Chicken & waffles. Sour cream & onion. Peanut butter and chocolate. Two separate and seemingly incompatible entities that inexplicably complement one another, yet don’t appeal to everyone. CZ-USA’s Dan Wesson Elite Carry Officer (ECO) is a concealed carry weapon with a match-grade barrel and a venerable .45 ACP platform chambered in 9mm parabellum. An intriguing combination, but will this seemingly delicious defensive dish leave you with indigestion? . . .
Hey - you ECO owners - how is the reliability of this gun?
I only ask because of a recent Handguns magazine article comparing the STI Escort, Desert Eagle Undercover, Colt Defender and Dan Wesson ECO.
Apparently the ECO came out on top (only 1 shooter had issues with the gun), but all 4 guns had some reliability problems.
I was disappointed to see any reliability issues with the Dan Wesson, however....
I do know that smaller 1911s have more issues than bigger ones, though....
With the popularity of legal concealed carry growing exponentially , which is great by the way, finding the right sidearm to carry is about as important as training. By training, I do not mean just your concealed carry class, that is another article all together.
