Just bought a Wilson Combat RDP

I just got off the phone with Joe Rankin and paid my deposit on a new Wilson Combat RDP in 9mm. Mr. Joe has been very nice to deal with and very patient with my many questions. For those who do not know, the RDP is a dealer exclusive from Wilson and can only be purchased (new) from Joe. It is a "package" based on the Professional series. This type of gun that would cost a lot more if priced out with all of its features. In fact, someone correct me if I am wrong, but Wilson does not offer bobtail frame in it's standard line.

Please check him out. He looks like he has a few Supergrades that can be optioned the way you like.

There doesn't seem to be very much info on the interweb on this particular pistol in 9mm so I am hoping it is truly something special. I will update this post in maybe a month or two with a full review. What's funny is I set out looking to buy a Sig Sauer P226 Legion but my preferred FFL coudln't get one in stock from their distributor. Then, I went on gunbroker and saw a Wilson Combat 92G but I would have to send it back to Wilson for the action tune due to excise taxes. I then saw a Dan Wesson Eco 9mm but it was only 500 shy of a used Wilson Combat CQB 9mm I saw on gunbroker. I lost the auction and went to talk to Joe. My wallet hates me.

I've been glancing at these since they came out. I'm thinking about adding it as a "bonus goal" on my list of things to shoot for (no pun intended) with my new business. Maybe print a picture and post it up to look at now and then to keep me going. Lots of nice touches ont hat one!

TS - There are pics at Wilson Combat's blog. Have a towel ready for the drool...

Tejano, I love the bluing but unfortunately this has to be my one-gun-does-it-all. I will be shooting this at a local USPSA and 3-gun competition in addition to being a range and carry gun. I went with armor-tuff black because it says tuff so it must be tough.

Mreed911 if you don't mind me asking, what kind of business do you own? I'm an engineer...

The new RDPs now all come with a flush cut reverse crown barrel and a flat wire recoil spring btw

Nothing wrong with the Armor Tuff finish. If that was my only Wilson and I planned to hard use it like you, I agree with that logic. In fact, on my only Wilson I went with the Armor Tuff finish as well on my CQBE.

Can you explain this excise tax thing further?
