I just bought one of the last dan wesson pm7's that buds could get supposedly and they were gone for about a week and a half after I bought mine, but they got another back in. Here's the link: http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/17997
Looks like they're all discontinued off of the CZUSA website but there are a few hanging out around. I would buy one while you can!
Just got mine in yesterday to the gun shop and can't wait to see the thing.

I got mine in January. You'll be a very happy man once you pick it up ;-).
They are tight. I use Tetra Gun Grease on the rails. I had 2 FTE's in the first 100 rounds using off brand steel cased ammo (it was all I could find), no problems since.
Enjoy!

They're not discontinued, here. They're still available to CA only distributors. Limited production of 200 each. (Cbob and PM-7) With the new options available on the Valor, there's no need for duplicate guns. Since the Cbob and PM-7 are the only thing on the CA roster, Keith will keep making them just for us.

That's a great looking 1911!!! Congrats! Is $1125 a good value for what you get with theses guns? I thought I had heard that the PM7 was a great value for a 1911. SoCal Guns in San diego has one in stock and it looks pretty nice in person too!

That's a classy move.

Since GB0 just copied from the DW site, I'll add this.
New 2010 models have forged frames as well. Most small parts are Ed Brown, and internals are all being made in house from better quality tool steel than before. While the cost has gone up some, so has the quality to match.
I own an 05 Cbob and have no complaints. I would own a PM-7, but I'm not a fan of adjustable sights or the FCS. What I would prefer is that the RZ-45 Heritage be available in CA. That's what I would buy.

Yes it is. Since DW production is still somewhat small compared to the other guys, they can't/won't submit other models for destruction, er, extortion, I mean testing, yeah, that's it, testing in California. That's why they keep paying to keep the two on the list for us. What's really funny is, if you don't pay your fee, your gun suddenly becomes unsafe. Go figure. :rolleyes:

There's no sense in DW submitting any 1911's for testing. They don't have a mag disconnect or the proper loaded chamber indicator so they would never pass. Mark

Bought my PM-7 last year.

Very nice 1911, I'm real happy with it.

You will be too...:cool:

I think that if CZ could, then they would submit the new Dan Wessons for submission to the roster. I don't think it has to do with whether or not they would be able to pay for the testing.

Sam -
You're mixing your points up. It's not about them paying for testing. It's about what has to be done to the pistol for testing. They have to submit 3 or 4 guns for testing. That's a minimum of $4000 and a loss of 4 guns from an already low production count. Keith has said it's just not worth it.

railroader - I'm not 100% sure of this, so take it for what it's worth, but I believe the 1911 design is grandfathered in. There's no feasible way to add a mag disconnect, but they did get by with the loaded chamber indicator.
That's all I think I know. :D

I grouped in paying for the actual guns and paying to have them on the roster. I don't think economics has anything to do with why the new Dan Wessons aren't on the roster, low production count taken into account.
