    Are the guns like the Kimber Warrior, TLE II w/ rail, Wilson CQB LR and others of the same design legal for IDPA use, ( without the light of course)?

    Personally I find it hard to think something Wilson Combat makes that wouldn't be legal for it.

    As long as it fits in the "box" and you have a proper holster, I don't see why it would be illegal.

    "having a rail" doesn't make a gun illegal in IDPA, if that's your question ?

    Most Glocks do, and they're all legal (they're usually shot in SSP, not the CDP 1911's are).

    But that wouldn't make it any different.

    There was some talk about extended dust covers and stuff on threads that Google pulled up. Most of it was 4 to 5 years old information now. Figured it would be a good idea to make sure since this one will be my general all around go to gun.

    As long as it is a short rail and does not comprise the fiendish "full length dustcover" and as long as the whole gun with magazine makes the maximum weight limit, now 42 ounces for CDP/.45ACP, it is OK for IDPA

    It also has to have a bushing. Stupid.

    The CDP weight limit is now 42 ounces with a 0.2+ allowance.

    My Nighthawk Talon/Recon frame now makes weight. But I had to:

    - Change grips to Carbon Creations (remove Alumigrips)
    - Replace FLGR with GI guide rod assembly
    - Use a Les Baer mag to weight with :rofl:

    Exactly 42.2 oz.

    Lot of hoops just to shoot your rail gun.

    If you REALLY want a rail gun, get the Wilson Combat LW rail gun they have but you will have to get it with a standard bushing which they can do.

    The way I am getting mine built it will have a bushing barrel. Like a normal CQB top and a rail frame.

    I cannot see what the advantage of having a bushingless gun would be and why they would prohibit it

    Because some people say the bull barrel in a bushingless 1911 mutant gives less recoil.
    Because in 1996, a bull barrel was an expensive custom modification and they wanted to avoid an equipment race.

    Don't rails have to be a permanent part of the gun as well?
