The Vigil 1911 Series From Dan Wesson

Lighter-Weight and More Affordable

Kansas City, KS (October 7, 2019) – A more affordable entry into the Dan Wesson lineup of high-quality semi-automatics, the Vigil Series 1911 pistols are built around a forged aluminum frame with a stainless-steel slide. The round-top slide sports a tritium night sight on the front and a serrated tactical rear sight. The front strap is checkered at 25 lines per inch, as is the rear strap, and the Vigil’s feature a rounded butt for comfortable carry.

The aluminum frame is a real weight saver, too, shaving off approximately six ounces in the Vigil Government-size compared to standard Government-size 1911s. All Vigil 1911’s are made from premium components and feature a beveled magazine well, carry bevel treatment, undercut trigger guards, and hand-polished flats. The Dan Wesson triggers are crisp and creep-free and are set at 3.5 to 5 pounds.  Each pistol comes with two magazines.

In addition to the government model with a five-inch barrel, Dan Wesson offers these Vigil options:

  • The Vigil Suppressor-Ready variant, a Government-sized 1911 with an extended, threaded barrel and high sights with a tritium front.
  • The Vigil Commander with a 4.25-inch barrel, and the same features as the Government-size Vigil. This shorter Commander drops a couple-ounces, making it a mid-sized pistol that is easier to carry on-body all day yet remains very accurate.
  • The Vigil CCO model, combining a sub-compact Officer frame with a compact Commander slide and barrel. Ideal for concealed carry, it is very light yet retains the sight radius of a Commander model, making it very shootable.

All Vigil models are also available in 9MM Luger, which adds another round to the ammunition capacity.
