CZ-USA® Dan Wesson® Specialist Commander Distressed .45 ACP Semi-automatic Pistol
When police departments approached Dan Wesson® to build them 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 home defense, so DW gladly offers it for sale to the public.
The Specialist Commander 1911 is chambered in .45 and loaded with features to satisfy a public servant's special requirements. 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.
The forged stainless steel slide wears DW's 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. Otherwise identical to the standard Specialist, this Distressed version has a hand-weathered frame and slide.
