Damn Larry!!!!! His fault... new 10mm 😎

Went out this morning to pick up one of the Kimbers.  But The Lord operates in misterious ways...  The dealer with the Kimbers has great pricing but he’s a small guy and apparently he only works through appointments.  This was my first time working with him and probably will be the last.  I had to chase him all day yesterday to even hear from him and after I made an appointment with him he never sent me the address to his place and it’s an hour away.  So this morning I headed to town figuring somehow I’ll get to him and I was so pissed 10 minutes before appointment time not having heard from him yet that I said screw him and headed to my favorite GS in town.

When the manager saw me he smiled since I hadn’t been there in a long while.  We caught up for a little bit and I asked what he had in 10mm 1911s.  He pulled this off the shelf, funny, someone had put it on layaway a few months back and never came back for it so he had just put it out again, and since he already had some cash on it he gave me a deal.

NIB Stainless Dan Wesson Razorback!!!  The same gun Larry suggested yesterday and I told him was out of my budget range. A short phone call with the wife and she upped the balance in the gas tank enough to cover the difference.  Did I mention how much I LOVE that girl?!?!?!?

So here it is and it’s definitely Larry’s fault...  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!


This thing locks up like bank vault!  As tight as my WC and I think the trigger might be BETTER than my WC.  Probably about 3.5 but I don’t have a clue where my gauge is.  Hopefully I’ll have time tomorrow to get to the range.  I have to spend some time being nice to my gorgeous woman tonight...

    I'm sure it will live up to its reputation and your expectations.

    Great find.  And before I forget.  I HATE YOU!
    But were still OK, if you let me shoot it.
    I will have the SS Blackhawk you can play with too.

    Nice piece!!  I have that same pointman and the Valor in Black and they are cream puffs to shoot!!
    They had a gun called the Razor 10 but I've never seen one to know whats different?

    Haven’t hear one bad comment about DW from any owners, that’s for sure!  Thanks!

    One of THE cleanest looking 1911s on the market. They don't look like an abused crack baby had their way with crayons on the slide like most every other maker.

    Glad you were able to get that, hermano.  Tool steel parts, outstanding fitting, and a consistent 3.5lb trigger according to my gauge. Best 1911 in my safe, including my TRP and my Hatfield CCO. 

    I did end up tweaking mine a bit, with a Harrison tritium front sight and VZ Ragnarok grips.

    You've been very patient on the 10mm gun. Glad it paid off 
    Go make some noise.

    Man we had a guy hear when it was G&A way back that was a Dan Wesson fan and he's the reason I tried the pointman to begin with....Who was that guy???

    Very nice, Looks like a good find.
  • JKPJKP Senior Member Posts: 1,628 Senior Member
    Good choice. I'd like to mess around with one of those tricked out RIAs but doubt they would hold value like the DW.

    I’d settle for ANY basement.  Builders down south don’t believe in them.  I do miss the days when I could get back from the gun store and start blazing away right from my own back porch.  It’ll happen again.  I need to be patient...

    It does need tritium sights and I’m ordering slim grips for it tonight.  I just can’t deal with standard 1911 grips anymore.

    They don't put basements in homes in California either, I've only ever been in exactly one there. Of course, Florida would be next to impossible, either the basement would be flooded continuously or the house would float up! Lots of them in the mid west though - I've always wanted one and a basement range extended with some buried culvert would be sweet indeed!

    Actually I had to rush home to put together this huge closet piece of furniture she ordered and I did not realize it was coming in 10 separate boxes.  She’s getting her pound of flesh from me tonight.  I JUST finished and I’m never building another one of these things ever again!

    It was a long road but it had the right ending!  Tomorrow I will TRY to sneak out for 1/2 hour MAYBE.  Have to take care of my FIL, he’s not doing great and mom needs to do some running around.
