Got an email recently from a fellow who noticed that CZ-USA is once again illustrating new Dan Wesson 715 revolvers on their site. As you may recall, this is an old story; you can read it here.
When CZ-USA acquired Dan Wesson in 2005, the first thing they did was promise that revolvers would be an important part of their business. They even showed a prototype “new 715” at SHOT that season. Time passed and nothing more came of the ‘new’ 715, though they continued to show the prototype.
Fast forward to what is nearly 2011 and they’re once again promising revolvers ‘any day now’. Pardon my cynicism, but I’m not about to believe anything until I see the guns on dealer’s shelves. Even then, if they’re not perfect – and I do mean perfect in every way – they’ll be too little, too late. CZ-USA dropped the ball, and it’ll take a lot more than empty promises to get me back into their court.
Put up or shut up, CZ.
