Dan Wesson has introduced two intriguing all-metal pistols by leveraging its expertise in manufacturing 1911s and the company’s familial ties to CZ-USA.
A partnership between Dan Wesson and CZ-USA has resulted in the DWX—a model which blends the two pistol families.
The full-sized 1911 is available in .45 ACP, 10 mm and 9 mm Luger.
The Dan Wesson TCP (Tactical Carry Pistol) is a Commander-style 1911, a full-size “Government” length frame mated to a shorter slide and barrel.
Dan Wesson Firearms is celebrating its golden jubilee with a commemorative M1911 pistol.
In 1950, Colt introduced the Commander, an M1911-style pistol with a reduced-length (4.25") barrel, an aluminum frame and 9 mm Luger chambering. Originally it was designed to fill a military request for a lighter, more compact pistol.
The great grandson of one of Smith & Wesson’s founders, Dan Wesson created his own gun company and developed revolvers with an interchangeable barrel system.
