Wilson Hackathorn 9mm

This is a discussion on Wilson Hackathorn 9mm within the Handguns forums, part of the Gun Forum category; I already own a CQB Elite 45 so I guess that means I needed a 9mm Wilson. Here she is. Not the best pics yet ...

Wilson Hackathorn 9mm

I already own a CQB Elite 45 so I guess that means I needed a 9mm Wilson. Here she is. Not the best pics yet but more will come soon. So far on the bench this one feels like a winner. Yes, I have a bad habit of doing a complete disassembly on any new pistol first and range second.






Thanks from bustedknuckles and Dougboffl

Thanks. I will post more pics when I get back home later this week. I need to find a better back drop for pics than my reload bench.

Saweet!!
I just picked up a Wilson Combat/BCM gunfighter 1911 on Friday myself. Smoothest 1911 I've ever had the pleasure of shooting.
I thought they didn't recommend disassembly until after 4-500 rounds??
Guess it can't hurt though.

Every time I see one broken all the way down I want to learn more about John M Browning. He made this up! To compete with a revolver! Genius in the most profound definition of the man!

Wilsons are good to go from the factory. I am OCD. I like to check out the fit and lube up the pistol my way when I get them. This one is real tight in every aspect. I think I landed a real gem. Range report and more pics coming soon.

Dude, I am jealous. I would like to meet Ken Hackathorn someday. I really like his choice of options but I would not put ivory on a pistol like this. I know he loves ivory.

Still baffles me how they fell in to the ShokBuff scam but if it's what the customer wants they provide it.

Sweet Pistol!!
