    just picked this one up yesterday. This is my second 1911. My first was a Custom II that I loved and have regretted selling for the last year (you can’t just replace ten years of honest wear!). This Dan Wesson Heritage is just as well made as I had hoped. My Kimber was tight, but this one is fit incredibly well for a production 1911. The barrel hood fitment is really impressive. The barrel to bushing fit is really good and the bushing fro slide fitment is tight, but still allows me turn it with my fingers. Trigger is perfect. Seems to be around 3.5#.
    I will be refinishing it at some point. The rough stainless is not my favorite finish, but it is very well done. If anyone knows a lot about surface prep prior to PVD finishing, I’d love to learn all I can before I do it. I want to get a medium polish on the flats and a fine satin on the rounds.

    The grips are English walnut from Sarge’s grips. Got them in maybe 2010, or so. Was sad to see that thefinergrain.com is no longer up and running.

    Question for those with a lot of Dan Wesson experience. Are the magazines supplied with DW’s any good?

    My last remaining DW is a TCP in 45 and I’m still waiting for the holster to come in from Southern Trapper so I can carry it. EB7257FF-69E7-45BF-B765-69472FB1EFBC.jpeg

    I have never had a problem with all the ones that have come with my guns. For the last 4 or 5 years they have been Metalform mags before that they were Checkmates. Both very good mag manufacturers.

    Yes. This one is mat blue. I love the finish. I’m on the fence about the arched msh. And I will replace the commander length spring plug with a govt length at some point. Honestly, I don’t know what took me so long to buy another DW.

    Found this on GB early this morning, luckily the guy was local and made we arrangements to transfer it at lunchtime. 8-3 003.jpg 8-3 004.jpg I did have one but it's one that doesn't get shot. I have read these are nice shooters so I jumped on it so I could add it to the line up. 8-3 010.jpg
