Dan Wesson made the ECO in the past. AFAIK, it was a true officers model (3.5" barrel). Why did they cancel it?

I'm wondering whether they cancelled it due to it not running well or if it wasn't selling.

I dunno, but wish like hell they were still available.

I know @steviesterno16 has one in 9mm, and as far as I remember it runs VERY well.

Because Dan Wesson discontinued everything that’s nice. ??

I’d buy another Discretion right now if I could find one for non gunbroker prices.
I think my first one was right around $1,700 IIRC.

Presumably it wasn't selling. That's generally the reason companies discontinue items. Few companies stop making things that make them a lot of money.

I will also say that I hate DWs current lineup. So ugly. Maybe Colt management wants them to fail. Or it's just what Colt does.

Great carry guns, slim and light, amazing trigger, a perfect carry 1911 I think.

I have one in 9mm.  Never had any issues with it. Great carry gun. I run mine in a Tenicor AIWB holster.  
Gun just disappears in it.

The A2 was a nice pistol, sure wish I would’ve grabbed one when I had the chance.

I believe they did away with the Vigil and Guardian as well?    My Vigil is a sweet shooting gun.

I don't think they are making any officers or CCO guns now.

I was wondering the same about the Dan Wesson CCO recently. Seemed to be a great carry piece but it’s apparently been discontinued for years now.

I think you got it wrong.  CZ bought Colt so it wasn't that Colt bought CZ to run it into the ground.  Although you may be correct in that Colt management may want CZ to fail. I mean Colt seems to want that for their own company so why not spread it around?

I got one in 9mm and .45 when they were available.  Nice guns - can't imagine why they don't still make them as there has got to be a market for these things.

What's the difference between a ECO and a CCO?

I'd love the have a 9mm CCO to match my .45 version.

Both have the officers frame. The CCO had the commander slide (4.25"). The ECO had the original officers slide (3.5").

I'm still resentful about when they discontinued the OG Valor.

Just picked up a brand new unfired, not even handled in  the box 9mm version. Built in 2021. Paid 1100 out the door from a local dealer. Saw it on gunbroker, went to the dealer and bought it before anyone could bid. Attachment Attached File
