There's no good reason to not update customers for this period of time

Perhaps they are still counting on patient Customers... I'm not one of them anymore  ???

OK I've sort of fallen in love with the Staccato P.
3 pound 6 ounce trigger. Great slide to frame fitment.

I almost went with a Staccato myself while waiting for the DWX, but decided I wanted single stack stainless steel commander regardless. If DW wants a double stack 1911 (2011) to compete with the Staccato and Wilson Combat and Nighthawk 1911s, it should make one. This thing has none of the elegance of a 1911 or a 2011 and won't appeal to many 1911 fans. CZ fans already have a variety of high cap CZs to chose from-- why buy a hybrid that's neither fish nor fowl?

because they want the great Dan Wesson trigger in a pistol with the ergonomic excellence of the CZ 75

Yep. Best of both worlds plus it doesn't require $100+ mags that need tuning.

Given the political environment at the moment, I wouldn't hold out for the DWX.
Go get a Staccato. Just holding that pistol is in itself a great feeling.

Why not panic buy a Staccato? I can think of plenty of other ways of spending money that aren't nearly as satisfying.

The grip is certainly wider (a bit wider for people with smaller hands) but really that gun just feels awesome.

YES  :) YES  ;) YES  :D
But to be honest... I've got the great Staccato trigger with ergonomic excellence of 1911  ::) :P ;)

DWX is worth the money to spend on. If not now... maybe one day, in post pandemic future...  8)

UPDATE AFTER +/- 1,000 ROUNDS:

Staccato's mags seems to be OK now. Pistol came with 3 mags, I've been mostly shooting 2. These 2 become excellent now. No problems with loading, and feeding.
The 3rd one still got a problem to be freely ejected from grip, needs a little help (pulling it down on shaking the pistol). But I know it needs few hundred rounds to be good as other 2.

So far Staccato R is pretty d a m n  great pistol. It just needed some time to become great. :)

I've held both the Staccato C and C2 several times on several occasions recently, but finally backed away.  Fit & finish is good, but at the end of the day, it's a largely polymer and aluminum gun. I bought an Ed Brown KC9 SS instead and couldn't be happier with the quality and feel. The weight is within 1 oz. of my CZ 75 Shadow SA (with a CZC trigger/hammer and CGW 10x bushing), which is what I carry when I need a higher cap for zombies or something.  When I'm feeling puny and want to save 3.5 oz., I'll carry my DW Vigil Commander. I just don't like the top heavy feel of plastic guns.
