Wilson Combat X-TAC

On day two I mentioned a new 1911 that would soon be available from Wilson Combat. We were sworn to secrecy but now it is here and unique in three particular ways:

Most noticeable is the cool checkering pattern which will only be available on this pistol that they are calling the X-TAC. This is the most aggressive checking I have seen on a handgun and it really bites your hand.

Second is the strandard equiment fiber optic front sight.

And third is the price of $ 2395.00 making it one of the most affordable Wilson Combat 1911s.

I gotta tell ya, this pistol was a sweet shooter too!

Today I received a few more new product samples from Wilson (Lubrication and a unique sling swivel attachment for an AR) I’ll cover these here in the next few days.
