bullet,

The physics will give you better accuracy. That's always going to be the result of a longer barrel. I can't comment on the reliability or how the gun feels in the hand as I've never...

I couldn't agree more with you Tatoo1911. It only takes a quick look at the production 1911 offerings to see that FCS come on virtually every gun. I also agree with you on target sights and modern...

If seven are going on Wilson pistols what guns are the other two going on? Sorry, someone had to ask. :p

Denver1911,

I misunderstood your thread but I get it now after reading your post that I quoted above. At first I thought you had somehow stained your Armor-Tuff and wanted to soak it in something...

Thanks! It's amazing how both the old and new sights look identical from the side. This isn't the first time I've noticed it. :)

rick4400,

Do both guns of your compacts have the rear battle sight? The reason I ask is because I know Wilson recently rolled out a new rear battle sight and from the sides both of your guns...

ca,

A small piece of black electrical tape placed over the f/o rod will prevent it from gathering light and will reduce the glow significantly. Of course it will still pick up some light from the...

You said that you already have other carry guns and that you really don't need another so with that said I'm going to suggest that you go with a full size CBQ, Protector or X-Tac...

Mac-427,

That's a very nice looking X-Tac. Terry Peters did an outstanding job commissioning those grips from VZ. Out of curiosity I'd like to see what they look like with the WC medallions...

brzusa.1911,

Are you specifically looking for a carry gun? If not stick to full size. I would also suggest sticking with good ol' .45_ACP. Hey, that's also my screen name. :p The choice...

Tattoo1911,

Many congrats on your new Wilson. I completely agree with what you said about Les Baer. I would never bash him either. He is certainly a VERY successful businessman and from what I...

Thanks for sharing that. I figured that would be the case. Of course for anyone who prefers to keep the humidity levels in their safe lower the easy solution is simply to remove the grips...

g28,

That's all excellent theory but in the real world it doesn't work unless your house is perfectly sealed. Mine is not and additional humidity does enter. Example: My heat came on as I was...

ca,

Turning on the heat would actually increase humidity. Warm air is able to hold more moister than cold air which is why we have so much humidity in the summer and we artifically add moister...

It's a Nor'easter buddy, not a tropical depression. :) Tropical systems have warm cores, a Nor'easter is a cold core system. Oh and before you ask I'm not a meteorologist although I wouldn't...

AR15corvette,

Fair enough. I appreciate your honesty. Well, if you're looking to do something fancy with a FLGR you could have it fluted. I'm not sure if Wilson will do that for you or not but...

It's too late now because your gun is kitted but I would have suggest that you incorporate any personalization into the grips rather than having it engraved into the steel. This way if...

I understand you changed it to Wilson in house blue but from the picture it looks more like Turnbull blue. That's not a criticism, on the contrary, it's a complement to Wilson's bluing...
