NEW Talo CCO...




New TALO Colt Lightweight Officer's CCO. Just saw one on Gunbroker. Looks to be #35 of only 150. Also looks like about a $1200 pistol.
Standard S80 style post sights, angled Enhanced style REAR slide serrations, S80 style single thumb safety, short aluminum solid trigger, true mem-bump beavertail, blue/black w/special wood grips.

Is this a NEW model, then?

It's only lying if someone believes it.

I don't see anything over a Clapp LW Commander that would make me buy one at the present time.

Sure but for a lot of folks the Officers sized grip makes it best of two worlds.

I remember years ago that when Colt had the Defender Plus with the normal grip and the short slide almost everyone said they should have gone the other direction and put the Commander slide on the Officers grip frame.

And I think Colt did have the Tank Officers model with a full length grip on an Officer size frame and the Tank Commander with an Officer length grip on a Commander size frame. I have seen a few over the years and think they were all steel and had the 80 Series safety.

There are a few odd choices for that model. You would think they would use the standard Novak style sights for a gun geared towards concealed carry. The short trigger with the flat mainspring housing is also another weird decision. I do like the lack of front cocking serrations, and the single sided safety.

I just wish Colt would put something like into normal production under their XSE line. I love the CCO concept since it's lighter and smaller, yet keeps the grip in proportion with the slide. An aluminum framed version with all the normal XSE upgrades (sights, extended safety, beavertail) and front serrations would probably be a big hit.

The grip is the width of one round shorter for the CCO over the Commander. If that is critical for someone for concealed carry then I say, "Go for it !" but since I already have the WC then I think I'll pass. However, this is NOT a criticism of this pistol which I probably would have bought if it had been available before I got my WC. I, like others, think this should be a regular Colt item. It makes more sense to me than DA Defender/Agents in 9MM.
But who am I to question Colt's marketing as I am only a long-time buyer of their 1911s. What do I know ?

Colt shows no sign of even having a marketing dept. Whoever makes the decisions ref. which pistols to produce should be publicly flailed.
I'd be a bit more excited over the run of new CCO's if they were listed as a regular production item.

To show how picky I really am.....

I take notice TALO didnt ask Colt to properly rollmark the slide. It, to me, should be rollmarked "CCO" rather than "Commander".

The box reads LWT Officers CCO but the pistol reads Commander.

Too bad.

I really like the looks of that pistol. If it was a Series 70 with a standard Commander frame I'd be close to opening the wallet. I'd put an arched mainspring housing on it, but that's just me.

I like what's coming out of Talo, it shows what Colt can do. I think they are both going in the right direction.

I've been waiting on a CCO since seeing the Special Combat Officer.
Then I saw Talo would be introducing one earlier this year and became excited.

This is disappointing.
No Novak sights, an incorrect rollmark.
It's just two $800 guns slapped together with nothing else special and a $1200 price tag.
I really hope the street price is $1000 or less or I'll be waiting until 2012 for the SCO.



Is it me or is there dust cover rub in picture 9?

Same, same.

I ended up breaking down and getting a Gunsite CCO.

Disappointing to say the least. It's no different really than the one I built out of a standard commander slide and a compact frame. It's blah. I've been after aCCO since the first one was introduced and I guess I'll continue to wait.

Davidson's has MSRP at $1206 & street price at my LGSs ranged from $1138 to $1168 + change. One of them is on it's way to a LGS near me. Hope it wasn't a mistake! They didn't have a pic of it when I ordered, just went on the Colt name & Davidsons' reputation. Had (11) in stock when I spotted them last night, zero now!

They have a photo up now & I like it!

I appreciate their strictly utilitarian effort, but it should have Novaks (the short trigger is easy enough to replace for those, like me, who prefer longer). Kudos for the grip safety and the finish, but for $1200 I will hold out for a used DW.

Yes, like the weather in Iowa, Colt's marketing and selection process is often a rollercoaster of '***' proportion. I usually use the word "goofy!".
With four different 3" compact models for the CCW folks, why can't they have at least ONE RPO CCO?
I guess we should be thanking TALO for dragging Colt into the 21st century?

A few more have been popping up on GB.
Looks like one could be had for $999, plus $25 shipping.
For the time being, I think I will just sit back and watch.

So... who is going to be first... Golly Gee?

Too bad.
The earliest CCOs were rollmarked "Commander Lightweight", and also had GI-style sights. I don't know what distributor had them made back then. I bought mine by accident a couple of months ago when I was looking for an affordable Commander for a custom carry piece. Mine has a polished stainless slide on a black anodized frame, and the odd rollmark somehow appeals to me.
