Wilson Combat has been making extremely high quality firearms since 1977. Due to there precise nature and very high quality you can expect these 1911's to outperform the vast majority of what else is out there. Unlike most 9mm handguns, this firearm has a very smooth recoil impulse and very light recoil spring. These features put together make this the perfect gun to get new shooters on. Wilson has now started milling slides for red dot sights. Being able to hard focus on the target and not the front sight makes red dot shooting the way of the future. The grips and checking allow for complete control of the gun while under recoil. The CQB Elite is a really amazing single stack pistol!
