NRA Gun of the Week: Wilson Combat WCP320

by
posted on July 24, 2020
The WCP320 pistol is a semi-automatic 9 mm designed in collaboration between Wilson Combat and SIG Sauer. The result is a custom offering fully-featured with enhancements around which Wilson Combat has built its reputation.

Wilson Combat is well-known for its high-quality renditions of Browning’s M1911 design in addition to Beretta’s Model 92. Wilson advanced from classic metal-frame designs to the polymer-frame Glock design. The company found success with its Glock renditions and expanded to include its take on SIG Sauer’s P320 XSeries pistol.

The WCP320 pistol is a striker-fired design featuring a custom slide machined by Wilson Combat’s. The gun retains SIG’s fire-control group within a modified Wilson Combat polymer frame. The P320 X-series full-size frame has been heavily reworked to include Wilson’s starburst texturing pattern. Wilson also added front- and backstrap stippling to improve the user’s experience.

Further improving the experience with Wilson Combat’s WCP320 pistol is the X-TAC diamond-shaped texturing treatment added to the slide. This treatment extends across the full length of the slide’s top, which helps to reduce glare while providing purchase during manipulations. In addition, the diamond-like X-TAC shapes have been machined into the slide along the sides both front and rear.

Putting rounds on target is aided by Wilson’s ledge-style battlesight that houses a U-shaped notch to co-witness with a red fiber-optic front unit. Given the fact the WCP320 pistol is based on SIG Sauer's P320 XSeries, the gun includes the flat-faced XSeries trigger.

Our time on the range with this combination was enjoyable and for a nominal increase in price to own Wilson Combat’s rendition of the P320 XSeries, owners of the variant will find the enhanced version to be enjoyable at the range and dependable for defensive use.
