The Dan Wesson Vigil leaves nothing to be desired out of a carry 1911. The frame is a lightweight forged aluminum that has 25 lines per inch on the front and back strap of the grip. The grip has a rounded butt to midgate snagging and to aid in comfort in the palm. The front sight is a night sight, which helps target acquisition in dark settings. The finish is scratch and rust resistant, which is ideal for a carry gun that will be exposed to multiple environments. Overall this 1911 is ideal for anyone who wants a lightweight carry gun chambered in .45 ACP.
