The only Wilkinson I've ever seen was the Terry. It was made in the 1980s(?) and what was now called an "assault carbine".
In Handguns Of The World there are listed some Wilkinsons. One small paragraph gives no details except that the officers liked the Wilkinson. The other is an article on Wilkinson Sword Company's attempt to get a gov't contract to build a Bergmann-style handgun for military contracts. It made it past the first stage of testing but that was as far as it went.
Don't know if this is what you're looking for.
