    Guys,

    Any idea on the price of a second hand slightly used Wilson Combat .45 complete with papers less than 300 rounds fired. My friend is trying to sell me his at 46T w/out transfer cost. Thanks to the group!:)

    Linawin ko lang dre ha, dito ba yan sa 'Pinas? Na Wilson Combat...na dito sa pinas?

    How old is that? If you can get the serial no., you can try emailing WC and confirm if it came out of their production line. From the net, ang wilson combat yata over $2K ang presyo. So kung orig yan, aba eh, very good price. ;)

    Good luck.

    Any ideas on how to spot a fake other than the usual query on the manufacturers serial numbers? Thanks.

    I'd imagine it to be fit tight like a vault but with a very smooth and snag-free slide action. All corners and lines will be properly dressed. Any metal to metal junction will be properly blended and smooth. Very minimal toolmarks, if any, in and out.

    But I'm basing these from the pics I've seen of WC's. FWIW, it's too good to be true.;)

    Look at the model also. Wilson makes some less expensive models and if it's used it will be that much lower. Make sure the serials match when you check. That is, glock has the serial # stamped on the barrel, slide, and receiver. I don't know if wilson does the same but it will show you if any major parts have been swapped out. Good luck

    I,m not an expert but that Wilson-Combat 1911 pistol is very cheap.If I am not mistaken,the cheapest Wilson-Combat(Brand New)1911 pistol you can find in the U.S.A. would cost you $1,500.00.Just make sure that the pistol is authentic including the parts.Baka naman Wilson Basketball yan?Anyway,Good Luck and hoping that it's the real thing for your sake.

    I agree with the others. Wilson Combats are quite "rare" in the Philippines since they don't have any official distributors. Some can use Norinco and engrave the Wilson Combat markings. There is not much difference if the gunsmith who imitates is very good (siince some Wilson pistols are actually imported from Norinco). Wislon also uses some proprietary finish. If the gun you are buying is in chrome or blue, do more research (andali ng gayahin nyan dito e).

    wilsons are overprice guns anyways, between a Wilson and and STI trojan , i'd pick a STI trojan anytime of the day. ( STI supports our sport tremendously and Wilson - well, need I say more).
