I recently bought my first DW 1911 and chose a pre-CZ Pointman for the job. Interestingly, the forum Serial Number Registry does not have the PM7 even listed as a model. It is very tight and does not appear to have been fired much .. even better for me. I'll pretend it is new and run it through normal "break-in" procedures for the first 500 rounds. Gonna start with regular target 230-gr. ball and then move to various defensive styles to check functionality.

I've already replaced the factory cocobolo grips with some VZ slimline Zebra G10's, that are fairly aggressive. Had to have the cool T-15 Turbo screws too. Next will be a Wilson Combat extended narrow magazine release and I'll be all set.

Very nice! The first digit after the SV should be the year of manufacture probably a 4 or 5 I would guess. If you were lucky enough to get all the paperwork and fired casing in the envelope you already know the exact date for the pistol. Mine are all great shooters, and their not too shabby on the fit and finish. A very good 'bang for the buck' when they were the new 1911 boys on the block! And still are!

Nice acquisition- the Pointman Series doesn't disappoint. None of mine have had an issue and next I'll suggest the PM-9.....  I mean, you can't have just one, right?

Great little info tid-bit, thanks. The first numeral is a 4 and yes, the test fire case envelope with serial number, has the exact date in 2004.

Went to the range yesterday with my buddy Terry and the Pointman performed flawlessly. I, on the other hand, did not. Terry went to the 7-yd line, but I decided to start at the 15-yd. He had his trusty Ruger MKII and Springfield 1911.

We use cheap paper plates for targets usually. Standing, off-hand, my trigger discipline sucked and I had a consistent pull low and left. Two shots that felt right, were where I wanted them. Below are two targets showing my suckage. Checked the logbook and I hadn't shot a 1911 in four years! Also had a pronounced shake that I don't remember ...

Love this gun. Beers and burgers afterwards .. great time with a new friend and an old one.  occasion
