2015 has been my 1911 year.
After having had no 1911's prior to this year I bought:
- Colt Govt
- DW PM9
- DW black Valor

I wanted to finish out the collection with a SS "two-toned" 45 1911.
I hemmed and hawed about a Heritage vs a LB Concept V for months.
After I ran across a NIB Heritage for $905 I pulled the trigger.
I couldn't be more happy with the appearance.
The finish is exactly what I was looking for (brushed polished flats and matte gray frame).
At the range today it performed flawlessly with 75 rounds.
I love my two other DW's, but got a little skittish reading the galling threads about the Heritage.
I'm glad I bought this one.
My only disappointment is that I bought a couple pairs of VZ grips that I thought would look and feel better than the factory grips, but the factory grips are actually very nice aesthetically and functionally.

Sounds like it has been a good year so far. Glad to hear that the Heritage has been good for you. I am sure the LB would have been good to you too. Perhaps you will still end up with it.

$905 is a great price BTW.

I paid $1200 out the door for my heritage two weeks ago. My dealer ordered it and it was here the next day. Mine is still breaking in but it has been great so far. $900 cant be beat. Good job.

Congratulations on the new pistol. While I don't own a Heritage (I do own other DWs), I think they are an excellent value.

OK, another 25 flawless rounds yesterday.

I'm too lazy to figure out how to post pictures, but here's a GB link to the one I bought:

These are the VZ grips I bought but haven't yet switched them out. At some point I will though since I have them and want to see which set I really like most.

My PM9 is currently wearing these new grips:

Gotta knock off buying any more guns for a while.
I just found out I need to have a tooth pulled/implant for almost $6000. :(
