    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...

    Ordered a Wilson combat supergrade commander special all-blued not long time ago and it finally in production now! Can not wait to get it but was told to be patient and the build takes time.

    As I am getting very close to retirement, I am thinking of acquiring an upper level (for me) 1911. My current 1911's are a Springfield Stainless TRP and Range Officer Compact. Both 45's. This will probably be my last gun outright purchase. I don't have unlimited funds so, I'm trying to cap my...

    I'm embarrassed to say this is the first time shooting it and it did not disappoint, there's nothing like the accuracy of a tight, hand fit gun. I may start carrying it and for anyone that has had the benefit of looking down a Yost gold line sight, it's freakin awesome. I'm a Gold bead hater as...

    Hello, I am new here. I am trying to buy a Wilson combat full size 45acp 1911. Currently I have a edc x9l. Well, 45acp 1911 is a must have. Narrowed down between the new experior 45 acp and old school hackathron special. Or pick up a nighthawk president. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    No real rush but putting it out there, I suppose I should have at least one 1911 with a rail and the Wilson (Black armor tuff model only) is on the CA Approved list as is the the 5" GRP Recon in all black nitride (no two tone or other colors - thanks Kaliforniastan!) so if you have one.....

    With mixed emotions, I'm going to move this along. It may be the ultimate conceal carry 1911 from Wilson. I don't carry it anymore and it's not really a range beast so.... It's always been 100% functionally perfect in the 250-400 rounds I cycled downrange and it's a dream to carry, small, light...

    Just picked this up yesterday... lightweight, excellent build quality/fit and finish. Smooth as butter. Looks easy to conceal, even with the 15 round capacity. Slightly larger and thicker than my Wilson EDC X9S. This appears to be a winner and an excellent value for those looking at double...

    I’m thinking of picking up a “nice” 1911 and trying to decide which route I want to go. It seems wilson and nighthawk are more production where the alchemy and guncrafter are full on custom builds. What are the advantages/disadvantages of production vs custom? Im not too concerned about lead...

    Hi guys, I touched on this in another thread, but are there any quality holsters that have Kydex to secure the slide and leather for the rest of the holster? Would that even work properly? I haven’t seen anything from reputable companies, and definitely not for the guns I want it for. (EDC X9S...

    I just bid on and won an WC Experior 4" railed double stack. What holsters do you guys recommend for concealed carry? Either AIWB or 4 o'clock IWB.

    Assuming a gun comes with a 25 yard guarantee, what would be reasonable expectations for 50 yard accuracy out of the same gun? Wilson obviously has it's 1" @ 25 yards. ACW has 1.5" @ 25 standard. While some of the others like NHC, Brown, etc. don't explicitly state theirs, I'd assume pretty...

    Looking to part with this very lightly used WC. I have only put about 250 rounds through it so it is almost new. Grey/blue frame with black slide. 3 dot night sights. Comes with everything from factory plus an OWB shark skin holster and IWB cowhide holster. Includes all original paperwork and 5...

    I recently posted a few questions here for guidance on a WC, GC, STI, Eb....etc. Well I settled on an Xtac Elite .45 from Wilson they posted on the website for sale and I had my local dealer jump on it. We had to add Ambi safety to it for me being wrong handed.. :)

    Been carrying a Guncrafter NM 45acp and a Commander Wilson 38 Super LWT. I would like to find a full size 38 Super. Maybe even a 9mm that I can convert to 38 Super.

    Just returned from a trip to Thunder Ranch where a friend and I took the 3-day DH1 class. Clint Smith and his team did a wonderful job teaching and reinforcing the fundamentals to us, as well as teaching us some new things along the way; the class consisted of 14 participants that were pretty...

    What is Wilson's Armor Tuff finish circa 2014? (I think Wilson changed it at some point since) Nice 1911 on the Classifieds with this coating. Is this finish subject to being blemished as nitride is if using a gun scrubber type product or Hornadys One Shot Cleaner? I searched the Web some on...
