Wilson Combat Ultralight Carry Commander

    Ultralight Carry Commander

    Wilson Combat is known for making high end 1911 pistols and other firearms. The latest from the company is the new Ultralight Carry Commander.

    Called the Ultralight because of its aluminum frame, the gun weighs in at less than 29 ounces unloaded which isn’t bad at all – especially for a 1911 style handgun. These guns come with a 4.25″ match barrel with a flush cut, reverse crown.

    Two calibers are offered: .45 ACP and 9mm. Features on these guns include:

    • rounded butt
    • checkered front strap, slide top serrations and serrations on the rear of the slide
    • Bullet Proof grip safety, thumb safety and magazine release button
    • front fiber optic sight, Battlesight rear
    • 3.5 – 4.5 pound trigger pull
    • G10 starburst grips with pewter Wilson Combat medallions
    • countersunk slide stop
    • an accuracy guarantee of 1.5″ at 25 yards with good ammo

    Pricing on these pistols is not for the faint of heart, however. The .45 ACP version has a base price of $3,825 while the 9mm starts at $3,935. Getting matching leather will not be inexpensive either unless you plan on running a $4k gun in something from Uncle Mikes or a random kitchen Kydex holster maker. Mitch Rosen would seem to be a better fit. Of course, Wilson Combat also offers its own leather carry rigs on the site.
