Dan Wesson Firearms, a name that harkens back to the heyday of firearm development in the mid-19th century, continues to produce classic semi-automatic handguns based on Browning’s famed M1911 design. These new-manufacture guns feature modern modifications and exhibit exceptional workmanship. For 2022, Dan Wesson offers its Tactical Compact Pistol (TCP) 1911 pistol, in either 9 mm Luger or .45 ACP.
The Tactical Compact Pistol (TCP) takes cues from the Dan Wesson's Enhanced Compact Pistol (ECP) and goes a step beyond to provide increased utility for the end user. Though the TCP can be easily concealed, it is important to note the left-side safety location and addition of a Picatinny rail, which presents the home defender with a single-slot rail option for accessories should a light, laser or training aid be required.
The TCP features a 4” ramped barrel with a bull contour, flat-wire recoil spring, stainless-steel slide and forged alloy frame. To save weight, the aluminum alloy frame contains a traditional butt and standard-profile backstrap, however, Dan Wesson provides a flared magazine well to make reloading easier. A duty-grade finish is applied for exterior protection.
Equipped with a tri-top slide, the TCP also wears a beveled muzzle and glare-reducing top rib. Sights are drift adjustable and feature the brass-bead-post and U-notch-rear arrangement. An enlarged and checkered magazine release button comes with it, too, and the TCP wears a unique set of G10 stocks with angled serrations for purchase. MSRP for the Tactical Compact Pistol is $1,809 (9 mm Luger) or $1,845 (.45 ACP).
