The pattern offers a positive gripping surface while lacking the abrasiveness of checkering. The X-TAC also features the new 1911 Battlesight as well as a fiber optic front sight. While Wilson advertising the X-TAC as an entry-level pistol, it is not short on features or quality. It is built with the same quality parts and by the same experienced gunsmiths as every other Wilson Combat pistol.
Other features include a high grip frontstrap and beavertail grip safety, beveled magazine well, match barrel and bushing. The grips are G-10 with the Wilson’s new Sunburst design. On the range, the X-TAC proved it was more than worthy of the Wilson banner that adorns the rear of the slide. Look for a complete review of the X-TAC in an upcoming Combat Handguns.
