You can leave it up there. Just put pics of yours next to it.

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.

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.

Sawgrass,

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

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

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 Leaving it there felt like I was walking away from my first born.

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. It's a bad monkey aint it? Sweet trigger. Makes that Pro feel like junk huh?

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.

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.
