    Quick! Someone talk me out of buying one! OK, fine! Tell me about them. I have had a bunch of 10mms and a CBOB 10mm and 5 inch DW so I might need a 6 inch version. Any cons?

    NO LONGER Offering a pristine Bruin, I bought it new and it has never been fired outside of the factory. Many of my guns have not been because of self imposed stay at home for about 2 years or so, but staying in did not stop my addictive adding to the stash. I have changed the MSH to a S&A but...

    Gentlemen I have been looking at several options just wanted to see if you guys had and personal experience. For the range/outdoors camping and sometimes carry. Looked at DW, Fusion and Colt Combat but would have to adjust the Mainspring housing to make it bobtail($200-$300). Thoughts? Thanks...

    DW has two SKUs for the 10mm Bruin in Duty Finish: 01880 and 01880LE. Would one of you gents tell me what’s different about the LE, or point me toward a source where I can learn?
  6. General 1911 talk
    I admit it, I don’t know much about the gun. What kind of feed ramp on the barrel does the DW 10mm Bruin have? Is it Clark/Para, standard or Wilson/Nowlin? I want to get a threaded barrel.

    The Bruin has 400 rounds thru it, 100% trouble free. I have used Sig ,Freedom Munitions and Underwood ammo. My favorite target/plinking ammo is Freedom Munitions (29 cents each) This is a definite “keeper” Dressed up with SGM grips

    Bruin is less than a week old. The first 50 rounds (S&B 180 grain) , then 200 rounds of Freedom Munitions 180 grain FMJFN and no failures of any type The gun is very accurate and beautifully made and finished . Compares favorably with my Wilson Combat and Nighthawk Talon The only negative is...

I worked the slide 300 cycles and dry fired it anumber of times. Trigger is sweet ,short take up and...

    Absolutely I have been bitten by the 10mm bug. I'm looking to trade either or both guns for a long slide 10mm 1911. Something higher end than the Bruin. I bought both guns new, so all factory items are included. The STI is unfired (but lightly handled by me) and the DW Bruin has less than...

    I haven't been posting because my wife had a total knee replacement and that takes a lot of my time. But during that time I bought a 10mm Bruin. I really love the gun especially the front sight. Shoot's great. I did have fail to battery twice, on the first and second mag. No big deal needs more...

    I bought a brand new Bruin 6" 10mm a while ago and found out two disturbing features about this pistol that place it in to the category of the Ruger Mark-III .22 pistol. THIS SIMPLE DESIGN CHANGE MADE THIS PISTOL A PAIN IN THE ASS! JOHN MOSSES WOULD WHUP SOMEBODY! The designers saw fit to add a...

    Just picked up the newest addition to the collection! A Dan Wesson 10mm Bruin. :) Walked into the "local" gun shop ordered up a 4472 and Edward tells me that the instant check system crashed! :( He get's it back up and we are back in business. Then my State Senator Randy Baumgardner walks in...

    Anyone have a line on the Dan Wesson Model #01880 Bruin 10mm in Duty Coat? "All Black"
  17. General 1911 talk
    Does anyone have a Dan Wesson Bruin 10mm? Anyone handled or shot one of these pistols? Need to have some opinions. Chip in if you have shot any other 10 mm with a SIX INCH barrel, such as STI, Night Hawk, Guncrafter, etc. :)
