Summary: The manufacturer’s description, specs, photo, pricing and user ratings for the Wilson Combat Hunter pistols.
Are you a handgun hunter? Frustrated with a fat revolver that you have to cock for every shot and won’t give you rapid, accurate second shot capability? Would two more rounds give you more confidence? Tired of dramatic changes in point-of-impact when changing bullet weights? If so, Wilson Combat says it has the gun for you: our new .460 Rowland Hunter, a hunting weapon built on the time proven 1911 platform.
The pistol begins with a frame CNC machined from a hammer-forged block of American steel. Wilson Combat pairs that with a super accurate 5.5″ heavy stainless match barrel, its crisp trigger, and 30 years of 1911 know-how. The Hunter is almost a half-inch slimmer than a typical large-caliber revolver, with an easy carrying flat profile. All the controls—safety, magazine release, and trigger—are easily reached and manipulated without changing your firing grip. It utilizes a special seven-round magazine, with one in the chamber you have 8 rounds to stop your quarry. Plus, it only takes a couple of seconds to drop the empty mag, pop in a full one, and get back down to business with seven more rounds.
The .460 Rowland Hunter comes with our reliable and durable Lo-Mount adjustable rear sight. The company says it tested the Hunter with 185-, 200- and 230-grain bullets, and all shot essentially the same point-of-impact.
Follow-up shots are quick and target acquisition is rapid due to the high-ride beavertail grip safety. It promotes a high grip and positions your hand as close to the plane of the barrel as possible to minimize muzzle flip and felt recoil. The long 6 7/8″ sight radius assures you excellent shot placement—and is .75″ inch longer than a S&W 629 with a 4″ barrel—but the overall length of the Hunter remains .25″ shorter and the empty weight is the same.
For low-light shooting, the Hunter is equipped with Crimson Trace laser grips for precise shot placement in even the most difficult conditions.
Wilson Combat says CorBon is offering some great factory hunting loads for the Hunter at fair prices so you won’t be forced to hand-load unless you want to.
