All of you Wilson Combat guys have been very generous with exceedingly helpful advice directed my way; a 1911 newbie without a single WC in the safe. That'll change in 2-3 hours, as I'm due to pick up a Baron Blue CQB from my FFL this morning. It was a safe queen that came my way through a Forum brother (who knew I had a few months wait ahead on my Supergrade build) and also through Greg at Tractus Specialty. A bit more beach time with the Rottie then I'm off to retrieve the Baron. Stay tuned...:~}

Really happy for you! Please have mercy and don't post any pictures. All mine are AT and SS so I avert my eyes and my wallet twitches every time a TB shows up on here.

Really thought...please post pics asap and give us a range report when you can.

Feelings of male (photographic) inadequacy

I guess I've got no one to blame but myself...using a 4-5 yr old iPhone 4 (that's twice been submerged) to take these shots. Plus, I'm a huge fan of Birdy's insane macro work (his 9mm Supergrade stickied here, and just posted yesterday, his Alchemic Falcon on the Nighthawk page). Anyway, I made an effort. Trust me; the Baron finish in person is like nothing I've ever seen on a pistol. Like a black mirror, if one can imagine that.

Mods that you might not see include...speed chute, flush cut/reverse crown barrel, gold bead, battlesight, slide top serrations, serrate rear of slide, thick bulletproof bushing, bulletproof upgrade package, and Nitre blue package.

Again, my apologies for the poor quality pics (the flash caused the bright dots) My first Wilson, and it is awesome!!!
