    Dan Wesson have announced a new Dan Wesson Tactical Compact Pistol, describing the pistol as having “great conceal-ability and superior accuracy in a nimble 1911.” Originally introduced in mid-2018, the TCP is available in 9x19mm and .45 ACP with both alloy framed pistols weighing in at 32oz.

    Here’s Dan Wesson’s announcement in full:

    Combining a match-grade bull barrel and their new railed, alloy frame, the new Dan Wesson Tactical Compact Pistol (DW TCP) delivers that sweet combination of conceal-ability and shoot-ability. It’s an all-day-carry handgun for those who prefer the 1911 platform and demand great accuracy in a carry pistol.

    The DW TCP features a compact, stainless steel slide that is beveled in a tri-top design, creating a smoother profile for easy, snag-free holstering and drawing. Aggressive slide serrations make loading and unloading the DW TCP a pleasure.

    A top rib on the DW TCP slide helps reduce glare, plus it features Dan Wesson’s new U-notch rear sight with a whopping .156-inch-wide notch. Paired with a brass-beaded front sight, this sight combination puts a shooter eyes on target fast.

    For superior accuracy, the DW TCP sports a four-inch-long bull barrel. The barrel features a 30-degree crown and is flush cut for easier disassembly. There’s also a tactical rail under the barrel so a light or laser can be attached.

    The TCP’s grips are also new from Dan Wesson, with a tapered profile that is slim at the top and full-width at the bottom, giving shooters with smaller hands an easier reach to the trigger. With three facets that mimic the distinctive slide, the serrated features on the grip encourage a high, deep grip, as does the undercut trigger guard.

    The grip frame on the TCP, by the way, is full-sized, providing a very stable platform for a shooter’s hands.

    With a similar recoil system to the Dan Wesson ECO pistol, the DW TCP features a flat-wire recoil spring rated for 15,000 rounds–three times the round count of a typical 1911 dual recoil spring set up!

    The Dan Wesson one-piece magwell, flat K-style trigger, and square hammer round out the TCP’s features, while the complete pistol tips the scales at just 32 ounces.

    Available in 9mm Luger, 45 ACP, and done in a Black Duty finish, the DW TCP is at home in a carry holster, on a nightstand or at the range. The Dan Wesson guarantee of quality means the TCP will be on the job and ready for years to come.
