Since the original 10mm Auto pistol, the Bren Ten, was a CZ-patterned pistol, it makes sense for Dan Wesson, a CZ partner, to bring back a 10mm handgun. And since it’s the Year of the 1911, well, you know what platform the returning Razorback has to be.
Officially named the RZ-10, the Razorback is a full-size, 5-inch, 8+1 10mm 1911. It weighs 2.4 pounds (38.4 ounces) and has a stainless steel slide and frame. The flat sides of the gun have been lightly polished, and the rest remains matte, sandblasted, and grey. The grips are diamond-checkered cocobolo. And it has fixed Novak sights.
Dan Wesson’s amazing firearms aren’t inexpensive, but in the top-shelf 1911 world, it could be worse. These returning diamondbacks will have an MSRP of $1350, meaning real-world pricing of a little over $1000.
We expect an official launch at the next SHOT Show. Dan Wesson said that this will be a limited run, but who knows. This might not be the last return of the Razorback; the 10mm cartridge seems to be getting more and more popular every day.
