Dan Wesson Wraith

CZ-USA and Dan Wesson are adding to their lineup of can-ready pistols with their Wraith, a full-sized 1911 that features a 5.75 in. factory-threaded barrel. The new Dan Wesson 1911 is available in three calibers: 45 ACP, 10mm, and 9mm Luger. All ship with high night sights to clear any obstruction by an attached suppressor.

We’re advised that frame and slide are manufactured with “heavy-duty” forged stainless steel, coated in a distressed version of the DW Duty finish. Any non-distressed parts are finished in black.

Further description is supplied by both the release and the DW/CZ-USA website:

The DW Wraith’s G10 grips feature an edgy and very functional stippling. The extended grip and thumb safeties make the DW Wraith easy to use even with gloved hands. For added support, sharp, 25 lines-per-inch checkering is found on the front strap and mainspring housing. The Wraith’s undercut trigger guard provides a higher grip for better handling and stability.

The Wraith’s ejection post is lowered and flared for better ejection of spent brass. Forward slide serrations provide a nice texture for racking back the slide. The beveled magwell means easier and faster magazine changes.

All DW Wraith’s come with a thread protector, and ships with two (2) magazines, a Signature Series pistol case, a barrel bushing wrench, one (1) cable lock, and an owner’s manual.

You shoot one of these, or any 1911 for that matter?

Per the manufacturer, weapon features include:

Ball End Mill Cut, which “…accentuates the carry cut and slightly modifies the appearance.”

Frontstrap 25 LPI Checkering, which is “…sharp, 25 LPI checkering, giving plenty of grip without being too aggressive.

High Fixed Night Sight, which is purpose-built for use with suppressors, these two-dot night sights stand tall enough to clear most pistol cans. A vertical front face to the rear sight allows for easy one-handed racking of the slide.

Magwell, thanks to which “…reloads are made easy; our magwell helps to funnel the fresh mag into the gun.”

Dan-Wesson-1911

Mainspring Housing Checkering, “Our 25 LPI checkering on the flat mainspring housing provides the means for a superb grip.”

Medium Solid Black Trigger, “This trigger is a slightly shorter length, black trigger with a smooth face.”

Dan-Wesson-1911

Square Butt Profile, “The standard square butt profile for those who prefer a traditional look.”

Dan-Wesson-1911

Square Hammer, “This is our spin on an edgier, tactical, Commander hammer.”

Top Rib, “A Clark-style rib on the top of the slide helps knock down glare.”

    How many folks buy a $2400 1911?

    • Judge Mental

      Enough to make it worth their while, apparently. CZ makes good guns to sell, not to stack up in warehouses. Most people that choke on the idea of a quarter-million dollar car have never driven one. Same. If it’s worth it to you and you can afford it, buy it. I love all of my DW guns.
