CZ-USA® Dan Wesson® Vigil CCO .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.
The CCO variant combines a sub-compact officer frame with a compact commander slide and barrel. Ideal for concealed carry, it is light as can be while retaining the sight radius of a Commander model, making it very shootable. Like all of the Vigil pistols, the Vigil CCO wears a set of cocobolo Shadow grips, a forged aluminum frame with 25 LPI frontstrap checkering and a round-top slide with a tactical sight in the rear and a tritium night sight in the front.
