Hello:

I am new to this forum and will be purchasing a Dan Wesson 1911 model soon. I have asked my dealer to locate a Patriot but he says that the Pointman is the same thing. Am I missing something?

They are different models. The Patriot has a forged frame and an external extractor. The Pointman has a cast frame and (I believe) an internal extractor. There are other differences, but those are some of the major ones.

The Pointman does have an internal extractor. The Patriot also has a match-grade barrel while the pointman has target-grade.

The barrels are exactly the same. The etching of "target" or "match" is for marketing.

There are other differences. The Major has a raised target rib with built in adjustable rear sights. The Patriot has dovetailed Bomar style rear sights and a round top slide.

Thanks for the replies. Hopefully, I will be at the range next week with my new Patriot!
