Bwc nib 45 acp

Yup, I finally got my Bill Wilson Carry 45 ACP. Pictures tomorrow. I have only had bench time testing, cleaning, and lubing so far.

Congrats! Is yours the current version with a rail, x-tac treatment or his earlier version?
Regardless, top tier carry piece in my favorite 1911 caliber

Very nice, and I think you will be happy with how the X pattern treats your clothes during carry. Let us know how your range sessions go, and congrats!

I've not yet figured out why WC (or anyone else for that matter) puts a rail on a "carry" pistol. I don't know of anyone who carries with e light or a laser on their gun.

Bueller??? Bueller????

Other than that....nice gun.

re: rail; seems like in a couple of videos I've seen with Bill, he mentioned putting a light on his carry gun for nightstand duty.

It's just nice to have and if I'm not somewhere I really need to conceal my guns have lights in them if they have rails

As far as carry - off-duty police officers and private security guards during low-light shifts. As mentioned by J Scott above, Bill can use his carry gun during the daytime without the light, but for night work (like dispatching wounded hogs during night hunts) the light is attached and his carry gun is what he practices the most with. Use your imagination to think of other possible applications - I'm sure there are some.

My EDC X9 is my only railed gun and when carried it does not have a light on it. During the time it spends as a bedroom gun it has a TLR-8 on it. I do have a holster that accommodates the TLR-8 but have not really used it.

There are many that do prefer to carry a gun with an attached light at all times.

Very slick! I really like those Black Cherry G10 grips on there; my X9 has that color grips as well and looks very nice with them. Congrats again!

Something tells me WC may be taking a few more orders for this model after seeing your photos. Well done, sir!

Thank you for the comments. It feels very tight and good in my hands like my current Dan Wesson Guardian. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet as I am caring for my wife who had foot surgery. I am hoping that I will get out Saturday.

WC disease is a serious thing. I am already thinking about getting a matching 9mm.

I hope the wife recovers fully and quickly from the surgery. The range trip in this case can wait if needed. It is nice to see devoted husbands, and I suspect many on this forum are that way. Take care of the wife first, then there will be time for the range trip(s).

Sixty rounds today of factory then to my reloads. I think I shot about another 30-40 reloads. This gun is very accurate. You do need to hang onto this one in 45 but if I keep focused on a smooth trigger pull it hits stuff very well. Sorry I don't have target pics that range was very crowded today and I didn't want to wait for the next ceasefire. I am not the most stable shooter but I was able to hold on for a 1 1/2" group full mag at 10 yards. It hits just a bit low at 10 yards but almost exactly on at 25 yards with factory. I was chasing a small stick around the berm at 25 yards. My reloads shot just fine except one that jammed. I had missed a reload with a messed up brass on the side.

So, as soon as I can get my holster checked out this one will be my primary carry gun.

Hey Wilson Combat. Why do you sell me a superbly hand designed and created gun and then include outdated service and operations manuals? The manuals you included with my new Bill Wilson Carry II have little relevance to this find new pistol. Also, my dog tags for the pistol are missing. Bummer.

WTH?
