    Wilson Combat

    I am interested in buying a .45 ACP Wilson Combat gun. Is it really as good as the price? Pretty big difference between Kimber and Wilson. I already own the Ultra CDP II so was looking to ad a Wilson to the collection.

    I personally prefer the Les Baer but you cannot go wrong with a Wilson!!

    yea, well it depends on what exactly you want it for.
    competitive bullseye? maybe not the best
    overall general-purpose 1911? definitely.

    Take a long look at Les Baer before purchasing the Wilson you will never regret it.

    Wilson's are very nice. I've held a few and shot one. I don't know if they're really worth the price. I think Ed Brown is slightly less expensive and at least as good. Les Baer built my gun - Its just right IMO. I don't want anything else - and the price wasn't as much as a car either. JMO

    I like my Wilson.

    In my opinion it was worth the money.

    It has been, by far, my most comfortable shooting shorter 1911.

    I have a Wilson Combat Professional with a 4.1" barrel and a full-size all-steel frame.

    I wanted a smaller 1911 I could carry, but still have the accuracy, capacity and general feel of a full-size.

    I got more than I bargained with in my Wilson.

    The gun is so nicely balanced, cycles beautifully, handles like a charm and I can put hundreds of rounds through it without feeling a thing.

    My dream is a Nighthawk Custom, but I'm DARNED impressed with my Wilson!

    I will not be giving up this gun any time soon.

    Wilson - Les Baer - Ed Brown are all sitting right there at the top. Just find the gun that fits you and your wallet.

    I have shot both Brown and Wilson and have owned a Wilson. The Ed Browns are made with stronger internals and seem to have a higher level of QC. I have had less than a satisfactory experience with Wilson and would not purchase their product again. Brown would be my choice for that price range.

    In the premium .45 category, I lean towards the Ed Brown.

    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
