    I think it's time to replace the flat wire recoil spring on my 2012 DW ECO 9mm. Anyone know where I can find this? I already called CZ USA and they said I needed to speak with Genny. She's always been very helpful in the past, but she still hasn't returned either my voice mail or my email. Any...

    Hello everyone, I’m new here and am a 1911 addict. Currently I only have 3 but I will most definitely be add more to my collection. I have a Springfield Armory 45acp 1911, Colt Government Model fully engraved 45acp and a Dan Wesson 9mm 1911. I recode in WA State. Here are some pics of what I...

    First of all, the first and third photos are from yesterday and the middle from this morning. I have gone on at length about my A2 and how well it shoots. Lately I have been comparing flat and curved triggers, with no surprise at all. I am simply confirming what I was 95% sure of, which is that...

    Not loving the grips on my Dan Wesson ECO, what has anyone replaced these with?

    Can the slide on a Dan Wesson ECO be milled for RDS?

    Working to put a 38 super barrel in a 9mm Guardian. Anyone know specifics on the ramp type or if the Wilson ramped barrel will fit? Thanks.

    Come to realize I sometimes enjoy chasing guns more than I have time to shoot most… Picked up more base guns recently than I think there are smiths taking work lol. Thinking about sending a bunch of Colts and Dan Wessons down the road and picking up 1-2 nicer 1911s that I keep finding myself...

    Local LGS. Things are returning to normal. Look at all those DW.

    I am one of the lucky few that have been receiving their pistols back from Steve's most recent batch. I ordered this particular pistol direct from the Dan Wesson custom shop and right out of the box it was the epitome of the pistol build that started on a Friday afternoon and was finished on a...

    Don’t know much about this listing, but on the surface looks pretty good for what the seller is asking. It doesn’t give caliber in the title. I thought it may be a 45 ACP, which is why I read further and learned it is a 38 Super. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/929533241

    I just purchased a Dan Wesson Valor commander in 9mm. I would like opinions, advice on the best most reliable magazines available. I know this has been discussed many times. I have read the threads but would really like to hear your thoughts and experiences particularly from those who shoot...

    I recently got the urge to own a Commander in Super that'll be 60% range toy and 40% carry. I'll ultimately end up with an ACW, but lack the patience because I want something now. Options for a Super (or 9mm to convert), non-LW, non-bobtail are pretty slim, so I decided to pick up a really...

    Hi Addicts, I have a question for you Dan Wesson fans out there. My local shop has a beautiful Heritage 45 in stock that’s caught my eye. Battlehook rear sights, fiber optic front, checkered front strap, and single side safety. Gun feels great in hand and checks out. Does anyone have any...

    Ok, this is very uncharted territory for me as I have only been a buyer only for the last several years, but I think it is time for me to find a home for some of my gats that I just can't mesh with. There is nothing wrong functional or appearance wise with them unless denoted but I just don't...

    OK. Here’s my standing eight months after stumbling upon the 1911 obsession. What next? I’m trying to create “breadth” before buying similar models from assorted builders.

    Long time gun owner and carrier, but brand new to 1911s. I joined the forum just a couple weeks ago maybe? Just took possession of my very first 1911! I was searching for a carry gun / bear gun for fishing out west later this summer. (I know this is a hot topic, and I should probably be...

    I likes to shoot some high horsepower loads in my 10mm so upon the advice of Endre at DW (head gunsmith/tech guy) I will swap out the factory spring for a 24lb or a 28lb depending. It seems that the force of those springs is causing my slidestop to peen the slide where they meet up upon slide...

    Hey All, Here I go again... got trigger happy on GunBroker with a S&W 66 revolver, at a time where I should be happy with what I already have, ha! Also, I have an Alchemy Custom Prime Compact on order, so can live without this CCO. Super nice Dan Wesson Vigil CCO with around 200 rounds fired...
