Larry Vickers’ Personally Built 1911 Comes Home

Vickers 1911

1911s often proudly serve multiple generation shooters. Vicker’s Tactical welcomes home one of the first ones ever built.

The 1911 market is always saturated with gun builders claiming their pistols have the best tolerances. Not all 1911s are created equally and the Vickers pistol is definitely one of those rare exceptions.

This particular pistol was in service since the 1990s and still runs as solid as day one. Larry was able to get the pistol back from the owner to add it to his collection of weapons.

The one item to pay attention to here is the high customer satisfaction that the previous owner had with this pistol. He claimed zero jams on the Vickers Pistol, and zero spring changes. For 1911s, thats huge.

If this pistol is indeed the unicorn and doesn’t jam or need constant maintenance then this pistol is worth every nickel charged by the Vickers Tactical Crew. The Vickers Elite from Wilson Combat is the contemporary version of Larry’s pistol and those going down range should definitely look at this platform.
