    Pretty neat. Who here has experience with a Supergrade? Juice worth the squeeze??

    The Super Grade is probably the best semi-custom built today.

    Incredible firearm. I may get yelled at but I love my Nighthawk Heinie Tactical Carry a little more. Even without aligned ball cuts.

    I think the fact that it's Larry Vickers' gun, who is one hell of a 1911 smith, says volumes about the Supergrade.

    I`d bet money that them being able to advertise this as being made for him = HUGE discount for Vickers or perhaps free. :whistling:

    I'd wager free. One of our local shooters gets his for free and he shoots for Wilson, so I can only imagine what Vickers gets. :supergrin:

    Rumor has it that Vickers pulled his deal with Nighthawk because he was unhappy with his name being associated with a pistol that had its fair share of quality issues. I would imagine Wilson just loves the fact that they were able to build this pistol for him. I would guess they were more than happy to comp him a Supergrade.....
