    5,350 MSRP for a semi-custom Commander? Nice gun but no drooling here.

    Yes I have been drooling. No I will not pay the extra money for a SG. I would have a full custom built. Just my .02

    I wasn't until I saw this, might be the first Wilson that's caught my attention.
    Too bad my money tree stopped producing.
    Darn the bad luck somebody get this black cat off me. :p

    Since my golden egg laying goose died and spent some time in a pot as soup, I have throttled back on my Wilson Combat purchases. That is however, a very nice 1911.

    It’s amazing what nice grips and good photography can do to a price tag.

    I thought $3800.00 for the Super Sentinel was steep.........That gun would never lever the safe so here it would be useless.....

    Nice Photo though.

    image.jpg The Wilson Commander is a nice gun and I do have a Classic Supergrade in 9mm that I like. However, I have to agree for the price a full custom is the way to go.

    Attached is a picture of my Yost 38 Super Combat Commander. It did not cost much more than the asking price of a Supergrade and it is a big step up in my opinion.

    You do have the cost of the base gun but I really like the Colt roll marks.

    The ability to add things like hard chrome, weld-on magwell, gold line front sight, adjustable rear sight, ball cuts that line up and hand made wood grips is also a plus!

    I’m a little confused on this one ,although WC advertises this as a Supergrade , the roll marks on the pistol don’t.
    It’s a Commander Special . WTF .
    I have several commanders I feel are special and they didn’t cost
    5 grand .

    Same here. It would be useless to me, also. Might be a great deal with folks who make shooters out of them, get a few nicks and dings, and normal usage wear, but I know I wouldn't. All of mine are shooters, but even the nicest of them get shot. But none of them cost $5455 either.:grin::grin:

    086B471E-2F25-4F0A-820E-62E4D1EC0C09.jpeg Only 5300$ for ball cuts that are cut short. No thanks.

    I never quite got the Supergrade. Nice looking gun, too spendy for me.

    It's $5500 if you want the ball cuts to line up. :roflmaro::roflmaro::roflmaro::roflmaro::roflmaro:

    I'm not a big fan of retro style thumb safeties. Then again, these are safe queen guns.

    Agreed that safety would have to be changed.
    At any price !!

    I think the commander has the best balance of all their guns. It’s a fantastic shooter. That being said I don’t think the SG price point is necessary. [​IMG]
