Wilson Combat continues adding to its Vickers pistol series, debuting the new Elite Commander model chambered in both .45 ACP and 9mm.

Sporting a 4.25-inch stainless steel bushing barrel, the Commander model pairs the classic look of the full-size Vickers Elite 1911 with a compact carry size. Pairing a forged slide with G-10 grips, the Commander pistol provides wide serrations and a one-piece Bullet Proof Magwell.

Measuring 7.85-inches in overall length, the Commander weighs 45.2-ounces with a 1.5-inch accuracy guarantee at 25-yards.

“The Vickers Elite Commander starts with Wilson Combat’s hand-fitted, forged slide and frame combination along with their forged stainless steel bushing barrel for impeccable reliability and precise accuracy,” Wilson Combat said in a press release. “Wilson Combat’s rigorous hand-fitting specifications yield a match-accurate defensive pistol that you can count on regardless of shooting scenario.”

The Vickers Elite Commander is available through Wilson Combat dealers with the .45 ACP model retailing for $3,850 and the 9mm variant coming in at $3,960.
