First 2013 1911

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!

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.

Dang I can't get the picture to copy properly.
I guess I'll have to wait until it's here to post a pic.

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

Yes, it's a CCO. Didn't see that Glock2740 replied.

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.

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

Here are the three stainless GI No Name 1911s. The back one will
be my first for 2013.

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"?

Congrats! I recently bought a Sig Tac Ops and have been very pleased with it so far. That one should be great for CC.

What I know about Sig 1911's would fit upon the head of a straight pin. What is it?

It's nice looking. When will you get it?
Congrats. Start saving your money...

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.

Sounds Sweet! I'll go look it up!
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.
