New CQB - new frame changes

I ordered this CQB in February and opted for 25LPI checkering instead of the usual 30LPI.

This frame is a little different than my aluminum CQB, X-Tac, and Compact.

This one has a thinner frontstrap and magwell is beveled into the MSH. I would imagine it slicks up a reload a tiny bit, but if you ever want to change the MSH it will add some work.

The checkering is not quite even from top to bottom or side to side but it’s pretty close. I really like the other frames better as they had just a little more meat on the frontstrap. This one is about like an Ed Brown. Not quite as thin as most Colts.

This pistol is a typical Wilson in that it was slick right out of the box. It ran 100% on ball and 147gr HST, which is it’s primary function in life. No break-in or goofy tricks. Just lube, load, and go to work.

For reference, the front of the steel baseplate is flush with the front of the grip on my other Wilsons and Dan Wesson.
