So what are the major differences.
The Elite has a serrated top and rear of slide and a magwell.
I think that's it.
The elite also uses all bulletproof parts which is really nice. The upgraded parts over the regular CQB are the magcatch, thumb safety, and grip safety.
I didn't realize that.
Anyone have comparison pics?
One's overpriced and the other one is really overpriced.
They looks the same, other the the magwell and the top and rear slide serrations.
Here's a link to the CQB Elite. I chose the standard CQB as it was more consistent with the stated mission of the pistol. YMMV.
I imagine getting an all black armor-tuff with stainless trigger and barrel. I dont really care for the top and rear slide serrations, but I would like a magwell. I also like their G-10 starburst grips. Id like to get a quote on how much one would be to build it. On their website it only has buildsheets for "customer supplied pistols".
My CQB is all black, but with matching wood grips. The triggers are aluminum.
It wouldn't cost much to add a magwell or "Speed Chute", as Wilson calls them.
The grips wouldn't be much, if any more.
Yup. Add a magwell, silver aluminum trigger and starburst grips and I think I have my next 1911.

This is the build I have on order right now, should be complete around Sept 15th or so. Price delivered was $2840. I first ordered a standard CQB but after adding the G10 grips as a option it was only $185 more to go from the standard to the Elite so I thought that was a worthy investment. Is the Elite worth the extra money who knows but take the extra cost and spread it over the life of the gun and it is not very much IMO.
Sounds nice, Ruggles.
I love the gold bead front sights. My Pistol Dynamics has them and they give a great sight picture.
I'm looking to eventually get a 10mm from Wilson with those exact options. I'm with you on the $185.... if you can afford a Wilson then you can spend a bit more to get what you want.
I also agree with this philosophy.
My 10mm Wilson Tactical Elite......It is heavy, but it is an awesome shooter!
Very nice Dave.
Yeah, those barrels do add some weight.
Yeah, that doesn't help. I'll bet that cone barrel tames the recoil quite nicely. I'm waiting for my railed gun to get back from Robar to be finished. I have a CQB in .40 and it's not very much to get a 10mm fitted to it.... but what's the fun in that?
My Predator II is only a commander, but the barrel does reduce felt recoil.
