Second Pointman 7-45!




I own a lot of guns. None of them has ever impressed me quite as much as my Dan Wesson Pointman 7-45. I like it so much, well, I bought another one.

These guns are kept in very limited production by Dan Wesson for the California market because otherwise Series 70-type platforms, unless grandfathered in like the PM7, cannot be sold here. Since California is about 25-30% of the US gun market, that keeps the PM7 in production and I am glad that it does!

Here is a picture of my 2d PM7 (now my son and I can shoot them together) with brand-new Crimson Trace laser grips.

I feel that way about the Classic Bobtail. Nice pick up! I have yet to see one in stock here in the Bay Area, If or when I do, I'm sure I'd make a move to own it!

Congrats on the 2nd PM7!!

Hi Redlegvzv ,

I also live in Huntington Beach, CA and am looking to buy a 1911. I found out that the Colt Gold Cup I was interested in is not on the CA list, but I could somehow go for the single shot conversion. I was also looking at the sellers offerings and found out that they do have the PM7 available for $1599,
i.e.
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=283951020

They also have the Black Valor which I am also interested in for $1599 and will need to do the single shot conversion.
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=283663220

Now, I only plan on using this for target practice, so the PM7 will suit me fine, I imagine as it seems line the PM7 is made for target practice more than the Valor, correct?

I am getting back into shooting after 30+ years. Used to shoot in Illinois where I grew up and reloaded my own 38's, 44's and 45's. Bought my Dad a 45 Gold Cup back in 1975 when he turned 45. For my 45th B'Day I bought a Sig P220 (was highly recommended by a friend in the business). I don't like it for a target pistol and have decided to sell it for a 1911.

With all that being said, where did you buy your 2nd PM7?

And since you have the GC , it sounds like you like your PM7 better?
Is the trigger pull much better on the PM7?

I did not know Turners (in FV?) sold the PM7's & you got your first one there for $1500?

Thanks,
Scott

I know this is a gun forum but in this specific case...I think I would rather have the Kate Upton model.

I am so torn.
Can you put a bikini on a PM7?

Congrats.
Love those DW's
