    I finally received my CQB with both a 9MM and 38Super barrel. Both calibers are proving to be both reliable and quite accurate. I have pretty much consolidated all my handguns to 9mm, however I have kept a TRS for 45acp fodder. Any other 9mm 1911 shooters out there? I'm in the process of working up loads for my Wilson. I have a couple pounds of N320 and a few K MG 124gr FMJ boolits.

    My CQB started out as a 38Super CQB that I won at auction on GunBroker. The pistol was a NIB 2004 build. Upon receiving the CQB and verifying it was indeed new I sent it off to Wilson. I had a 9mm barrel fit, gold bead front sight with plain black boot cut rear sight and an extra extractor fit. I received it back from Wilson in about 4 weeks. I have had it to the range 3 times now and have yet to have a malfunction in either configuration. I did my homework before purchasing a 9mm 1911 as I have heard horror stories regarding getting them to reliably run. Some run great from the factory and some not so great. However every Wilson owner I have spoken to or corresponded with on several forums had nothing but praise.

    I'll take some photo's today but will need to e-mail them to someone to post. I'm about as computer illiterate as can be and my 10 yr old is away for the weekend.

    Nice! I should have ordered my Baer .38 with a 9mm barrel too.

    I know, my other half is back from Europe with all the cameras so I need to get on the ball. When my RRA build comes in I'm sure I'll have a fire lit under me.

    Cool. :cool:

    I know you don't like taking pics, but I'm looking forward to some great shots.

    I was looking at RRA for my first AR build as well. We'll see. :dunno: I've handled quite a few of them.

    Here's mine. Slide and barrel are with Chuck now getting a flush crown job. Should have them back this week along with some Horned Lizards from LD. :supergrin:

    you can't be a 9mm 1911 shooter yet, since you haven't even fired that one yet :tongueout:


    I haven't had an issue with my 9mm 1911's. might build a longslide 9mm 1911.

    Well I shot yours so that should suffice until this weekend sucka.

    Longslide next, or are you still looking at that Ranger2?

    It's not an RRA AR.... it's a 1911. :supergrin: RRA ARs aren't my fav.... kind of the Kimber of ARs IMO.

    Depends on where I am.
    Getting ready for a pistol / carbine class at my club this coming October so I just got a Stag 2L (lefty) a few weeks ago. It's not a high end AR but more than sufficient for 3-Gun shoots.
