Picked up my very own DW CCO yesterday. It's #34 and brand spanking new from the factory. This thing is VERY nice in it's fit and finish with attention having been paid to the details. I haven't shot it and won't have a chance to do so until next week, but from others that own one, it's a real tack driver. My other two DW's are as well, so this is no surprise.
For those who may not have heard of the CCO concept, it's a commander slide on an officer frame. The pics show the details, including the little 1/4" "bobtail" at the butt of the grip. I never really thought much of this, but in a side by side feel test with my Ultra Carry II, I have to say, I prefer the DW time after time for pure feel.
Chainlink texturing on the MSH and the frontstrap.
The only thing I changed is the grips and bushings. It came with full thickness grips, but this model just begs for slims, so I changed out the bushing and screws, and fit some snakewood thins to her. I think it's a beautiful overall package.
Sorry for the poorly lit pics.

Yep... that's the one I've been wanting. I hope you continue to enjoy it, and please give us an update once you've had a chance to take it to the range.

I hear there's some gnarly old Army NCO who beats puppies with kittens making them in a shop behind his house somewhere in Kansas. Rumor has it that he hides under bridges and eats small lost children too, but that's just a rumor. :aaa: :blink:

I'd like to see a Dan Wesson LW commander in the cerekote finish for 2010.

Nice pistol Sarge, that's the next 1911 on my list. I think my TRP is going to have to go to make room for a DW CCO. I like the grips also.

Very very nice indeed. Dan Wesson CCO (Concealed Carry Officer) and DW 1911's in general are one of the top semi-custon 1911's on the market. My Pointman 7 has been flawless for me.

For those who are not fimilar with the Dan Wesson 1911's you really need to be, outstanding quality and value.

Hey, Sarge.

You wouldn't happen to make grips for P239's, would you?:image035:

Sorry Patti. The 1911's are keeping me more than running. I really need to quit my day job. :smile:
I'm glad you guys like it and are maybe seeing one for the first time. If you get the chance to hold one in a shop, you really should take advantage of the opportunity. It will give you an appreciation for the quality of it.

I'm reading you loud and clear Sarge. But holding leads to wanting, wanting leads buying, etc. etc. etc......

But a set of nice grips are still on the list.
