“The Vickers Elite is the natural evolution of the Wilson Combat that I have used as a primary training 1911 for several years. In arriving at the Vickers Elite design, I retained the majority of the features found on that pistol while tweaking a few others. The result is a superb 1911 built for serious use. It combines a classic look with a modern twist, and in case you hadn’t figured it out yet, I am quite pleased with how it turned out." -Larry Vickers
The Vickers Elite starts with our precision-machined and hand-fitted forged slide and frame combination along with our match-grade barrel for impeccable reliability and precise accuracy. Renowned Wilson Combat hand-fitting to rigorous specifications yields a pistol that you can count on regardless of the shooting scenario at hand. We’ve included the Vickers Tactical logo on the slide and on the proprietary G-10 grips to immediately identify this model in the field. A special .45 caliber Wilson Combat magazine was also developed for this model with extensive input from Vickers based on his deployment experience. It has a reinforced solid tube for added strength, a newly engineered follower with sand cuts and a last round retention feature. The standard coil spring has been replaced with a stainless flat wire spring for the ultimate in long -term feeding reliability in extreme environments and hard use. An extended steel base pad has been added to make this magazine the new standard for tactical use.
