Recently, Dan Wesson announced a new series into its 1911 lineup with the Vigil Series. The new Vigil Series uses a forged aluminum frame and a stainless steel slide which accounts for an six ounce reduction in weight. The new 1911s are priced at a more affordable price point compared to other Dan Wesson 1911 pistol lineups.

The Vigil Series

The new Vigil series features: an aluminum frame with a stainless steel slide, tritium front sight with a serrated tactical rear sight. The front and rear back strap receive aggressive checkering with a rounded butt to help aid in conceal carrying. Other features include undercut trigger guards, carry bevel treatment, hand polished flats, a 3.5-5 lbs trigger pull, and two magazines.

Dan Wesson offers the Vigil Series in five different configurations. The Vigil comes in 9mm or . 45 ACP, full-size or commander, and suppressor ready configurations. The Vigil full-size and commander have the same features. The Commander just comes with a 4.25 inch barrel.

The CCO Vigil combines sub-compact officer frame with a commander slide. The CCO Vigil was designed for concealed carry person in mind.

All Vigil models are available in 9mm or .45 ACP. The Dan Wesson Vigil starts at $1,298 for 9mm and .45 ACP.
