    Hey 1911 Freaks, just got a new Dan Wesson 1911cz Heritage from Cabela's. Best price I could find. Took it to the range and after 4 rds slide froze! Went home cleaned pistol and back to the range the next day, 4 rds, same problem.
    Well it's on it's way back to Dan Wesson CZ. They could not have been nicer. This pistol is so sweet I can't begin to tell you all. They'll do there thing to the slide and I'll report back. :)

    When you cleaned the thing after it first froze up, what did you see on rails? Any marks of galling? Did you thoroughly clean the packing grease off before shooting?

    I am interested in what the problem is.

    No I didn't notice any marks. What I did notice is how tight the gun, I can't believe this is a production handgun. :)

    Sounds TOO tight for a 1911 :(

    My wilson is pretty tight and I have never had any problems. Did you take any pictures?
