It's an extremely well made & VERY tight gun. It's supposed to take 300-500 rounds to break-in, with it being stripped & cleaned after every 50 rounds during that break-in period. I've never had to do that with any gun before, but then I've never had such a fine firearm before. It come very highly recommended by 1911 experts and I can see why they say Dan Wesson is the best production 1911 made. Inside & out, everything fits perfectly and very tightly. The downside of that is the break-in period needed to loosen the gun up.
I've only had it to the range once, where I fired a bit more than 60 rounds. Fine performance, except the slide would often not go back into battery fully, making me push it into place myself (it would be a fraction of an inch out of battery). That's the downside of excellent quality & extremely close tolerances. If you're used to loose guns that rattle when you shake them, this will be a totally new experience to you, just as it was to me.
I didn't even know this gun existed till I asked "Springfield vs Kimber?" and the Dan Wesson name kept coming up. Well, when you're on a 1911 forum and folks are telling you it's the best choice you seriously have to give their suggestion some weight & research it as I did. The PM9 is very hard to find, but I was lucky enough to get a great price on it at Hinterland. I wasn't previously familiar with Hinterland, but their service & price was excellent & and I'd certainly buy from Hinterland again.
I think I'm going to really love this PM9 once I finally get it broken in. I've never personally handled a gun with such extremely tight tolerances before. Everything it literally perfect, both inside & out. It simply exudes quality. It's not cheap, but it proves that you get what you pay for (and then some).
