Years of practical experience as an assaulter, pistolsmith, competitive shooter, industry consultant and trainer have formed the basis for the Vickers Elite-Larry Vickers’ signature Wilson Combat model 1911. The Vickers Elite combines many of our time tested custom handgun features and ads some new modifications as requested by Larry to create a unique signature pistol with universal tactical appeal.
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.
The Vickers Elite wears 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. The Vickers Duty Magazine 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 flatwire 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.
