When police departments approached us to build them a more reliable durable 1911 to replace the ones they had been carrying we developed a model just for them. The additions that made it ideal for law enforcement also make it perfect for home defense so we gladly offer it for sale to the public. - A full-size 1911 the Specialist is chambered in .45 or 9mm and loaded with features to satisfy a public servant's special requirements. The forged stainless steel slide wears our 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. - 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 Specialist ships with two 8-round magazines with bump pads (10 rounds in 9mm) and is available in either a matte stainless finish or our Duty Black finish which makes for an especially hardy pistol that scoffs at everyday wear and tear. - Model Specialist Stainless - Caliber 45 ACP - Magazine Capacity 8 - Frame Material Forged Stainless - Slide Finish Bead Blasted - Grips G10 - Overall Length 8.75 in - Barrel Length 5 - Height 5.5 in - Width 1.45 in - Weight 42.3 oz - Trigger Mech Single Action - Front Sight Fixed Night Sight - Rear Sight Tactical Night Sight - Safety Ambi thumb safety grip safety
