    Thumbs up Wilson Combat Lover Here!!!!

    I have to say I always loved my Springfields, then along came the Para Ordnance, after that I tried a Colt 1991, then a Kimber. The all came and went but then I made the mistake of shooting a friend's Wilson Protector. I have to say I was amazed a gun could shoot so smoothly and be so accurate. I field stripped the gun, with his permission of course, and really did an inspection of the parts and finishes. A week later I got one of my own.
    It started with a black on black CQB, then the same gun but in a compact form. I have since purchased my favorite of them all....a stainless Professional. This gun has to be the finest shooting gun I have ever owned. It is my primary carry weapon 99.9% of the time. I have 100% confidence that, if needed, it will be there to serve me in what ever capacity I use it for and will easily come back for more without even breathing hard.
    I am closing in on 4000 rounds and I have to say that dependability is uncanningly boring. It just won't quit shooting....that is unless I forget to load the mag........here is my pride and joy!!

    First of all, as I'm new entry in the Forum, I wish to say hello to all the Members.
    I have a Kimber Custom II, that I carry for personal defence; it's a great gun and it shoots very well. IMHO, I think that a 1911, carried "cocked and locked" is one of the best solution for personal protection.

    Regards.

    I have been known to dabble in 1911 pistols on occasion and here is my current herd. I own 3 Colts (Officer, LTW Commander, and National Match), 2 Norinco 1911A1s, 2 Para-Ordnance P12 LDA and P14, 2 Springfield, and 1 Sistema Colt 1927. I also own a Ballester-Molina that is very similar to a 1911. Regards, Richard

    Hey, I once had the fullsize version...

    FYI - since that is an alloy frame - you DO NOT want to shoot the gun w/ the mags it came with - you want mags w/ a polymer follower. Otherwise, over time, you will get the dreaded "gouge." When the 2nd to last and last rounds come up thru the mag, the metal point on the follower will beat against the inside of the frame. Over time, it can make a bigger and bigger gouge.

    I was pissed because my Kimber tac would ONLY work w/ the stock mags. And, after just 200 rounds, I started to see the very begging of the process.

    If Wilson mags don't work for U - try the Tripp Research rebuilt kits - U just take the follower and spring out of your fimber mags, and replace them with his rebuild kits. I had them before for another gun - they work good. - www.trippresearch.com

    Smile Beware of Mags.

    If you got a gun made with alloy's don't use any Chip McCormick Mags in it or it will damage it for sure. I just found out the hard way. My damage was very minor but I saw another's that almost ruined his gun. Your stock Mags should be OK if the bottom follower and top are welded together with a round nose. My stock Act clips work fine and no damage to the gun. Wilson plastic nose work fine also. I am with .45 on the protection deal. Here's my 45's.
