Recently, Wilson Combat introduced a number of new firearms. The latest is the CQB Commander. Not surprisingly the CQB Commander is a 1911-pattern pistol chambered for the .45 ACP. Wilson Combat will also offer the handgun chambered for the 9mm.

The gun uses a frame with a full size grip, but has a shortened slide and barrel. The stainless steel barrel is 4.25″ in length and is said to be match grade. The chamber is fluted. The overall length of the CQB Commander is 7.85″ while its height measures 5.6″. According to the company, this is the first time Wilson Combat has made a pistol in this particular format.

The front sight is a green or red fiber optic rod while the rear sight is the company’s Battlesight. Tritium sights are optional. The grip panels are made of G10 with the same starburst pattern the company uses on some of its other guns.

Wilson Combat uses a trigger with a 3.5 – 3.75 pound pull weight. The company offers an accuracy guarantee of 1.5″ at 25 yards.

The base price for this pistol is $3,600. Various options and upgrades can tack on a few more dollars. Let’s face it – if the base price doesn’t scare you off, the upgrade costs are not likely to either.

Another gun recently announced by the company was the Compact Carry 9mm.

    Wilson's are nice, but way overpriced. I have several "production" 1911's [tweaked a little] just as nice for half the price..

    Wilson's are a status symbol; like Levi's compared to Wrangler's [jeans]
