Somebody told me once that since CZ didn't make or import the 1911s they were ill-equipped to handle warranty claims on them. It should have been up to Dan Wesson to do the repairs since they built the guns and should've had the parts on hand, but somewhere in the management chain there was a serious failure to communicate between CZ and DW. That shouldn't have been my problem though.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
