Our Assessment: The 1911 and 1911-A1 pistols served the military of the United States from 1911 to 1985, through two World Wars and the Korean and Vietnam wars. They gained a reputation as a reliable handgun with plenty of stopping power, and are held in high regard by those who have used them. The design was the end-result of a series of developments by famous gun designer John Browning, starting with the Model 1900. The advances made by Browning were revolutionary at the time, and were so successful that they are considered commonplace today. Browning not only developed first a pivoting and then a tilting barrel to allow for a locked system, he developed the concept of “the slide”, which is now synonymous with semi-automatic handguns.

As with any hobby, with the 1911 you can go as far as your pocketbook will take you. Just about every brand has a 1911 on offer and they range from entry-level to high-end, this example is one of the latter. Wilson Combat is among a small group of the best manufacturers of custom and semi-custom 1911s in the world including Nighthawk Custom, Ed Brown and Les Baer. This pistol is an excellent example of why they have earned this reputation. The fit and finish are next level and Wilson Combat has combined the most desired upgrades including front and back strap checkering, extended indexing beavertail grip safety, extended beveled magazine well, extended ambidextrous thumb safety, night sights and skeletonized hammer and trigger with their legendary craftsmanship quality. Many of the hard edges are beveled, the top of the slide is serrated, and the rear of the slide is checkered because details matter. This one has non-standard optional upgrade work by Wilson including the laser engraved markings, bullet proof magazine well, countersunk slide stop, 30 LPI slide top serrations, 40 LPI checkering on the rear of the slide, bullet proof safety, and Wilson/Ameriglo sights. Custom markings have also been added, the standard right side slide markings are “COMMANDER SPECIAL” but this one has been upgraded to “SUPERGRADE COMMANDER”. All of the features combine for a pistol that is not only damn good looking but should shoot damn well too! This pistol looks nearly brand new and is in Excellent condition. If you’ve been looking to get a premium-quality 1911, you can’t do much better than this. Not only is this pistol absolutely gorgeous, but the numerous tactical upgrades make it ideal for home defense, daily carry or just a fun day at the range. Please see our photos and good luck!

Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
