Love my Wilson comp on my Kimber, I'll never go back.
Is your comp a screw on or bushing type

They only make one type:

It also makes it easier to disassemble as you don't require a tool. The only downside is that after thousands of rounds, the very end of the barrel is a little roughed up (as in the end is not smooth to the touch, you can feel a bit of roughness that polish won't take out), but it hasn't affected accuracy or functionality.

I see the photos of these beautiful 1911s and want one so bad. I just wish I could afford just one of the nice ones. Not a Safe queen but a Nice functional target pistol. Maybe some day.

Start out with a low cost solid manufacturer of a 1911 & mod it out to your liking and as your budget fits over time. Here a few examples. You'll also learn about the mechanics of the 1911 as you mod it. Stick your head in Pawn & gun stores regularly, Deals are out there.
