I couldn't pass it up. I actually went to the store with the intent to buy a Kimber Eclipse. It caught my attention and screamed take me home!!
It was dry as a bone after 3 years of sitting in a case. It is clean, lubed and ready to shoot. I'm going to try to go after work tomorrow.
I had a chance to buy a CCO about 2 years ago. There was a new Combat Commander XS and the CCO , the XS style with stainless slide and stainless finish frame in the dealer's case. I bought the Commander and love it, but I should have gotten both. Have been looking for one ever since. I don't really care for the two-tone job.
If it wasn't for the NRA, the second ammendment would already be gone!
Funny thing, that's what happened to me. Found both an XS CCO and an XS Combat Commander NIB, sitting side by side, nearly a year and a half ago. Had real trouble making my mind up. Both were at $675. Went with the Commander, instantly missed the CCO, and then looked for a year for another CCO, NIB. I might add I found one at a significantly higher price.

She's a shooter! I ran 150 rounds of ball, & 30 or so assorted JHPs. No problems at all. 7 and 15 yards, nice groups. The sights were actually dead on, something rare for me. A little more kick than my Pro-Carry, probably due to the lack of a guide rod and heavier barrel. It's a keeper no doubt. I don't know if I can keep it stock though. I'm going to try, other than a grip change and lighten up the trigger to 4-4.5, from a guess of around 6-6.5lbs. Ooh yeah I may throw a Wilson Easy-Loader mag well on as well. and uhhh
After reading some prices here I think I got a good deal, $712 on the nose.
