Wilson Combat KZ 45

Hi everyone,
I am in the market for a discontinued pistol made by Wilson Combat, model KZ 45.
I noticed in my search that all have serrations on the rear of the slide but some models have serrations near the front end of the slide.
I know that this model came in 4" and 5 " barrel versions so do the front slide serrations distinguish the 5" barrel model or was it just a factory custom addition that could be applied to either version? I have contacted WC but of course they are closed today. Any KZ 45 owners on here know the answer?
Kevin

I don't have any proof of what I'm going to say...just a guess. First I don't know if this applies to the WC KZ 45.
I'm under the impression most all 5" barrel Wilson's have front slide serrations as standard. Wilson's are custom so if you pay your money you can order it "your way!" For the most part it has to be ordered (Without) front serrations.
I also think for the most part 4" Wilson's do not have front serrations.

Wilson Combat CQB Compact's Brown grips .45acp, Black grips 9mm.
4" barrels, no front serrations.

If members here don't have an answer, I'm sure they will help over on 1911Addicts, they have a Wilson Rep as a member. I forget his screen name.

Looks like they also offered a 4" "Compact" model that didn't have front serrations. See link below:

EDIT: Do the search I saw 7 auctions for KZ 45's on GunBroker just now. Make sure your piggy bank is ready to die for the cause!

I did but the ones without serrations are not labeled as 4 or 5. Also there is one without marked 5" unless maybe the poster is wrong???

I am expecting an answer from WC, maybe tomorrow. Thanks for your help... By the way whats your name ,lol
