    From what I have heard Ed is a few lengths ahead of Les in the "Jerk 400m" race but Les is hanging in :whistling:

    I am just going by what I have heard over multiple years from numerous sources. Who really knows the truth. :dunno:
    I hope I never have to find out.

    I called Wilson once due to an issue with the front sight on my CQB and they were great to deal with. I mailed them just the slide on my dime ($11 with insurance I think) and they fixed it and mailed it back within a week. They included 2 ETM mags to offset my $11, not a bad deal for me :)

    The CQB in the "family" picture is an Elite, what features did you want that were not on the CQB? Just curious.

    I configured the CQB as more of a custom/classic model. It had a naked slide, gold bead front sight, shortened (countersunk) slide stop, magwell, FLGR and BP upgrade. It had a black on black Armor-Tuff finish.

    The CQB Elite that I have on order is going to be a tactical/all business gun and I didn't deviate all that much from the standard configuration. Then again as you know a CQB Elite is pretty loaded as it comes. All I did was add a shortened (countersunk) slide stop, a FLGR and selected the black starburst G10 grips that normally come with the CQB. I also really wanted the new one piece magwell/MSH which Wilson has only recently made available to the CQB Elite. Up until a few months ago it was only available on the Supergrade. I honestly don't see the value in owning a Supergrade. I rather keep the extra $1500 in my pocket or put it towards a second Wilson. I may go for an X-Tac next.

    I have 2 Wilsons, and love the way they feel in hand.

    They seem very slim aside from grips than my Springfield TRP.

    I heard that Baers feel Bulkier, and thicker than the Wilsons, or Browns.

    I was interested in getting an Ultimate Master So What say you?

    Thanks,

    I've had two Baers. They're thicker/bulkier to the point that they won't fit a kydex holster made for a 1911. Were too tight to draw in a Milt Sparks leather holster.

    Exact same here. Milt Sparks holster + Wilson = fine. Milt Sparks + Baer = too tight a fit.

    The Baer does feel slightly "fatter" in the hand than the Wilson.

    Sounds like a great build. It will be built like a tank and shoot like a sports car I bet.

    One of the reasons I really like Wilson as a builder is the variety you can choose from when ordering. Kinda like having the Deluxe Mister Potato Head instead of the regular version as a kid. You know all those extra noes, ears and eyes to choose from :)
     
  8. CONGRATS! Will probably play with 38 Super soon.

    You should, I really love it. I would say I prefer it above .45ACP in a 1911. Not to say .45ACP is not fun to shoot, we all know it is. The .38 Super just has it's own style IMO. I am itching for a 9mm 1911 :)

    Somewhere in the air.
    In my limited experience, you are exactly correct. To Brown's great credit, Ed seldom answers the phone any more.

    As soon as I saw the title "Infamous Cardboard Box Time" I knew exactly what you were talking about.

    I have a Baer TRS that is one heck of a shooter. Finish may not be as durable as my Brown or Wilsons but you get a lot of bang for the buck with the Baers. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. Nice collection by the way!

    I wonder if they would get wise when you started sending it in every other month. :supergrin:
