Each Dan Wesson Firearms revolver bears the name of Daniel B. Wesson, who founded Wesson Firearms Co., Inc. in 1968. The great-grandson of D. B. Wesson, co-founder of Smith & Wesson, his goal was to build the finest revolvers that the shooting world had ever seen. He accomplished this by creating guns that were innovative, virtually indestructible and capable of match-grade accuracy right out of the box.
In 1996 the Company was acquired by Robert Serva and in 1998 moved to Norwich, N.Y., to reestablish the revolver line. From 1998 to 2000 very few revolvers were produced.
CZ-USA in early 2005 acquired the company and is now managing it as a part of the CZ corporate group. For the first time in the history of Dan Wesson Firearms all key business components to take the company forward exist.
With the union with CZ, Dan Wesson Firearms is now positioned with the recourses and personnel to make it a top manufacturer in the global firearms market. This history will continue to step forward with new and exciting products and innovation from the excellent people of CZ and Dan Wesson Firearms.
