Ultralight carry commander compact

Anybody have one? Reviews? I'm really digging the CCO Wilson. Ordered it today (9mm) and it should be here in a couple of days. I hope to make it my edc.

I am expecting delivery of my UC Commander Compact any day now. I can't wait. I have the original Bill Wilson Carry, which is a CCO configuration. It became ammo sensitive and even a trip to the mothership did not correct it. Hence, it is now a range gun.

I have one in 9mm and like it a lot. It's the only gun I've been drilling with for several months now.

The Commander length wasn't a choice since I took the gun on a trade. But, I'm glad it is a full Commander. Lots of holster choices out there (especially used holsters).

Only thing I might change is to add a mag well to get just a little bit more grip into my palm.

Nice holster BTW; I have a Rhodesian for my Hackathorn Special Commander, and the two could swap for carry or range use with one holster.

We got to see and shoot the Sentinel XL just before it was announced at the Berryville Bash a few years ago - it is a great pistol and shoots very well! Congrats.

Our ULC Compact Commander has a few miles on it now but still runs flawlessly. Only two complaints; 1) the AT finish could be tougher and 2) the checkering on the front strap could be extended more to the each side to round out the front profile like a Colt; would be nice if it met the edges of the stocks.

That's a rough looking gun markwell. It might cause a few people to be put on suicide watch.

Grandpa, you might have to talk some people off the ledge.

This is not a rough looking gun; it's one that has travelled a bit and has stories to tell.

I found this one you sent me a couple years ago.

The above pic was taken after a day in the dog towns. It's only dirt mixed with Prairie Dog s#*t and it washes off with beer.

That is one sweet looking pistol! A Wilson Ultralight Carry Compact is on my short list of pistols I'd like to add to the stable. Need to keep putting coins together so that I might be able to grab one someday.

I like the way you think! BTW, beer does a fair job on black powder fouling as well.

My Wilson ulc govt model in 45acp is one of two 1911’s in my rotation. The other is a non wilson cco. The ulc is a fantastic carry gun for which i use many different quality leather holsters both owb and iwb. My ulc is also an extremely accurate gun with the accuracy guarantee

Very nice - I take it that the front sight is a Hackathorn/Ameriglo front sight that has the orange outline around the tritium capsule. They are very good front sights, I have one on my Centurion and like it a lot for night work.

Correct, sir. I have had that sight added to all my WC pistols.

Mine has a custom white ball sight fabricated by Lou Biondo at business end customs. It is fantastic. All my other 1911's have gold bead fronts

Here is an article for I wrote TFB comparing my Wilson Combat ULC 9mm Compact to my Dan Wesson ECP 9mm:

Update......The Wilson Combat ULCC Commander 9mm is PERFECT! I can't believe that 6oz and .25inch makes that much of a difference. It's the exact same grip length as my Sentinel XL 9mm with the new Wilson magwell. The Sentinel XL is a all steel gun and it's 6oz heavier. Both are great guns and carry very well but, after owing both I think I prefer the ULCC Comander. It conceals nicely in a Milt Sparks VMII. Very nice trigger and fit and finish is great. Gun was purchased from 1911 Custom Solutions (great service) and advise. Holster came from Topgun Supply (in stock Milt Sparks) and the service is top shelf with super fast shipping. Thanks for info guys.
