    I'm just getting around to posting some recent pickups... I picked up this fine 1911 brand new at my LGS. Got a decent discount for being an NRA member and previously did not own a full size 1911 chambered in 9mm. It’s something that I really never wanted in years past, but I’m coming around on...

    Gents good afternoon! My dream build Wilson arrived today and I just wanted to show her off a little 😎 When I arrived home, I noticed a small nick & scuff in the frame (pictured). I wanted to ask for some opinions on whether or not if this imperfection is worth reaching to Wilson to request...

    Cabot Guns seems to have a different approach to building a custom or semi custom 1911 instead of hand fitting each part of the gun, Cabot starts with a solid piece of stainless steel and uses state of the art machining to make gun parts with areospace tolerances. I don't see how in todays...
  4. Want To Buy Classifieds
    Hey all - I'm renewing my call for my elusive Wilson Combat Professional. I know I'm being picky here, but seems so many of these have come and gone here on classifieds I feel like there have to be plenty out there I would be happy to own.... but are you ready to sell? DM me if so! What I'm...

    I don't find it to be coincidence that two top-tier 1911 makers are both in the same zip code, but not finding the history on if there was a split or what. My curiosity now leads me to ask, how did this come to be?

    I’ve searched the archives of this site for a definitive answer, but I’m still a bit perplexed. The specs on the Wilson Combat website list “bulletproof parts” used in all of their builds across the board. But, are the double-stacks built to the same standards as their single-stack 1911’s...

    I’m picking up a group of guns from a friend of mine and I’m not sure what models the Les Baer and Wilson are. Any thoughts? The Les is low serial number, LB00055. Also, I’ve never owned a Springfeild, but this one looks awesome to me. Any thoughts on this one? Anyone have one? How do they like it?

    So little back story. I knew we were flying out of Nashville yesterday and with my big truck asked the wife where we were parking. Lucky/Unlucky for me our hotel was a fly & stay hotel meaning it had “FREE PARKING”. Yesterday morning we left the hotel at 6 and my truck window was still intact...

    OK. Here’s my standing eight months after stumbling upon the 1911 obsession. What next? I’m trying to create “breadth” before buying similar models from assorted builders.

    For their archive……and I know some of you have this.

    So what specifically makes a SuperGrade different from a regular model WC? Two guns on the table, both naked slides and no markings, identical config how could somebody say ‘for sure this is the SuperGrade.’ Where’s the extra $$$$$ seen or come in?

    Edit: This one is SOLD folks, thank you so much!! It is with great sadness that I offer this up for grabs: a Colt Classic 1911 that I sent off to Wilson Combat for some sleeper work. Before sending it off to Wilson, I replaced the plastic MSH with an OEM Colt arched MSH and I also replaced the...

    It is with heavy heart I post these two for sale. I considered the GI the pinnacle of my collection and quality, and the Wilson just feels so good in the hand. Personal situation dictates I need to part with a few things to cover some things that have come up to help the family. Maybe one day...

    Until Monday for bad weather :ROFLMAO: as posted on Instagram

    I have one of these on order in 9mm. There’s still time to tweak the order. I would prefer the aluminum frame but I ordered it in the full weight steel frame. I ordered it this way because I use mostly high pressure rounds on the range ( 1,350 FPS ) and Underwood 90 grain +P+ ( 1,500 FPS ) for...
  17. 1911 Carry
    So I"m thinking about getting the below holster. Seems like a lot of leather to carry. Thoughts?

    It was a cold day here in Maine and temps are dropping fast, we'll be well below zero with wind chills for the next couple of days and everyone is layered up with their heaviest coats and flannel lined pants. I had to go to the "city" today and run some errands and decided that it's a good time...

    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?
