“What can I say about Bill Wilson that you haven’t heard before? As a pioneer in the development of products for the practical pistol aficionado, he has no equal. Whether you’re talking about the legendary 1911 magazines he developed with Bill Rogers, properly-shaped grip safeties (commonly referred to as a beaver tail), or the best adjustable sights available for a pistol, he and his company are top of the line.
It’s really simple to understand when you think about it. He, like most of the folks using his products, is a shooter, and a damned good one. Any engineer can sit down and draw a pretty part on solid works, but until you’ve spent countless hours and shot hundreds of thousands of rounds on the range, you can’t know what that part is really supposed to do. Like common sense, you either have it or you don’t. You either get it or you don’t. The ability to figure out what a part needs to do to work correctly when it’s on your gun is different than just making it fit! Many in this business do not get that. Bill and his staff do.
They were there in the beginning, when we were just learning how to improve the 1911, and have built on that experience to produce the finest, best performing accessories available today. I in the past and still to this day use many Wilson Combat products. Whereas many parts designed and built back when I started in the 80’s have long since retired, most anything Wilson made is still in use today. And more than that, still winning. Wilson combat parts will make any gun better!”
