Apparently they restarted them since then. I saw a bobtail fs on mginslingers website a few months back. It is now in his sold section but here is the test target showing 8/30/18.
Perhaps they brought them back at some point, but they were definitely discontinued starting in 2014.Wilson gave up on competing with Brown! :biglaugh: But seriously I think it has been an option all along.

The other reality is that the bobtail simply is not very popular and over the last few years the round butt has eclipsed it 20-1 as a custom option. There are certain "gungineering" reasons why we prefer the round butt also but the main reason is that outside the forums it was never wildly popular.
WCR was most likely stating what was fact at that time. Wilson is about making money as long as it can be done without hurting their reputation for high quality offerings from what I can tell.Perhaps they brought them back at some point, but they were definitely discontinued starting in 2014.
