Tactical Solutions Pac-Lite

     Notes: This .22-firing pistol is designed for recreational use such as plinking, but is also applicable to general firearms training and short-range varmint hunting or even competition.  It is based on the Ruger 22/45, and can be bought complete or as an upgrade kit.  (We will deal with the complete pistol here.) Modifications include a short length of MIL-STD-1913 rail above the receiver, an adjustable rear sight behind the rail, a green fiberoptic blade as a front sight, and a muzzle brake. (The largely-superfluous muzzle brake can be removed and replaced with a thread cap, or even a suppressor.)  The pistol includes an extended slide-racker, a SLAM magazine, a beveled magazine well, and G10 grips.

Taylor’s & Company Tactical 1911-A1

     Notes: This is a self-defense pistol that has enough features to make viable as a budget competition pistol. The pistol is a comprehensive representation of an old-style M-1911A1, with some modern wrinkles. The magazine holds eight rounds instead of seven, and has an extended baseplate to facilitate loading. The rear sights are fully-adjustable target-type sights, and the front sight is a dovetailed blade. Unlike the M-1911A1, the 1911-A1 has cocking grooves front and back of the slide. Like the original M-1911A1, the frame and slide are Parkerized.  The 1911-A1 is made of heavy-gauge steel and is thus heavy, soaking up felt recoil and muzzle flip. The grips are checkered wood.  A variant has double diamond checkering pattern.  Other variants differ primarily in color, and have checkered polymer grips.  They come in OD Green, Dark Earth, Gun Metal Gray, Coyote Tan, and Blued.  The Coyote Tan model has G10 grips. These versions are identical for game purposes. A version of the Parkerized model has a 3,625-inch barrel, as opposed to the 5-inch barrel of the standard model.

Uselton IA Commander

     Notes: The Uselton Arms IA Commander is basically a 1911 commander-sized pistol brought into the 21st century by using up-to-date manufacturing methods and materials, and other modern features.  This construction begins with a lightweight-yet-strong steel slide and an aluminum frame.  To this is added an aluminum loop hammer, an extended beavertail and grip safety (with a bump at the lower end for positive engagement), and an aluminum skeletonized trigger.  Sights consist of a Novak adjustable combat rear sight coupled with a fiberoptic front sight; the front sight is drift-adjustable.  The grip plates are hard rubber and textured in a pattern called by the company “G10 Uselton.”  The trigger is crisp and light, comparable to a match trigger.  The magazine well is well beveled, and reloads are speedy.  The 4-inch match barrel has a target crown.  The top of the stainless steel slide had rows of grooves for use in quick shots, and a firing picture must be fast.  Finish is brushed for the frame, and brushed stainless steel for the slide.  The slide stop and manual safety are deeply checkered to aid in quick actuation.  Proprietary magazines are provided when you buy one, but the pistol can take virtually any 1911 6, 7, or 8-round magazine.

USMC MEU(SOC) Pistol

     Notes: This modified M-1911A1 was made by the US Marines to be a backup weapon for Marines armed with the MP-5 submachinegun.  (MEU(SOC) stands for Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable).)  As such it is normally employed by Recon, FAST units, and bodyguards.  Improvements include an ambidextrous safety, a rounded hammer spur to preclude snagging, and rubber-coated grips and a more comfortably shaped grip safety.  The magazine well is also beveled to make loading easier under stress.

Wildey Survivor  

     Notes: The Wildey Survivor, also called the Wildey Magnum or simply the Wildey, is a powerful handgun designed to fire some of the most powerful handgun cartridges available (unfortunately, most of which are proprietary).  It was first introduced in the early 1970s chambered for .45 Winchester Magnum, but Wildey Moore, the inventor of the Wildey pistol, trusted the wrong backers and it was 1983 before Mr. Moore regained control of his company.  The Wildey was made famous by Charles Bronson’s use of a .475 Wildey Magnum-chambered version in Death Wish III.  Though they are “manufactured,” the Wildey is not mass-produced; each weapon is essentially hand-built for the most part, and thus they remain extremely rare pistols.

