    Question Expense to convert Colt and Para?

    I have a Colt Officers and a Para P-12 both all steel frames.

    I have always wanted to go with a 4" or 4.25" length with either one of those. I believe you folks are refering to them as CCO's?

    Is it a major expense to have them converted or should I just go out and buy one built from the ground up?

    Also any comments on how they are balanced? Front heavy?

    I would rather not pay $500 or $800 for just having new slide and barrels if I can avoid it.

    Any suggestions?

    Barrel change

    I believe you would be ahead in the long run to just buy a different pistol, unless you want something additional done to them. I have a P12, and even though it only has a 3 1/2 inch barrel, it is an accurate little pistol, and being alloy it carries very well. The favorite pistol I own is a Commander, But I don't carry it. Too pretty.:
