    You mean there's such a beast where you wouldn't have to use a paper clip on the shorter bull barrels like in the ECO?

    I don't remember there being a choice. I just bought the one to fit a 4" bull barrel.

    Looked at the Dawson web-site. Don't see one listed for a 4" 45acp.

    They are not caliber specific.
    If they have the proper length it will work.
    Like most of Dawson's stuff it is well thought out and well made FWIW
