This just in: CZ 1911's in stock and look pretty nice!!

Just got in a shipment of CZ 1911's and am pretty impressed with what you get for the money. Nice frame to slide fit, zero downward barrel play and very nice small parts. Everything you would expect from a CZ product.

We got 3 in today and they are ready to ship to your FFL or use one for a base gun for a custom build. I don't expect them to last long.

Call or email for more details.

Nope. CZ 1911's. We do get DW's in from time to time. We can get them in a couple of days in most cases.

I like that hammer. Also the rear sight looks rather sturdy.

The hammer appears to be a nice duplication of the original spur hammer. It' also appears to be a bar stock part. I also like that they use a Novak cut for the front sight.

Do they have a firing pin safety? A couple folks received the new Inlands and revealed that those are Series 80.

This detailed review shows the fire control parts and there aren't any levers in the pics so I would assume it's a series 70. To be honest, I just took it out of the case, wiped the huge amount of oil off it and snapped a pic.

I'll verify it for myself on Tuesday if I remember.

So CZ will have competing 1911 brands? Sounds very short lived.

I don't quite understand your logic!

The CZ offering in an A1 - GI repro.
The DW offerings are for SD/target.

They will appeal to different buyers - yet many will select from both offerings. IMHO it will not be short lived at all - and a big seller.

I saw these on gunbroker for $699. Thought it was a great deal, but I still think a Colt 1991 for the same price is a better deal.

Last time Colt made a MilSpec (ANVIII) it cost over $1200 . The intriguing question is why the decision was made to label this a CZ rather than a Dan Wesson . One theory is that they wanted to keep this at a price point , which if it were a DW , would create too large a price gap between it and the current entry level DW . Price point of this gun is closer to the CZ line of pistols than it is to the DW line .

The Colt Series 70 (~$850) is just about as "mil-spec" as this gun. I really wish CZ would've put GI sights and a lanyard loop on it, especially since with Inland making theirs a Series 80 the market is still without an accurate GI replica. We have dozens of custom 1911s and several "retro" 1911s on the market, but none that are true copies of a WW2-era M1911A1. Having said that, the CZ appears to have a very good build quality for the price and will probably take sales away from Remington and Springfield.

The one thing I like on this gun is the wide spur hammer . That is really retro to me . Agree about lanyard loop but that is an easier add-on than a hammer .

I wonder why they just didn't stick with the Dan Wesson name.

We have 4 of these limited number 1911's in stock right now if anyone is looking for them.

In case you haven't heard by now, CZ limited the production to 1000 units. If you are on the fence about buying one, give us a shout because once they are gone, it's doubtful that we will be able to get more.

These guns are VERY well put together.

I have one of these and love it enough if I could afford it I'd buy another. I see it as an outstanding value. That being said today at the range the roll pin that holds the front sight started backing out. Anyone else had this problem?
