I've very interested in a Dan Wesson CCO. Does anyone here have any experience with them? If so can I get a quick run down of the pros/cons of this 1911. Also are they hard to come by, or are they radially available. I have checked out a few places on line and the say they have none in stock.

Thanks!

I have one and love it. Fit and finish us excellent, accuracy is phenomenal. I am no expert, but have found no "cons" with mine. Had I purchased this before my Wilson CQB,, I wouldn't have purchased the Wilson.

Oh! The DW CCO is my BABY! I'm the opposite of the above poster - I had my CCO and then bought a Wilson BWC CQB. The Wilson sits in the safe most of the time while the DW CCO rides my hip everywhere. The DW CCO is a SWEET shooter! I have a 2009, but the 2010's are even better in a few respects -
New Duty Treat finish - Kind of a mystery, but supposedly is alot like IonBond
Tool steel internals
Thick barrel bushing
I have a BUNCH of 1911's and for the DW CCO to be in my holster day in and day out says alot about it.
As for availability, it's not so great. They disappear usually as fast as they appear at a dealer of FFL. I was lucky enough to hold one and play with it a little bit before it went out to it's new owner. The '10's are very nice. I picked up a VBOB since the CCO was already spoken for, but if I see another, it will be mine!
Good luck!

Dan Wesson CCO pistols are very very nice. See my attached report on one that I owned, it was a gem, but I sadly sold it to fund several Nighthawk Custom builds.

Like mine a lot. My current carry 1911 and I plan to look at a 2010 CCO whenever they are available to look at. I believe the 2010 are out now, but very hard to find.

I bought my 2009 CCO sight unseen from an online dealer.
It has been perfect with the factory mags. Mine doesn't
like Wilson mags.
Accuracy is excellent.
It is easy to carry and shoot.

I'd find yourself a 2010 and don't look back! :)

Hail Caesar did a great writeup on CCO sized 1911's last year, and I took it to heart. After playing around with numerous models and doing a lot of research, I settled on the CCO. Hard little gun to find, actually.

It's amazing. My favorite gun in the stable. Smooth as butter, great to shoot, excellent to carry. It's one I will NEVER sell.

I agree HC.. at that price I could get into a nice LB or a EB or even a Wilson.. no way would I pay that for a DW..

Just for informational purposes, a 2010 DW CCO can be had for $1,400 or thereabouts. Maybe a little less if you know somebody who knows somebody, who knows the mother of a dealer somewhere. :faint:

I agree and I will not be paying that much for one. They places that I've seen were they were out of stock have been going for about $1300.

I have sn#12x 2009 DW CCO.
It has been somewhat of a "problem child" for me.:crying:

But,having said that,if I take into account that it likes JUST the factory mags it comes with.And the fact that it took me more than 500 rds to tune the extractor to the point that it would feed and extract reliably enough to fire those mags without a major jam,I wouldn't *****.

But I am.The people at DW have a nice product.But I wonder if they aren't hard pressed to fill orders,And when that happens,details have a tendency to be overlooked.Details like reliability every now and then.

Maybe I am being a spoil sport,but the cult status of DW products is somewhat annoying when you have a problem with your pistol and call the CS people and get told the turnaround time for repair is over 4 weeks because of the small number of employees that they have to build AND repair their products.

Having ranted on like this I have one more thing to say.

I actually like this pistol.:embarassed:
Even though I wouldnt consider using this pistol for the reason for which it was marketed(CCW),it is a accurate 1911 that is comfortable to shoot even though it is light weight.
It just needs more final quality control before it leaves the factory.:dunno:

Just my .02

LOL, none of those items are even remotely needed on a 2010 CCO and they certainly don't add $600 of value to one, IMHO.

That is what I meant by "OUTRAGEOUS". That price is incredible. And I doubt there was little done to it.

No, IMO there is not 6 bills worth of work. Plus I wouldn't buy a thing from CZCustom.
