    Very nice review as usual.

    Good for Wilsons for allowing the extended test, it speaks volumes that they are willing to allow that sort of test, as well as the fact Steve trust the pistol enough to carry it on Duty. I look forward to reading the follow up...

    Great review, Steve! This pistol certainly looks like a winner.

    I think the gun is a winner. Save for the X treatment, it's really a plain 1911 model, that has the "Semi-Custom" build quality. Everything under the hood is top notch, and fitted as it should.
    If it isn't durable, it isn't reliable.

    Very good review, Steve. The Wilson X-Tac appears to be an exceptional pistol. I'm particularly interested in how the fiber optic front sight withstands the rigors of everyday carry and use, as well as the ability of the Armor-Tuff finish to protect the gun.

    Icon17 Great review

    I enjoyed this review. Look forward to seeing how the Armor-Tuff holds up, as I have a Wilson that doesn't see a holster.

    3 1/2 pound trigger; do they all ship that light?

    Standard is 3.5-3.75#. We will set the trigger pull for whatever you like within reason.

    What was meant by "Semi-Custom". Is it like Kimber level? Is there MIM in the XTAC? Looks like a nice pistol but if I go into the higher end pistols I'm not sure if the pistol should be described as "Semi-Custom". Would a Wilson Professional or CQB be "Semi-Custom"?
