Just in the last year Night Hawks Custom Handguns have taken a big bite out of Wilson Combats gun sales nation wide. The big reason is because of problems that Wilson is having with slide to frame fit. At the end of the 2010 year Wilson had 46 handguns returned because of the lose fit discovered by dealers and customers and 2011 they called back 124 guns for the same problem. No telling how many people have them and don't know about this problem.

Interesting. I haven't seen a Wilson yet with anything like that and I'va handled a few now. I have seen some quality control issues with Nighthawk though. But I will say, nothing but great customer service with both. I'll have to give my guy a call. They are backed up a year now and the shot show just pushed them even further out.

^^^ True That ^^^ Wilson is one of the top makers around, enjoying a very good rep.


1. If you dont own one that has a problem.
2. That could not be solved by Wilson's customer service.

I question the purpose of your post.

Just Saying.

DOnt you think a source would be appropriate to post with that info?

THought that was obvious, but I guess not.

Owned Wilson and never had issues. Wilson is top notch when it comes to services... always take care of their customers, even at a lost. Not sure what your sources are but nothing I've seen lately comes close to being a loose fit... if nothing else, it's a super tight fit.

Unlisted sources on the Internet is basically someone's opinion.

So do you sell Night hawks or work directly for them.

Wilson still blows them out of the water when it comes to sales numbers.......and that ain't about to change,.
