CZ-USA® Dan Wesson® Pointman 45 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.
The Pointman series is built for the range, with an adjustable target rear sight and fiber optic front. Its forged slide features a Clark-style rib running between the sights to reduce glare and has front and rear cocking serrations to enable easy manipulation.
The forged stainless frame has an undercut trigger guard to get the hand a little higher on the pistol and 25 LPI front strap checkering to hold it firmly in place without being too harsh. Flats on this pistol are soft brushed while the rounds are sandblasted, giving a nice contrast. Double diamond cocobolo grips finish it off. The Pointman shines at both the range and in competition.