     Construction of the Wildey is almost entirely of steel; most are made of stainless steel with a bright finish, but a version called the Hunter has a matte stainless steel finish.  Barrels come in a variety of lengths, but they can be removed easily by the shooter and replaced with a barrel of a different length.  Most Wildey proprietary cartridges are essentially shortened rifle cartridges, and virtually all of these proprietary rounds are based on necked-down versions of the .475 Wildey Magnum cartridge (Mr. Moore’s second chambering for the Wildey pistol).  Barrels include a full-length ventilated sighting rib, along with a ramp front sight (with interchangeable blades) and a fully adjustable rear sight.  The operating system is unique; it uses gas operation, but this system includes an air/hydraulic piston along with vent holes that actually drive the action as well as somewhat soften the massive recoil.  The Wildey is also a double-action weapon, with several internal safeties, a manual safety, and a decocker.  The operating system allows the Wildey to digest many types of ammunition and bullet types, ranging from rubber to steel-cored, and from sub-loadings to powerful types of wildcat versions of its cartridges.  This system also allows Mr. Moore to adjust the Wildey to fire variant cartridges at the request of certain customers.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This was an extremely rare weapon in the Twilight 2000 timeline even before the war, and close to impossible to find afterwards.  The ammunition is also quite difficult to find, and most found after the November Nuclear Strikes is handloaded by owners of a Wildey pistol.  The .41, .44, and .45 Wildey Magnum chamberings are not available in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Wilkinson Linda

     Notes: The Linda is a large assault pistol which was designed for civilian, military, and police use.  Police sales were virtually nonexistent, and the military was not interested, but some civilian sales were made.  The Linda, with its large magazine capacity, was first banned in California and then by the Brady Gun Ban, and production was never resumed.  The Linda is a large pistol which looks more like a small submachinegun or machine pistol than a standard automatic pistol, but it was made only in semiautomatic form (though it is reputedly easy to convert to automatic).  The construction is largely of steel, though the pistol grip is of PVC plastic and the fore-end is of maple.  The rear sight is adjustable and protected by large dog-ears, and the front sight is an adjustable post also protected by large dog-ears.  The Linda is also drilled and tapped for a base for a scope or other optics.

     Some parts of the big brother of the Linda, the Terry carbine (see US Sporting Rifles W-Z), can be combined with the Linda to produce a rather unusual (if illegal) weapon.  The barrel of the Linda and Terry are interchangeable, and the Terry’s stock may be added to the Linda.  The intent of the manufacturers was to produce a kit to change the Linda into a sort of faux Terry, but the long barrel may be added to the Linda without adding the stock to produce a very long-barreled pistol, or the stock may be added without changing the barrel, producing a stocked (and highly illegal under US law) pistol.  Statistics for these variations are provided below, but the GM should not the legal status in games where it may be applicable (such as Merc 2000 or Dark Conspiracy).  The Terry barrel is 16.2 inches long (as opposed to the 8.3-inch Linda barrel) and is usually tipped with a conical flash suppressor.  The stock is of maple and does not fold.

     The Linda’s design is quite evolved, but does have some shortcomings and quirks.  The magazine release and the croosbolt safety are located one above each other on the left side and are the same size, so those who are unfamiliar with the Linda may accidentally release the magazine when they intended to put it on safety, or vice versa.  Field stripping is extremely complicated and requires tools; a full armorer disassembly is even more difficult.  Reassembly can also be difficult, because some parts look at first glance the same and can be confused.  The Linda has trouble digesting ammunition with thin-walled brass, and also tends to jam when firing hollow-point ammunition.

