If DW & CZ had a baby...

Very interesting! It won't replace my TS, or my STI Edge in 40, but build it in 10mm & im in!

That looks interesting. It has my attention. Looking forward to seeing the compact version.

Oh! I like the concept.
.45 ACP or 10mm would be nice if the market would make it worth it for DW..

Agreed, not going to replace my STIs or Tanfoglios but neat nonetheless. It's MSRP is actually less than a CZ Accushadow 2..

Seems like their answer to the Wilson EDC. Oh well, the more the merrier. I could see buying one without the snags on the dust cover.

Ok Keith, let's talk. After spending the night mulling over this proposed offering from DW/CZ I'm left wondering what we're really getting?

The 1911 fire control system is great for those of us who are familiar smithing them, but other than that you are proposing a full size model which is directly competing with the TSO - that's a tough nut to crack!

In the compact model your up against the CZ 75c, which a custom version can be had for about 1k, &'which I edc.

I really like the idea of the 1911 fire controls, but your caliber offerings are already offered elsewhere at equal to or better prices.

My interest is still there, but it would have to be in other calibers, i.e. 38 super, 10 mm.

I would like it if it had an adapter plate for the rear sight to accept rds, like the sig 320 x5. I still like the pistol and will follow it closely.

That will be the Gen 2.

I wonder where they are being made.
Czech Rep. or wherever Dan Wessons come from.

I don't know if anyone mentioned, the frame and slide rails of this model looks to be the conventional (1911ish) style, i.e. the slide rail is on the outside and the frame rail is inside. It is not like the CZ frame outside/slide inside design.

Keith, Please make this in .45. It's a marriage of East to West and should have the corresponding calibers. Make a matched set. I'd buy it

I'd prefer this without the rail, but I'd likely buy it anyway.

Team CZ/DW,

I shoot a Shadow 2 in uspsa production and now carry optics but use the flat safety because the standard safety dug into the palm of my support hand (and the safety is irrelevant in those 2 divisons on a DA/SA gun). I have biggish hands and a high hold. I also have the same problem with the safety on the TSO, pokes the crap out of me. Given I need a Limited gun to further complete my life, the DWX in 40 seems perfect.

Curious about the safety position though. 1911s don't bother me at all but as mentioned, the TSO is a no go. Is the DWX more like a 1911 or TSO as far as safety position goes? Looks similar to a 1911 but just want to confirm. Can't wait to fondle one of these.

These newer style halfbreed pistols just don’t do it for me. For a scaled down I’d go with a cz82 or cz83.

I had to search and find the picture of the hammer area in order to agree with you. This leaves more slide area for the cocking serrations, which I find lacking on several of my cz clones. Except for the accessory rail and aluminum grips,(and maybe the red colors), I'm all in and have been wishing for years for a gun like this.

I would be shocked if at least one of these didn't show up in my safe.

Will it have the same trigger pull as the DW 1911s or less than 3.5 #s / 2.00 #s to complete with CZ Custom SA/DA pistols or single action TSO? That's the big unknown...

The DWX is competing against STI/DVC 2011's which cost $2k-$3k and each of those mags cost $120+. So the DWX is priced very fair and the mags cost a fraction of the 2011 mags.
