No Name GI 38 Super ? Or Wilson

I have been looking for a GI 38 Super NN full size but the cheapest used I can find is $2700.00. Or I can buy a fully tricked out Wilson for the same price in 38 Super.
Good price? Seems a little high.

The base model NN starts @$2,800 and can run up to $4,900 with added options.

Finding a "used" 38 Super might be difficult. I took a quick look over the interweb and didn't find any.

$2,700 isn't a bad price based on limited availability. It might actually be a good priced if it has added options.

If the one you found fits what you are looking for, grab it.

Yeah, it is a toss up to be honest, I also found a really nice Wilson fully loaded for the same price. The GI does have a non blended mag well but the Wilson has everything.

I have a full size GI 45acp that has been nothing but perfect and the melonite finish is a plus.

The Wilson for sale has the blue finish that looks perfect and I know will wear with time but I have no issue with the wear, so I'm trying to figure out which one to buy.

A Guncrafter is a hand built pistol, hand fitted parts. Wilson,.....not quite as much.

You also find 10x as many Wilson’s for sale in the second hand market. Hence another reason for the lower cost. I had a choice of ordering a New gun, lower price Wilson or a few Hundred more GI, went GI as the above post states, more hand fitting/attention to detail.

Thats about going price or decent, imho. My GI 38 super is a NN CCO.
Mine just happened and was my intro into GI, and 38 super, after 4 Wilsons. Iíve gotten 3 more GIs since. Love them all!! Im a blue gun guy, but now also love GIs melonite. My 38 super and one of my Wilsonís.
