    I just looked through Wilson's website, and thiswas the pistol that spoke to me the loudest. It looks amazing, and has all the features I'd like to get, with none I don't. This is definitely going to be what I get when I'm ready for a custom 1911. Sounds like I won't be disappointed one bit.

    Thanks Longtooth.

    I have two 1911's right now. One is a Springfield 1911 I inherited from my grandfather, it's a fullsize with some modifications. The other is a Springfield Champion Lightweight Loaded. I like the Champion but it's a little too light for many 230gr rounds, and I have to be careful with what mags I use, or it will chew up the aluminum.

    I think my next purchase will be a Springfield Mil-spec. Just want a pretty basic, functioning 1911. After that I'm leaning toward that Wilson CQB.

    Other pistols I own are:

    - Inherited Ruger Blackhawk .357
    - Inherited Ruger MkII .22
    - Ruger SP101 with Crimson Trace
    - Bulgarian Makarov
    - Sig P6
    - Springfield XD9 Service. Want to get night sights for this.
    - Beretta 21A .22LR

    Wilson CQB

    I love my CQB. Every detail is outstanding. Wilson pistols feel like sex in your hand. It's a Rolex.

    The CQB is ABSOLUTELY RELIABLE right out of the case. Wilson instructions ask you to hit it hard for 200 rounds right out of the box. as is and it runs like a sewing machine.

    Often, when I step out to practice, my initial shot(s) are casual draw and fires and the CQB seeks the 10 or the center mass of the target. Always astounds me. Wilson pistols shoot "better" than it is possible for a hand holding shooter to shoot.

    As a platform for building a custom gun they are the most cost effective way to start. Why build evrything from ground up when the CQB (or other wilson pistols) are "perfect" to start? It is cheaper to build from the CQB platform than to to build from box stock parts and you start with a "perfect" / Absolutely reliable gun and build from there.

    Wilson customer service is OUTSTANDING. Personable, fast response and the extra mile - even to downline owners.

    Most high end guns are babied and $1500 for a CQB is a steal. I would beg, borrow or steal to get the money that day.

    I've had a CQB for 2 or 3 years. Like a lot of other gun owners, I have other manufacturers' 1911s also: Ed Brown, Kimber, Para-Ordnance. I like them all, but the CQB is the best of the lot. The most rounds ever fired in one session was about 400, and I have about 2,000 rounds through the weapon since I bought it new. I've fired all factory loads, but ball as well as HP. I have never had a malfunction of any kind. No matter how radical the profile of a HP round, it always cycles. As much as I like the other 1911s I own, it's always the CQB (w/Crimson Trace laser grips) that's on my night table every evening. For me, the CQB is perfection.

    I love the CQB!

    I've had a CQB for a while now...fantastic 1911. My other 1911's languish in the safe since I picked up the Wilson. Here is my CQB next to my Warrior:

    I bought a CQB about three years ago and have put probably 2,000 rounds through it. I have had exactly 1 jam in all those rounds and I believe it was an out-of-spec bullet. It is the most reliable and accurate handgun of any caliber I've ever owned.

    My CQB Elite will shoot with any pistol out there. I have put over 2000 rounds of AE ball ammo, hornady xtp jhp, CCI Blazer and some Cabellas russian reloads, I have not had one missfire, ftf. It has gone BANG every time I pulled the trigger!!

    What does the Elite have over the regular CQB?

    I've owned other 1911's, but once I shot my CQB, I sold the rest. Smooth, reliable and accurate. Besides that, you can't beat WC's warranty. If something goes wrong, they will fix it! Their customer service is second-to-none in the industry.

    I have 2,894 rounds through my CQB Elite. Put in a Wilson flat wire spring at 2,000 rounds. Not a single mal-function yet.
