Wilson Combat EDC X9 Model

Bill Wilson is probably the closest thing to a Jedi Master when it comes to 1911s these days and his Wilson Combat shop in Arkansas a little while ago came up with what they call the X-frame. The fortune cookie version is the X-frame is a 15-round 9mm 1911 frame similar in size to a traditional compact, single-stack 1911.

Machined from T6-7075 aluminum it has double the capacity of a standard 1911 with a grip that is freakily 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.

Wilson Combat’s newest X-frame model is the EDC X9, a 15+1 9mm defensive handgun with a 3.25-inch subcompact barrel and slide assembly. Standard features include a Tri-Top slide profile with user-replaceable front sight, single lug tapered cone match-grade 1911 barrel, rear Tactical Concealment Battlesight, G-10 starburst pattern grips, and a rugged, user-replaceable extractor.

MSRP is $3,145. Oof.
