Has anyone seen the new DW ECO ?

I have been looking for a new 1911 for cc. This one looks promising to me, but I would rather have it in ss.

The ECO is about 3-4 months away.

Just checked out the spec's on the website. The ACR I wanted to get this year may have to wait. I really want to get one of these. I love the CCO as a carry platform. The only thing holding me back from the DW CCO was the scalloped frontstap/MSH, I prefer checkering. This look's like a winner.

That thing makes my pants tight. Probably more expensive than new suspension in my dirt bike though.

Quack, does anyone make a true lightweight CCO in 9mm. I would love to find one.

Agreed, I have one and love it but wish it was lighter.

Ok, guess I will stick with my Colt Officers. Sure looks nice though.

Well, street price will be lower I'm sure. Also between the duty coat, custom details, 15,000 round count spring and fitting, the price is well worth it. I have two DW's. My CBOB was almost a steal at 900 when I purchased it before the price went up and my CCO is absolutely the best pistol I've owned for carry since I started carrying concealed in 1998. (lots of different pistols).

I wish DW would make their CCO in 9mm and with a checkered front strap.

I'd have probably preferred checkering to the front strap on my CCO, but it's still a great pistol. DW makes some very tight slides with zero barrel link play and tight firing pin retainers with no clocking on the extractor. I own several and they're great. I liked the a lot more before the price increase, however.

What would the biggest differences be between the ECO 9 and an EMP?

Price. Plus, ECO has a checkered front strap, single side safety, a rounded butt and a better finish. All features I prefer. And would be willing to pay more for. :)

Also, non EMP specific parts. Way better for swapping out parts.

I wish they had better specs on the ECO web page.

I guess the butt of the ECO is rounded. I don't know anyone that prefers a square butt over a round one....:rofl:

I think the dual safety would be an advantage in a CCW or BUG gun.

I'm on my iPad, so it's kind of difficult to compare, but what are the differences between the ECO and CCO?

Shorter barrel. 3.5(ECO) vs 4.25(CCO) . ECO is an Officers sized 1911 and CCO is a commander length on top of officers frame.

Sights. ECO has different sights designed for one handed cocking. CCO has traditional novaks.

ECO will be slightly less in weight.

I notice the DW CCO is going for about $1350 with an MSRP of $1560.

Whats the expected street price of the ECO?

Quack
03-19-2012, 15:12
I'm thinking around $1500

No warranty , I'll pass on that one.

I bought a PM9 from the custom shop. It had to go back to the factory after it's first outing ( not the custom shop) for warranty work. They got it right the first time and all on their dime.
