Thanks

My gunsmith milled the right side of the ambi safety to help prevent it from snagging or getting pushed off safety. I didn't realize the benefit of an ambi until an IDPA stage called for weak hand only shooting.

The X-Grip provides a pinkie rest when I carry with an extended cap mag. And in the Adams pancake it doesn't print, so the extra capacity might come in handy.

There was a thread either on here or the IDPA fourm about using your middle joint on your trigger finger to flick off the thumb safety if you don't have an ambi. It's a neat trick to have in the bag.

Or you can use your thumb to go over to the other side and flick the safety lever.

Yep, both of those techniques can be learned.

By now I've just learned to thumb it down with my left hand.

That's beautiful. I'm guessing Colt doesn't make those anymore. Shame, I would love to have one. Guess ill have to settle for a DW instead.

There are some Talo Edition Colt CCO floating around. I bought one brand new last year.

Put some ugly ass grips on them. seriously.

Talo doesn't do anything, they're like some sort of specialty firearms merchant that commissions Colt, SW, Ruger, and other manufacturers to make "Talo Editions" and then sell the guns through the various distributors. Some of these "specialties" are nothing more than a paint job, some engravings, or out-of-production models.

The Colt CCO is one, for example. A full size Government Model 9mm is another. Colt used to make these as standard production but no longer, so Talo got them to do it in a special run of several hundred and put the "Talo" name on the model. Thank goodness, there's no "Talo" stamped on the gun anywhere.

Sometimes Talo does something cool like get Colt to do the SAA in royal blued and .45ACP. However, most of the time it's some sort of weird finish color or grips. Or getting Colt to put out the Series 70 with beavertail grip safety, Novak sights, etc.

Or with lots of blings like the PPK/S with lots of engravings or a Colt Government Model .38 Super with Aztec theme engravings.

I thought that all Colt CCOs had aluminum frames from the beginning?

They did. Commander slides, alloy Officers frames, 1998-1999

They may be. :dunno: I was just saying that mine is the Talo model.

CCO is my favorite Carry 1911! Not sure I would carry it with the extended grip ( kind of defeats the purpose) but may make a great back up mag.

It would seem to, but in my Adams pancake holster it doesn't print with the extended mag.

So, nine might end up being better than 8 some day. :cool:

Most of the time I carry it in a black, Adams pancake. When wearing a jacket I sometimes use a shoulder rig made in England.
