Well, she finally made it to my FFL today and started the DROS. I am sad now because I could not bring her home with me today, 10 lonnnnnnnnngggggg days. :mad:

Thank you Prowler for giving me the opportunity to own a Wilson Combat. The gun is in better shaped that I could even imagine. The trigger on this thing feels so freaking smooth, none of my other guns even come close to the way the trigger feels. I can't wait to take her to the range in 10 days.

My new gun (to me).....:)

Thank you all for the kind words.

What does "cool grip screws" mean?

The nice thing about slotted screws is there are millions of objects available if you need to remove them in a hurry or emergency. Can't say the same thing about torx or hex screws.

I like the way torx and hex screws look. That is what I was referring as "Cool grip screws". I know what you mean about how easier it would be to take off the slotted screws that it currently has, but I would seriously would love to find a place that sells them torx or hex screws. Any links for that.

I am not planning on changing the grips, just the screws.:) Thanks for the link Saigon. I did see a gun just like mine there with the Hex screws and it makes the gun look a lil bit nicer.

USN CHIEF

No still waiting for it Shane. I think it was about 2 weeks ago when I filled out the request. I will let you know if that thing does not show up with in the next 2 weeks or so. Now is the DVD the Owner's/Operator manual? Or just a history and advertisement of their products? Because I don't have the owner's manual.
