All to the rear. Backstrap area.

Not sure why they went with the proprietary weights like that.... it would have been nice had just just used the SIG weights instead. But.... I'm sure there is some design reason why. I just don't know what it is.

Disappointing they are all in the backstrap area. Sig already did that. I know the frames aren’t all THAT big in spots, but would have been good to try and spread them out to help both add weight & keep balance. This would have been the perfect middle-ground between Sig X-frames (weight in backstrap) and the Legion (entire frame having tungsten infused).

As far as why three instead of one - I imagine that is to customize the amount of weight to the user’s preference. Perhaps each weigh a certain amount and one can find their ideal balance.

I will still purchase, of course. I like the pseudo-customizability, but I still say it’s a “miss” to not have found a way to spread them out.

Honestly if they made an all metal frame and offered fire control group to frame fit services I would send them mine. This is nice but the more I look at it what does it really offer over the legion in terms of performance?

Depends on what you want/like. If you have smaller cat paw like hands like me, you will like it. If you don't, you might not feel the need. You really have to handle one in person to see the difference.

You wouldn't need extra weight in the front...the slide and barrel already take care of that. If you want more, you can alway do with a Gray Guns 1911 style FLGR and recoil springs set up to get you that additional weight.

Why do people always get on a WILSON COMBAT forum and complain about “why should I buy this?”

Duh! Cause it’s WILSON COMBAT!

Wilson opened this line of discussion when they went into this market IMO.

Nothing wrong with discussing and weighing the pros and cons of any configuration or modifications of it.

Well I usually buy their stuff because it performs best on the clock while being 100% reliable and they offer a configuration for nearly every need outside of open class. Not a brand loyalist, I'm a performance loyalist.

This is an example of a Wilson product I likely will not buy after thinking about it as I already have a 320 X5 that I never use since I have so many guns that are objectively superior in performance and reliability. I may get one since "fanboi" but only if I get a second 320 (very unlikely, gun is just unimpressive) since my X5 has a legion frame and thus is already the "ultimate" version. My main issue with the 320 is when you have optics mounted you can literally watch the dot WANDER from where you originally aimed as you gradually increase trigger pressure since be whole chassis moves and moves the slide along with it. That's hilarious to me, on par with a Glock frame rail mounted laser altering it point of impact from changes in user grip force. Low quality.

I had just placed an order when one of my shooting buddies said these don't work with 10 round magazines required here in NY. I called and WC confirmed they only work with the 17 round magazines. Canceled the order, bummer! Anyone familiar with the p320 design, is it due to the magwell flare, they won't fit? Seems weird to me.

And there we have it! Thanks for that intel. I figured there had to be a reason. Any chance to find out about the weights? When will they be available?

The slide work is now available!
The options are simple. Yet refined and surprisingly affordable!
