USA -(Ammoland.com)- Wilson Combat has redefined the defensive handgun with the EDC X9, a modern hybrid of our EDC 9 1911 slide assembly mated with the all new high-capacity X-frame.

This groundbreaking design combines the accuracy, ergonomics and trigger pull of the classic 1911 design with enhanced reliability, and concealable, high capacity performance.

Wilson Combat EDC X9

Designed by Bill Wilson and Wilson Combat engineers, the X-frame is a 15-round, high capacity 9mm 1911 frame that is similar in size to a traditional compact, single stack 1911.

The X-frame is machined at Wilson Combat from T6-7075 aluminum and accepts a high capacity magazine with a grip that is smaller in circumference than a standard 1911 while retaining traditional 1911 controls.

The EDC X9 15-round, double column magazine was developed jointly with Mec-Gar, industry leaders in double column magazine design.

“The EDC X9 has been the most extensive design and development project Wilson Combat has undertaken in our 40-year history and it reflects what the company has become today from our humble beginnings as a one man gunsmithing shop.”
said Bill Wilson, CEO of Wilson Combat.

The screwless X-frame design uses hammer spring tension to keep the aggressive traction Wilson/VZ G-10 starburst pattern grips securely in place.

The result is a highly concealable, high capacity pistol frame that easily disassembles for grip/backstrap removal or routine cleaning with a ⅛” pin punch.

The EDC X9 slide assembly is from our single stack EDC 9 pistol with Wilson Combat’s ERS “Enhanced Reliability System” for 9mm 1911’s. The ERS is tailored to the varying power level of 9mm ammunition and maintains impressive reliability in all conditions, even when heavily fouled and low on lubrication.

Other features include a Tri-Top slide profile with user-replaceable front sight, single lug tapered cone match-grade 1911 barrel, rear Tactical Adjustable Battlesight and a rugged, user-serviceable external extractor.

“During my extensive shooting of the Wilson Combat EDC X9 during development and final testing I have been very impressed with its functional reliability beginning all the way back to some of the early prototypes, this tells me the overall design is inherently very sound and I applaud our engineers and pistolsmiths that worked so hard on this project.” said Bill Wilson, CEO of Wilson Combat.

The ergonomic design of the X-frame in conjunction with your choice of small or large backstrap and small, medium or long trigger pad can be tailored to fit all hand sizes comfortably.

The Wilson Combat EDC X9 front and back strap are machined with the Wilson Combat X-Tac tread pattern that provides a tactile but non-abrasive grip in all shooting conditions. The EDC X9 will fit the majority of holsters on the market designed for 4” or 4.25” 1911 pistols and is offered with or without an accessory rail.

Thoroughly tested by our team of designers, champion shooters and external industry experts, the Wilson Combat EDC X9 offers discriminating shooters 1911 match-grade accuracy, superior ergonomics and concealability combined with modern service pistol capacity and reliability.

With a base price of $2895, the Wilson Combat EDC X9 is available for pre-order now online.

    1. While the price point isn’t for everyone, the EDC X9 is a fabulous pistol. I opted for the railed version over the non-railed version and am very pleased. Was it worth $2800? To me, it was. But I prefer not to tell people how to spend their money. What I failed to take into consideration was the challenges that were going to come with finding a holster for the railed model. For the longest time, the only holster option I could find were those made by Wilson themselves. I finally found a few other options, and ultimately bought a nice OWB/IWB model from here: http://www.gunnersalley.com/wilson-combat-edc-x9-holsters/. Although I don’t carry the EDC every day, I really like the holster. Would I but another EDC? At this price, one per lifetime is all I’m willing to spend.

    2. Nice, but that price point is ridiculous. Also heard that the stock front site is a little on the large side. For the price I’d want all the bases covered without having to think about upgrades. Of course, the counter argument is that this is designed for shorter range encounters.

    3. re: wilson combat warranty

      they didn’t get to be wilson combat by not weaseling out of standing behind their product. it’s pretty simple. it’s like buying a filson wool jacket …. nothing but the best. simple as that.

      1. Bill Wilson will releasing a new version of the Bren 10 in 2018. In keeping with tradition this pistol will be shipped without a magazine

    4. In the past month, I think I’ve seen more articles, press releases and news items on my gun blogs on Wilson Combat items than in the conventional MSM on the Kardashians.

      Wilson makes a great product, and I’m sure that there is a market for an aluminum framed high cost 9mm that starts at close to $3k. After all, that is just about 2x the average Hi Power these days, and gives you custom features. I wonder aloud how many of these will actually be in someone’s holster on a daily basis instead of the safe though?

      I went to the Wilson site and found an interesting item: “NO WRITTEN WARRANTY: Due to the complexities of complying with the Federal warranty law, Wilson’s Gun Shop, Inc. does not offer a written warranty. We continue to stand behind our products and services, and to care for our customers, but we cannot make guarantees or warranties of any kind. This general statement of policies and disclaimers is effective July 1, 1985, and no prior statements or promises shall be of any effect for transactions after July 1, 1985.”

      I’d guess that they are just doing that due to some lawyer’s advice, but I’d prefer to buy from someone who warranties their product.

      1. Wilson does stand behind their product and they do carry a lifetime guarantee against defect. If you have an earlier Wilson with a MIM part that cracks, they will fix it. But really, their MIM parts have not cracked even after tens of thousands of rounds.

      2. It is only devalued paper with handsome pictures on it. What the heck, Christmas is coming up. A guy may as well get something he likes.
