Bought a KZ 45

Tell me what you think, I purchased a used Wilson KZ 45 last week, it is black with FO sights, case, extra mags, and a range bag (the gun store owner a retired NYPD officer said it had only350 through it). The weapon has some visible wear on it probably from the previous owner holstering it and what not, but here is the question, I paid 1,050 and I'm not sure I got the best deal, what do you think?

Also, will Hogue 1911 finger grips fit this weapon?

Thank you very much.

Apparently you thought you were making a good deal when you made the purchase, so it must have been a good deal.

Now for my opinion, and that ain't worth much, on the Wilson KZ-45. It is my favorite pistol. I have some very nice pistols from Custom makers and from regular manufactures. If I had to pick one gun the KZ would win. I have carried it, shot it, used it in competition, and then put it back in the safe and take something else out. I always go back to the KZ.

I am currently shooting in the Limited Division of USPSA and am using a STI, but if I go back to Limited 10 the KZ will be called to duty.

Mine came with a .68" five shot (at 15 yards) test target. The only thing I have done to it is add a gold bead front sight.

You have bought a superb pistol if your's is anything like mine.

The KZ receiver is moulded in one piece like a Glock. It doesn't HAVE grips.

At one point I put skate board tape on the grips to give a better bite to my grip. It was OK, but the standard grip is good once you get use to it.

I forgot to tell you that one of my friends has the short KZ and he loves his, too.
