Thanks, just ran across one that I like on Gunsamerica. Any differences between the CQB and Protector other that cosmetics?

Advantage:
better looks
usually stronger
no porosity

Disadvantages:
more expensive
requires maching instead of dropping out of the mold ready to go


You have to be careful because I've seen "tool steel" parts that were cast tool steel. But its usually a term used to refer to machined or EDM'd parts. I've used Wilsons tool steel parts in a couple of my guns and they are excellent! (hammer and 2 sears)

Current CQB's also use all tool steel parts.

All previous posts are correct, and are usually Black over Stainless Protectors. Never seen one configured in Grey or OD Green over Stainless though.

Hi KB, I saw one you recently sold and that I really liked. It was a shop demo or display. It was Black/stainless which I thought was the combat model.

If all goes well I am going to get one of these high end 1911s in the next month or two. Not 100% on the mfg. or model, but these combat models from wilson has " the look" that I like. Have been checking out the good and the bad from each on this forum.

Thanks guys for information.

That two-tone was a Classic Super Grade, which has since found a good home. I have to admit that I also like the Black over Stainless look...especially with black grips on the pistol!

I personally thought the black and green was slick in pictures and my friend thought it was butt-ugly...since my baby arrived, he agrees with me.... I guess what I'm saying is that I agree with jethead

But not the slide stop. It is still MIM, unless requested otherwise (and charged accordingly).

Also, the Protectors, in carbon steel, used MIM parts.

I felt the same way about the black/green combo in that I wasn't too impressed with the pictures. In person though, it's very cool. I didn't have nearly as much appreciation for the CQB in general until I saw it in person. Once I did, I have never felt a better 1911. I've handled several full customs from small name smiths as well as a couple of Baers and the Wilson CQB (with light rail is what I handled) was top dog. I want one although my only concern is that I may get tired of the green frame so I am thinking all black...
