alloy/aluminum frame for a CBOB(imitation CCO)




I would like to jump on the CCO bandwagon BUT had a thought just now. I have a CBOB, proper gun belt and great holster but it is still a load to carry the CBOB and it seems to print more than my Kimber CDP Ultra II which has an officer's length grip. Could I buy a completed officer's alloy/aluminum frame and use the CBOB slide assembly? How much fitting might be required?

Covered in the post here . What it ended up being is that you would need major work to the gun. In other words could be done, but not worth the money nor the effort.

That link was for taking a 4inch slide, and putting it on a regular frame off a 5inch gun. Thats why there would be lots of work. The Commander frame is different than the Govt frame.

AFAIK, the CCO is a commander (4in) slide, on an Officers frame. I dont know why you wouldnt be able to do what you suggest, unless its not a true commander slide and there is something different about it.

It would probably be costly unless you can fit a slide to frame yourself, otherwise you'll have to to send your slide off to have someone fit it to a frame.

Emailing Dave Severns or Bob Serva would get you a 100% answer and probably a $ quote if you asked.

thanks for the replies everyone. JDSig, I COULD fit a slide to frame myself, but having it work is another matter.

Yes you can, and it is done all the time. You have have to have the new frame fitted to the slide,, but some folks like Fusion will do it rather inexpensively ( at least what I consider inexpensively). You might get lucky and the CBOB slide "slides" right on a Officer frame and every thing is good.

Actually, a Commander slide is a 4.25 barrel with a barrel bushing. The 4 inchers and bull barrels are what ever the company making then call them, but Commanders they ain't.

I think everyone should try a crossbreed supertuck...
Anyone want to buy a box full of holsters I'll never use again?
