As expected, the EDC X9 3.25” handgun is designed like a 1911 pistol which Wilson Combat is very much well known to make. As it is an X9, it is chambered in the 9mm round and as the company claims, it is a very fast handling pistol for defensive carry.  It still retains the 15-round magazine capacity and comes with two such magazines as part of the package. With the optional magwell, it will be able to use an 18-round magazine.

The design of the handgun is made for defensive shooting, allowing the shooter to have a firm grip of the pistol while under stress brought about a defensive situation with the X-TAC front and rear slide serrations whilst the grip feature Black G10 Aggressive Starburst Grips with Pewter Medallions. Speaking of the slide, it has the most advanced black DLC or Diamond-Like Carbon with chromium and tungsten underlayers that should wear out longer.

The Wilson Combat EDC X9 3.25” is not exactly something that you will handout out credit card in heartbeat. It costs US $3,145 which would make you think twice and with the Ambidextrous Thumb Safety it will be US$3,195 which will make you think even harder.

Too bad we’re not seeing much Wilson Combat pistols nowadays. This is one that we would want to have made for airsoft use.

Introducing the Wilson Combat EDC X9 3.25" High Capacity 9mm Defensive Handgun

The Superior Choice For Everyday Carry

The Wilson Combat  EDC X9 9mm defensive handgun is now available with a 3.25” subcompact barrel and slide assembly.  This rendition of the EDC X9 is a very fast-handling defensive carry gun.

The hand-fitted 3.25” stainless-steel barrel design has the same match-grade accuracy potential as the larger EDC X9 handguns and is painstakingly tuned by our gunsmiths for flawless reliability with a wide variety of target and defensive ammunition. The stainless steel slide wears the most advanced black DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) physical vapor deposition finish available with chromium and tungsten underlayers for long-lasting corrosion and abrasion resistance.

The 3.25” subcompact slide assembly 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 Concealment Battlesight, and a rugged, user-replaceable extractor.

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 and 18-round, double-column magazines were developed jointly with Mec-Gar, industry leaders in double column magazine design.

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 completely disassembles for cleaning with only a single punch without screws or frame bushings and a more natural, oval grip shape. The ergonomic design of the X-frame grip in conjunction with an enlarged trigger guard window and your choice of radiused trigger pad length fits all hand sizes comfortably and improves recoil control.  The EDC X9 front and back strap are machined with the Wilson Combat X-Tac tread pattern that provides a comfortable but tactile grip in all shooting conditions.

The EDC X9 3.25” will fit the majority of holsters on the market designed for subcompact 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.
