Got this DW CBOB recently, knew there was a problem with it, but it was at a good price, and I had a pretty good idea what was wrong after I examined it.

Took it apart and found this

recoil spring has been cut/too short

Maybe the angle but the lugs on the barrel dont look right.

That's what I'm thinking. Doesn't have that double loop on one end.

It's probably how the barrel was photographed, nothing wrong with it and the recoil spring.

Remember it's a DW CBOB, that's a huge hint.

The barrel bushing looks to be for a Govt. Model, not a Commander, but its always hard to tell from photographs.

Oh! The recoil spring plug is a gov't, it's longer than mine.

Bushing opening looks a little larger than barrel o.d.=inaccurate

Recoil spring plug, spring, and guide rod are wrong. Looks like the spring was cut down and the guide rod filed down in an attempt to make it work. But whoever did it failed to cut the plug down as well.

Noticed that as well. Add it to the list...

Are there lugs on the barrel bushing?

A few got it right,

someone installed a Full size barrel bushing and recoil spring guide, instead of the commander length ones.

The Recoil spring is the correct length commander one.

The barrel bushing was actually pretty well fitted to the barrel, it's probably the picture that makes the relationship between it and the barrel look off.

Did the original owner try to make it better?

Looks like all three parts are wrong. Guide Rod, Bushing, spring capture are all to long. All look like Government profile. You should probably detail strip it to make sure everything else is ok too.

One of the previous owners attempted some work on it, don't know which one.

Already completely disassembled, refreshed the springs and replaced any parts that looked like they were butchered, just waiting on some replacement grips then out to test fire it.

actually it's too long, because of that and the barrel bushing the slide would not lock back.

I hope you got a really good deal on that one.

extremely good for a DW cbob, and with the exception of the grips I already had all the parts needed to make it run right.

Next time I'm buying a used 1911, I'm giving you a call :)

Nice looking piece, although it's obvious that the barrel is about .75" too short. A proper 1911 should have at least 5" of barrel... ;)


Hey, I'd rock that DW. Pretty sweet setup.

Yeah, Dan Wesson and other manufacturer's have a slightly more significant model designation than a "numbering" system! Sorry "G" fans, couldn't resist....:43:

Got a chance to run it, and now it works well, just have to work on the cosmetics now.

I bought mine long enough ago that it was about $900.00, I think they are very well made. Tight chamber on the pistol too.

Looks original now!

Is the hammer the original one? The reason why I am asking is that the one I just put in jail last week has a hammer that looks similar to your but the one the CZ website and on some videos I watched on youtube, it seems a bit lighter in color.
It could be the light that fools me...
