    Is there a way to create an advanced search for classifieds and somehow "save" it so that it's constantly running and will hit me via email and DM if something pops up that meets those qualifiers? I'm tired of missing out on items I've been hunting and seeking simply because I'm not one of the...

    Over the years, I've built quite the stable of Wilson's. They are by far my favorite out of the many different builders I've owned over the years. Recently, I was out shooting my oldest WC, a stainless CQB in .45 that was built in early 2014. Upon cleaning, I noticed a "WD" stamp on the...

    Anyone have a Sentinel XL? I’ve never held one but am intrigued by the 4” slide and sentinel frame. I have small / medium hands and prefer smaller guns for reference. I know many may prefer the X9s. Just looking at true 1911 platforms. If you can call a Sentinel“true”?

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone here may have both the aggressive and standard versions of these grips, perhaps as they came on a couple different Wilson's you purchased. If you had to pick, which would you prefer to keep buying going forward? I would like to refresh the grips on my Wilson and...

    Wandering if anyone could give me a ballpark figure on the value of an older Wilson cqb? I really don’t know the age, all I know is he’s had it a long time, and it’s a full size in 45 and it’s green. He was a friend of mine and he passed away, and his wife is going to be selling his guns. I...

    I emailed WC customer service last week and asked to verify no more 38 super guns. They emailed back yesterday that it's true. But will make one still with few remaining components left. But a gun would have to be near the kitting phase. I ordered a WC Hackathorn Commander on April 4th so I...

    The pistol I just bought came with this oversized button. Is it just covering a standard size release, or is it a separate button altogether? I unscrewed the screw in the middle using an Allen wrench. At that point, is it supposed to just pull off? I didn’t want to start applying excessive...

    At the range today, I stumbled across a deal I couldn’t pass up. Well, I guess I could have, but I chose not to. ;) Could anyone please tell me if the mag release and mag well appear to be Wilson Combat parts?

    I've had this Stealth for a while, it's an amazing shooter, very, very accurate and the heavy cone barrel coupled with being chambered in 38 super make it a very solid combination and it's a lightweight too :love: It always struggled with SD ammo even though I could shoot a 1,000 rounds of FMJ...

    Did Wilson ever do there armor tuff finish in a silver, almost like stainless. I’m looking at a Wilson ULC and it’s clearly not hard chrome and the owner says it’s there armor tuff or whatever they call there finish but the color is silver. The frame is obviously alloy on these guns and the...

    Recently purchased this off the forum thinking I would carry it, however I have HUGE hands and much rather a full size frame. Looking to sell to buy another gun listed on here, but would also be open to trades for other full-size/commander guns. I’ll include original listing here and pics as...

    I have never bought a Wilson before but I'm hoping to do so in the near future. I was browsing the different models on the Wilson Combat website and it seems most commander models (with the exception of the newer ACP line) feature the roundbutt frame. I am not a big fan of the roundbutt. Is it...

    Does any of the 1911 old guard remember when Clay & Wings/Rankin Arms was contracting these RDP (Rankin Defense Pistol) with Wilson Combat and what the story was? Is it as simple as a plain old Wilson with some additional engraving?

    Acquire this pistol at the very end of 2020, I have put approximately two boxes of Speer Lawman 115 grain down the pipe. I started out with zero 1911s in 9 mm and now I have four. Gun fund is up against the wall so I'm letting go of the most expensive of the four. As you see this is a very...

    For your consideration, this is the first Wilson Combat I ever bought. A 2007 build CQB Elite, that David Atchely had a hand in. I would estimate up to 2,000 rounds through it, but maybe slightly less. It has run perfectly for me over the years with zero malfunctions. Gun has no wear marks...
