Wilson Service Grade Colt - Question




I'm looking at a Colt 1991 that has Wilson Combat Service Grade engraved under the slide. Can anyone tell me what may have been included in the Service Grade package - The gun is listed at $1200 and I'm trying to determine if it's a fair price.

Do you have a picture? That would be a good start.

Sorry it's still under glass at the dealer. I'm going to go back tomorrow and maybe I can snap a few pictures of it. I thought there might be some standard internal modifications or parts upgrades associated with a "Service Grade Package".

I have a Wilson 1997 build Service Grade Protector Compact I bought used several years ago. It is a Colt Commander slide on an Officers frame. I talked to one of the Wilson CS reps about it and was told it was one of the models Wilson produced before they started making their own slides/frames. He said Wilson bought the slides and frames from Colt and then built the gun. Said they also used Springfield Armory kits as well.

So the Service Grade you are looking out may not be a "package" on a customer's pistol, but a true Wilson.
