Dan Wesson Specialist - .45ACP


The Specialist is one of the newest additions to the Dan Wesson stable. When police departments wanted 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.
