Ever wonder what the owner or CEO of a gun company carries for self-defense? Bill Wilson is the creative force behind Wilson Combat, and the company is now offering a clone of the custom gun he developed for his own use. According to the company, the new Bill Wilson Carry II pistol is an exact copy of the gun that he carries on a regular basis – both in the office and out on the ranch. (This is the original Bill Wilson Carry pistol.)
This gun has a 4″ match grade barrel made of stainless steel. As with many of the company’s other 1911-style pistols, this gun’s barrel has a flush cut, reverse crown. It uses a compact X-Tac grip frame with the Armor Tuff finish in your choice of four colors: black, gray, green and flat dark earth.The aluminum frame has an accessory rail up front, and the magazine well is contoured. Unloaded, the gun is a hair over 29.6 ounces in weight.
The Bill Wilson Carry II pistol is available in .45 ACP and 9mm, though the company is keeping mum on which caliber Bill Wilson chooses to carry for self-defense. The green frame is currently the only model listed as a 9mm gun on the company’s website. The other three calibers are .45 only. It appears that there is no custom work being done on these guns before or after the sale.
Pricing for the .45 ACP models is $3,850. Shooters who prefer light and fast will pay a slight premium for the 9mm model: $3,960.
