Summary: The description, specs, photo and pricing for the Dan Wesson Specialist pistols.
Dan Wesson’s Specialist is a full-size 1911-style semiauto built on a steel frame and chambered in .45 ACP. The company says it designed it in response to requests from law enforcement.
The slide wears Dan Wesson’s Clark-style serrated rib and dual-colored tritium night sights. The rear sight is the company’s new tactical ledge rear sight with a single amber tritium dot, and the front offers a green lamp with a white target ring.
The forged slide is hand-fit to Dan Wesson’s new forged 70-series tactical rail frame. The frame includes a standard 1913 picatinny rail and features 25 LPI front strap checkering, an under-cut trigger guard and a recessed slide stop for use with laser grips (not included) and tactical operations.
Each Specialist comes standard with Dan Wesson’s ambidextrous thumb safety, extended magazine release and a detachable two-piece magwell. It comes dressed with a set of G10 VZ Operator II grips and two eight-round magazines with bump pads.
Other features include:
- A hand-fit match barrel;
- either a matte stainless finish or Dan Wesson’s matte-black Duty finish (pictured);
- a billet alloy steel fire-control system;
- zero MIM parts;
- a lowered and flared ejection port;
- a beveled magazine well;
- carry bevel treatment; and
- hand-polished flats.
The Specialist comes with a Signature series case and a barrel bushing wrench. It should be available in January 2012.
