1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Little known fact, but the early Dan Wesson 1911's were built
    entirely by Smith & Wesson for Dan Wesson.

    As a CNC sales engineer I personally saw the facility from the inside. Either they were very good at camoflage or they did indeed assemble and do final machining, to at least some of their models, in Norwich when they were on Rte 12 south of the village. I recall it as a widely spread rumor at the time but I suppose it could have been true for some models. They were model "crazy" at the time and were trying to decide what to bring to market. They sold many of the "experimental" units right from the plant and they have some strange serial numbers. The Patriot came along after the attack on the twin towers and tried to capitalize on the "patriotic" fervor in the country at that time. It's probably one of the few models of 1911 that you will see with a Christian Cross in its logo. If parts came from S&W, final fitting, proofing and assembly were done in Norwich, NY. Thanks for your interest. Bob

    Unfortunately, their facility burnt to the ground a few months ago. They are supposed to be back up and running in Norwich in a month or two. They have quite an enthusiastic following over on 1911forum.com. I bought my first Dan Wesson this past summer and they are a great value and great shooters. Eyeing my next one now, but the recent craziness and the lack of product due to the fire are making them tough to find.

    The early guns were made entirely by S&W. I know as I worked there at the time.

    If anyone is interested, the following link will take you to a 1911 Forum three part review of this model. The pistol in the review was Proofed on 10/23/02, just 18 days after my pistol, in the auction, was proofed on 10/5/02. They should be very similar.

    Skybuster,
    It would be interesting to know if the Patriot was one of those models? Specifically, a model made in October of 2002? Were you at S&W then?

    Yes I was but I don't remember the model. When S&W came out with
    their own 1911's, the association with Dan Wesson stopped. The S&W/
    Dan Wesson's were the first generation produced.
