    Hey all,

    Maybe you all can help me out a bit here. I've got a buddy that would like to get a nice 1911 for his son. He mentioned several, by a couple different makers. One that he mentioned was the Wilson Carry Comp. Can anyone give me an idea as to what the street price for these would be?
    I just checked the website and they currently list 2, in the COMPACT frame size, which is what I think he is talking about, the X-Tac Elite Carry Comp in 45acp and 9mm at $3,960 and the Carry Comp in 45acp at $3,200. Both of them are in steel frame. I thought they had these in an aluminum framed version as well and I think he did too since he was talking about carry.

    Questions..

    1. Can you give me an estimated street price one of these would go for?
    2. Does Wilson make a Carry Comp with an aluminum frame?
    3. Are any other companies making a carry comp in an aluminum frame in case Wilson isn't or they won't?


    If you also don't mind, how about giving your thoughts on this pistol and whether you'd like to own one or because of the comp, you'd pass and go to something else.

    Thanks for your time.

    Best way to get an answer would be to call one of their Elite Dealers such as George from Gunslingers.

    I just got a used one with a steal frame very lightly used about a week ago for almost 2600 shipped. I am a huge commander size guy. And this one is a little longer but still has a great feel. To me it shoots like a fullsize gun with pussycat rounds even though I was trying out max book loads.

    I’m not sure if they can be had with a alloy frame but don’t see why not. Here’s mine[​IMG]

    3EAD0754-47A9-4DE0-B979-6F1DFFF51064.jpeg My understanding is they will put a comp barrel in any standard 1911 (not EDC X9) that takes a 4 inch barrel. This is my ULCC that of course has a LW frame.

    I am a dealer, but not an Elite dealer. I think we have a couple sponsors that are Elite dealers. It would be worth your time to contact them for the best price.
