One-Piece Guide Rod & Flat Recoil Spring

If you're looking for a compact, lightweight and reliable 1911 that beats the competition, look no further than the CZ and Dan Wesson ECO. The ECO, a true single stack Officer-sized 1911 weighing in at only 25 ounces. The ECO wears tritium night sights with CZ's tactical ledge sight on the rear of the 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, with a one piece guide rod and a flat recoil spring that is rated for 15,000 rounds in .45 ACP, unheard of in a production 1911. This recoil system also gives the benefit of a smooth slide for easier operation and less felt recoil. 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 the new slim line DW carry G10 grips really help you hold onto the gun for faster follow-up shots and recoil control. Trigger pull is short and crisp at around 4 pounds.
