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-***!

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

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.
