Dan Wesson’s 2023 Heirloom Pistol – Experience Its Timeless Quality

The 2023 Dan Wesson Heirloom 1911 adorns decorative scrollwork on its black high-polished slide and frame. Ivory-colored grips contrast beautifully with the dark finish. The little touches like a brass front bead, commander-style hammer, and solid medium-length trigger add to the classic design’s elegance. As the first Heirloom pistol offered in .38 Super, the 2023 model will be unique, adding value and interest to any curated collection.

Dan Wesson makes its Heirloom pistols in small batches, producing hundreds, not thousands, of the classic 1911. The pistol’s timeless styling and proven design make the traditional 1911 pistol something every gun enthusiast will love. 

Though there are many manufacturers of 1911s, only a few combine custom-level fitting, premium parts, and clean, elegant lines like a Dan Wesson. The 2023 Heirloom starts with a 70-series frame and slide—forged and then hand-fit for flawless function and outstanding accuracy. Billet alloy steel used in the fire-control system ensures reliable operation and long service life. 

While intended as a showpiece, it will turn heads and topple targets. Dan Wesson chambers its match-grade barrels in the popular .38 Super. The Heirloom features a beveled magazine well for faster reloads, a carry bevel for easier holstering, and an undercut trigger guard for better recoil control. Its 3.5-5 pound factory trigger also delivers a consistent, crisp trigger squeeze for accurate shooting.  

The Dan Wesson Heirloom is a one-of-a-kind piece. It’s made with premium parts and is eminently shootable—everything a 1911 should be. This limited production run won’t last long!
