What have I done????:hairpull:

I recently sold off several of my Series I Kimbers and then this morning, I talked to Matt at Wilson..... the rest is history.

Placed a order for a CQB Elite, black over grey with adjustable combat pyramid white outline night sights. Also requested no front cocking serrations and a naked slide. Caliber 10MM

It should go well with my 2 tone classic and my stealth.

Now the wait.....

Getting rid of the Kimbers was a choice that I made. All the Kimber S/I's that I had worked exceptionally well.

the choice was based on going to fewer, higher quality guns, and the Wilson's are about the highest quality guns on the market in my opinion.

My thoughts exactly... All my Series I kimbers were very good guns, not a problem in the bunch. My Gold match is still out on gunbroker, and is the last one I have.

I agree tyhat the Wilsons are on another level. The one I ordered will be my third. very happy with my two that I currenly have, and am getting anxious for the third.

Cqb

I love my CQB, all black with adjustable night sights, but I have to give my Springfield TRP its due. The TRP is close, very close, to the CQB in all areas. The only knock I give the TRP is the 20LPI, which is a little course. I was going to sell the TRP when I got the CQB, I even listed it on Gunbroker.com once, but I couldn't see it through. Wilson Combat is very good, and very pricey, and will make you a better shooter. It's the finger on the trigger that really matters:wavey:.

Well, it arrived this week, and I couldn't be happier with it. I have not had time to shoot it yet, but I am sure it will function like my other two Wilsons. :dancingbananna:

I have Kimbers, NightHawks, Baers, Sigs, and Wilsons and think I may order another
Wilson, a 4.5 inch model for 3100 or so, can;t remember its name but its supposed to be
a notch above the CQB...this to go along with my Wilson Sentinel round butt...oh, and it will be BobTailed...as will my Sig Platinum Carry...like my Talon 2...love all my guns...equally...although some are a class above or below the others...I would stake my life on any of them...they are all combat accurate....

Congrats on the new gun.

As much as I love my old Series one "MIMbers" they are not even in the same class as a Wilson.

It's funny how the old Kimbers are starting to become worth something. Maybe I will sell the Gold Match Stainless and upgrade but the Custom Target is a keeper. :cool:
