Our Assessment: Colt’s 1911 served the U.S. Military all the way up to the early 1980’s; nearly every American has seen one on TV, in a movie or in their grandparent’s collection. The design is so legendary; hundreds of other manufacturers have followed its path and tried to improve upon the design, but without much change to the overall operation. This is a Dan Wesson Specialist Commander with a host of upgrades such as a beavertail memory bump grip safety, serrated trigger with overtravel adjustment, skeletonized hammer, slide racking tactical rear sight, a recessed slide stop pin (like the FBI 1911), night sights, match grade barrel, angled rear slide serrations, an extended frame safety, extended magazine well mainspring housing, slide with a serrated rib, and a railed frame to mount your favorite accessories…..holy $h!t this is one HOT 1911. This one is chambered for 9mm and may just be the perfect carry gun. This is a beautiful 1911 pistol with tasteful upgrades that simply showcase the brilliance of a design going strong over 100 years after its invention. If you need something to protect your house or to daily carry, this would be a fantastic option but with its sexy lines and short production run this high condition Commander may be destined for a 1911 collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
