Unit of Measure:


We recently had police departments and special units who carry the 1911 approach us to build them a more reliable and durable 1911 to replace their current carry pieces. Since we did not have a model to meet their specific needs, we created the Specialist just for them. Knowing our customers the way we do, we knew we had to offer these to the public as well.

The Specialist is a 5” 1911 chambered in .45 ACP that is full of features to satisfy an officer’s special needs.

Starting at the top, the slide wears our popular Clark Style serrated rib and like all of our guns with night sights, the Specialist wears dual-colored Tritium night sights. The rear sight is our new tactical ledge rear sight with single amber tritium dot and the front utilizes a green lamp with white target ring.

The forged slide is mated to our new forged tactical rail frame. The frame utilizes the standard 1913 picatinny rail and features 25 LPI front strap checkering, undercut trigger guard and a recessed slide stop for use with laser grips (not included) and tactical operations. Each Specialist comes standard with our ambidextrous thumb safety, extended magazine release and a detachable two-piece magwell. This duty-ready piece comes dressed with a set of awesome G10 VZ Operator II grips and two 8 round magazines with bump pads.

The Specialist is available in either a matte stainless finish or our matte black Duty finish.

We think this pistol would not only be perfect for duty and tactical purposes but for home defense as well. Check out the Specialist and see if it fits the bill for your needs.

  • Great gun

    Posted by GunSnobJosh on Nov 22nd 2014

    I have owned several 1911 pistols. And so far this Dan Wesson Specialist has been the best. I have had the Springfield TRP and the Smith & Wesson E series. And I can honestly say that the quality of this gun is far better than both. You can see things that Dan Wesson took extra time on, such as the tapering of the guide rod. Where the Springfield and Smith did not have this done. And in the Springfield's case it needed to be sent back because of it gouging the barrel link. I can give many more reasons the Dan Wesson is better such as the finish! But I just encourage to give the gun a try. Great gun!
