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.
The EDC X9 1911 pistol has been in the works since 2015. Two years later Wilson Combat formally annoucned the pistol’s release after three prototypes sent thousands of rounds downrange.
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.
Wilson Combat left this description on their website, “Designed by Bill Wilson and Wilson Combat engineers, and thoroughly tested by our team of designers, champion shooters and external industry experts, the EDC X9 offers discriminating shooters 1911 match-grade accuracy, superior ergonomics, and concealability with modern service pistol capacity and reliability. Making it the superior choice for everyday carry.”
The EDC X9 features a 4″ barrel and an interchangeable backstraps and trigger pads.
The nearly $2,900 price tag reminds us that quality doesn’t come cheap from Wilson Combat. The pistol is currently available for pre-order and should be on the shelves later this year.
