Wilson Combat to Give Away a Free 1911

Wilson Combat and Ballistic Radio are partnering to give away a Wilson Combat Protector 9mm that was used in some hardcore training. This amazing gun was put through the ringer by John Johnston, owner and host of Ballisticradio.com, to show how accurate, reliable and easy a 9mm 1911 is to shoot! Johnston is dedicated to teaching the public about owning, caring for, and responsibly using their firearms. He assesses the limits of various firearms in real life situations, testing elements such as weather and environment to see if the weapons live up to their hype. After thousands of rounds of ammo and multiple tests, he concluded the WC 1911 is a serious performer!

Wilson Combat has long since been a name synonymous with quality. Our guns are highly sought after for their quality, reliability, and durability. The 2015 Protector® Professional was designed from the ground up to be a next generation, all-around, carry 1911 pistol. With special attention given to crafting a pistol with modern styling and significant performance enhancement, the 2015 Protector® is based on the rugged Wilson Combat steel or lightweight aluminum frame with light-rail. Every 2015 Protector® has all of the features selected for Wilson Combat’s rendition of the ultimate modern tactical handgun, including a fluted tactical cone barrel, round butt, one-piece Bullet Proof® magwell, and a unique slide profile that wears both our signature carry cuts and abbreviated front cocking serrations — a unique styling feature of this model.
