I would seriously check ouy Dan Wesson. I bouhgt my first one in 2004 and never looked back. I currently own 16 Wessons , mostly Pre-CZ guns. My every day carry weapon is a Patriot bob-tail in .45 ACP. Dan Wessons in my opinion give the most bang for your buck. Excellent fit and finish for a production piece that won't break the bank. Check'em out.
