The Specialist is one of the newest additions to the Dan Wessonstable. When police departments approached us to build thema more reliable, durable 1911 to replace the ones they had beencarrying, we developed a model just for them. The additions thatmade it ideal for law enforcement also make it perfect for homedefense, so we gladly offer it for sale to the public.
A full-size 1911, the Specialist is chambered in .45 or 9mm and loadedwith features to satisfy a public servant’s special requirements.The forged stainless steel slide wears our popular Clark-styleserrated rib with a single amber tritium dot in the rear sight and agreen lamp with white target ring in front.
The frame sports an integral 1913 Picatinny, 25 LPI front strapcheckering, undercut trigger guard and recessed slide stop toenable the installation of laser grips. Equipped with an ambidextrousthumb safety, extended magazine release and detachabletwo-piece magwell, the Specialist is operator-friendly. It isfinished off with a set of G10 VZOperator II grips that force the handinto the beavertail and hold it there.
The Specialist ships with two 8-roundmagazines with bump pads (10 rounds in 9mm) and isavailable in either a matte stainlessfinish or our Duty Black finish, whichmakes for an especially hardy pistol thatscoffs at everyday wear and tear.
