    A buddy of mine bought a Wilson CQB and I had the opportunity to shoot it. And I must say WOW is that pistol spot on it every way! It is a very well balanced, smooth, and extremely accurate. I wish I had the cash to afford one. I do have a question about these high dollar 1911's though. What gives them the $2000 + price tag? Is it the materials that are used?
    Sorry if this is a Noob question, but I am very curious.
    Here is my group with the CQB at 25 feet :wavey:

  2. The parts used also a good portion of the gun is hand fitted. Believe me they are worth it in most cases.

  4. It's all about attention to detail. All the parts are hand fitted by a gunsmith and not on some assembly line. The parts that are used in most cases are better quality than others. I am not an expert but I think that about covers it. Oh yeah I thought I would never be able to afford a semi-custom 1911 either until I discovered George @ migunslingers.com and his very generous layaway. Check him out.

    LOL actually I need to practice more. I need to start getting comfortable at 25 yards. It is like relearning how to shoot when I shoot at that distance.
    BTW does anyone know where the best deals on 45 acp are?

    Thanks for all the info though. I just wanted to clarify why the price tag was so heavy. Which after shooting the high end 1911's and doing a little more research, it seems they are well worth it. I just picked up a C3 today which is also a beautiful and accurate weapon. I would like to get a CQB at some point though.
    @thecableguy
    Thank you!
    I will have to check out his builds. Do you have any pictures of your 1911?

    The price is due to the materials used and the fitting and metal work involved.

    1911 smith don't work cheap. ;)

  9. Oh George doesn't make the crack he just sells it. :rofl: He can order just about any semi custom 1911 and gives you 12 months to pay it off. Here is my WC Professional that I am paying off right now.

    George is a bad man. This is what he lured me in with to my addiction.

    Thanks dude. You have hands down the best looking Wilson I have ever seen. I too hear the siren song of the No Name. I am torn between a NN or a matching Kobra with the same build specs as my KC. Good thing is I have time to decide. It will be a year or so before I do it.

    ...and yes, I've already gotten my Kobra build quoted from George. :whistling:

  16. you can email George about one you see on his site or about getting one built to your specs from any of the builders. His prices are really good to so don't go by whats on his website his prices are cheaper than that in most cases.


    Let us know what you ordered.:tongueout:
     
  17. Thank you for the compliment. When the time comes to order my next one I am going to leave it up to a very complex calculation to determine which one I am going to order.






    I am going to flip a coin.:supergrin:

    Handbuilt and fitted parts is what makes the prices higher.
    Here are a couple that I got from George. A Guncrafter Industries Model 1 .50GI and Nighthawk GRP with a few extras. I just ordered a Wilson Combat .38Super from him which I hope to see next year.

  19. How does that GI shoot? What is the recoil like? They both look sweet.

    Thanks. If you were blindfolded and shooting the factory 300gr JFP, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference from shooting factory 230gr .45ACP ball. The factory 275gr JHP is like shooting 230gr .45 or .45+P. Folks I let try it comment on how little recoil there is. GC also uses a shock buffer which may or may not make a difference.
