    OK so today I get this email from George at MI Gunslingers:

    "Hi Brandon,

    I received your CQB Elite today. Looks sweet!

    Gunslingers order# XXXXXX Wilson order# XXXXXX

    Wilson CQB Elite
    .45ACP
    Armor-Tuff Black Slide Over Grey Frame
    Tactical Boot Rear Sight
    Gold Bead Front Sight
    Checker Underneath Trigger Guard
    Bullet Proof Package w/ Tactical Safety
    Black G10 Starburst Pattern Grips
    Extreme Dehorn for carry
    No front cocking serrations

    Total delivered price: $2840.00

    Balance Due: $ 300.00
    "


    As you can see I still owe $300 on the gun. I email George back and tell him I will send the $300 out today via money order and ask him if he can send a pic for me to drool over. This is the only info exchanged between us and then I receive this email from George about 1 hour latter:

    "Brandon,

    I would have loved to send you a few pics but I already packaged up and shipped the gun to you. It will arrive on Friday by 3:00pm. The USPS Express Mail tracking number is XXXXXXXXXXXX. I wanted to make sure you had your new toy for the weekend. I will let you know when your final check arrives.

    Have fun!

    George"


    The man sent me the gun without receiving the last payment of $300 just so I could have it before the weekend :supergrin: He had my FFL on file from my last Wilson he sent me so he sent this one as a nice little surprise for me. Now that is customer service indeed :)

    Just wanted to share a story of excellent customer service as we all too often only hear the bad on internet forums. Well that and I wanted to rub it in that I will be shooting a new Wilson this weekend :tongueout:


    Lots of great 1911s and lots of great dealers, I know there are many great dealers outside of George on this very forum as well. Ain't America great.

    It's Bac's fault, he is a bad influence :)

    On a serious note.....now that I have that paid out it is time for a new 1911. Pretty much narrowed it down to:

    1. Wilson Classic
    2. Nighthawk Dominator

    Now lets say each of these are laying on a table and you can pick one up and leave with it, which one do you choose all things being equal? I am leaning towards the Nighthawk just because I have a Brown and now two Wilsons so I want to mix it up a little. I am also drawn to the Wilson due to the fact I can get it in .38 Super :) Ahhhh what to do what to do......

    Can you order the Nighthawk without the big bird on the slide? :whistling:

    It does sound like you could stand to diversify a bit more. :cool:

    Sounds very fitting for a Wilson order as Wilson Combat is the same way to deal with. They even answer the phone like you are old friends, and are more than happy to help people.

    It's nice to hear this kind of thing in the midst of the crap Gun Shop FKA's throw around.

    Thanks for letting us know about a great company, and when you have her, we'd all appreciate pics to drool over! Congrats!

    I dealt with George for my Custom Operator - he is very friendly and will answer endless questions. I asked him a lot of stuff before I had decided what to order.

    Also, I had some pretty severe health problems earlier this year. I have since recovered, but in the midst of all that, I asked to cancel my order for my 2nd Custom Springfield. He got me my 30% deposit back from Springfield.

    GREAT guy to deal with!

    Glad to hear you are doing better, we shared some time on the FN forums talking PS90 a couple of years ago.:) Yeah George is a great guy no doubt. This is my third 1911 from him and he has been very accommodating each time.

    Pics will be posted this weekend for sure :)

    One more thumbs up for George and Gunslingers - I bought my last Brown from him and he's a real gentleman.
