All I can say is I love my Colt Government XSE.
nothing colt makes even comes close to the fit and finish of
a dan wesson
Not true at all.
Colt's Custom Shop puts together some very impressive pistols - equal or better than Dan Wesson.
Even the assembly-line pistols (like the XSE) coming from Colt these days are very well-built. The slide-to-frame fit and bushing fit of my XSE are as perfect as any 1911 I've ever handled.
