    So does anyone one know if this is a pseudo-GI spec Dan Wesson at a dang fine price and a CZ stamp? Or is it something else entirely?
    The "look" is reminiscent of DW to my eye, but that could very well be wishful thinking on my part. If it's a no frills DW, it could well be one of the better 1911 deals out there.

    It kinda looks like a DW.
    Thanks for finding. If they kept the DW base, it would be a good deal.

    This is not a good thing. I have a CZ fetish and a 1911 fetish. The combination could bankrupt me. I thought my V-Bob was enough, but this could be a nice addition to the stable. Looks like a good solid 1911 that I wouldn't mind getting dirty and beat up a little.

    OK, I'm stumped......what part of this 1911 gives it a DW "look"? Aside from the MSH, the roll mark and stocks, sure looks like a R1 to me. Or maybe just another 1911? Hell, I don't know.....I like CZ so I'll probably get one when it shows up....priced right.

    After lusting for 1911s as long as I have, you can "tell" who made it just from the looks.
    Les Baer has a distinctive look that (to me) says "Yep, I drive Mustangs. I am Les Baer".
    Dan Wesson (now owned by CZ) and Ed Brown have their distinctive looks (and look very much alike).
    And STIs are in a class by themselves.
    Colts and Springfield Armory (when similar models are laid side-by-side) display a difference that is kinda hard to explain, but they are different.

    Others are harder to identify by sight alone. But considering that there are sub-contracts in the manufacturing, this is normal.

    Dern, I love 1911s.

    It looks as it is labeled. 1911 A1.

    Arched MSH. . . and. . . nothing else

    Yep. But it will most likely work seamlessly, and be priced very competitively. If so, it will sell.
