So my gun arrived today

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by EricandSuebee, May 31, 2012.

  1. So my gun arrived today, was supposed to be the XSE model but they sent me the Wiley Clapp model instead. So did I get a awesome deal at $970 or what?

    Is it the commander or full size?

    Either way you got a smoking bargain in my opinion. The Wiley Clapp models have no passive firing pin safety, nice checkering and some impressive slim line grips.

    You definitely did well.

    I own the commander version and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far.

    Lots of luck with yours.
  4. I will have pics up tomorrow and hopefully a range report on Saturday!

    Thats cool! They didn't want you to pay the difference? No kidding, I couldn't have sold that gun for that and not taken a loss. Was it the dealer or the supplier that botched? Is that really a botch if it's an upgrade? Just sayin...... I love the Clapp gun, personally. Everything except it's carrying another man's name and that there's not one in my safe.
  8. Not sure what happend, it was bought off gunbroker it arrived today opened up the case and was like hmmm this is strange, did a google search while I was there at the gun shop and was surprised to see the model #'s coming up was for a Wiley Clapp model. I actually like this much better then the XSE. Only thing I can think of was that the XSE sold in their gun shop and they felt bad so they "upgraded" me to this model.

    Yes, that's an awesome deal. Switch out the butt ugly grips for a good old fashion double diamond grips and you're ready to rock.

    The Wiley Clapp model is a Talo Inc. special run. It's a Series70 Lightweight Commander with special wooden grip, small thumb lever.
