Makes you wonder why they bothered buying out dan wesson, if they arn't interested in selling their products....
I am a new commer to the sport, who has his semi-auto rimfire, and was trying to decide between a 1911 or a revolver for my first centerfire. Both have their benifits, but I cant decide which will allow me to become a better shooter...however the 1911 fits me like a glove, with the sights always being aligned natrally. The S&W 686 does not fit me, the Ruger GP100 does, but doesn't feel as positive as the 1911, and the Dan Wesson handels similar to the GP100, but is just a more innovative arm.
I think that I will go for the 1911 first, but I still can't leave the revolver alone....and I think you know what I mean.
Though it is also interesting to note, that the world record for ISSF centerfire was set back in the 60's with an S&W revolver.....

I wouldn't get to concerned about the future of the CZ/DW merger. This topic has been beaten to death over on 1911forum.com. CZ has already officially announced their intentions to bring back DW revolvers later this year. Future 1911 offerings will depend on sales of the two products they chose to keep: The Patriot Bobtail and the Pointman Seven. Both will be offered in both 10mm and .45 (this is speculation, but generally considered probable from several reliable sources close to the situation).
IMHO - Even with the price hike, the two 1911s they are offering are probably the best values for the money in that price range. I already own the Bobtail in a 10mm, and I have a Razorback on the way (got lucky and found some clearance stock...).
Bottom line - Dan Wesson was far too small to meet the customer demand for their product. Adding CZ to the mix has brought a far better distribution system in, and CZ has already committed to the point that Dan Wesson will be considered their "high end" line. CZ also has the business prowess to take an already excellent product, and mass produce it out over a far better spectrum.
