    Hello Fellow Addicts, After much deliberation, soul searching, and mixed feelings on this, I am going to sell off all but a handful of guns. I have some debt that is unrelated to firearms, and it would be much smarter to pay this debt off rather than have these just sit in my safe unused. I...

    I get the mad rush on guns these days, but one can still find the industry standards like Glocks, SA's, S&W's, Ruger's, etc. But for the life of me cannot find a single Dan Wesson Vigil Commander in 45 acp in stock anywhere. I have searched the ends of the internet to no avail. I was starting to...

    After finally getting a bull barrel Valor Commander, I started looking for the other DW on my list - a LASD roll marked Specialist in 9mm. Thought it was going to take a lot longer and be a bit more difficult, but, after a couple of calls and a small amount of paperwork (so far) I have one on...

    I recently bought a 9mm Vigil and I am not overly impressed with the Dan Wesson mags that came with it. I could tell when I loaded the first mag that they were going to give me trouble. They did. I am going to buy some Wilson ETM's to replace them.

    I picking up my first new (to me) Dan Wesson 9mm Vigil Commander from my FFL tomorrow. I have read that there are lubes, cleaners,and solvents that may cloud the Duty finish. Right now my choices seem to be FP-10 (I use FP-10 as a great lube but it sucks as a cleaner), WD-40, or Kroil. I use...

    I’ve wanted one of these since they first came out and thought a regular Commander would scratch the itch. Obviously, it didn’t and I finally decided to pick one up before the supply dries up. Couple of quick pics after bringing it home this afternoon:

    Ok so, I ordered a DW Vigil CCO yesterday, super excited and can't wait for it to get here. I was suggested to get a Stan Chen SI magwell, they look awesome but I was wondering the real benefits? a bit extra grip length, and will 8 round full size fit flush with this magwell? or am I limited to...

    Hello all! I'm about to pick up a new-model Dan Wesson V-Bob in black Duty Finish. This is a compromise, as both my shop and 2 neighboring shops have assured me that getting a stainless would be unlikely in the near future. I had been considering having just the slide brought down to...

    As the title states, if you could buy 1 Dan Wesson in 2021, would you buy a used Guardian, or a NIB duty coat Valor VBob? Price difference pre-haggling is $150, meaning the NIB Valor Bob is $150 more. I don’t mind waiting on shipping for the used Guardian, and the Valor VBob would be a long...

    Got a DW TCP and now looking for a leather and/or kydex holster that will accommodate the slightly unconventional slide with a light. I prefer open top, open muzzle at bottom, a sweat guard and on leather a tension screw. Now that's my fantasy probably but I could use some input. I'm looking...

    Considering how the prices on DW's has been going up and up, considering whether it might be worth it to just have the custom shop build the gun I want. I basically want a customized Valkyrie CCO and they are either sky high or unavailable in 9mm... If they are used and going at $1500 plus...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, Continuing to attempt to downsize my collection, so I'm going to list this Dan Wesson CCO in 45acp. I took this on a trade, but really don't need it. I have not fired it. It's an older CZ build with an estimated 300 rounds through it. I have no confirmation of that, but...
  15. Beginner's Corner
    Hi, After reading through the manual for my new DW PM-C and watching several YouTube videos it seems cleaning and lubrication before initial use is necessary. Is firing pin and extractor removal and cleaning/lube needed at this point? My understanding is it can be challenging for seasoned users...

    From all of the glowing reviews that I read here I decided to give a DW 1911 a whirl. I just picked up a PM-C in .45acp this afternoon. My initial reaction is very good. It's a very tight pistol. I've field stripped it, cleaned it up. That's when I remembered that some specific lube is to be...

    A week or so ago, I started a thread about my gift to myself this year, a DW Valor, Limited Edition, blued slide and Case Color Hardened frame. I received many kudos from fellow Addicts and I appreciated all of them. I mentioned that I had ordered some Mammoth Ivory grips from @SKGRIPS and...

    I acquired this 1911 knowing it had a few bugs with the intent to learn more about the innards of the 1911 but most importantly making it run.

    I have a DW Guardian that I bought used. It was very clean, excellent condition, came with original everything. It didn't look like it needed lubing when I received it, and knowing it had already been broken in I figured it was good to go. Took it out a few times and fired about 75 rounds, no...
