    I have always wanted one of these light weight concealed carry officer pistols. CCO for short. I had originally ordered one of the new Dan Wesson CCO pistols. But ended up canceling that order and going with the Fusion Firearms version.

    Forged Alum Officer Frame With Ion-Bond coating
    Stainless Steel Commander slide
    Trijicon night sights.

    All I can say is WOW :thumbup:if you are ever in the market for a custom 1911 you will not be disappointed going with a Fusion.

    It will be coming in the near future. I had this made specifically to be my primary carry piece. I plan on hitting the range on Saturday and putting several hundred down range

    Geez Andy, leave it to you to make my decision more difficult. I too was about to order a DW CCO until Fusion showed up on my radar. I just got my quote back from Bob though, and for the cost difference I could buy myself another gun I've been wanting in addition to the CCO. I'm thinking maybe I'll buy the CCO this time around then save for a Fusion for next Christmas. We all know one can never have enough 1911's :thumbup:

    If you go with a blued Fusion CCO, base model, you can get it for $1595, which is only $250-$300 more than the DW CCO's go for. I have a DW CCO, and it is a VERY sweet piece, but not as sweet as my Fusion. The Fusion is definitely worth the extra money. You can't go wrong with either one though.

    That's a beautiful gun, Andy. Looks like it was worth the wait. I've had my Dan Wesson CCO for a little over a month, and the size is just about perfect for a lot of uses. That Fusion, even with the cost and the wait just looks terrific. Congratulations on your Christmas Present!

    Man, I've been looking for someone who owns both to comment on the decision. Good thing you're here :thumbup:

    You don't happen to live near Portland, do you? I've really been wanting to shoot one of each and I'm sure I could find some way to make it worth your time. One of the main selling points of the Fusion for me is the IonBond finish, since I'm one of those prissy guys who doesn't like it when his guns get holster wear. Unfortunately, that's what's adding so much to the price.

    I had a chance to check out a DW CCO a while back and it is a really well made gun and i would have no reservations owning one. I just was not a fan of the grips and finish on the DW CCO. I am very happy with the Fusion this is my second one and both have been fantastic.

    Took the CCo out to the range on Saturday put two hundred rounds down range with out a single issue. Accuracy was dead on and any additional recoil ue to the aluminum frame was non noticeable. This is a great handling, well balanced and easy to carry 1911.