Wilson Combat Classic

     Notes: Like all Wilson Combat firearms, the Combat Classic is highly accurized, well-built and combat-tough, and simply nice to look at – essentially, a work of art at an affordable price. (Let me note here one more time that the prices below are game prices and not real-life prices.)  The Combat Classic is a 1911-type pistol given the Wilson Combat treatment – in particular, by John Taffin, a legend in the firearms community for his designs and shooting abilities.  The Combat Classic uses the standard M-1911 barrel length of 5 inches – but this barrel is beyond-match-quality with a match-quality bushing and a full-length guide rod.  Most of the parts are in fact Wilson Combat special BulletProof parts, designed for exceptional quality and durability.  The rear sight is a Wilson Combat Lo-Mount Adjustable sight, and the front sight is a squared blade; tritium-insert night sights are optional. Finish is in Wilson Combat’s ArmorTuff coating; the standard finish is a black slide with a stainless steel frame, but the slide and frame may be had in any combination of black, stainless steel, OD green, desert tan, or gray.  The finish may also be given a polymer undercoat if desired by the buyer for extra resistance against wear and tear.  The working parts for the Classic Combat are hand-fitted (and adjusted, if necessary).  The hammer is a loop hammer of light alloy, as is the trigger (the trigger group is otherwise of steel).  The trigger pull weight is slightly adjustable (from 3.25 and 3.75 pounds), and is noted for it’s crisp letup and smooth pull.  The checkering on the frontstrap and rearstrap are 30 lpi.  The Flat mainspring housing, the beavertail, and grip safety, and the trigger guard are designed to ensure a high grip on the pistol; this is regarded as the best grip on a 1911-type pistol.  The Combat Classic may be had almost entirely dehorned if desired.  Construction is almost entirely of carbon or stainless steel; some of the non-steel parts are noted above, and the grip plates are of Cocobolo wood (checkered or smooth at the buyer’s option).

Wilson Combat CQB-LM Professional

     Notes: This is a highly-accurized 1911-type pistol designed primarily for military and police use, but also available to civilians.  It is a full-sized 1911, with a black steel slide and OD green steel frame with an Armor-Tuff finish which is highly corrosion-resistant.  Under the barrel is a MIL-STD-1913 rail for the attachment of accessories; this rail is unusual in that it is detachable instead of integral with the frame.  This was done so that when accessories are not needed or wanted, the rail may be removed and the CQB-LM Professional will fit in a standard holster.  (Often, pistol with rails need a special holster to allow them to fit, especially if they have accessories attached.  The parts of the pistol are solidly-fitted and have little play.  The rear sight is adjustable for windage, but the front sight is fixed.  They have tritium inserts.  The extractor is of an enhanced-reliability design known as “Bullet-Proof,” and the ejector is extended to further increase reliability.  The beavertail and grip safety ride high and are extended.  The ejection port is lowered and flared.  Edges are rounded to make drawing easier and stop the pistol from “biting” the shooter.  The barrel is heavy and coned, with a full-length guide rod.  It is considered almost abnormally accurate, considering its design.

Wilson Combat KZ-45

     Notes: This is basically an M-1911A1 with a polymer frame.  Wilson Combat says this gives the frame the strength of a steel frame with the weight of alloy. (M-1911A1 components will even fit on and in this frame.)  The design is further improved by making extraction more reliable; the M-1911A1 can stovepipe at times, and the KZ-45 is far less likely to do that.  The “KZ” in the name refers to the composite frame, a combination of Kevlar and Zytel.  This material allows Wilson Combat to produce a pistol with a thinner frame, making the pistol with its double-column magazine have a smaller grip than the M-1911A1. The KZ-45 has some unusual features -- for example, the extractor and trigger guard are one unit and cannot be replaced by themselves. The base machining is dome in South Africa; after importation of the raw parts into the US, they are finished and turned into a pistol by Wilson Combat in the US.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This weapon does not exist.

Wilson Combat Special Ops CQB Pistol

     Notes: This is a match-grade variant of the M-1911A1 custom-designed for the US Army's Delta Force by a small Arkansas weaponsmith named Wilson who normally designed accurized weapons for competition.  Delta was originally equipped with 9mm Parabellum pistols, but found in Iraq and Somalia that these weapons were inadequate for their needs.  Modifications include replacement of nearly all parts with match-grade, high-quality versions of the parts, including the trigger group, barrel, hammer, grip plates, and magazine wells.  All controls have been made ambidextrous and the sights have luminous inserts for use at night.  The moving parts have been modified, often by hand, to move smoothly and allow for more precise and quicker action. 

