I should have been more specific, I want a Commander sized gun with ECO features, namely, 4" (or 4.25") bull barrel, lightweight frame, top serrations, ledge sights rather than Novak sights, and a Bobtail with checkering (like the VBob rather than the Guardian). A round butt option is fine, but personally, I would only be interested in the Bobtail.Is is possible and if so practical to have an officer frame bobbed?
Yes, it seems we have two options, buy a gun with all the features we want (or can live with) or order a custom built model. An option I like to consider is the purchase of the model that is closest to what I want and then send the gun/slide to DW for modification.These would be pretty easy to do in regard to manufacturing and assembly. Obviously my personal preferences but that can be said of everyone posting here.
I'd second all that, with the addition of having the same thing in 38 Super. In fact, just one pistol with both barrels fitted would be even better!!CCO in 9mm. Checkered front strap and main spring housing. Rounded butt on the housing. Current CCO is a beaut. Need a 9mm.
Easier to get the gun back up after a combat reload if you prefer using the slide stop release to recover from lock back. I slingshot the slide after lock back, because that's how work wants us to do it... Our firearms training staff operate under the theory that fine motor skill quickly dissolves in lethal force encounters and the slingshot is more of a gross skill, which can still be done when you have "combat mittens" on.I am with you on this one. For all models
Anybody knows the theory behind the longer paddle?
I was going to post this!!!I love the CCO but not the scalloped front strap/mainspring housing. I like the valkyre but not the cuts in the end of the slide.. can we get a CCO with 25 lpi checkering and all black small parts, trigger, barrel bushing, hammer, saftey, slide stop, and grip saftey?
