First Look: Wilson Combat Unveils EDC X9 1911 Pistol

Wilson Combat's EDC X9 project began in March 2015 and culminated in early 2017 after three working prototypes were made and thousands of rounds were fired.

Bill Wilson may have retired from running the daily operations at the company he founded in 1977, but there’s no doubt that he continues to help drive Wilson Combat’s research and development with several new firearms released in just the last year. The EDC X9 is unquestionably the most ambitious of the lot because it offers a fresh design that significantly departs from the 1911s that Wilson Combat and other competitive manufacturers now produce.

Check out the exclusive first look video above.

The pistol has an MSRP of $2,895.
