Glock vs. 1911 (Wilson Combat) – A Superbowl Commercial

Bat Mann – the Gunwriter Assistant – likes his custom Wilson Combat 1911 so much that he wanted to make a Superbowl commercial for Wilson Combat. (Bill Wilson put this pistol together for Bat because he recognized a need for a 1911 that could be shot and operated by folks with smaller hands.)

A feature article on this pistol and how it has been adapted for smaller hands and a new shooter will soon appear in Shooting Illustrated magazine. The question is, is Bat a better actor or a better shooter?

    Bat was a bit close to that steel, unless that’s just how it appeared. I realize match rules don’t apply, but minimum distance for steel targets with handguns is 23 feet for USPSA and 30 feet for IDPA. Be safe!

    Love that Wilson!

    Good to hear–I hadn’t considered that he’d be using frangible.

      It is base on the Ultra Light Carry which as a MSRP of $ 3650.00. We have it on extended loan and might unload a gun or two so we can keep it. Bat can shoot it very well.
