The Limited-Edition Dan Wesson Heirloom 2022 1911

True to the original John Browning design, the Heirloom 2022 is a full-size American-made 1911 pistol. Correspondingly, it utilizes all-steel components for the frame, slide, and parts. Chambered in .45 ACP, rounds are delivered downrange from the 8-round magazine via a 5-inch barrel and commander-style hammer. True to form, the Heirloom features a beavertail grip safety.

Setting the Heirloom 2022 apart is its incredible, ornate scrollwork adorning the slide and frame. Likewise, a bronze PVD finish adds a shiny luster and protects the metal surfaces for a long-lasting family treasure. The bronze finish is set off by black accents on the small parts and mainspring housing. Black G10 grips finish out the two-tone look and modern accents of the traditional pistol.

Although there isn’t an official number yet, the Heirloom is a limited-edition model. So, you might want to get yours fast because they may sell out fast. When I spoke with a representative at Dan Wesson Firearms, she said that the max number is 4,000. However, it will most likely be less than 4,000.


The Dan Wesson Heirloom 2022 1911 is available now in a limited quantity, with MSRP of $2,399.00. For more info, please visit DanWessonFirearms.com.
