    Sounds pretty good to me, especially since it's had the XS sights added.

    It was DW's low-end gun of the time and sold for ~$750. It's also from the Bob Serva (Fusion) era and has an EE, so with the 3 strikes against it, I'd pass.
    I know that shichidan bought an older DW that had a bunch of problems (original owner had the paperwork with it) and IMO can still use some work.

    here's his DW.

    If you were to buy it, i'd offer less than $500.

    It's a tough call. While I like DW Pointmen (I have a 2010 model PM7-45), I like the newer ones after 2010 with forged frames and tool steel parts. Here's mine:

    A couple big strikes against that one for me is all of the work that's been done on it and the wear. I'm with Quack on this.

    Nope, I agree with the others. I wouldn't even pay $400 for that.

    I've seen very few Dan Wessons from the BS days that I'd spend $600 on.

    A co-worker has one of the first run Razorbacks. It is without a doubt one of the worst 1911 pistols anyone ever cobbled together.

    Well, I retract my first post. I didn't realize that the early DW's were junk. I'm just glad that my 2 DW's are new models. :tongue:

    I agree w/ Quack on this. I had a chance to trade on of my pistol for a similar DW, and I didn't make the trade. Shows how bad the rep on this was.
