Wilson Combat’s ACP 1911

The aptly named Wilson Combat ACP pistol encompasses all of the essentials envisioned by the crew at Wilson Combat in what an elementary fighting single stack 1911 needs. The Wilson Combat American Combat Pistol (ACP) is available in both .45 ACP and 9mm Luger. Build wise, the Wilson Combat ACP makes use of the company’s Eagle Claw texturing around its grips, frontstrap and backstrap. In addition, the slide features only rear cocking serrations and uses Wilson Combat Battlesights, which consist of a plain black rear sight and a fiber optic front sight with a red fiber optic insert. Projectiles are sent downrange by way of a fitted match grade 5-inch barrel that sits flush and beveled with the bushing at the muzzle. Likewise all of its internal parts and mechanisms come from Wilson Combat’s famed line of Bullet Proof parts.


In the case of the American Combat Pistol, basic doesn’t mean no-frills, it means that this pistol has the required attributes needed in a good fighting 1911. The American Combat Pistol is still hand built and hand fitted, after all. With that being said, as an “elementary” fighting 1911, the Wilson Combat ACP is also a prime candidate for further customizations and enhancements like some of the other pistols in Wilson Combat’s lineup.
