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.

Love this 1911! Dan Wesson is king of the hill for "bang for your buck" pistols, and the fit and finish on this gun is absolutely superb. Better than some other 1911s costing twice the price.

As an "entry level" 1911 from Dan Wesson, the gun is very nicely done. Slide and barrel fitting is rock solid with no discernable play. This is my first 1911 so I do not know how other triggers are setup, but except for a bit of pretravel to get to the set-point, the trigger release is Very nice -- comparable to my 9mm CZ 75 Target Sports. After the first 50 rounds and a cleaning, a young friend of mine using a bench rest and sandbag shot a 5 shot group of less than 1.5 inches using Remington UMC 230 grain FMJ. Clearly, the gun can shoot better than its 71 year old owner can see. I recomment ithe CZ Heritage for anyone who wants a forged steel and machined bar stock 1911 45 acp that is made in the United States. Bud's ordering was great too -- received in less than a week.

It took two weeks for it to come in, which I was told due to ice and snow storm when I ordered it. Normally it only takes four or five days. The gun came in perfect condition. No issues what-so-ever at the range. I've had numerous 1911's,"Sigs,Para's, 3 different model Colts. This one is my favorite, the fit and finish on this gun is beautiful. Thanks Buds!!

This is my 2nd Dan Wesson 1911. I also have a Valor V-bob in black. I must say this heritage is the best bang for your buck out there. this gun has the same components and internals as their Valor series. Only difference is cheap grips (which I put some nice mammoth ivory ones on anyway), no front chekering (which I don't care for much anyway), no rear nite site, and some finishing details. But all in all just as nice as my $1800 v-bob as far as quality goes. I have researched 1911's to the moon and back and you just wont find a nicer "production" one out there. NO MIM PARTS and absolute tight, and accurate. I bought my V-Bob and Heritage for the same price as a custom and really, I can't tell the difference in quality, only price..

Don't hesitate on this one, skip the SA TRP, Colts, and Kimbers and get the Dan Wesson.. Awesome quality, fit, and finish.
