Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary Boxed Set – Just In Time for Christmas!

Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary boxed set

The five-star Wilson Combat EDC X9 is one of my two everyday carry guns. It’s not as pretty as the one in Wilson Combat’s 40th Anniversary boxed set (above). My all-black double-stack gat is worn around the edges, thanks to a too-narrow Commander-sized .45 caliber 1911 holster (since replaced by a custom Hell-Bent Holsters‘ holster). And it doesn’t have the words “40 years of innovation” on the slide. Which is just as well as . . .

I’m 58-years-old. But enough about me . . .

Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary boxed set Hogue knife

The Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary boxed set includes an EDC X9-themed locking folder labelled “40 Years of Cutting Edge” — ’cause it’s made by Hogue and WC only started making/commissioning knives in the last decade.

Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary boxed set Supergrade 1911

The set also features a full-size Supergrade .45 labelled “40 Years of tradition.”

One thing the webpage doesn’t include: the price. If you have to ask you can’t afford it? Well I can’t and I asked. “You’ll have to talk to your dealer,” the nice man at WC answered. “We didn’t put a price on ’em.”

Wilson Combat boxed set on gunbroker.com

My dealer’s closed for Christmas. So I found a boxed set on gunbroker.com going for $11,025. I assume Wilson’s two guns, knife and coins combination retails for $11k. So now you know.

    Pretty guns. But this set is art. Eleven grand for a piece of art that will hang on a wall or sit on a table. The Mona Lisa and these nice firearms have the same chance of seeing the inside of a range. I’d be fine with a nice framed picture instead so I could use the money for something else.

    I don’t get paying thousands of dollars for an unreliable, low capacity safe gun. Not bashing 1911s but buying one for thousands is just retarded….

      That’s like saying it’s stupid to pay thousands for a canvas with some colors on it; you’re missing the point. And if you buy a custom 1911, you’re not buying a gun, you’re buying a a piece of art

        Don’t go kidding yourself with the whole “my gun is art argument.” Your just rationalizing an elaborate purchase. See what your return investment is on an $11,000 1911 compared to a Jackson Pollack painting. There’s lots of expensive 1911’s in the display case at the pawn shop but never saw any, Monet or Picasso paintings there……

          Well, to be fair, there is kinda a pawn shop for a Picasso or a Monet – it’s called Sotheby’s

    The commander is absolutely gorgeous. I want that one by itself. The knife, meh. The full size super grade? It’s nice, but doesn’t speak to me.

    Only anti-2nd Amendment politicians will be able to afford this sweet brace of pistols. As with all their stance on guns and gun Rights, not for mere commoners.
