45th Anniversary CQB®


$4000 (.45 ACP)
$4100 (9mm)

To commemorate Wilson Combat’s 45th Anniversary of gunsmithing, we are bringing back a classic “retro” style that built the foundation of our business back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Custom 1911 handguns of that period were rapidly evolving based on the needs of practical pistol shooters and Wilson Combat emerged as a leader in 1911 handgun customization by focusing on performing superior quality work at a fair price with a reasonable delivery time-those core values still drive our business today.


To commemorate Wilson Combat’s 45th Anniversary of gunsmithing, we are
bringing back a classic “retro” style that built the foundation of our
business back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Custom 1911 handguns of
that period were rapidly evolving based on the needs of practical pistol
shooters and Wilson Combat emerged as a leader in 1911 handgun
customization by focusing on performing superior quality work at a fair
price with a reasonable delivery time-those core values still drive our
business today.

The 45th Anniversary 1911 handguns that we are building are very limited in
nature and truly exceptional in cosmetics and quality. We have chosen to
revert back to some of the classic custom touches we were known for like an
upswept, retro grip safety, traditional Bo-Mar style adjustable rear sight
with a staked ramp front, a retro Commander style hammer, Swenson-style
ambidextrous thumb safety, and a coarsely serrated slide top reminiscent of
the finest bespoke guns available to shooters at the time.

This custom 45th Anniversary model will dress out in a fully hand-polished
deluxe blue finish with handcrafted, premium desert ironwood grips
featuring a smooth finish that shows off its amazing grain and markings and
logos will harken back to our early models, albeit with more modern
cosmetics.

Timeless style combined with limited production and impeccable quality
ensure the Wilson Combat 45th Anniversary edition will be an instant
collectible and highly sought after for generations to come.
