David takes the Dan Wesson RazorBack RZ-10 1911 in 10mm Norma out for a day of shooting, here is his report.
Some of us recall the original 10mm 1911, the Colt Delta Elite from the mid-1980s. It was just a production grade pistol with somewhat indifferent fitting, trigger pull, and only adequate accuracy. This Dan Wesson is not one of those.
Upon first examination, I noticed that the slide had a very smooth, tight but free-running fit. Only the slightest bit of side-to-side play was felt when pushing against the front end of the slide when the pistol was in battery. Otherwise, the vertical fit of the barrel, the fit of the bushing to both the slide and the barrel were all exemplary.
The long stainless steel polished trigger is a bit much for rapid fire, but not for a pistol designed for precision shots against the namesake wild hogs that are its namesake.
