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.

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.

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!
