First Look: A Breakdown of Wilson Combat’s EDC X9 1911 Pistol

Wilson Combat's EDC X9 elevates the 1911 design to a decidedly higher level by going down a proven path of reliability using design features that work.

Wilson Combat has officially announced its EDC X9 pistol and Athlon Outdoors has the exclusive.

Wilson Combat’s EDC X9 project started in March 2015 and culminated in early 2017 after three working prototypes were made and thousands of rounds were sent downrange by multiple shooters. And the resulting pistol embodies Bill Wilson’s approach to gun-making, which attends to all the large and small details — both functional and aesthetic — needed to produce a memorable pistol.

Watch the video above for an exclusive look at the all-new 1911.

The pistol has an MSRP of $2,895.
