I have three Dan Wessons (Valor, ECO, PM-9) and three LBs (Boss, UTC, Concept VII). The DWs are better looking, and to me appear more "refined" cosmetically. But I shoot the Baers better. If...

It is hard not to like the Baers. They aren't necessarily the prettiest guns on the market, but they are accurate work horses that are very high quality. I have more expensive 1911s, but none I shoot...

I feel your pain. I'd love to have the Black Baer but just can't justify the price. I too bought a DW PM-9 direct from DW with a military discount of 22%. I love shooting it.

I have the ECO in .45 and carried it IWB for a while. It has been 100% reliable. But it has significant recoil compared to an all steel 1911 in .45. I found one box of ammo was about as much as I...

Yeah, my SAS is just right. But for any gun you contemplate purchasing, make sure it is right for YOU before purchasing. That would include the thumb safety.
