Lightweight CCO

Thinking of one of these in 22TCM/9mm combo. I see reviews of the 45 but not this one. Anyone have any feedback on this model?

Just got a sample of the CCO to try. Have 250 rounds of the 22TCM to burn thru so we'll report back later; so far it runs fine with 9mm.

I have one and love it!! However, it's had a little customization.

I've been really looking at adding one of these. Now that it seems like 9mm magazines have been figured out. I think it would be a great carry piece.

I have one and it's a fine gun. Really fun to shoot the 9mm in a 1911.

Other than making loud noises and small holes in targets, what have you all used the 22TCM for? Just wondering.

When I purchased mine new, I came home and removed the 22tcm barrel and recoil spring. I installed the 9mm bbl and recoil spring and have not looked back. The 9mm in a 1911 is accurate and fun to shoot! I really don't have much use for the tcm, but may some time when I'm bored.

We got our RIA combo 9mm/22TCM CCO as a editorial sample. We carry a 9mm CCO ( any one of several flavors) almost every day and shoot them a lot. We agree that shooting 9mm in a 1911 is like going to heaven, especially when your wrists and elbows have suffered 40+ years of Major 45ACP. The 22TCM is new to us and we just wondered what most folks used the cartridge for.

Hmm, are my eyes deceiving me or did this model disappear from the RIA site?

We were told they are making some changes to the line. It seems a bit confusing but we believe they will still offer the pistol as a 22TCM with the 9mm conversion available separately. Maybe someone from RIA will clarify this.

FYI we went out yesterday and shot the TCM a bit. The 39gr 9R ammo ran fine thru the 9mm magazines provided with the pistol and the 40 gr load (the longer one) ran just fine when fed from a MEC-GAR 38 super magazine. Seems to us that the pistol could be shipped with both 9mm and 38 Super mags and then it could be used with either variation of the TCM ammo. Or, maybe they could just limit it to one load; like the longer one. Are we missing something here?

Dangit, should have snagged it when I was pondering it. The ones that are in stock have all popped up $150.00 in price. Wonder if I should just hold out for the updated lineup?

Since 99% of all ammo fired is for making small holes in paper or other targets and to make noise. Although the remaining 1% use it for small game hunting and even SD, it works better than average for making noise and small holes in targets. So, your point is?

Dr. Lou

Could you clarify for us why there are two different 22TCM loads? The 9R 39gr. load works from 9mm magazines and the 40 gr. load works out of 38 Super mags in the same pistol from our experience. It would seem to be simpler to just provide mags compatible with the 40gr. load (as well as 2 9mm mags) with the 9mm pistols rather than having two different loads. Are we missing something significant? Other than the fact that the 9R load fits in Glock mags, in which case why not have just the shortest of the two loads.

You're not missing anything. The 22TCM came out first and many simply prefer shooting it in the 1911; some claim reliability, others like the looks of the longer round. Our 9mm/22TCM combos come with 9mm mags, requiring the use if the 9R. I shoot both from my CCO and have no issues with either round.
