Manufacturer’s Description

The Wilson Combat Classic is chambered in .45 ACP and .38 Super and features the timeless look and function of a traditional full house 1911 pistol. Over the years, one of the most popular improvements to 1911 pistols has been improving the sights, typically that has meant incorporating an adjustable sight on the rear. We use our own Wilson Lo-Mount Adjustable Rear Sight. If you have ever encountered broken adjustable rear sights, try this one and you will understand why it’s so popular. If you ever shoot in low-light situations, we can add tritium inserts.

We can hand-craft the Classic in your choice of Armor-Tuff finish colors. In keeping with time-honored tradition for classic 1911s, our standard model has a stainless steel frame with a black Armor-Tuff slide, but, as in all our pistols, color choices are up to you.

The Classic pistol is hand-fit with a 5” match grade barrel with bushing and a full-length guide rod. Other standard features include Wilson Combat legendary Bullet-Proof parts, a skeletonized ultra-light hammer, an ultra-light trigger with a crisp pull adjusted to between 3 ¼ and 3 ¾ pound pull, 30 lpi checkering on the front strap and flat mainspring housing, and our High-Ride Beavertail grip safety.

Like all Wilson Combat firearms, we custom build the Classic to meet your exact specifications. Every part is hand-fit for reliability, performance and accuracy.

Other features include:

  • All carbon-steel construction;
  • a single-side tactical thumb safety;

  • a padded pistol rug (soft case) with the Wilson Combat logo and an outside flap-covered storage for seven additional magazines on one side and two 6.5”x6.5”x1.5”, zippered, padded pockets on the other side.
