Manufacturer’s Description

Wilson Combat‘s X-TAC is a .45 ACP 1911-style semiauto with an enhanced grip texture and enhanced sight picture. 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. Scientifically designed to work with dry or wet hands, with our without tactical gloves, the X-TAC pattern redefines secure shooting comfort and gunhandling 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.

The X-TAC wears our Wilson Combat 1911 Battlesight. 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. It’s accompanied by the heavy-duty Wilson Combat fiber optic front sight.

Other features include:

  • A full-size carbon steel frame;
  • the X-TAC frontstrap/mainspring housing treatment;
  • a High-Ride beavertail grip safety;
  • a tactical thumb safety;
  • a 3.5–3.75 lb. crisp trigger pull;
  • a contoured magazine well;
  • G10 Starburst grips;
  • a 5” carbon steel slide;
  • a 5” stainless match grade barrel and bushing (.45 ACP), hand fit;
  • the X-TAC rear  cocking serration treatment;
  • de-horned for carry;
  • mil-spec parkerized phosphate finish; and
  • test-fire and zero.

Note: Wilson Combat also offers a compact version of this pistol.
