  1. So the DW PM-9 with the Dawson Tool-less guide rod, plug and spring installed, weighs (includes that I have a Dawson Precision ICE Magwell and Alum Mainspring housing kit installed) (also includes factory grips) 38.55 oz. With a 10 round Tripp Research Magazine 41.65 oz. With a 10 round Dawson Precision Magazine 41.70 oz. With VZ grips 39.45 oz. With a 10 round Tripp Research Magazine 42.55 oz. With a 10 round Dawson Precision Magazine 42.60 oz. Additional info on Guide Rods GI Guide Rod and Plug 1.
  2. Added these VZ grips to my DW PM-9.
  3. Welcome, lots of info on IDPA and USPSA here in the forums. Many enjoy IDPA, I find that there are to many rules, and some things I don't like, so went the USPSA route.
  4. I will have the Dawson Tool-less guide rod this week, ordered it this past weekend. Already have the Dawson magwell and mainspring, comes as a kit. I will let know, but weight should be below 43 oz with a magazine for sure! I will update the thread on how the install of the tool-less guide rod goes.
  5. Is the Springfield that has that the Loaded 9mm Target model? Mine has a two piece guide rod, that I would like to get rid of some day. Just curious.
  6. Here are the numbers from my scale, with factory mainspring housing and grips, basically a factory 2020 model gun with GI guide rod. 37.80 oz. factory gun only. 40.85 oz. with a empty Tripp Research 10 round magazine. Additional info: 1.75 oz factory mainspring housing .85 oz dawson mainspring housing
  7. Not a problem, I added a Dawson mainspring housing and magwell, but have the stock parts and can convert it back to stock, even with stock grips, and weigh it on my wife's food scale, which should be pretty accurate. I will get back with you. I think any 9mm 1911 is tough to make USPSA weight, especially with a tungsten guide rod.
  8. Thanks, that is what I was hoping to hear. My guess is that it would work, the PM9 seem to be pretty standard 1911. I ordered one yesterday and have two guns that need one, but wanted to see if others were using the Dawson or not. Guess I should have ordered two to save the shipping, oh well the other is a FLGR so I use the paper clip. I found the GI is easier if I can get the bushing turned and set on the edge of the plug, then finish it with the bushing wrench. I can see where guys think the GI rod is easiest to use, but for me it is the only gun like that and I wanted to have so
  9. Welcome, 60 years ????? Guessing you have seen a lot of advancement in reloading equipment through the years. Curious what you use for equipment and what calibers do you reload?
  10. Welcome jimmer. Wow, Arizona, you can shoot year round in that nice weather?
  11. Thought I would snap a picture of the three I mentioned, so you can compare the size. Left to Right, S&A, Dawson, Techwell XT. Like BadLuck2 mentioned in his post, the inserts are a big plus in the Dawson.
  12. Just installed a Dawson Precision ICE magwell with mainspring housing yesterday. Also have Techwell IPSC XT, and a Smith & Alexander on another 1911. I like the Dawson the best, for sure the has the most width, the Techwell is a for sure fit the IPSC box, and the S&A is the best fit one, welded and fit to mainspring housing at SA Custom shop. So if someone else is doing the work, you probably have lots of options, the mentioned Infinity would be a great choice if money was not problem, you did say BEST.
  13. I picked up a 2020 model Dan Wesson PM9, and it has a GI guide rod and plug. It is different than all my other 1911s and 2011s, so would like to switch to a FLGR, or Dawson Tool-less guide rod. Other than it being the only GI guide rod that I would have, the bushing is pretty tight so it makes reassemble kind of hard for me, to press the plug and get the bushing wrench on at the same time to turn the bushing. I searched here and on the web, could not find the answer as to whether the Dawson Precision Tool-less guide rod would work, the ones I have are bull barrel models, and the b
  14. Picked this up used from a member here last week, Dan Wesson PM-9 (2020 model). Installed a Dawson Ice mainspring housing and magwell this evening, next have to find some VZ magwell grips. Scroll up 7 posts, and you will see the original gun....
  15. They seem to be within each model, platform, XD, and XD(M). I know the 3.8, 4.5 and 5.25 XD(M) models I moved them around.
