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. For more information on the EDC X9, pick up a copy of the May/June 2017 issue of Combat Handguns magazine. To subscribe, please visit
