Anyone have a Wilson KZ 45?

Looking for opinions on the Wilson Combat KZ45 double stack 1911, also looking for an approximate value on an unfired early model in new condition.
If I get pics, I will post them.

I had one. Good gun. Accuracy was very good. Reliable. For ten rounds of 45 ACP ACP the grip frame worked well. Just didn’t care for the balance with the poly frame. I amnpast that and I do have a hint of seller’s remorse.

I have one and really like it. I find I actually do like the balance and the trigger/accuracy are pure Wilson. The value seems to jump around but the last 2 on GB went for 1200-1500. I think this is a little high but the other day I gave op on a KZ9, when it went for over 1500 so what do I know. One issue is who knows how long magazines will be around I believe they are still available from wilson to free states.

Not sure but you can investigate the BUL 10 shot 45. BUL made the frames or its their design, IIRC. I think the mags may work.

Thanks that's good to know. Funny how I assumed the mag would be illegal in Md., guess I'm trained that anything extra is a no no. Thanks

Itís not marked as a KZ 45 but definitely appears to be one. Itís a 2002 model with a low serial number of WCP 0002**. It has the bag, two mags, two manuals, test target and the QC and test fire checklist.

Not sure if anything effects the value or not.

I havenít seen it in person and didnít notice that in the pic. He says itís never been fired, that itís been sitting in the safe since he bought it.
