Having reviewed that list of specs, I have to say that you have a pistol that will be the envy of 99% of the forum ( I reserve the 1% right to put my T3 against your pistol in a head to head shoot out). That is a very good carry pistol you are about to get your hands on.

Well played sir. Well Played.

JD

It was actually a little less than the T3. I was looking at that one aswell. This is the last gun for awhile. Fugured I'd spend 1200 on a kimber or Spring. Its alot but I think its worth it in the long run.....

You are probably right about that. The only thing I couldn't find was in the barrel configuration it says "Hand Fitted, Heavy Taper" but it doesn't say anywhere whether it's a Match Grade Barrel.

Now, I have shot two Wilson Combats in my lifetime and both were REALLY good shooting pieces, but before you give them final payment, I would check on that barrel, just to make sure.

I am betting it is Match Grade, or the Wilson Combat equivalent, but better safe than sorry.

Damn Joe! What a nice looking piece! I have large bucket under my chin to collect the drool. Let us know how it shoots.
