Yeah I guess I'd kick myself too. That's a real nice RZ-10.

Wisdom is merely the realization of how little one knows, therefore I am wise.

Man, those are really nice. Not much into semi-autos, but I REALLY need a DW version.

I recently added these. The first is a very lightly, perhaps unfired except for the factory, PTM-B. The second is an RZ10, pre-CZ, but just barely. The box has CZ on it, but the serial number doesn’t and the markings are more earlier DW. So, it’s a later production Razorback but pre-CZ. The PTM-B is 2002. My PTE-B is 2003. It’s interesting to see how they changed the locations of the rollmarks in just that time.

So, to date, I have a CZ Classic CBOB 10mm, an RZ10, a 2009 Valor, and two blued Patriots, PTE and PTM. Can you tell I like DW 1911s? The CBOB was lovingly worked over slightly by Dave Saverns. The others are stock.

I’m very pleased with both the PTM-B and the PTE-B.

I bought both used, advertised as lightly used. When I received them they both looked as though they had only been fired at the factory. There were no signs of marks or wear at all, they both came with all the “stuff” and looking at the barrel and breach face, it didn’t look like they had been used much at all.

Since you have both, can you see any obvious differences between the M and the E models?  That Marksman/Expert designation has always been a bit vague as to exactly what is different.

Thanks Dan Fan.

Yes, like Dan Fan said. I think that is the only difference. That said, these two have some visible differences simply due to the date of manufacture but not as to features. That was one reason I wasn’t sure I was going to buy the PTM-B, but the price and condition were just too good to pass up.
