    Up for your consideration is a unique WC Professional Bobtail that was built for a former WC employee under the direction of Bill Wilson himself. As the pictures show it has been shot very little, I ran a couple hundred flawless rounds through it. I am only letting this one go because I no longer keep safe queens and I just can't get comfortable shooting the bobtail so it has to go. This is the 3rd Wilson I've owned and handled plenty more and this is definitely the best built, not sure if that's because of who it was built for and by or just because it's an older build. It also comes with 6 Wilson magazines, a set of Ed Brown grips as well as a one off set from the great Larry Davidson AKA The Grip Monkey.

    Aside from the Bobtail treatment it also has a high cut front strap and the front of the trigger guard is checkered.

    Price is $2750 fully insured next day shipping to your FFL. I'm looking for an outright sale but I'm open to trades if you have something in 9mm 4" or 4.25"

    Thanks

    So let's give her a little price drop, the market is pretty soft..... $2550 with standard shipping takes it home!

    Question. The front of the dust cover looks like it has some holster wear. Also, the surface of the bobtail looks like someone tried to stipple it. Information about this?

    Holster wear should be expected on a used gun. Also WC offered a stippled Bottom of the mainspring Housing - back when they offered the Bobtail. They still offer stippling. More than likely it was factory spec'd.

    I carried it a dozen or so times but the little wear that is there came from the original owner.

    I called to verify that it was indeed built for Mr. May and I believe they told me 2006 which in my honest opinion is when they were building the best 1911's

    I can call and verify if you'd like

    The red grips are from a previous WC bobtail I had, the grips are horrible to get the real look in a picture. They are by far my favorite grip which is why I held onto them but considering I will never own another bobtail there is no point to let them sit.

    Pay day bump with final price drop. New price is $2200 BUT will only come with the one original magazine. Both sets of grips will still ship with gun and one mag.
    thanks
