I have it's brother. The Kodiak. The difference is a rail, magwell and a bull barrel. I actually went to purchase the Bruin. I had been in to look at it a couple times. Trying to decide between that and a Springer TRP. My reason for getting the Kodiak was my dealer sold out of the Bruin's. And I do like a rail, but I like a 1911 without a rail even better.
A long slide 10mm shoots sweet. The first time I shot mine I was hooked. This Kodiak got me started on 1911's. This is one I never plan to sell and I've sold a bunch.
Bought one back in the fall of 2017. It was about $1.8K (before tax) from a LGS. Not seeing a gap under the front sight on mine. Lovely pistol. The one thing is getting the nice looking curved recoil spring plug back in after a field strip and clean.
What I never saw was one in 45ACP. I think DW built some but all I ever saw was 10mm.
I just acquired one, too. It's no trouble to disassemble/reassemble, and it was a little over $1800, too. You can regularly find them at iammo.com. A LGS also links to a retail seller through their website, and I see them come up there often enough, too. It's where I bought this one. It was an impulse buy, more or less. I did not have a 10 mm. I was looking for DW Guardians in .45 and .38 +P, which come up there from time to time, too. The Bruins stick around for a few days, but a Guardian will be gone, if you wait until you get home from work to make a payment.
