    Does anyone know if the newer DWs have the protruding pin on right side with the flanged (rim) edge on it like Rob suggested? If it does it wonít come out until the wide part of slot lines up with...

    I get it now regarding the parts. The non-standard parts results in fitting many of them, minimal drop-in. I think Iíll hold off for now as I only have 400 rounds thru the pistol. At least you can...

    My right grip doesnít touch or cover thumb safety. I called DW and asked about this level of disassembly. They said it is very tight and they advise against it if nothing is wrong with pistol. I was...

    I have disassembled my slide to clean the extractor channel and inspect the firing pin. And I can field strip my 1911 in my sleep. But I have not yet disassembled the bottom end (frame). Looking a...

    Yes, I looked at mine with a light and have the split roll pin just like that. Thanks for confirmation. If I had not asked here, and wanted to remove the front sight, I would have used a sight pusher...

    Evil Ed, yes I am new to 1911s and was unaware of all the nuances of sight cuts. I love my sights. Just wondering if in future a replacement was desired, how does it come off? Now I know . The...

    By ďfactoryĒ I meant as received from Dan Wesson. Itís possible that DW fits them to their nonstandard dovetail cut, if they are nonstandard. Iíll measure my cuts and compare to the Novak Lo Mount...

    Thatís good to know. If I need a replacement I would match dimensions to what is on my pistol. My factory Ameriglo fits perfectly. My friend just got night sights installed on his Remington R1. He...

    I just figured out the ď21Ē in the H3 21 stamped on my Ameriglo sights is the year 2021. I feel kind of dumb now. Never had night sights but a great way for the manufacturer to know the age for...

    Dan Wesson told me they use the SB180 to test their 10mm 1911s. I find they shoot well in my pistol. I also like the Federal 180 but they advertise slower velocity of 1050 vs 1165 FPS. And my...

    My Specialist has night sights by Ameri-Glo, model H3-21. I canít find them online anywhere but they were made to some spec. The number on the sights is H3-21. Of course H3 is just the chemical...

    And to remove them you tap them thru. Itís just a slight interference fit but it will drive thru. There is no access from the bottom.

    Mine is empty. I can pass a thin safety pin thru the hole. Mine was made this year. Wonder if a change? Do you just drive the pin in until flush with top of sight and assure it wonít hit the barrel...

    Well I was wondering if I wanted to replace it you need to know if there is a pin in there?

    Dan Wesson 1911 front sight attachment?

    My DW Specialist (full size) has Ameriglo front and rear sights. The rear looks like a Novak style slide cut. The front is a typical dovetail, not sure dimensions. There is a vertical hole on the...
  18. Anyone shot Sellier and Bellot 180 JHP in 10mm?

    I found some of this at LGS for $35/box. I have been shooting the SB 180 FMJ and it shoots well. The manufacturer claims 1165 FPS. I have seen a few Utube tests revealing slower results. This looks...

    I shot my DW Specialist in 10mm today with Wolff 23# spring. It ran great shooting the ammo I have been shooting; 180 grain at 1050 and 1165 ft/sec. As expected, the ejection distance was down to...

    Thatís a good point. If I start getting cycling issues I will immediately put the factory 22# spring back. DW also said it would not invalidate their warranty to shoot the heavy and hot ammo although...
  21. Installed Wolff 23# recoil spring in Dan Wesson Specialist 10mm

    I have my new pistol broken in at 350 rounds functioning fine. Been shooting 180 grain stuff at 1050-1165 FPS. My cases are ejecting 12-15 feet and reliably. I want test some hunting ammo that I will...

    Very interesting that you are not aware of any as I know you are experienced. The hi-power patent was filed in 1923. The patents I read were 1910 and 1911. If there were no early 1911 military...
  24. 1911 - fire with no magazine but loaded chamber?

    My Beretta 92A1 will fire if loaded and no magazine and the frame is inscribed with this warning. As a combat pistol this makes sense to me as you may wind up changing magazines or otherwise losing...
