    My Wilson XTAC



    This seems so obvious and yet so many fail to do it:


    Actually test fire the gun and inspect it for quality. Thank you to the fine folks at Wilson Combat!!

    Much less than I expected and much less than it is worth.

    IF I told you, you would be jealous.

    Great looking gun! How do you like the feel of that front strap?

    Thanks. I love it.

    I have shot and carried a 1911 for the past 3 years that has a smooth front strap and MSH. I have also had 1911's with 20 lpi, 25 lpi, and 30 lpi checkering and 40 lpi serrations. I also have a 1911 with mini scallops.

    The frequent complaint against 30 lpi and 40 lpi is that they are too delicate and are damaged relatively easily. I personally like 30 lpi checkering.

    The frequent complaint about 20 lpi checkering is that it is too abrassive and will tear up your hands. I had a 1911 with 25 lpi checkering remove a decent amount of skin from my hand during a CSAT course several years ago. Now this course was in TX in the middle of summer and my hand stayed soaked with sweat. Under more normal conditions, I never had a problem with 25 lpi. I have never been a fan of 20 lpi.

    the "X" pattern doesn't seem to fall into either of those catagories. It is very "grippy" without being too abrasive. I don't think anyone could argue that it is delicate.

    I haven't had any high round count range sessions with it, yet. I will soon rectify that.

    250 flawless rounds down range tonight. Very fun time shooting at the 75 yard and 100 yard steel.
    It was very overcast today and that fiber optic sight was really glowing.

    I had a chance to put many more rounds down range since the time you asked this question, including several high round count range sessions and a 3 day Ken Hackathorn training class at the Wilson Combat Ranch. The XTAC frontstrap treatment does exactly what it is supposed to do, which is help lock the gun in without eating up your hands. I can say now, unequivocally, that I love this front strap treatment and this 1911. I have several thousand rounds down range with no stoppages or malfunctions.
