Wilson Combat introduces the Full Size and Compact X-TAC Elite 1911, available in .45 ACP, 9 mm and .38 Super.

Enhanced by Wilson Combat gunsmiths for daily carry and hard use training, the X-TAC Elite is a unique choice for shooters looking for a practical 1911-style custom pistol that comes standard with multiple cutting-edge cosmetic and tactical performance options.

The Wilson Combat X-TAC tread pattern is known for solid traction and high round-count shooting comfort. Coupled with performance options like our reload-enhancing one-piece Bullet Proof Magwell and carry options like the concealment hammer and grip safety the X-TAC Elite has all the right custom features and good looks. Other options like well-executed top and rear of slide serrations cut down glare on bright range days. Extra detail is lavished on the X-TAC Elite slide with machined carry cuts, ball endmill cuts and a heavy machined bottom slide chamfer that enhances cosmetics, streamlines your pistol's profile and reduces sharp edges.

The bi-directional, X-TAC frontstrap and slide treatment offer enhanced grip and improved durability over traditional checkering in severe and hard-use environments. Scientifically designed by Bill Wilson to work with dry or wet hands and with or without tactical gloves, the X-TAC pattern redefines secure shooting comfort and gunhandling without the coarse, painful nature of other grip treatments. In tandem with the aggressive G-10 Starburst grips, the X-TAC tread pattern locks securely into the firing hand and will reduce muzzle flip without snagging on clothes or cover garments.

The X-TAC Elite has all of the same Wilson Combat  internal quality as the company's flagship CQB pistols with guaranteed accuracy, enhanced reliability and the highest quality parts and assembly in the industry. All of this is backed up by Wilson Combat's industry leading customer service policy where the company ensures customer satisfaction with Wilson Combat firearm products forever with-no strings attached.
