Default tax time 1911?

really thinking about getting a 1911 officer model for concealed carry.
I currently carry a Walther P-99, but I'm ready to go back to the .45. I'm reading this 1911 forum. anyone got any advice?

Try some out and see what works for you. I carry a 3" 1911 nearly everywhere I go. The thin profile makes it a much better choice for me over my other guns such as a Glock, Sig or XD.

With my taxes, I will be lucky to get one from the Dollar tree wrapped in a plastic bag.

I plan on buying a colt 1911 gold cup .22 ,just to plink with. My question is, are the slide lock, trigger, hammer and grip safety all universal with all 1911's regardless of caliber of the weapon?

OK, so it's not an Officer's Model in the strictest sense of the definition. That extra 3/4" of barrel length isn't a problem to conceal and it makes it easier to shoot well.

If your really fussy about having the short barrel:

Try the Ithaca 1911. It is an amazing production gun. The slide is like glass and feels like it has been worked by a fine gunsmith. The trigger is very crisp. I recently got to hold one and was very impressed. Don't poo poo it until you have played with one.

What is your budget in mind?

Your price will dictate whether you should be looking into a Rick Island Armory 3.5" tactical or a Springfield EMP

I have a dandy little Springfield Ultra Compact in 9mm that I sometimes use for carry and I absolutely love it. Buy used for roughly $600, new for $800

Sig over the Ruger any day for me. The C3 is a CCO size though, not a true compact. Sig does make other compact models though.
