This is a brag thread....

I picked up my new Wilson Combat Vickers Elite in 45ACP yesterday. My unit has a special finish on the barrel (the standard guns are bare / natural stainless barreled).

Here are the specs from Wilson's site ...

Click here to read it for yourself....

“The Vickers Elite is the natural evolution of the Wilson Combat that I have used as a primary training 1911 for several years. In arriving at the Vickers Elite design, I retained the majority of the features found on that pistol while tweaking a few others. The result is a superb 1911 built for serious use. It combines a classic look with a modern twist, and in case you hadn’t figured it out yet, I am quite pleased with how it turned out." -Larry Vickers

I went straight from the gunshop to the range. The gun shoots better than it looks. I've had other nice 1911s (including 7 Les Baers, 1 Ed Brown, and 5 Wilsons). This is absolutely the finest handgun I've owned.

Thanks.

If I had it to do over again, I would have gone with a night sight on the front. This I can change later. The Wilson I EDC has a front night sight and the same rear as the Vickers.

We'll get right on that. First we gotta fill out all the Government forms of course. Shouldn't take to long I wouldn't think. I mean they shipped a plane full of cash to a certain keffiyeh or shemagh wearing nation.

I sold the Vickers Elite this morning. frown

I just didn't feel like I needed two Wilson Combat 1911s and the CQB I carry daily has a front night sight. In the end, I decided to keep the custom CQB over the standard Vickers based upon the night sight alone.

Alas, I used the money to buy a Les Baer SPR. I sold my two Les Baer about a month ago and instantly regretted it. While I think Wilson is a better "combat" 1911 I know Baers are better range guns. Since I was selling a high end model of Wilson I could afford the top of the line Baer.

Picks to follow when it arrives tomorrow. The dealer is overnighting it to my dealer.

Oh, and the SRP has front and rear night sights.

At some point I'm going to have a rear night sight installed on my CQB.
