HELP KEEP OUR SHOOTING SPORTS SAFE

To quote the founder of Practical Pistolcraft, Jeff Cooper Every gun is ALWAYS loaded!
NEVER let the muzzle cover anything which you are not willing to
destroy!
Keep your finger OFF the trigger till your sights are ON THE
TARGET!

ALWAYS be sure of your target!

If these simple rules are ALWAYS followed this pistol will provide
you with many years of enjoyable use.

REPLACEMENT OF RECOIL SPRINGS/SHOK-BUFF ON


CAPTIVE GUIDE RODS

Put on safety glasses. Place the flange end of the guide rod on a flat,
strong surface (such as the top of a work bench) with the guide rod
pointed straight up. Turn the rod so that the head of the take-down pin
is facing your left. Hold the guide rod flange firmly down against the
table with the thumb and forefinger of your left hand. Grasp the
flange area of the plug with your right thumb and fore-finger, carefully
push the plug down and compress the recoil spring slightly. Hold the
plug steady with your right hand and carefully remove the take-down

pin with your left hand. Immediately grasp the base of the guide rod
again and slowly let the plug ease upward to let the recoil spring de
compress. Hold both the base of the guide rod and the recoil spring
plug firmly and keep your face clear of the plug. Re-assemble in
reverse order after replacement of recoil spring and SHOK-BUFF.
PROPER LUBRICATION

After cleaning, we recommend that your pistol be lubricated with


ULTIMA-LUBE Universal.
Lube Points:

Slide -

2-3 drops inside top just in front of locking lug cuts.

Barrel -

1 drop on each side of slide stop lug and at each slide


stop bearing surface. 2 drops at the muzzle and where
the barrel contacts the ID of barrel bushing.

Frame -

1-2 drops both front and rear on the frame rails as well
as in the slide rail cut on each side.

Guide Rod-

2-3 drops on the exterior surface where contact with the


plug is made.

A basic rule of thumb is to apply a thin coat of lube anywhere you see

sign of metal to metal contact and don't apply lube anywhere else.
Excess lube will only get you dirty and collect firing residue. A pistol

properly lubricated as shown below (FIG. PL1) should not need fur
ther lubrication for 300-500 rds. (Refer to accompanying video for
more detailed lubricating procedures.) NOTE: Video tape was made
before the development of ULTIMA-LUBEK Universal.

RECOMMENDED AMMUNITION (in order of preference)


Federal 230 gr Hydra-Shok (new style with rounded nose)

Winchester 185 gr Silvertip
Federal 230 gr JHP Classic
Remington 185 or 230 gr Golden Saber
Federal American Eagle 230 gr Hardball seems to be the best feeding

BREAK-IN

The WILSON COMBAT pistol is a finely tuned piece of


equipment constructed by knowledgeable technicians to
extremely close tolerances. It is tightly fitted to assure
maximum accuracy and long service life. We recommend
that you fire a minimum of 300-500 rounds of full charge
ammunition thru this pistol prior to initial dis-assembly.
This break-in is necessary to allow the contact surface to
properly "seat", thus insuring dependable functioning.
LOADING SEQUENCE #1

FIG. LI

Point the pistol in a SAFE direction and seat a loaded magazine.


Grip the pistol firmly with the shooting hand, trigger finger OUT of
the trigger guard pointed forward. Grasp the rear of the slide as pic
tured with the left or non-strong hand.

FIG. L2

Maintain a firm grip on the pistol with the right or shooting hand as
you retract the slide completely to the rear with your left or weak
hand.

FIG. L3

Release the slide allowing it to chamber a live round. THE PISTOL


IS NOW LOADED. Engage the thumb safety with the thumb of
your right or strong hand.

LOADING SEQUENCE #2

FIG. L4

Remove the magazine. Point the pistol in a SAFE direction and lock

the slide to the rear. Grip the pistol firmly with your right hand, trig
ger finger OUT of the trigger guard pointed forward. Insert a loaded
magazine.

FIG. L5

Wrap your left hand around your right hand to obtain a two hand hold.
You should be able to now position your left thumb above the slide

stop. Thumb the slide stop down with your left thumb allowing the
slide to close and chamber a round. Then engage the thumb safety
with your right thumb. NOTE: This method of loading is not recom
mended for left hand shooters.

UN-LOADING SEQUENCE

FIG. Ul

With the pistol pointed in a safe direction and the thumb safety
engaged, remove the magazine. Grip the pistol as pictured with your
right or strong hand, trigger finger OUT of the trigger guard pointed
forward. Caution: This pistol can be fired with the magazine
removed and a live round in the chamber. Grasp the cocking serra
tions of the slide, flip the thumb safety off and SLOWLY retract the
slide. When the cartridge rim contacts the ejector nose, the live round
will either pivot up and out of the ejection port or come loose from the
extractor hook and fall thru the empty magazine well. WARNING:
Never retract the slide rapidly to unload a live round, the ejector nose
could contact the primer and detonate the cartridge.

custom pistol is properly maintained. We recommend that you field
strip, clean and lubricate every 500 rounds.
