I feel the same about the ecp and TCP. I love both my ecos but I would have preferred them without the tri top. The serrations atop help distract my eyes from the tri top thankfully. The Silverbacks and Valors were very popular models. The CCO at least have a replacement and with checkering. If I did not already have 2 of them, I would get a vigil cco.I hate to say it, but as big of a Dan Wesson Fan as I have been, I too feel like (CZ) has made some pretty bad decisions concerning where their line up is going.. I can understand a few models maybe weren't doing what they had hoped, but man, they've discontinued 4 pistols in their line up and every one of them as far as I can tell were popular models. And the things they have chosen, the ECP, TCP, This "Jalopy" imo.. and letting go of their flagship model, makes you wonder what marketing Genius come up with that business plan.. I was initially excited about the ECP as I had mentioned just a few months before they announced a bull barrel pistol, that I'd like to see them come out with one. If I knew it was going to be at the expense of some other very fine offereings, I would of told em to keep em. Then I just didn't dig the design of the ECP as a Tri-top is just not everyone's flavor. Oh, well I guess we will see if they come to their senses. My bet is if they don't want to lose it, they better re-introduce the Valor, and something comparable to the Valkyrie..
