    As promised here are some pictures.

    My first impression is very favorable. It fits my hand like no other gun ever has, this includes standard 1911's. The fit and finish is closer to what one would expect of a higher end gun instead of a production gun. There is hardly and discernible slide movement, either up and down or side to side.

    Everything is well blended. The grip safety, which is the Ed Brown memory groove safety, could be blended a touch better but it isn't bad. I've seen far worse. The thumb safety is very smooth and has that good "snick" sound.

    The front strap checkering is listed as 20LPI and fairly aggressive. I'll see how it does does during shooting. It may need to toned down slightly.

    The Novak style night sights are bright. Front is dovetailed into the slide. They both have Trijicon printed on them.

    The trigger pull is crisp and seems to be between 4 and 5 lbs. May need a little attention as I've gotten too spoiled by the trigger job that was done on my Springfield.

    All in all it seems to be everything advertised. For me it seems to be the perfect pistol. Final judgment will be reserved for the range because the proof is in the pudding.

    Now the pictures.

    What is in the box

    Wrench? Is Wesson putting a full length rod in his 1911's?

    And them mags look positively homely next to that beautiful commander; I find it odd that they wouldn't ship with stainless.

    Oooh, Merry Christmas to you! Beautiful gun...I am very seriously considering a DW Razorback as my next gun purchase, after the first of the year. We'll see how it works out. :D

    Really a nice looking pistol....Don't forget a range report...
    BTW, what does DW call that particular finish?

    Nice! I recently came very close to buying one of those. Let us know how it shoots. With enough positive feedback, I might have to go ahead and buy one too!
