Wilson Combat CQB

A few weeks ago on GunBroker due to my hesitation I missed the limited time "Buy Now" on a spectacular Supergrade CQB, it was changed to a auction and I made a bid of $3,500 when it was over the WC Supergrade sold for $4,500 and YES that is a hell of a lot of money for a pistol. The Wilson Supergrade package starting price is $5,050 bucks.

So about 20 days ago I ran across this regular stainless CQB in .45acp on GunBroker, it was used, I am the third owner, it left Wilson in December of 2011, it looked new in pics. Came with the Wilson pistol case, 2 magazines, one is WC still new in package and all the paperwork, build sheet and test fire paper. It was way less than the Supergrade. I thought I would be outbid but nope.

I picked it up this morning from my FFL who was holding it for me. The auction ended the other weekend and I was able to get the payment sent before leaving for Aruba 2 weeks ago.
The Wilson build sheet says the pistol has the requested trigger pull of 3 1/2 pounds. I don't own a trigger pull gauge but it feels like closer to 2 1/2, real close to my old Colt Government that I had "work" performed on many moons ago. I'm cool with it.

No, not fired it yet, I'll let you know.

I am excited to see if it lives up to all the Internet Forum hype!
We shall see. Seemed like a pretty fair price, hopefully it will be a great shooter...if not I can always trade it for two Kimber's.

It feels good in hand, it has a couple small holster marks on front of polished slide.

Congratulations on the WC CQB Arland, I know you've been shopping for one for a long time. If it shoots as good as it looks you're going to have a fantastic gun.

Wilson Combat CQB

They’re a great pistol.

I have owned a CQB, Ed Brown Special Forces, EB Kobra Carry, Guncrafter No Name, and Mars Armament THUG.

Yes, these live up to the reputation.

Congratulations

Thanks Chuck, I don't know if I would really call it shopping but I have been "on the lookout" for what I had in my mind that I wanted it to be and this one checks almost all the boxes.

That's handsome. Never met anyone who was unhappy with a WC 1911. Granted, you can always find someone on the internet, but... real people? Not yet.
