put 50 rounds through it.
And am shooting twice tomorrow. Is is soft for a CCO. I think after a few more rounds and my Brommeland Holster arrives, the Beretta's and the Glocks will be taking a nap.

I love the clean simple functionality of this gun.
