Dan Wesson Wraith 1911, suppressor ready pistol
 Comment(s)

We first heard about the Dan Wesson Wraith in the summer of 2018. Well, after a little bit of a wait, the suppressor-ready 1911 is now available.

Dan Wesson Wraith Details

Wesson makes some of the finest 1911s on the planet, like the concealable Dan Wesson ECO. With the Wraith, Wesson and CZ-USA — Wesson’s parent company — add to its roster of suppressor-ready pistols.

A full-sized 1911, the Wraith features a 5.75-inch, factory-threaded barrel. It also features High Night Sights to accommodate a suppressor, as a suppressor usually blocks out some or all of the standard 1911 sights.

Wesson made the frame and slide on the Wraith from heavy-duty, forged stainless steel. The manufacturer also coated the frame and slide in a distressed version of its Duty finish, while finishing non-distressed parts in black.

The Wraith’s G10 grips feature an edgy and very functional stippling. The extended grip and thumb safeties make the pistol easy to use, even with gloved hands. For added support, Wesson included sharp, 25 lines-per-inch checkering 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 solid texture for racking back the slide. The beveled magwell means easier and faster magazine changes.

A bonus for all you handgun aficionados hellbent on caliber selection: The Wraith is available in .45 ACP, 10mm, and 9mm Luger.  All pistols come with a thread protector. They also ship with two magazines, a Signature Series pistol case, a barrel bushing wrench, one cable lock, and an owner’s manual. Check out the specs and MSRPs below.
