Ouch, I think I'll let someone else give him the low down on this poor thing.

i Know its old and Ive taken it apart and there are alot of parts that are not original including the sear, sear spring, grips and whatnot. Im not looking to find out if it is worth money, I have not interest in selling it. I just really want to know that if it really was a GI, why the finish on everything like the barrel and bushing? That's All, it was a gift and it shoots like a champ.

Seein that it was given too you and don't plan on selling it is a relief. The gun looks as though someone did a Dremel polish on it. Keep it well oiled, cause the finish is gone.
If it was left alone and didn't have too much wear and tear on it. It would be a real Gem.

No dremel man, I know it looks like that but someone plated it in nickel or something, Its in between all engraving and internal parts. Im bewildered. But It does shoot well and other than figuring out where it came from, thats all that matters to me.

Wilson build. .45acp

The way she is now:

1970's AO 10mm. Uses .45acp mags. She is a thumper.

JPat,

Love your Wilson, when I was shooting IPSC 22+ years ago I would have killed for a Wilson 45. Never like the 38 super and that was what was big back then. If you would like to sell it ...... give me a chance ok?

I've swapped around a lot of 1911s the past couple of years. I'm down to 4 now but they are all keepers. In order: Colt Commander, 1st series Kimber Classic Gold Match, Springer Loaded Longslide, Springer Legend TGO-II...

NGIB,

Would you say that any of those 1911's outperforms the others or is definately better?

The three full-size guns are all target grade shooters. I've shot the Kimber more than the others (as I've had it the longest) but they are all real close in performance. The fit & finish of the Kimber and the TGO is very close, the longslide not to far behind. The 1st series Kimbers are very different than the current production guns, much more attention to detail, fit & finish.

The Colt is a fixed sight carry gun so it serves a different need...
