When police departments approached Dan Wesson to build them a more reliable, durable 1911 to replace the ones they had been carrying, DW developed a model just for them.
A full-size 1911, this Specialist is chambered in 9mm and loaded with features to satisfy a public servant's special requirements. The forged stainless steel slide wears a 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.
