Don't worry. The Dremel isn't being utilized much. The sanding bit that's on it is worn down to the point it removes very little material.

I have mostly used wooden dowels with 220-600 grit sand...

I have a Wilson Combat that I spent upwards of $3700 on and it is PERFECT, but it's interesting to see how each manufacturer has their own build "philosophy" for 1911s.

Wilson Combat Holiday Sale?

Just wondering if anyone knows when their holiday sale starts?

I was hoping to get in on some mags and maybe a few bulletproof parts for another gun I have.

What's with the trijicon stamp on the slide? Not sure I love that, but it's a minor gripe. Do they laser that in after the AT? That seems.. unnecessary.

Wilson Combat 1911 vs Beretta Armor Tuff

The safety. I still, to this day, have not handled another semi-custom 1911 with a safety that's as perfect feeling as my Wilson CQB.

It's the perfect click.

WCR, I'd like to make a request.

Does WC "obviously" have a deal with VZ? I thought someone else did their G10 grips.

ETA I think Larry Davidson machines their grips.