     Twilight 2000 Notes: Just before the Twilight War, in 1995, Wilson made another 100 of these weapons and offered them for sale in the civilian market.  Just before the Twilight War, Delta began to re-equip with HK Mk 23 OHWS pistols, but many of these weapons were retained due to the familiarity with the weapon.

Wilson Combat Sentinel

     Notes: The Sentinel series was designed to provide a concealable, but powerful handgun, which is also reliable and with near-hand-fitted quality.  The Sentinel has a 3.6-inch coned bull barrel with a match bushing and a full-length guide rod.  The Sentinel is to put as much weight near the muzzle as possible, to fight muzzle flip while disturbing balance as little as possible.  In addition to the rear cocking serrations, the Sentinel’s slide has cocking grooves near the front of the slide.  The Sentinel is dehorned as much as possible. The mechanism makes the pistol 0.5 inches shorter than the typical pistol of its size.  The backstrap is finely checkered; the grip plates are grooved. The magazine well is beveled.  The front sight is fiberoptic; the rear sight is an adjustable battlesight. The Super Sentinel is the same pistol, but chambered for .38 Super, and has an alloy frame. The Ms. Sentinel also has an alloy frame, but also has red wood grip plates, a matte black frame and slide, and smaller grips for smaller hands. The Ultralight Carry Sentinel is also quite similar, but has micarta rubber ribbed grip plates, tactical-sized controls, a solid trigger, and the addition of finer backstrap serrations and serrations on the top of the slide to cut glare and mirage when aiming.  The Ultralight Carry Sentinel has an even shorter profile than other Sentinels.

Wilson Combat Tactical Elite

     Notes: The Tactical Elite is a defensive pistol that is also equally adept at competition shooting.  It has a beveled and funneled integral magazine well and a trigger adjustable for pull weight. The 5.1-inch barrel is hand-fitted, match-grade, and uses a heavy-flanged cone shape. The rear sight is called a Battlesight and is made by Wilson Combat; the front sight is a fiberoptic sight. The beavertail is made for a high grip, as is the trigger guard.  It has a one-piece guide rod and a recoil spring meant to soak up felt recoil.  Construction is largely carbon steel, with G10 grips.

Wilson Combat Tactical Super Grade Compact

     Notes: In real life terms, this is an expensive pistol.  It was, in 2003, perhaps the best pistol that Wilson Combat made, virtually handmade literally by one gunsmith at Wilson Combat.  This alone makes the Tactical Super Grade Compact a weapon virtually unrivalled in fit and finish, with parts made to extremely tight tolerances which are hand-selected, and Wilson Combat gives the craftsman no time limit to turn the pistol out.  The TSG Compact is made almost entirely from high-grade steel, except for the aluminum Ultralight Wilson trigger, and checkered wooden grip panels.  The hammer is of the loop type, the grip safety is designed with a small bump in it to make sure that it actuates in the hand, the thumb safety is contoured and ambidextrous, the magazine release is extended and the magazine well is a beveled Wilson Speed Chute well to allow for quick and positive magazine changes.  The frontstrap, cocking serrations (on the front and back of the slide) are checkered at 30 lpi for a good grip.  The TSG Compact uses a Wilson Bullet Proof extractor which is polished and tuned, as well as a lowered and flared ejection port and extended ejector; extraction failures are extremely rare.  The barrel is throated and match grade, the guide rod is full-length with a reverse plug.  The pistol has been almost totally dehorned, with virtually no places where the pistol can snag when drawn (the extended beavertail perhaps being the lone exception).  All controls operate with crisp positive clicks, and the trigger has a light, crisp pull with no overtravel.  You can shake the TSG Compact, but it won’t rattle.  Finish is two-tone Armor-Tuff, with a black slide and a gray frame.  Sights are Wilson Tactical Combat Pyramid tritium night sights. 

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This pistol does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.
