    Light on officer-frame 1911?

    Kind of an odd question, but does anyone know if it's possible to mount a light rail on an officer-frame 1911, specifically in the CCO format?

    Remind me, the CCO is an Officer frame with a Commander slide, correct? I've seen no aftermarket retrofit light-rails for any 1911 frames shorter than full size. Those are available from Dawson Precision & Wilson. You might check with "Ten-Ring Precision" down in San Antonio, Texas. Because Alex Hamilton is one creative gunsmith. He knows almost everything. Good Luck!

    Correct. I don't think the commander slide really has anything to do with it, now that I think about it, and I just need to focus on an officer frame. I see the Insight X2 is actually designed as a light for a subcompact gun, but it might be a no-go if I can't find either an LED version of it or a way to retrofit it with an LED bulb.
