Don't look like a lot of original DW with that one? Any idea on the slide and barrel mfg?

After a tear down, barrel is original, I have no clue what slide this is, or why it was changed. The internals are all stock. I sat it aside by side to my Valor and the only real difference is the slide, bushing, grips and sights. No clue why anyone would do this, but man, she's so smooth, even more than the valor so who knows

Oh, they must have had the barrel hood fluted then. If it operates smoothly and shoots nice, that is really what matters.

Well, I put 100 rounds through it and it shot beautifully, but isn't locking the slide back when empty.

Try different magazines first, it could just be the follower in that one mag. Sometimes Wilsons are known for this.

My one and only DW, a .45 CCO but going to sell it to help fiance a Kodiak. Then going after a .45 ACP Bruin, which I did not know they made until recently.
