First time posting on DW site. Thank you to everyone for all the great information. I am trying to determine the type of gun and manufacturing date of my 1911. I know it is a RZ-10 Razorback but it appears to be a special series. It is numbered XX out of 150. How do I determine the value of this gun? I can’t find any around that has sold. I have tried to upload some pics but they are too big. Still working on it. Appears to be shot very little if any.

What you have is one of the first run of 10mm 1911’s made by Dan Wesson this was called the Razorback Project and the run was limited to 150. Time frame would have been late 2002 into 2003. Bob Serva owner of Dan Wesson used input from members of Dan Wesson group at the 1911 Forum to bring the 10mm to the 1911 platform, members could order based on features and select desired serial numbers, many of the 150 were pre-ordered for members. They came with a factory test target, dog tags inscribed Dan Wesson RZ-10, factory letter from Bob Serva. Grip medallions were red and black which only the Razorbacks had.
Value is hard to place but I would say at least 1250.00+ you don’t see them very often.

Become a member and you can do a search on the Razorback.
I started going to the 1911 Forum shortly after the project was complete and there was a lot of activity in the forum about the Razorbacks.
I was lucky and scored one Gunbroker not to long afterwards.
Welcome to the forum and Congrats on a great find!
