A few weeks ago I saw a very reasonably priced used CQB at a LGS and promptly drove down to pick it up. Upon checkout I noticed the guns serial did not match the test target and dog tag. I asked the LGS about it and they couldn’t provide a reason as to why they were different. At the price point it was at I decided to purchase it regardless. The LGS was supposed to look into it for me but I doubt they did.

Anyways, I just emailed Wilson this morning and outlined what had occurred. A few hours later I received a call from their customer service notifying me that they tracked down the previous owner and that he in fact has the paperwork for my CQB. They asked if they could provide him with my contact information and I agreed. The gentlemen just contacted me and we will be mailing each other the correct paperwork shortly.

I own other Wilsons but never had to use their customer service before. I am very impressed at not only how prompt they resolved this matter but also that they conducted it all via phone. Needless to say I will continue to be a loyal customer. I don’t believe they have a rep on here but hope this positive feedback gets back to them in some form.

LMAO..I have your tags and paperwork @JM44. The lgs told me of the error( I grabbed the wrong gun rug/bag when I traded that gun in).

The lgs told me they would contact you so we could exchange build sheets and dog tags. The worthless prick you spoke with NEVER even called me yet he told you I did not have the items EVEN after I informed them I found the items and wanted to get them to you...sheesh. I know that guy . he is as useful as tits on a bull
low and behold Mr Steve Kelley called me and we discussed what happened. I calle d you today and your paperwork and dogtags are ready to ship
wc-cs=the best.


enjoy that gun BTW..it is a great shooter. I bought a 9mm version to replace it. I do miss it but I made out ok

sorry for the error

That's impressive. Especially for someone who is not the original owner.

Too funny! I should have inquired if you were an “addict” when we spoke. Both shoreliners who appreciate boats and gray/black Wilson’s, imagine that!

Re: LGS, I like them and am trying to give them business after my local place closed but they are making it tough. Prior to this they jerked me around for 3 days on a Wilson that was sent there from one of our exceptional sponsors.

Thanks for sharing this great experience with us all. These types of circumstances is what sometimes makes an easy decision when purchasing a new or used gun.
Glad to here all worked out for y’all.

Lol small world indeed.

Their customer service is impressive.

I used WC CS to replace the front sight on my XTAC. Fast and easy with no charge.

Going out to reach to the original owner that's a new level.

Wilson's service has always been impressive ! I have used it 5 times now in 13 years..../ they pay freight both ways, repair warranty work has a priority in shop....always cordial & knowledgeable folks../ I have told this story before ...but...

Bought new gun ...5" Protector, full sized, all stainless, 9mm in 2006. I have averaged 20,000+ rds a year thru gun...but right at 300,000 rds as of today.

In 2012 ..Broke extractor ...got gun back in 7 calendar days ! ( 150,000 rds)
In 2015 ... broke side tube ...got it back again in 10 days. ! ( 200,000 rds)
In 2017..Broke shaft on ambi thumb safety ..They replaced, pads on new safety was smaller than old version ( so scratches under old pads were visible), so they blasted & polished entire gun - under warranty !! (225,000 rds).
In 2018...I was having issues with mags feeding inconsistently...10 rd, ETM mags....I paid for shipping 9 older mags to them, they sent me 9 new ETM mags free under warranty... got them in about a week after they received mine.

Last weekend broke Ejector ...shipped gun to them Monday, its in service now...Kent is handling service ...they are replacing front sight to a gold bead ( after my cataract surgery, my eyes are not great...)... I paid for sight ($82) they waived the labor cost...I think will be done & shipped by Mon worst case ...& it means I will have gun back by Wed...in time for my buddy match next Thurs...so again door to door in 10 calendar days !!

I will never buy another 1911 - other than a Wilson ( I've had Brown, Baer, Springfield, Kimber, etc....).... In the meantime, I will shoot my CQB in .45acp ( in black armor tuff ) for my buddy match this week....

I shipped WC a Tuppersquare to do some work, very early in their foray into that arena. They damaged the frame, and called me. I told em it's a Glock after all, don't sweat it and do what you can. As long as it's safe to shoot I don't care what it looks like as it's a lake and woods carry piece.

By the time they were done fixing the situation and taking care of the customer I almost felt guilty. They did me way more right than I had coming. I give them all the business I can.

Strange, weird story with a happy ending.
