Dan Wesson DWX: The Mother Thread

Recommended Posts

Do we know if the DWX uses P09 mags or the newer P10F mags? I have some older P09 mags, but none of the updated P10F mags.

It shouldnt really matter, but they will probably take the updated P09/P10F mags. Heres a thread on modifying the old style mags to fit:

This is correct, dwx takes the new updated p-09/p10f magazines. (Top set of reversible notches.)

Thank you for clarifying! Super excited, any chance of a release date?

I am sure there is.  We just don't know when.  I am just pretending I don't want one for now.

I was told by Keith at Dan Wesson Q1 2020. Sounds extremely early given typical time lines for CZ new releases, but maybe since this is primarily a DW thing, not CZ, it will be accurate.

So it looks like the 25 original P-09 magazines that I have with only the single notch on each side won't work then correct?

I think you could modify them to, if you wanted, see the thread that I quoted earlier.

 

Well, I had my local CZ/DW dealer put my name down to order one as soon as they are able to. I'm excited, and I dont mind being a guinea pig.

assuming that mag was also used for the live fire testing that was shown in the videos, that should mean the dwx full size would take legacy (and new) P-09 mags, no?

As a fairly new shooter that hasn't made the jump to the 2011 platform yet. This is an extremely attractive offering to me. It has several things going for it, for guys like me. Lower overall price, cheaper mags, no worries about having to tune the already expensive mags to make them run right, it has all the things a competition blaster should have (ahem 1911 parentage), AND made by manufacturer/s that already have a great track record when it comes to quality. A lot of you saying you don't see the benefit I think are coming from a place of already being established in the sport. You've already dropped $5k+ on your 2011s and got them running correctly. What you aren't considering is NEW shooters, where I think this gun will see most of its demand come from. And if it runs like I'm sure it will, I bet you see a lot of new shooters at least starting with this and then maybe moving into the multiple thousands 2011s later.

If it runs I doubt any one will be switching to 2011s  .  there will be mods and after market stuff for this also.

Eh... My Para mags with Dawson basepads required nothing more than taking the factory pad off and installing a Dawson to get 20 rounds reloadable. And the pistol was ~$1100 new in 2016.

Good deal and you had good luck on the mags running out of the box. Unfortunately, a lot of 2011 mags require quite a bit of tuning to get them to run reliably. Even after they are tuned, you run into them eventually needing to be re-tuned. If you know how, no big deal, but if you have to send them off to a pro, then it becomes even more of an investment into just the mags.

For you guys who want to be among the first to get your hands on one, Brownells is accepting pre orders.

thanks for the link. may take Brownells a while though. i've pre-ordered from them several times and even after release, it can take them months.  one time, they called me 1yr after i tried buying a Scar17.

I did a quick check, the Brownells code for %10 off and free shipping did drop the price even though it's preorder/backorder. Brought the price down to $1,540 shipped, I didn't order but was curious.

Better yet, you already have a pretty good aftermarket and customization options right out of the gate.

 

Existing grips, sights, fire control/ignition components (hammer, sear, disconnect, firing pin), springs (recoil springs (will fit 1911 size) hammer spring, sear spring, fp spring), Magwells, basepads. Heck you even have both extended and low profile safeties and slide stops at release. 

 

Though I'm certainly excited to see what new things the aftermarket may decide to offer.

Curious to see if they honor that. That's dealer cost almost.

i think they will b/c if there's no further discounts, they have a mechanism for that on their end.  I tried to add a Zenith z5rs and it said no further discounts on their products. So if it took it, i think they will honor it.

I wonder how the aftermarket will be. I'm going to list my Edge to get one in 9mm (haven't shot USPSA in a few years) and would love for it to double as a host.
