Thanks for helping me spend my money!

Just ordered a CQB with:

Wilson Combat Hand Finished Deluxe Blue, Complete Pistol - Matte with Polished Sides of Frame and Slide
Countersunk Slide Stop
Bullet Proof One Piece Magazine Well, Full-Size, Carbon
Front Sight | Gold Bead dome and polish gold bead sight
Flush Cut / Reverse Crown Barrel
Short Trigger Pad
Grip Screws, Torx Head
Grips, Full-Size, French Walnut, Double Diamond, Flat Bottom
Heavy Machine Chamfer on Bottom of Slide

Got a lot of great feedback here from my questions and searches of past threads. I swore I would stop after I just picked up a HK SP5K. But 3 months is a long time to go without buying anything.

This one blew a nice hole in the gun budget. So it may be awhile for another purchase. No really ... I mean it this time! Thank you fellow gun aficionado's (gun nuts seemed to derogatory).

Congrats, sounds like a great build. Only thing I would have added in that list is flatten the slide stop pin to go with the countersunk option.

Your first build sounds great, what and how soon the next one comes will be interesting to find out. My guess, less than 6 months to the order.

Well, considering my track record your probably correct. Got back into shooting about 2 years ago. Since then Iíve gone from 0 to now 15! I was an old school revolver guy, but dang a 1911 is a functional work of art. There are a lot of other features I considered; carry cuts, omit markings, bull barrel to name a few. So itís not a matter of if, but when. Although with almost $6k invested in the last 2 guns. I may have to unload a few to get the next one.

Whatís a kidney go for nowadays?

You are definitely right about it being a functional work of art. They are beautiful to look at and to shoot. The Wilsons are so nice you can experience the art in a whole different way just by closing your eyes and working the slide. It is hard to believe it is metal on metal with no bearings or anything. Congrats. You will love it. We like pictures when you get it.

Since I bought my first Wilson a few years ago all of my other 1911ís, except for two, have been sold to help finance other Wilsonís. And without one second of regret.

Nice selections. I just couldn't spend that kind of dough so cut my order way shorter. Went with slide blue only but regret not doing whole pistol in deluxe blue. It'll be interesting to see whose gets delivered first.

The in house deluxe blue with polished flats is worth every penny.
