    I recent won a few free range passes, and decided to burn one today. While there with my trusty Wilson Combat EDC X9 Long (Gov size), I rented a Canik TP9SFx and a CZ Shadow 2 to try them out, as I've always heard good things about both. There is no agenda here, just that I was interested in...
  2. Range Reports & Reviews
    Made it to the range today, super humid and raining. Lucky for me the only range I have locally has holes in the roof, no working ventilation, brass covering floor, just perfect, but I digress. First up was the SDS Tisas 1911A1. Tested factory mag, and a WC mag, 100% reliability in both with...

    Just took a new WC 9mm out to the range. Upon cleaning I discovered it had their new barrel with the lowered front lug. I thought this was exclusive to the Experior models, but apparently it’s the new standard, at least for full size single stack 9mm I’m assuming. Kind of hard to see in the...

    Finally took this one out to the ranage to put it through the paces. Ran 350 rounds of 7 different ammo types. All perfect with no malfunctions as expected. I’m still not totally comfortable with the red dot. Long term, I’m not sure it’s the set up for me. This will likely be my last gun with...

    Approaching max density in the safes and there is a need for a third safe or a wider and taller second safe. Also, there are several guns with gunsmiths or in the process of being transferred that will need space in the safes. Is there an addicts anonymous group?

    You’ve acquired a broad collection of items that fill specific niches within your obsession, but to outsiders they all appear to be multiple examples of the same thing. It doesn’t matter the hobby. Whether firearms, Martin guitars, violins, fountain pens, thimbles.....whatever. I have a friend...

    Looking for an old school Wilson Combat build maybe on a Colt. Two-tone with a square trigger guard just for the heck of it. I missed out on a couple at auction earlier this year. If none seem to pop up I'm gonna have to get a fancy ACW Prodigy! And missing out on the one that sold here this...

    I am curious about others findings with the various 10 round clips. I know a lot probably are made by the same manufacturer, but to differing specs? I bought a Wilson Combat back in Feb/Mar and I am not happy with it. I tried it the first day and it jammed on the 2nd & 3rd rounds and shot...

    Hi, there! I am not new to firearms, but new to the 1911 bug. This looks like a wonderful forum to help me lighten my wallet. Quick backstory: While browsing through my local gun store, I spied a Sig Max Michel 1911 in the counter. I had no practical use for it, but it was different enough...

    Just got my X9 back from Wilson and I am completely disappointed in their work. Started off when I called to ask if I could drop off at the factory because I was going to go to the nighthawk addicts gathering in May. They said the factory was closed to the public and I would have to pay for...

    I sent in my EDC X9 a few weeks ago to Wilson for the optic cut on the slide, a magwell and a few other cosmetic changes. I decided to get the gray frame as the refinish once the do the magwell and had selected the DLC slide because I was very disappointed with the black AT finish on the slide...

    About 10 years ago, I bought a 1997 model WC 1996a2, and it’s been my favorite handgun ever. A couple weeks ago, I was taking it apart for cleaning, and while trying to get the thumb safety out, the extended arm broke off. I carefully filed the rough edge and used a fine buffing wheel to...

    I have an excellent condition Wilson Combat Experior. It has had 100 rounds through it. Upgraded to a flat trigger, mag well, naked slide. Built 03/09/2020. Comes with everything that came with it from Wilson. I am interested in trading it for a Nighthawk or Guncrafter double stack.

    This is most likely the second to last 5” 38 Super that WC will build. Just got it back from WC to have a missed option corrected, the reverse crown barrel and bushing which is really a fantastic look in my opinion. Stippling might be my new favorite front strap treatment. It feels amazing. Not...
