    Thanks! My first 1911 was an STI Trojan that I thought was really nice, and it was. But the step up to a Wilson is a leap, there is no comparison.

    Yeah, I have both and the CQB is certainly a better 1911 than the Trojan.

    Of course, its over twice the price.

    I saw that on 1911Forum. That is one good looking gun. Very original.

    I love the combination of a crowned barrel and a smooth plug.

    I have a Morris Custom on order with a similar setup. It looks very clean, in my opinion.

    Oh man, that's going to be a sweet piece.

    The flat plug is a new Wilson "bullet-proof" item, machined from a solid piece of steel.

    Yep.

    Mark Morris also manufacturers his own flat plugs.

    Mine will be hardchromed without the engraving though. I don't care for engraved handguns.

    That is the best looking Wilson I have ever seen. It's perfect as far as i'm concerned. Very clean and sleek. LOVE IT!!!!
