In celebration of forty years of building the world’s finest custom handguns, Wilson Combat issued a limited run of a special commemorative CQB Elite model in 2017.  This all-steel model uses the latest Wilson Combat parts and innovations like their in-house produced forged slides, frames, and barrels. These all-steel pistols are designed as carry guns and also feature our one-piece machined magwell, ambidextrous safety and slide top and rear serrations. The flush cut, reverse crowned barrel is deeply fluted and mates with a specially engraved, recessed reverse plug. Black Armor-Tuff is the standard finish.

The special grips on this model are handcrafted, premium desert ironwood with solid sterling silver medallions. The quality of this rare wood and its fit and finish are exceptional. Fully loaded with other cosmetic and performance options, this heirloom model will be at home in your collection or on your hip.
