Dan Wesson Brings Back the Mighty 10mm Razorback


Before being bought by CZ-USA, Dan Wesson made a 1911 chambered for 10mm called the “Razorback.” 10mm fans loved these pistols, and when they were discontinued there was much groaning and sighing and shaking of heads. Well, it looks like CZ has finally been persuaded to let Dan Wesson make the Razorback again! You get nine rounds of 10mm in this single-stack 1911, because 9mm is too small and .45acp is too slow. The five-inch barrel is match grade, all the metal components are stainless steel, and there’s no polymer anywhere. The Razorback weighs in at nearly two and a half pounds, but you’ll appreciate the weight when you shoot it. Sending 200 grain bullets downrange at over 1000 feet per second generates a lot of recoil! MSRP on the Razorback is listed at $1350, which should hopefully mean a “street price” somewhere below $1200. If you’re a 10mm fan, get in line now, because we’ve heard this will be a low production priority gun. It seems demand will always outstrip supply on quality 10mm pistols.

  1. Why does God hate me so? Another pistol I want but cannot afford. Guess I’ll just stick to my G20.

    The one good thing is it does seem to me that there is an increasing interest in 10mm again. I love the round, think it’s more than adequate for self defense, and that it’s a shame it costs so much to shoot. One would hope that if the demand for it increased, the prices would drop as more and more manufacturers got into the 10mm game.

    But, like me owning this pistol, that’s more a dream than reality.

  2. Thats not even what a 1911 should look like. There were no Beaver Tails in 1911
    and they damn sure never threw no 10mm back then either
    you would make John Browning turn over in his own grave
