Question: what’s a “working operator”? Google search, fifth entry: How to Find Home-Based Phone Sex Operator Jobs. Wilson X-tac press release, first sentence: “Enhanced grip texture, Enhanced sight picture and Wilson Combat’s legendary attention to detail add up to a unique new offering destined to be a top choice of working operators everywhere.” Oh baby!  “The new bi-directional, X-Tac frontstrap and slide treatment offer enhanced grip and improved durability over traditional checkering in severe and hard-use environments.” I’ll have whatever she’s shooting. There’s more?

Scientifically designed to work with dry or wet hands, with our without tactical gloves, the X-Tac pattern redefines secure shooting comfort and gun handling without the coarse, often painful nature of other grip treatments. In tandem with our 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.

Whew! Was that as good for you as it was for me? More prosaically, the X-tac wear’s the brand spanking new Wilson Combat 1911 Battlesight. The news is so big that the company had to use two photos to show it. (Site picture that Batman!).

This high profile rear sight has a .145” wide U-Notch for optimum sighting in low-light, dynamic range conditions. The rear blade of the sight is serrated, while the notch area is recessed into a semi-circular pocket for a crisp, protected sight picture. Accompanied by the new heavy-duty Wilson Combat fiber optic front sight, this resulting sight picture is clearly amazing.

Hey, I write the jokes around here. Anyway . . .

Wearing a time-tested Mil-Spec Parkerized phosphate finish for further enhanced grip, the X-Tac is everything needed in a professional’s working gun without any of the frills except superior performance.

Since when is superior performance a frill? Pedants of the world unite, these guys have some serious guns. Meanwhile, Wilson fans should set their plastic for medium high. We’re talking $2,395.00, plus frills.
