Gunmetal: Really? I'll believe that when I see the Kimber truck at Wilsons loading dock, and their Master Award Winning Gunsmiths with a welder in their hand.They will not admit it, but the do use Kimber frames. They weld over the grip safety disconnector hole. Then finish over it.

About a year ago their were similar post all over this forum, about the kind of work these guys did prior to leaving Wilsons. Me and my pistol lived through it, and I didnt post my grievances about their former employees.
Wilson's has one of the best reputations in the industry. Unless you personally see them doing it, its just rumor. Lets keep it clean, and speak from personal expierince.
I expierinced some very nighthawkish stories first hand. I know who screwed up my $2000 gun, and they no longer work there, just like your friend. The nightmares ended when they left.I was told some very nightmarish stories that were witnessed firsthand.
Wilson never bought frames from Kimber directly. Both Kimber and Wilson used to get frames from Jerico. At some point Kimber bought Jerico, and I think they still own it (maybe partially) and still get their frames from them. Wilson started making their own frames back in 2002-2003. They used Caspian frames for their railed models for a couple of years but have recently dropped them when they switched to removable rail models.Gunmetal said:I have a friend who worked for Wilson in the near past. They have had a massive amount of "stuff" lately. All kinds of quality issues. He doesn't work for them anymore...though...for the time he did, it changed his mind on let's say certain things.
They will not admit it, but the do use Kimber frames.
