There has never been a higher demand for self defense handguns than there is today. The greatest demand is for the smallest, lightest gun available, but this has drawbacks. Generally these guns are difficult to shoot well, lack stopping power and recoil can be a problem. If you can’t hit or stop what you are shooting at, what good is the handgun? We can understand all of these concerns as we face them every day as well. We wanted to give our customers the smallest, lightest gun that we could without sacrificing accuracy, dependability and stopping power.

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. We have taken care of that by using some of the latest technology as well as our background in doing what others say can’t be done. This gun has all the latest and greatest we have to offer.

The ECO wears tritium night sights with our tactical ledge sight on the rear of our lightweight 3.5” slide. The 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 we use 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.

Trigger pull, like all of our 1911s, is short and crisp at around 4 lbs. This helps achieve the accuracy you’ve come to expect from a Dan Wesson.  The frame is anodized aluminum and features an undercut trigger guard and 25 LPI checkering. The mainspring housing is also aluminum with 25 LPI checkering and a rounded bottom corner for concealability and shooting comfort. These features coupled with the Ed Brown high ride grip safety and our new slim line DW carry G10 grips really help you hold onto the gun for faster follow-up shots and recoil control. Just like our Guardian, the ECO slide and small parts are treated with our Duty finish and available in both 9mm and .45 ACP. Stopping power is not a concern.

If you’re looking for a compact, lightweight and reliable 1911 that beats the competition, look no further than our ECO. We are confident you won’t be disappointed.

Great gun. Super tight fitting and will definitely need that break in period and. Cleaning every 50 rounds within the first 300 to 500. After that it’s flawless

As always, Buds was great to work with! Now the ECO. What a smooth shooter it is! The sights were dead on out of the box. Recoil is minimal. However, I did have some issues with some ammo I had. It did not like the Freedom Munitions hollow points I had. FTEs and FTFs. Just to make sure, I tried some Hornady and some Blazer Brass and both shot flawlessly. I am extremelyt happy with this purchase.

Wow. Just... wow. I got lucky seeing this in 9mm on Bud's at a great price, and in the cart it went. I field stripped the ECO as soon as I got it from my FFL, and gave it a once-over and lubing to get it ready for today's break-in period. The fit-and-finish on the ECO is everything I read about. The sights are dead-on. The trigger is fantastic right out of the gate. The first 50 rounds were just perfect... my first three shots (after what had already been a long range trip of sighting in long guns) were in a clover-leaf pattern, and I'd consider myself an average marksman. Recoil?? In 9mm, this ECO is like shooting a squirt gun. If I have any knock on the gun it's that I need a paper clip to take it down, but it's a pretty simple procedure so it's almost hard to call it a criticism. I'll continue with the recommended break-in procedure before I consider it ready for carry... but it's hard to say it's not ready for carry now! I know I'm in the "new gun honeymoon" phase, but I am impressed at how such a neat and tidy little package can offer this kind of smooth and soft-shooting accuracy.

This officer's size 1911 from Dan Wesson is great!!. I have fired about 500 rounds at the range with this 1911. The accuracy and reliability were what you'd expect from a semi-custom 1911. Custom level quality at a much better price!! This is an excellent option for concealed carry. Bud's Gun shop had the best price I could find and the service was excellent as usual.

This is my 2nd Dan Wesson from Buds, I have the Duty treat V-Bob 9mm as well. This ECO is simply superbly built for a lifetime of concealed carry service. Discreetly designed without any flash or gaudiness, just simple elegance and function, and ultra smoothness. This is the $3,000 black tuxedo that never goes out of style whether its NYC, to the Vegas strip to LA. That applies to any Dan Wesson 1911 - they don't have any of the flash or variety of the Kimbers or guns like that. They are more understated, classic, and a little plainer. Also, because they are so tight fitting, they require careful break-in with a little attention to ammunition type in some cases, with careful attention to cleaning and lubing during break-in. These are beautiful, well engineered and crafted guns that will reward this type of care with years of flawless, very accurate shooting. Nothing feels as good in the hand as a 2 pound 1911, right? Thank you Buds for a great deal, fast shipping as always.

Typical Dan Wesson. Tight, well made, great trigger, very nice finish. Had a few stovepipes in the first 150 rounds through the gun, functioning perfectly after that. The trigger is exceptionally nice right out of the box. The ECO has almost no recoil and is a joy to shoot. Very accurate. I believe it's the best shooting handgun I own.

My new Dan Wesson ECO compact 1911 9 mm from Buds is a joy to shoot and a sight to behold. It is light and my accuracy with it is comparative to a full size Dan Wesson 1911. Zero problems with almost 200 rounds through it. I'm used to the thin grips on Dan Wesson's Valor and have ordered a thin set of carbon fiber grips for my ECO to fit my hand better. Kudos to Buds on giving me a great deal and getting it to my FFL in a timely manner.

    Edward - Great to find another Dan Wesson fan, and especially one who who prefers leather to Kydex. I have been using a DeSantis Cozy Partner leather holster for several years. It features a tension device and precise molding for handgun retention. A memory band retains the holster's shape for easy one handed re-holstering. 1 1/2" split belt loop is standard. Must be worn with a belt. Uses 'loops' rather than a 'clip' to secure it on the belt, which I also much prefer. Can't find one in stock here at Buds, but you should be able to run one down fairly easily searching on the internet.

    Most certainly. Dan Wessons are top notch, in every way, and definitely strong enough for the +P ammo.

    Policy is 7 business days or less. I have received 1 handgun in 2days. Several in 3-4days and 1 in 6or7 days. But its only business days that they ship.
