The Specialist is one of the newest additions to the Dan Wesson stable. When police departments approached Dan Wesson to build a more reliable, durable 1911 to replace the ones they had been carrying, they developed a model just for them. The additions that made it ideal for law enforcement also make it perfect for everyday shooters, so they gladly offer it for sale to the public.
A full-size 1911, the Specialist is chambered in .45 and loaded with features to satisfy a public servant's special requirements. The forged stainless steel slide wears the popular Clark-style serrated rib with a single amber tritium dot in the rear sight and a green lamp with white target ring in front.
The frame sports an integral 1913 Picatinny, 25 LPI front strap checkering, undercut trigger guard and recessed slide stop to enable the installation of laser grips. Equipped with an ambidextrous thumb safety, extended magazine release and detachable two-piece magwell, the Specialist is operator-friendly. It is finished off with a set of G10 VZ Operator II grips that force the hand into the beavertail and hold it there.
