    Looking for some help from some 1911 pals. I purchased this DW XSS last week and cannot find any info about it at all! I called DW and they say they think it was a test model. Any help would be appreciated .

    I wonder if Bob Serva at Fusion Firearms could tell you anything. He sold DW to CZ.

    Looks to me to possibly be a precursor to the PM line of pistols. The pm9 7 and so forth.. What caliber? .45acp I presume.... A lot of the guns done while Bob was there was made with S&W machined frames and slides. Bob Now Fusion Firearms would be sure to give you the skinny on it. I am positive of that. Just PM him and ask. I had a Patriot a while back that I went to him with and it was very similar to this style but with an external extractor.

    100% correct! I got ahold of Bob and he confirmed it was a prototype for the new XS sight system. It was one of six produced with all high end parts. You guys are the best, thanks for the help!!
