Wilson has stopped offering dog tags, FYI, so anyone with them the value of your Wilson 1911 just increased 10% :roll:

IDK, I got a new Wilson on Friday, no tag, I called this morning and they said, and I quote:

"they stopped including them a while back"

Someone really likes them, the three Wilson’s I’ve gotten used never came with any?! I’ve never even seen a set.

It's hardly a deal breaker, it does have the serial # of your gun on it so they were individually stamped. How they did that is anyone's guess.

Don't we have a @Wilsoncombatrep on here to fill us in ?

Correct, I bought all of them without.

I don’t remember ever seeing a Wilson rep on here?? You would think there would be some dirt if presence, I mean we’ve got the GI guy and gal and the Nighthawk dude!!

There is one active and really helps out a lot on the other forum. I do wonder why he’s never joined here?

Anyway I think the dog tags are cool and a neat add. But the inspection sheet and test targets are more important to me. Not sure why though as they could be just as disconnected to the gun as the tag is.

Would be funny if Glock started doing polymer dog tags. :)

Making them is pretty easy.

I have 1 WC and it has them.

All of my WCs have had them and still do.... I attach them to the outside of the WC bag so I know at a glance which bag goes with which gun. I will be disheartened when my X9L gets here and doesn't. Perhaps I will start a side business making them on request for the new upcoming buyers.... just to complete the experience of "once was."

Worthless trinkets but hey some people like to pay for that stuff. Nothing is free as the cost is always absorbed into the final product. Would much rather have something that actually improved the product.

Have not bought a new Wilson for three years. Just bought another used Wilson and all six of mine have a dog tag. I’m very disappointed that they have discontinued this and have not heard of this prior to this thread. When I was touring Wilson again in May nothing was said about discontinuing the dog tags. My daughter has a new one that should be shipped pretty soon and I’m sure she will be disappointed if there is not a dog tab with it.

I believe this is the reason for them and what WC does themselves. When the gun ships they detach it from the bag and send it.
