CZ-USA® Dan Wesson® 50th Anniversary Limited Edition 1911 .45 ACP Semi-automatic Pistol
In 1968, Dan Wesson struck off on his own to manufacture fine firearms that deviated from the standards. 50 years later, the company he founded is still going strong and building unique products. Though there are many manufacturers of 1911s, not many combine custom-level fitting, top-shelf parts and clean, elegant lines like Dan Wesson—let alone at such an attainable price.
They produce only a few thousand handguns a year, using the best components and finishes the industry has to offer. They painstakingly hand-fit and polish each and every part, creating the best possible production 1911. Even a custom pistol-maker would be hard-pressed to build a gun that would outperform a Dan Wesson straight out of the box.
To celebrate 50 years of excellence, Dan Wesson has decided to commemorate the occasion with a very special 1911. Understated class was the theme of the build, with tasteful engraving on slide and frame, slide rollmark delete and a high-polish nitride finish to resemble a quality deep blue. G10 grips have the look of ivory and are inlaid with DW logo medallions while the grip safety and recoil spring plug are engraved and gold-inlaid with TMTMDWTMTM and TMTM50thTMTM, respectively. The round-topped slide is fitted with a brass bead front sight, making this one of the classiest Dan Wessons made to date.
