If you’ve missed out on Larry Vickers, you need to increase your YouTube consumption. Watch any sort of gun content and sooner or later the US Army 1st SFOD- Delta combat veteran and IDPA co-founder will show up and expounds (knowingly) on the firearms’ topic at hand. That particularly applies to 1911s. Hand-fitting custom examples of the pistol, in addition to fighting and competing with them, he developed the repute of knowing what makes them tick and pushes them to near perfection.
Given this, it came as little surprise Wilson Combat’s Vickers Elite lived up to its namesake’s reputation. A full-sized government model, the 1911 had a number of enhancements, including improved cocking serrations, thicker flange bushing and an improved magazine. Wilson and Vickers continue to collaborate, and recently unveiled the follow-up to their 2015 efforts — the Vickers Elite Commander. A mamma-bear model, the 4.25-inch barreled 1911 boast’s all the features of the line’s originator in a package a bit more practical to carry day to day.
