The 2023 Dan Wesson Heirloom 1911 graces its polished black frame and slide. The ivory colored grips contrast beautifully with the dark finish. Small details like a brass front bead, commander-style hammer, and solid mid-length trigger add to the elegance of the classic design. As the first Heirloom pistol offered in .38 Super, the 2023 model will be one of a kind, adding value and interest to any select collection.
Dan Wesson makes his Heirloom pistols in small batches, producing hundreds, not thousands, of the classic 1911. The timeless styling and proven design of the pistol make the 1911 Traditional pistol something every gun enthusiast will love.
Although there are many manufacturers from the 1911s, only a few combine custom level tuning, premium parts, and clean, sleek lines like Dan Wesson. The 2023 Heirloom starts with a 70-series frame and slide, forged and then hand-tuned for flawless function and exceptional precision. The billet alloy steel used in the fire control system ensures reliable operation and long service life.
While it claims to be a masterpiece, it will turn heads and take down targets. Dan Wesson houses his match grade barrels in the popular .38 Super. The Heirloom features a beveled magazine for faster reloads, a carry bezel for easier holstering, and a cut-out trigger guard for better recoil control. Its 3.5-5-pound factory trigger also offers a crisp, consistent trigger pull for accurate shooting.
The Dan Wesson estate is a unique piece. It is made with premium parts and is eminently shootable, everything a 1911 should be. This limited production won’t last long!
