Wow, I'm standing here in awe, makes my little collection look very humble, indeed! Very nice. How do you like the Dan Wesson bobtail? I have always thought that looks very useable...

Thanks everybody!

Ooben: I've only had the Dan Wesson for around 2 weeks. I am blown away by how well built, fitted, accurate, and ergonomic it is. The Novak/Trijicon night sights, with the green front and yellow rear dots, are very easy to use. The polished flats and matte top/bottom is gorgeous. The stocks are amazingly handsome with the Allen head screws. The trigger pull breaks at a super crisp 5 lbs 2 oz with zero overtravel due to the adjustable stop. The extended grip safety, thumb safety, and mag release are perfect. The checkering on the front strap makes the gun feel like it's glued to your hands. The Bobtail mainspring housing makes you never want to hold a standard 1911 again. My Colt Combat Elite feels like a brick compared to the glove like fit of this Dan Wesson. When I shake my Colt, it rattles loudly due to the poor slide to frame fit. The DW is absolutely silent.

Pictures say a thousand words, so here's 3,000 more words to describe the DW:

Dan Wesson Commander Classic Bobtail .45's are on for around $975 including shipping and FFL transfer. I cannot find a better bang for the buck in the 1911 market. Wilson, Baer, STI, etc 1911's are easily $2000, $2500, $3000, to $3500. Colts are $1000+. The DW's are available full size or Commander in 10mm or .45 and I think anyone considering a quality 1911 should give them their full consideration. Awesome guns!
