The New DW Wraith 1911 from Dan Wesson

CZ-USA recently announced the DW Wraith 1911, a Dan Wesson branded suppressor-ready stainless steel pistol that comes with a distressed finish in three calibers: 45 ACP, 10mm, and 9mm. I sure hope there’s a pile of quality built in, because the MSRPs are, er, rather whopping. The finish sure looks cool.

From the press release:

CZ-USA and Dan Wesson add to the company’s suppressor-ready pistols with the DW Wraith, featuring a 5.75-inch factory-threaded barrel. The Wraith features High Night Sights to accommodate a suppressor, as a suppressor usually blocks out some or all of the standard 1911 sights.

A full-sized 1911, the DW Wraith is available in 45 ACP, 10MM, and 9MM Luger. The frame and slide on the DW Wraith are made of heavy-duty forged stainless steel, and are coated in Dan Wesson’s distressed version of the gun maker’s Duty finish. Non-distressed parts are finished in black.

The DW Wraith’s G10 grips feature an edgy and 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 Wraiths 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.
