posted on September 7, 2019
Inspired and guided by the expertise of U.S. Special Forces Trainers with “the highest levels of control, accuracy and reliability,” Colt manufactures a Commander-size 1911 chambered for 9 mm Luger and dubbed the Combat Unit CCO. Weighing in at 32 ozs., Colt’s Combat Unit CCO utilizes a Commander-size frame built from aluminum, with a dark-matte anodization. Topping the frame is a stainless steel slide with a featured PVD Black finish. Modern upgrades, such as series-80 controls, serrations near the muzzle, composite G10 stocks, an extended magazine well and Novak sights, adorn the 4.25”-barreled pistol. To learn more, watch our NRA Gun of the Week hosted by American Rifleman’s Joe Kurtenbach.
