Wilson Combat Announces New Protector Models

2211217

The 2015 Protector® is based on our steel or lightweight, light-rail frame in Full-size, Professional or Compact trim and was designed from the ground up as a next generation all-around, carry 1911 pistol with modern styling and performance enhancements.

Built on our rugged steel or lightweight aluminum light-rail capable frames, the 2015 Protector® will help you own the night in every possible fighting scenario with the legendary reliability, accuracy and detailing that a Wilson Combat custom pistol is known for. You can tailor the specifications and caliber of your chosen 2015 Protector® to the tactical task at hand. Whether you are carrying concealed or for duty use-the choice is yours, the size and performance options of the 2015 Protector® can be modified to meet your needs.

Every 2015 Protector® has all the features selected for our rendition of the ultimate modern tactical handgun including a fluted tactical cone barrel, round butt, one-piece Bullet Proof ® magwell and a unique slide profile that wears both our signature carry cuts and abbreviated front cocking serrations-a unique styling feature of this model.

Extensively tested by our internal cadre of experts and external tactical shooting professionals, the 2015 Protector® represents the best of the tactical 1911 breed.
