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 Distressed is chambered in .45 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 a right 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 and is available in our distressed Duty Black finish. 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. Available in Commander and full-size variants. Otherwise identical to the standard Specialist, this Distressed version has a hand-weathered frame and slide.

Features:

  • Fixed Night Sight: A Novak-style snag-free sight with tritium self-illuminated vials.
  • Tactical Rear Sight: With an abrupt front face, our tactical rear sight allows for one-handed racking of the slide and has a single tritium vial dead-center below the sight’s notch.
  • Inverted Rib: To cut down on glare our top rib is cut into the slide.
  • Tactical Hammer: The skeletonized hammer helps to reduce weight and maintains the clean look of the pistol.
