Introducing the Wilson Combat EDC X9 High Capacity 9mm Defensive Handgun
The Superior Choice For Everyday Carry
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.
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 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 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.
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 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.

This is a beautifully made gun and after over 500 rounds not a single malfunction. I have small hands and ordered a short trigger and small backstrap. During shooting of rapid fire strings I had to regrip the gun and started dropping the magazine. Installed the large backstrap and now the gun stays solid in my grip with no magazine drops. No problem reaching the slide release or magazine release. Love this gun and it is an outstanding shooter.

Took my new EDC X9 for its first range trip today and was not disappointed. In fact, I was elated. It performed flawlessly, 100% reliable with all ammo, including 124 grain FMJ range ammunition, Black Hills 115 grain TAC-XP +P ammo, and 124 grain and 147 grain Federal HST ammo. The recoil is barely noticeable. The trigger is exceptional. The 15-round magazines are very easy to load. I opted for the small back strap and short trigger pad and that proved to be a perfect combination for me. The ergonomics are superb. Accuracy was very good, and I expect will get even better. The build quality appears to be outstanding. The only issue is the gold bead front sight. My range recently installed excellent LCD lighting, which makes fiber optic sights light up like Christmas trees. The gold bead was a bit difficult for me to pick up against the red bulls eye of my targets. I do have the green fiber optic sight if I choose to make the change. In any event, based on my observations and experience so far with my new EDC X9, it easily earns five ***** stars. It is a beautiful, extremely well-designed and well-crafted pistol.

Extremely impressed with the EDC X9!
I have spent almost 40 years in manufacturing and engineering and I decided to spend the price tag for the EDC X9 because everything looking like it was done top shelf and only top shelf. Just received it and am totally satisfied, the fit, finish, quality of components, balance, natural aim, feel, everything is at the elevated level I anticipated. The QC paperwork that comes with it, is impressive alone, when I saw how many checks and double checks Wilson has built into their system, it is no wonder I feel the satisfaction of ownership when holding a top example of a high quality product. This will most likely not be the only Wilson Combat I will ever own, now I desire more.

Received my EDC X9 this week - WOW!!!
I have owned Wilson Combat firearms for quite a while, both handguns and the AR platform and have loved them all, but Bill and his team have really hit it out of the park with the X9. The gun is only 5.5 oz. heavier than a G19 with the same capacity and has all the qualities and advantages of a premium custom 1911. Trigger is beautiful, gun is perfectly balanced and extremely reliable - perfect so far and I have taken it to the range every day since it arrived. Love this gun. It truly will be my EDC for the foreseeable future.
