Stated to be a competition gun, I figure 9mm for 3-gun or downloaded for ESP and .40 for Limited. Compact is a bone thrown to the tackytickle crowd, no real significance but some sales at far lower cost than Wilson thing.

A .45 would require a whole new set of forgings, maybe even bigger than a CZ97. Not much market.

DWX is to be much less expensive than a STI and a fraction of the price of the small shop match guns. I visualize the CZ TZ smiths studying up on 1911 triggers and the 1911 guys trying to get in tune with a cam track.

I have been strongly looking at the 97bd again. Had one several years ago, and don't think I gave it the proper chance. Now I would enhance it adding the bushing and doing the spring changes and tune up myself and I think it could be a whole different ball game. Since the DWX is more of a competition gun.

I can see what you mean about not much market for the .45 but, a die hard traditionalist could hope lol.. I do see myself dabbling back into the 97 though at some point in the near future. Seen where gunbroker had a deal on 3 of the newer versions for $699 heck of a price out the door. It's not that the first one didn't intrigue or excite me, it's just that I think I was thrown by the weight, the grip and the reach since I have a smaller grip than some. But, since have found my way around that, and perhaps putting a little more of an undercut on the trigger guard may solve some of that issue for me.

Not sure why CZ seems that they have to put all of these loud colors on a gun, but hey it appears to work for them. But besides that I already have a CSO TSO so I think at this point my CZ void has been filled and I already have a EDC X9L so my double stack hole is filled as well. Personally I'm looking more towards even more 1911s which are much more appealing in my opinion.

That compact is potentially a fine carry option. Just one issue... no rail.
I was just checking this out. If you look closely at their web page, it's buried in there that you can get the compact with or without a rail.

I'm really liking this gun a lot. @Steve Owens , can this slide be milled for an RMR or Holosun ( same mount). It's duty treated. I'm not sure if it might possibly chip during the cutting. The other thing I don't know is if the dimensions of the slide are true to a standard 1911 . What do you think?
