Question about models




I am looking to do a trade with a guy for a Dan Wesson 1911.. He says its a "Patriot Marksmen" from around 2003.. But i can find "patriots" and or "pointmen marksmen" but no "patriot marksmen" would someone be able to clear this up for me?

Patriot Marksman had the fixed sights. The Patriot Expert had adjustable. No other difference. Both were were top of the line.

Take care,

From the 2003 catalog:



The bottom one shows the fixed rear sight of the PTM-B

S= Stainless, B= Blue

Hi

I guess I am a little confused concerning DW models

I just ordered a DW pointman marksman SKU DW01964FC online. Product code
D WES PM MARK 45ACP 5" STS AS. It was avertised as having adjustable sights. The AS in the product code seems to confirm it. Also it is pictured as having front serrations however a burb on CZ custom describes it as not having front serrations.

Which it it ?. Also can anyone tell me the difference between this and the pointman seven. I am told the marksman is sleeker than the seven but what does that mean ?

BTW this is my first 1911. I have a glock 22, A Springfield xdm 40 and a CZ 75b.

Thank you
Newbang

Big difference is Patriot vs Pointman. They are different models.

The Marksman does not have front slide serrations. Other than that I think its very similar to the Pointman 7. There may be some other minor differences, but I can't remember off the top of my head. As far as "sleeker" some people don't like the look of the front slide serrations. I actually like them. I like the looks and its easier to rack the slide.

Hi Noklue3

That I understand. My question had to do with the difference between the pointman seven and the pointman marksman and why if a marksman designation indicates fixed sight my gun was advertised with adjustable sights. Also in question was wether or not the model includes front serrations

Sorry if I was not clear

Hi

You know what ? I do also but it is not a critical matter for me. I am curious however what the extra cost buys me.

Thanks for replying

The name Marksman does not indicate fixed sights. Only in the Patriot which was discontinued around 2003-2004.

The Pointman Marksman is basically the same gun as the PM7. With the exception of a solid trigger, no front cocking serrations, solid trigger and DW logo grips.
