That's one purdy Slabside.There is no doubt that I love 1911’s but lately I’ve been captivated by Wilson Combats.
I thought there needed to to be a pic thread devoted to Wilson Combat.
So get em out and polish them up,
let’s see em!
I will begin with my latest 38 Super!
I had to sell my favorite CQB to pick this one up but now that it’s home I’m
My latest Wilson Combat came with a bit of Nighthawk DNA.
X-Tac Elite in 38 Super...(Big surprise Huh) in DLC finish by Nighthawk Custom.
It is currently getting fit with two extra barrels. 9mm, and 9x23.
When its done, It will be the nicest, most versatile 1911 I own.

A number of years ago visited Wilson in Berryville. When you entered the shop you could see the gunsmiths assembling the guns; all out in the open behind he service counter. In talking with the man who was waiting on me, the subject of assembly came up and he said that while most of the guns were pretty pricy, one of the most expensive was actually a bargain when compared to the others. It was the Stealth and he said it was literally hand built; very precision. And took more assembly time than any of the other guns they sold at that time. Almost twenty years ago. Of course, bought one and still have it. Even by today's standards with all of the truly custom guns out there, it's a beautiful pistol and a real joy to shoot. Carried it for a long tie until I got the Ultralight Carry, which was lighter and more comfortable to carry. Very accurate and because of the weight minimal recoil for a .45 acp.Recently acquired 2009 Wilson Stealth 45 Black/OD
