    Hey guys,

    Im still new to this site. A friend of mine has a Wilson Combat "Defensive combat" for sale. The gun appears to be in great condition. I spoke with Wilson and learned there was only a few hundred made (between 200-300) and it was only made for about 3 years. He wants $3250 for it. What do you guys think?

    Probably too high for most any used Wilson these days, but if you are friends you could at least let him down gently.

    Way to high for a used Wilson IMHO and the front cocking serrations would be a deal breaker for me but maybe you like them, IDK.

    For that kind of money you can get real close to just ordering a gun the way you like it and for less money you can buy tons of low-round count Wilson's. In fact, there's a gorgeous WC in SS for sale in the classified now for about $500 less.

    As an example and I have no relationship to the seller.

    welcome
    check gunbroker items "sold for" before buying. Price is too high IMHO

    Turns out the gun was assembled/made by Greg Martin. Which is pretty nice

    I’m not familiar with that model, but it looks really similar to a CQB. I’ve seen used CQB’s advertised for under $2k on a semi regular basis lately. Personally, I wouldn’t pay over $2k for it.

    I didn’t see the test target and didn’t realize the gun was almost 20 years old. Given that info, it’s really similar to my 1996a2, and in my opinion, it should be worth in the neighborhood of $1200-1500. I wouldn’t take that for my 1996a2, but that would be absolutely top end on what a WC gun of that age should be worth (in my opinion).
