A promised blend of all the best things of the CZ 75 and M1911, the Dan Wesson DWX pistol, is closer to production.

Sighted at Dan Wesson’s booth during SHOT Show last month in Las Vegas, the DWX was on hand and was easily one of the most talked-about products on the floor– no small feat considering there were over 2,400 exhibitors.

Under development for years, the 9mm DWX uses a beefed-up locked-breech barrel system and a CZ-style takedown while incorporating a 5-inch match-grade barrel sans the 1911’s link system or barrel bushing. However, it contains many 1911 parts such as the trigger and mainspring while coming to the party with a 19+1 magazine capacity based on the CZ P-09/P-10 and aluminum CZ 75 grips.

Weight is 43-ounces on the standard DMX with an 8.5-inch overall length. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

MSRP is set at $1,799 with availability promised as “soon.”

A DWX 40 S&W version, with a 15+1 capacity, is also billed as coming soon while an aluminum-framed DWX Compact version will use the grips and mags of 75 Compact.
