New Wilson Combat Classic

Hello all

New to the forum. Glad to be a member.

I just received my new Wilson Combat Classic 1911. I ordered it back in August and received my “kit call” early January. I picked up the pistol last week. Since then I have put about 800 rounds through it. Waiting for my 1,000 round tin to deliver!

I had this made to my specifications and I am absolutely in love with it!

Extras added....

Font changed to SG style on slide.
Slide top serrations
Bulletproof one pc magwell
Countersunk slide stop
Flush cut/reverse crown barrel
Checkering rear of slide
Deluxe polished blued frame and slide
Burlwood grips with gold WC medallions
Gold bead front sight


Enjoy the pics!

Dave

Thanks Jim. It was something I wanted for a while and I am glad to have it. And it shoots great!

It’s also sort of an eye opener to shoot this compared to some of the other 1911’s I have. You really notice the difference!

Beautiful gun, and whoever picked out your grips did a superb job! Great set of specs as well.

Thanks guys! I took a lot of cues from guns I saw on this forum. So I kind of copied other peoples build ideas! But I think the grips really make the gun. I have always been fond of a “blued gun” with nice wood grips or a wood stock. And I think the gold medallion really adds a bit a class to it.

Almost what I would have ordered, sometimes I like the naked slide, own both ways. Love the grips.

Thanks! I thought about the naked slide too but I wanted something showing at least the model but also wanted it to have a “minimalistic look”. Not big and blocky looking.

Looks fantastic, you certainly spec’d it out with a lot of thought.

Thanks for the nice comments! I will most definitely be putting this thing through it’s paces and give a range update.

I shoot all my guns and I got this as my regular blaster. I have about 800 through it now and will be putting another few thousand through it in the next month or so!

I sure wish I could get to the range that often!

Welcome to the forum Dave! You may be new to the forum, but you’re obviously no stranger as to what it takes to spec a gorgeous Classic. Nicely done!

Oh believe me that is not the norm! I spent the last year really focusing on my other hobby and mostly collecting stuff that I can’t really shoot that much. So I am making up for lost time!

I hear you! Much of the time my range outings are training classes (I'm either taking or giving) that involve 700 rounds in 2 days, and then 6 to 8 weeks between.
