Hey guys, I was just wondering what you guys might consider to be a reasonable price for a new in box pt-cco. I found one for 899.+ tax but that seems a little high to me. The problem is that these guys won't lowr their prices for anything.

It seems a little steep,but if you found it on Gunbroker then that's about the going rate for a NIB pre-CZ model. If you really must have the Officer's frame,I guess you have to take it or leave it but I wouldn't pay that much.

You can get a new CBOB for the same price, or probably less.

No it's local. Yes, I got a 10mm cbob for not much over 800. and a new .45 is somewhere around 850 now. I don't particularly like the officers frame over the bobtail, both are ok, but i figure it's probably lighter for carry. For example a sig carry is a little over 35 ounces and a steel frame compact (like the pt-cco) is 30. So that's a pretty good difference in carry weight. It puts it at my p220 weight which I find to be about just right for no belt carry while the 35 ouncer pulls my pants down. Not much different with belt, but I rarely use one as I rarely wear pants that take one. I'm either a warmup/sweat pants or shorts kinda guy.

Brand spanking new and they have never sold it. It's been there for a long time. By local I mean same state.

I have a little more time to think about it. I keep thinking they will drop the price but the thinks he is perfect at pricing guns and will not haggle. He tells the sales guys that also.

Looks like this will go on the back burner, I'm eyeballing a potential good deal right now. mwahahahaha (in his most evil laugh)

P, I have a CCO and love it. I think I paid $750 on GB. I think the price is a little high but if you by it you will not be disappointed. Back burner sounds good with a standing offer you can live with. Its burning dust on his self and he may decide to move it.

That's what I keep thinking. I don't know how many years it's been there.

Right Vic. Like I said,it's high unless you want a Dan Wesson CCO,and only a Dan Wesson CCO. They don't make them anymore.

If you want to get down to 30 oz,you could always get an aluminum frame Commander and have it bobtailed,but that'll put you over $900 probably. That would be the perfect carry set-up for me,although I don't find the CBOB's weight to be bad at all....but I wear a tool belt with a hammer and pliers and screwdrivers all day so I'm kinda used to it.

The weight itself doesn't bother me, it's the type of pants I wear and they get pulled down on that side. I don't plan on switching to uncomfortable pants with a belt just to carry a heavier gun. I would prefer to carry it WHEN I am dressed for it.

I owned a colt lwt xse cdr that I cut the bobtail in myself before and it was a very nice carry gun. I wound up selling it though. I find the idea of a steel framed gun (cco) at the same weight as an aluminum framed cdr appealing. I have a line on another cco.

You can also use one of these on a cco to use an 8 round mag if you choose and it's very close to bobtail shaped, being able to go both ways would be pretty cool I think. I like bobtails, have owned several of them but being able to switch between an officers size and cdr size is appealing.:

The x grip wouldn't add much more weight than the extra bullet.

I have been tossing around the idea of getting a springfield lwt gi and rebuilding it including cutting in a bobtail. They're pretty easy to do. I plan on cutting bobtails in both of my sig's a little later on.

Edit: I went this route instead:

Yep, can you believe it. The good part is I did all the work myself except the hard chroming so I didn't do bad. The bad part is that I have regretted it.

I'm thinking I have to do another just like it at some point just so I don't think about it the rest of my life.:)

I am going to bobtail my sig's at sme point before much longer.

It's pretty easy, but then I do just about everything else to 1911's also.
