    So took my DW CCO (.45acp) and DW ECO (9mm) to the range this AM. I had to replace the recoil spring in the ECO...had a few Failure to Return to Battery, so replaced what was in it. Couldn't find a 18lb flat wire recoil spring for a 3.5" 1911 anywhere...so ordered a 22lb recoil spring for a Wilson Sentinel from EGW and cut a few coils down until the gun ran without issue. Worked like a charm!

    So here are some quick shots when I remembered to take some photos:

    DW ECO: 10 yds slow fire with AGUILA 124 grain

    DW ECO: 10 yards "quick" fire (1 shot per second) with CCI Blazer 124gr

    DW ECO: 12 yards - double taps with CCI Blazer 124gr

    DW CCO: 12 yards "quick fire" (1 shot per second) with Speer Gold Dot 230gr

    DW CCO: 12 yards "quick" fire (1 shot per sec) with WINCHESTER JHP 230gr

    Now to find a good leather OWB holster for the ECO (preferably with about 10 degree forward cant)....

    THanks @Dwe! I need to clean up the right side safeties and the bottom of the arched MSH on the CCO....I had to file and reshape them due to them digging into the web of my hand. I had used a basic flat black Krylon paint for metal...but it didn't stick!! LOL. I have some Flat black Duracoat and an application kit, but waiting to clean up a few more pieces then hit 'em all black so I don't waste too much of the paint.
