Editor’s Choice: Dan Wesson DWX Compact

Dan Wesson has introduced two intriguing all-metal pistols by leveraging its expertise in manufacturing 1911s and the company’s familial ties to CZ-USA.

The DWX and DWX Compact mate the ergonomics and magazine capacity of the CZ 75 and P-09/P-10 platforms with the single-action trigger and cocked-and-locked carry style of the 1911 in either a race-ready fullsize pistol or mid-size defensive firearm, respectively.

Focusing in on the 4"-barreled DWX Compact, the pistol is chambered to fire 9 mm Luger, feeds from a 15-round magazine based on the CZ 75 Compact’s unit, and disassembles in a manner similar to other CZs—gone is the M1911’s link assembly.

The left-side thumb safety, crisp trigger pull, and excellent sights will be familiar to M1911 fans, and the DWX pistols feature parts-compatibility in certain areas with both parent platforms, allowing for user customization. For more information on the new Dan Wesson DWX Compact, visit
