    They're former Wilson smiths so the quality will definitely be there. But honestly, the guys that build guns in that upper price range all know each other and have often worked together. They can build each other's guns with the same quality. So what you need to decide is if you agree with their company's general philosophy of gun building. Take Les Baer for example. Their philosophy is to build super tight guns that will "mill themselves out" so to speak. Their slide to frame fit is so tight that a new Baer slide will be very hard to move. But after a few hundred rounds it'll feel like glass. Wilson on the other hand has a looser slide to frame fit, (because they believe it helps in reliability and doesn't effect accuracy) but pays close attention to barrel lockup so it's very tight.
