    My new PM-9 finally arrived, but the left side of the slide caught me by surprise.

    Ive been looking into the valor and one of the selling points for me is the tasteful small rollmarks. Dan Wesson needs to tone those roll marks down a bit.

    Never seen one before, but a very handsome pistol. Dad has a Heritage, brother has a Valor and they are fantastic pistols. I'm sure a 9mm version is awesome.

    I am highly envious. I wanted a PM9 but could not find one anywhere so I settled for a Kimber 5" 9mm. I'd take one even with the billboard!

    My Pointman 9 is one of my favorite pistols. Mine is an older one without the billboard, which I like better.

    Looks like yours has front strap checkering and fiber optic front sights. Did the older PM9 have those upgrades? Looks great! I don't mind the Dan Wesson signature on the slide.

    I managed to put through 350 rounds this weekend and I must say the performance was stellar. In the beginning I had 2 or 3 frtb the rest was all good. I managed to put 100 rounds inside a 3" circle @ 21ft with room to spare, a 47 round group of 1 1/2 in. @ 30 ft. It did take me a box of 50 to adjust the rear sight so I could achieve the results mentioned above. The slide and frame fit is probably the best of all my DW's and they are all excellent. The trigger is excellent, crisp with no creep whatsoever and I imagine that will improve over time. Overall finish is typical DW that being excellent for the money. I've shot 9mm 1911's costing 2 to 2 1/2 times the price and my PM-9 can easily hang with them as far as performance off hand goes. I expect to hit the 1000 round mark faster than I did with any other firearm, it's that much a pleasure to shoot.:perfect10:
    By the way, I'm at peace with the DW signature on my slide.
