Bought a New 1911 Pistol Today

Dropped Ms Tejun off at the airport this morning to go on an out of town trip and by noon I'd bought a new pistol on Gunbroker

A Dan Wesson Vigil CCO in 9mm. It has an alumuminum Compact (Officers) Frame with a Commander Slide.


This just proves I cannot be left unsupervised

Congratulations, DW makes some nice guns. If I’m not mistaken that’s a new model.

Yes, it is a new model for 2018. This one was actually #2 on my To buy list. Iíve been searching for a DW ECO in 9mm. Theyíve been out a while and I had held one when I was picking up my Wilson Combat. There were a bunch on GB several weeks ago and today, only one with a price above what I wanted to pay. Talked to the folks at DW and they said they were planning another production run but might be a few months before that happens so I went to number 2.

Iíve set a goal to have a 1911 in 3Ē, 3.5Ē, 4Ē, 4.25Ē & 5Ē. With this purchase today, I have one left to get (3.5Ē) and that will be the ECO.

Had the same feeling too until I bought my Pro Carry two tone in 9mm. I can blow a 4 inch hole in a target at 7 yards faster than any 1911 I own. It just drops right back in no matter how fast you go. Minimal muzzle flip.
You'll have to try one.
