I received this from Sterling Archer. Very nice gun. Cleaned end relubricated. Placed in safe and not fired. This gun is a keeper. Missed 2 weeks at work due to back injury. Selling so no bills will be late. See original posting: Sterling Archer ordered this directly from Dan Wesson's Custom Shop. Pistols made in their custom shop receive more attention and are commented on being noticeably more accurate than the production versions. There is not a wiggle to be found anywhere, it is by far the tightest and smoothest gun I've ever owned. This pistol feels wonderful in hand, especially if you like a high grip, and shooting it is a real pleasure. I've fired 925 rounds through it with 0 stoppages or malfunctions. I'm getting out of .45 so I am very sadly selling it. I can't take a good photo of it to save my life. It's a super deep rich black and beyond my skills to capture. White specs are paper towel lint. Please excuse the dog hair in the upper part of the trigger guard, that's not a scratch.

Magwell/MSH You don't often see a magwell on a compact frame but I encourage you to try it. It only adds .25" in height but makes a big difference in feel. If you prefer no magwell or no arch a simple swap and you're set. After receiving the pistol and breaking it in I sent it to Derr Precision for a little machining work. Since I had no plans on ever selling it I decided to have a couple parts added in. The factory bushing was finger turnable so I had a second one hand-fit tight. I also had a couple Wilson Bullet-Proof extractors tuned up. Needless to say this package is setup to run, and run, and run, with no maintenance down time.

If you prefer stainless it's just a quick bead blast away. Never let it be said Cerakote covers imperfections, if you look at the below picture you'll see some type of line. Either done in production or when Derr was truing up the cuts, I don't know. It isn't visible when stainless but Cerakote found it. There is also a knick around the slide stop hole. I would personally just use a little marker on it and make it disappear but didn't want to hide anything in the add.

Just wish I hadn't thrown that flier or it would be under an inch. I'm in this $3,500 with all work, parts and accessories. Sale price is $2,000. I'm taking a $1,500 hit so the price is firm and you're paying shipping.
