Taking the classic .45 ACP, stainless steel 1911 and making it even greater—Dan Wesson created the Heritage. 25 LPI frontstrap and backstrap checkering gives this handgun superior grip capacity while polished flats and cocobolo grips give it a classic touch. 

With a 5-inch barrel, bead blasted slide finish, fiber optic front sight and tactical rear sight, the Heritage is perfect for elevating your range experience.

• Fiber Optic Front Sight, For those who want to acquire the front sight quickly in daytime lighting, a fiber optic sight gathers in light and creates a glowing dot that is hard to miss even against a bright background.
• Tactical Rear Sight, With an abrupt front face, our tactical rear sight allows for one-handed racking of the slide and has a single tritium vial dead-center below the sight’s notch.
• Traditional Cut, The traditional cut keeps the lines of the traditional 1911 slide with a dustcover swoop.
• Tactical Hammer, The skeletonized hammer helps to reduce weight and maintains the clean look of the pistol.
• Medium Solid Trigger, This is a slightly shorter length trigger with serrated face.
• Front strap 25 LPI Checkering, Sharp, 25 LPI checkering, giving plenty of grip without being too aggressive.
• Mainspring Housing Checkering, Our 25 LPI checkering on the flat mainspring housing provides the means for a superb grip.
• Square Butt Profile, The standard square butt profile for those who prefer a traditional look.
