    My fellow Addicts.
    So after a long and anxious wait of 8 &1/2 months my Dan Wesson Custom Government Vigil in 38 Superb has finally arrived!
    It has not been to the range as the work schedule has delayed that experience for another post to come, shortly I hope.
    I could hardly believe my eyes when I received the email from Alice Poluchova as Keith had told me (The President of CZ/Dan Wesson herself) that my pistol was on its way.
    I am totally in awe with the quality and appearance of this gun and can hardly wait to get some rounds down the pipe.
    The build sheet requests are as follows:

    1: Vigil in 5 in government w/anodized alloy frame and Duty Treat slide
    2: 38 Super ramped match barrel, in Duty Treat
    3: Ball cuts in slide
    4: Clark Style raised and serrated slide (I think 50 LPI)
    5: Tactical Heine style straight 8 tritium sights, with serrated rear face
    6: Medium length solid black adjustable stop trigger
    7: 4lb trigger release
    8: Flush cut and counter bevel barrel
    9: Phase II Dehorn of complete gun including controls (I like this)
    10: Standard 25 LPI front strap and MSH
    11: High solid memory grip safety bump
    12: 3 tuned DW SS flat bottom magazines (9rd)
    13: 1 tuned extra extractor
    14: 1 extra recoil spring
    15: DW Standard Logo Full size wood grips (Will Change to Black VZ soon!)
    The DW black bag was an extra I didn't expect!
    Note: I requested an all black gun but,Keith said he did not have a trigger in black for this build.
    (thats ok)
    There is a definite difference in color of frame and slide in some photos but it's hardly noticeable to the real eye. It's the way the anodize and Duty Treat take to the camera.
    I apologize for the terrible photos.

    Found it on E Bay for very reasonable cost. I posted on it about a month or so ago.

    Thought I’d show you all this one with the new VZs I picked up from @ZoidMeister here lately.
    Great look and feel.
    Thank you Z. :usa:
