I have a brand new CQB and it has scratches on the trigger. If you pull the trigger in all the way you can't see them. It's accentuated because it's a black trigger. Is this ok? I know it's only cosmetic, but I paid alot of $$ for it too. Just curious. Thanks .

My Classic does the same, I think that all aluminum triggers do that as they scrape the steel that surrounds them. I will live with it, but if you really hate it you can change the trigger to a steel or carbon fiber trigger.

I have the WC Sentinel and mine is also showing wear after less than half a case of ammo. I've seen a CQB and the CQB Compact and both had the same design flaw, if you want to call it that.

I've been told by one of the techs it's because of the extra tight tolerances. I guess there's a trade-off between looks and dependability. Wilson will choose dependability every time. I'm not complaining too much

MPower,
Replacing the trigger's not a bad idea. The weight gain would be negligible, not that I mind the added weight anyway. Unfortunately, my WC isn't made to specs like a lot of 1911's so I'm not sure if I have that option. I'll have to check.

Got the same problem on the trigger with my CQB Compact. Had it shaved and touched up, but still a problem. I guess I'll learn to live with it. It actually came to me like that. Guess it's a sign of using the thing, which isn't necessarily bad.

Called Wilson about it and they said the scratches were due to the tight tolerances and is considered normal wear. I guess I'll quit crying and go shoot the freakin thing.

Maybe we should call them en mass. I feel the same way. I spent big change on mine and I expected it to be PERFECT when I received it. Are we to picky???

Mechanical device, moving parts. My CQB spends 8 plus hours a day in and out of a holster, exposed to the elements. Has been whacked on door frames, car fenders and the ground. Still feeds everything I put in it, goes bang every time I pull the trigger and shoots like a damn laser beam. You will get marks on the trigger, frame rails and hammer face, just gotta live with it and you will love that gun.

Deliverer: Your scratches are on one side because whoever shot it pulled or pushed the trigger to one side as he shot.

This is normal wear. All my triggers had wear on the left side and (amazingly) shot left. Worked on correcting my pull to straight back and now they have wear on both sides and shoot straight. Amazing!

Jiminca, your username sounds like a country
That comment about the wear on one side of the trigger, I practice with both hands, as I'm sure a lot of you do. Maybe that's why there's wear on both sides of my trigger. Thanks for the heads up.
