Dan Wesson 1911 Eco Pistol .45 ACP Black
Presenting the ECO, a true single stack officer size 1911 weighing in at only 25 oz. For years the Officer 1911 has been criticized for reliability. Dan Wesson has taken care of that by using some of the latest technology as well as their background in doing what others say can’t be done. This gun has all the latest and greatest they have to offer. The gun wears Tritium night sights with their tactical ledge sight on the rear of our lightweight 3.5” slide. The ECO barrel is a flush cut ramped bull barrel with target crown rather than the traditional barrel and barrel bushing. This makes the gun slightly more compact and easier to disassemble. The recoil system is quite unique for this style of 1911 as it uses a solid one piece guide rod and a flat recoil spring that is rated for 15,000 rounds in .45 ACP. That is 15,000 rounds! Not 500 rounds like most 1911 dual recoil systems are rated for. This is unheard of in a production 1911! This recoil system also gives the benefit of a smooth slide for easier operation and less felt recoil.
