    I'm looking for a pre 2020 style DW Specialist .45 in stainless, #01993, hopefully NIB or well cared for. This one here. I thought I had one lined up but it was sold as new and shipped to me well used, so I'm dealing with that return and on the hunt again. I'm also considering one in Duty...

    Gentlemen I have been looking at several options just wanted to see if you guys had and personal experience. For the range/outdoors camping and sometimes carry. Looked at DW, Fusion and Colt Combat but would have to adjust the Mainspring housing to make it bobtail($200-$300). Thoughts? Thanks...

    Has anyone here picked up a 2020 5” DW Specialist in black yet? I just ordered one and am curious on everyone’s thoughts. One thing it appears they changed, that I’m not necessarily happy about, is removing the recessed Slide Stop. I’m also not sure which style rail I like better yet. The old...

    For sale is a duty coat full size 9mm specialist. This is the last of the “older” generation specialist before the FCS and omission of the recessed slide stop pin. Never shot or disassembled. Pictures will speak to that. Was not a display model and the hood shows minimal racking, only to make...

    Hi guys, Trying to decide which should be my next 1911. This will be for EDC and Night Stand duty. (Which is why I am thinking a rail) This will be in 9MM, but maybe 45 if I can live without the extra 2 rounds. I carry now a S&W 1911ES. Purchased a SA RO Elite Compact in 9MM, but I lost all...

    I'm in the market for a 9mm 1911 with a rail. Looking for a headspace check here to see if I've overlooked anything, but I think I have a decent read of the current market in 2019. So, given a budget of $1500+/- I think there are three candidates that bear attention: Dan Wesson Specialist. They...

    I was happy before. I really was! I had trained and trained and trained and trained with my DA/SA SiG Sauers to where that first shot stopped tracking hard left and follow-up SA shots were natural as anything. I got as proficient as I was ever likely to be with the format. I had a nice...
