Kicking off what we plan to be a regular but especially limited series, the Heirloom is a piece of art. Instead of one of our standard finishes, the frame sports a gorgeous color case hardening the result of a heat treating process that leaves a layer of carbon in a brilliant and random color pattern with golds, grays, blues and purples. An ornately engraved slide sits atop this fine frame, with ample scrollwork and minimal text in typical Dan Wesson fashion. Frontstrap and backstrap are checkered 25 LPI for the ideal amount of grip, and a set of smooth French walnut grips give beautiful contrast. A classy set of sights are perched on the round-top slide with a serrated U-notch in rear and a brass bead out front.
