    Perhaps I'm late to the party, but it looks like Wilson Combat is embracing the Glock platform.



    Ken Hackathorn seemed less than thrilled about it, but supportive.



    Larry Vickers seemed thrilled to get his logo on more gear.

    1300 for a modified glock frame and sights...I’m not impressed.

    I can’t bring myself to pay $550 for a Glock let alone one of these modified ones.
    Nope, can’t...

    A very utilitarian tool that can be relied upon with little drama. For some it is a sound choice. I am wearing a Gen 5 G19 as I peck at my phone. Beyond better sights though it kind of defeats their intrinsic appeal to put a lot of money into them, trying to make then into something more. That is what my Sig Legion SAO and 1911's are for.

    I like Glocks. Own more than a few of them and do my own work on them. They are a utilitarian tool, a great carry gun that you can use and not worry about "scratching" (for those who do) a multi thousand dollar handgun. They also make good competition guns for those so inclined. You can change the sight to your liking, polish parts, tweak the trigger for very little money. But dumping $1500 in one is just plain stupid.

    I think they have done a good job developing their package. They have improved appearance and function.

    If it makes money Wilson will do it.

    Well Mr. Hackathorn had a 1911 in his holster while at the range while testing the WC Glock. Speaks volumes.
