Colt CCO Gunsite Pistol .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Colt CCO was spiffy, we thought. It would have been Our Pick based on its smaller, more concealable overall size, slightly lighter weight and better performance, but its grip safety failed.

Despite the CCO's shorter grip, we could get all our fingers onto it. Reloading required lifting the pinkie to ensure full seating of the mag.
Top: The Kimber had no front bushing. It's barrel was fitted into the slide. The Smith (center right) and the Colt's CCO both had forward serrations. Bottom : Only the CCO could be taken apart without tools. All three guns were well dehorned, and would not damage hands or holsters.
