I have a PM-9 that I purchased in Jan 2019 and the serial number starts with 19. The new PM-9 has changed front and rear cocking serrations, more course than the current model. Front sight appears to be the same as mine, fibre optic and rear sight Bomar style adjustable like mine. Can't tell in detail if the top of the slide has changed although it says the Clark style rib is in place. Guess the best way to determine the changes is to handle one. I have over 11,000 rounds thru my PM-9 and it has been trouble free. Excellent 1911 especially considering the price.

Another change for a lot of the new DW are using a "standard" slide stop instead of the "ledge/tactical" slide stops. I don't dislike the standard slide stop, but I do like the ledge for slide release. What's really strange is the PM-45 still shows the ledge style, but the PM-9 has now started using the standard slide stop?

Looks as if the top rail has now changed to a flat milled surface in lieu of the raised and serrated Clark Rib they used previously.

Is it me or does the Heritage looks a lot like the old Valor?

Overall I like the changes Dan Wesson has made.
For some reason the after getting a few railguns, the Specialist is speaking to me.
The Heritage is now a fantastic gun for customizing. The new Valor will appeal to
the southpaws now. Personally I liked the old Valor better. I think it looks more like a Colt now which is ok.

The DWX will sell like hot cakes!
My faith is being restored in my favorite production 1911 maker.

I miss my old heritage, traded away in some 2011 deal. A sad day in mudville.
Might have to get another one just cause!
