Wilson Vickers Elite

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.

Michigan Permit to Purchase

Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee to Consider Repeal of Permit to Purchase and Gun Registration on Wednesday

This Wednesday, July 18, the Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a special hearing on legislation to repeal Michigan’s “permit-to-purchase” and registration requirements for handguns. House Bill 5225, which seeks to replace the state handgun “permit-to-purchase” requirement with the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, has already passed in the state House of Representatives by an overwhelming 74 to 36 vote on June 13. Additionally, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear the two companion bills to HB 5225, House Bill 5498 and House Bill 5499, both of which also passed the state House and were sent to the Senate last month.

HB 5225, sponsored by state Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93), would repeal the outdated and ineffective “permit-to-purchase” requirement. Under the current state process, gun buyers must apply with their local law enforcement agency and pass a written test before being authorized to buy a handgun. This “permit” is valid for only one gun and it expires after ten days. This process became obsolete when the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) took effect in 1998. Since that time, federal law has required a national criminal records check for the purchase of any firearm, from any gun dealer, in every state. The NRA has been working diligently to repeal the antiquated, costly and unnecessary “permit-to-purchase” obstacle for gun owners, and has coordinated with several state Representatives to produce the new language for HB 5225.

HB 5225 as amended would, if enacted:

  • Repeal the state requirement to seek police permission to purchase a firearm by traveling to a local police station and obtaining a permit to purchase.
  • Repeal the requirement for a law-abiding citizen to register a legally purchased and owned firearm with the government through the police.
  • Adopt the use of the federally-funded National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
  • Cut Michigan’s costs by using the federally-administered national instant background check system and eliminate wasted man-hours of tracking lawful gun owners in Michigan.
  • Default to the federal standard of prohibited persons and require a background check for each purchase.

Murdoc is optimistic that this is going to become law, but Michigan residents take a few minutes to contact your senators to make sure they know you care about this. Combined with the elimination of the “safety inspection” (registration) requirement after any pistol purchase, Michigan is finally on the right path for handgun ownership.
