    This is interesting: https://danwessonfirearms.com/product/dwx/

    It started as an experiment — a grand melding of Dan Wesson and CZ pistols. Borrowing the crisp single action fire control group of a DW 1911 and combining it with the ergonomics and capacity of a CZ, the resulting pistol emerged as something great.

    I'm sure it's an amazing pistol, but it makes a Hipoint look pretty...

    It kind of looks like a transformer. You hit the slide stop and mag release together and *flip* *slip* *flop* it's a vape mod.

    Keith of CZ/Dan Wesson posted this. A compact version is also being released. Seems like a DW version of the Wilson EDC-X9 which now also comes in a full-size variant.

    Good morning DW people. I have held off commenting until the compact was introduced and I know you have lots of questions.

    Please be sure to visit our website, as many of your questions can be answered there.

    We are very excited to bring you the DWX product line, this is just the beginning. It has been two years in the making and we could not get it out soon enough. [​IMG]

    We plan to start making deliveries first quarter on 9mm's.

    Some things that are not listed that should be noted. As per all Dan Wesson's' there are no MIM parts in these guns. Any parts that were shared with CZ were upgraded, with exception to springs, pins and rear sights and magazines.

    The Compact ships with a single sided safety however we do have ambi's available and the safeties are interchangeable between the full size and compact, just like single stack 1911. The full size ships with an ambi and single sided safeties available.

    The mag release is specific to the gun however, both are ambidextrous.

    The compact grip is the same size as a compact CZ-75 however, we designed the gun to use full size 75 magazines. This makes the gun just a little larger than the ECO with the ability to hold 15 rounds with a flush magazine.

    If you live in a less than free state, like myself, 10 round versions will become available.

    Triggers are similar to a 2011 trigger however are specific to the model, we will have many additional colors, lengths and shapes available to suit your needs.

    Holsters should also be available at time of release.


    Keith DW

    Forgive me on the mistype. I've got a lot going on here and just tried to reach out when I could. The compact comes with flush compact mags but can use any 75 mag.

    The full size uses the PO9 magazines for added capacity.

    Triggers can be changed to suit your taste.

    The trigger is completely different - 1911 straight-pull style vs a pivoting DA/SA style.

    I dig it. Could do without the racegun colored trigger, but other than that, it looks great to me.
