Wilson Combat has just released a first look video at their all new 9mm that “takes the 1911 platform to a whole new level.”
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 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.
