    It would seem that 9 months is the time that all men must wait for great things... I sent my Colt 1991 to Wilson to modify her to my liking. I could have gone with a base CQB, but I wanted the Colt on the side, and as you can see, she's still stands proud!

    Here's a rundown:
    New bullet proof thumb safety
    New bullet proof grip safety
    New bullet proof commander hammer
    New bullet proof slide stop lever
    New battle sight rear
    New gold dot sight front
    New barrel bushing
    New main spring housing
    New sear
    New trigger
    Tighten slide to frame
    Trigger set to 4#
    Removed Series 80 FPS
    Engraved "Wilson Combat" on dust cover
    Flared ejection port
    Refinished black over gray

    I could probably have bought a Wilson CQB for that price, but it doesn't say "Colt" on the side

    Nicely done, looks like a great all around tune up, and I like that you kept it clean and traditional. In my opinion every GI style 1911 pistol deserves an improved beavertail grip safety, hammer, trigger, and high visibility sights. The fact that it's a colt is just icing on the cake! ;)

    I could look at that barrel bushing all day!
    The only time I've seen Wilson Combat is on some of my 1911 mags.
    Very well done!:)

    I am very curious as to what they charged for all the mods?

    Turned out very nice!

    Very nice sir, you have me thinking about posting my Colt with some pics. If you are interested in parting with your Colt parts that came out of the gun I am always looking for parts for a build.

    so you can send your form 4 papers into the ATF and your pistol into Wilson Combat and get them back at about the same time :)


    Honestly though.. that colt gives me wood. Conga ratz on that fine pistol.
