    NO LONGER FOR SALE, TOO DANG GOOD TO SELL!

    Ok, I've went on a buying spree, now I need to sell some lol.

    I bought this in October from a well known member. I planned to keep it, but decided I prefer non-railed. I will say this, it has an absolutely amazing trigger on it!!! I bought it with approximately 500 rounds through it, and I put 200 through it. It does have some light holster marks on the slide from the previous owner. You can see them in the pictures, but they look MUCH worse in the pics than in person! You have to hold it at an angle to see them. Somebody probably knows how to get them out, I can't even feel them.

    Wilson Flat wire spring and guide installed
    EGW mainspring housing installed
    Also comes with the factory parts.

    Includes the original box, lock, 2 DW mags, etc

    If this were an issue for someone, they could send this off to @Steve Owens to be sand blasted.

    Overall, it looks like a great deal for someone who is in the market for a railed gun. GLWS!

    What caliber is this? I'm seeing 45 acp in the title, but 10mm in the photo.

    It's 45. I just leaned it up against my ammo storage box that had 9mm and 10mm in it!

    This is a very good deal on this pistol. I own several Dan Wessons and they are just an absolutely amazing factory gun. They imho could all use a little tweaking which takes them more to the semi custom line, and then just a little more in the way of aesthetics and you are well on your way to a fine custom pistol. I'd say if this were a 9mm I don't think i could contain myself and would have to cram it onto an already abused CC.. lol.. Great buy, for a great gun. Somebody is gonna get a great deal on this one. And Yes I can bead blast just about any markings on these pistols.

    I talked to Steve about bead blasting the slide and it's very reasonable! I know the market is soft right now, but I'm not going to lower my price on this one - it's seriously too good of a shooter! I'll probably leave it up a few days and if nobody snatches it up I'll keep it. I don't NEED to sell it, just feel guilty having so much money wrapped up on guns sitting in the safe haha

    Don’t feel guilty! If you don’t need to sell don’t! Just my opinion. I’ve got a commander specialist in 9mm and haven’t shot it yet, just sits there along with a half dozen other firearms but there mine:)

    It's just new territory for me, I bought my first ever gun (a Springfield XDs 4.0) 14 months ago, and currently have 24!!!

    I feel ya, I started about 4 years ago and I’m at about the same number plus another 20 high end pocket knives! Lots of mags and accessories and every time I sell something because I don’t use it or have too many/much I end up buying it again or replacing the item with something even costlier!
    So just keep it!

    Dang it... See, my fellow Addicts are enablers!!

    Specialist is officially no longer for sale!

    I'll more than likely be sending the slide to @Steve Owens to blast, from what I hear he'll make it look extra purdy! :grin:
