    I bought this yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased with my choice. Fit and finish is outstanding and the trigger is perfect. Officers alloy frame and commander slide. Got it at Guncrafters in Salem. Ken

    Welcome to the DW 1911 club. Awesome pistols! I have an older DW CBOB that is my primary carry piece. There's lots of good info on DW 1911's at the 1911Forum - Powered by vBulletin . Keith from DW posts there quite often and is quite helpful for any DW questions you may have.

    That is pretty- very jealous. From what I hear, you made a great choice on a compact 1911.

    CZ bought out the guy who started up the DW line again several years ago. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think the guy that started up the DW line with 1911's again went on to found Fusion after CZ bought the DW rights from him.

    Is my history correct anyone?

    Correct, Bob Serva left Dan Wesson and founded Fusion firearms.

    BTW that CCO looks awesome.

    Daniel Baird Wesson, along with Horace Smith, founded what is known today as Smith & Wesson firearms. Although the original Dan Wesson had nothing to do with the founding of the Dan Wesson firearms company that made their model 15 revolver series with interchangeable barrels, I found a link with some interesting history on the original Dan Wesson revolvers and the company.

    Dan Wesson Revolvers

    I had a, I believe, 2nd Gen DW revolver. It was right after they did away with the "Buck Rogers" looking barrel nut (my brother still has one of the first gen revolvers).

    Hope you find this interesting.
