I have a couple older colts, but wanted another 1911. As bac has stated, all the new colts i looked at were fit with loose slides. So i looked at a couple of dan wesson's at my local shop. They were both really nice! Slides and barrel's were tight. Beautiful guns. What stopped me? Two things I just really didn't want stainless, and i read many of you here saying that the dan wesson is just not quite the gun as your les baer's. So i found a guy out west that has them in stock and ordered a premier 2 without the front cocking serations. Should have it later this week. Never handled or even saw one before! I hope it's killer! Any insight by anyone on the premier 2 would be appreciated Garander Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
