Dan Wesson uses the best components and finishes the industry has to offer creating the best possible 1911. The 1911 Vigil is built around a forged aluminum frame with a stainless slide. The round-top slide wears a tritium sight on the front and a serrated tactical rear. The front strap is checkered 25 LPI, as is the rear that also features a rounded butt for comfortable carry. This Commander model features a shorter barrel and slide. It has a 4.25″ barrel chambered in 45ACP, wood grip, 8-round capacity, and a black duty finish.
