I like the beavertail grip and the 1911 style single stage trigger. Also like the fiber optics. I am anxious to put fiber optics on one of my 1911's I keep hearing good things about the fiber sights. I think you can change the tubes easily and at a reasonable cost. Load that puppy up with 15 rounds of 150 grain federal HST 16 if you want max, Might just do the job in most cases!

That was a great review, I've been reading a lot of good things about the gun in various magazines. I really like it and would buy one in a heart beat if it came in .45.

Gorgeous WC for sure, but at $3K it may be a little out of my price range......

Couldn't I defer the price of the Wilson because of the money I would save on 9 mm apposed to .45 acp?

Probably a fine pistol, of course it should be for the price.

I guess I'll be the spoiler/odd man out. I don't love the looks of it the way most of you do. It looks heavy to me, don't think that's needed in a 9mm.

I would be more likely to be interested if it was .45acp.
