Please post your DW 1911s. Here is my DW CBOB from a few years ago. I lost it when the economy went downhill and has yet to recover. It shot great from the box. Hakan made some superb BOB grips for it. I'd like to get another DW 1911 someday. A CCO My chosen defensive load would be the 185 gr.DPX or DT TAC-XP. Hornady's FTX Critical Defense would be another. The 2012 Dan Wesson ECO looks promising as well.
