You can't really discuss Custom 1911's without Bill Wilson getting a chapter, the Wilson Custom Shop well established and incredibly busy by the time this Colt left Hartford in 1990, Bill and crew had developed their benchmark magazine, many Custom parts and even a book written on the subject of the custom Combat Auto in 1991 with help from Cam Hopkins and Jerry Barnhart. The Growth of that parts catalog and subsequent writings would open floodgates making it much easier to build quality custom 1911's for many a one man shops.

This Wilson Combat Custom Colt is a lovely example of the shops work from the 90s, beautifully fit and checkered. This gun, even though stainless wears the Classic matte Hardchrome finish. Gun has some holster wear, and an idiot mark, but is still quite clean and crisp. There was a ding in the beavertail the previous owner sanded out, leaving a bare spot, if the buyer wants I am happy to send the BTGS in with my next batch of hardchrome to have it replated.

Dammit Karl, I've run out of play money otherwise it would be mine. Nice gun, a great representation of the days before factory built "semi-custom" 1911s took off.

I do not know why this remains available, but here it is, Lets see if anyone wants an early morning deal...

rock bottom before it head to auction, $1911 shipped
Shocked personally!

This is definitely one of those if only there wasn't a roster or if I had escaped Kali already guns.
