The Heritage is our entry-level 1911, allowing shooters to experience Dan Wesson quality at the most affordable price possible. Even though this model is our most economical, it features all the same quality components that we use in our 1911 models.
A Government-size model, it has a 5-inch barrel and is chambered in .45 ACP. The slide features our Clark-style rib and wears a tritium front sight and plain black, snag-free rear. The sides of the slide have a nice brushed polish on the flats while the rounds are sandblasted to match the matte forged frame with undercut trigger guard and smooth front strap. Grips are double diamond rubber.
The Heritage is a great introduction to the Dan Wesson 1911 experience and we are confident it will become an heirloom, handed down from generation to generation.

I love 1911's and this one is an absolute gem. Easily beats Colt in terms of fit and quality, and a whole different league than SA. The slide is fit so well you'd think you had a custom (one of these cleanings I'm going to try some SlideGlide and see how it performs). Please note, the current models are shipping with the black polimer grips (not wood as pictured), but at last review, the DW websight was selling Cocobolo grips closeout (leftover from conversion perhaps) for just $20. My only other complaint is that it doesn't come with an adjustable rear sight (you need to go to the Valor for that) and DW doesn't offer one as an accessory. I've heard that SA sights fit the Heritage, but have not gone down that road yet. Beautiful solid gun that is the gem of my collection!

I'm in love with this 1911! It is very accurate and it is well balanced which makes it a dream to shoot.
I can't wait to buy additional DW 1911's.
Get this pistol, you won't be disappointed!
Bud's was great. It took one week exactly from when I dropped my payment in the mail until the shipment arrived at my FFL.
Thanks Buds Gun Shop!

This is a very nice gun, I own serveral 45cal's this gun is Really nice. It did not look like the pic at all.came with black grips and a whole lot less polished parts. Gun shoots great however, and came very clean. Shipment was delayed one day,for no reason. At the end of the day I like the gun I got over the pic

Order this Heritage on a Friday and had it on Tuesday. Buds ships very fast! This model is awesome! The quality is XLNT and shooting it is like something I have never felt in a handgun. Dan Wesson builds a great 1911 and worth every cent even after the 2010 price increase.
