    Wanted your opinion. Guy said he put less then 1k rounds down the tube, he has a full size Classic he shoots the most, said this one sat in the safe. Said to be 4-5 years old (not sure). Comes with a Wilson paddle style holster, 2 mags and everything from the factory. He had it listed at $2k. I went and looked at it and offered $1500. Is this a good deal to you all? Also, what year did Wilson start the Armor Tuff coating?

    Anything else you can tell me about this specific pistol?

    Thanks!

    That's a top notch gun.

    $1500 sounds great. :)

    My dad bought a new CQB Elite last year. Then couple months ago bought me a new Wilson Combat Elite Tactical Folder knife and a new CQB t shirt.

    I've fallen in love with WC. Especially since they're made right up the road from me

    Any time you can find a used Wilson Combat for $1,500, it's a great deal.

    Bought LNIB last year. They were produced for a few years in early 2000.

    I hope it works out for you.
    I was going to say to demand a testfire before you paid; no matter how big a name brand.

    Meh, for the price and the fact Wilson's warranty goes with the gun and they're an hour drive away. I'll take my chances.
