Wilson Combat SFX9

Back in 2017, Wilson Combat unveiled its EDC-X9 double-stack 9 mm semi-automatic handgun, which was designed specifically with carry in mind. New for 2022, Wilson Combat has updated the EDC-X9 design into a new pistol, the SFX9. The biggest difference between the two pistols is the frame. On the SFX9, there are no separate grip panels. Instead the entire grip frame, including the grips, are machined from a solid block of 7075-T6 aluminum, hence the SFX9's full name of Solid Frame X9. 

Because the grip panels are integral with the grip frame, the frame's with is only 1.4" despite also accepting 15-round, double-stack magazines with an overall height of 5.25". The aluminum grip frame results in an unloaded weight of 29.3 ozs. The frame also features two Picatinny rail slots machined into the dust cover. For controls, the SFX9 is set up similar to a 1911, with the same basic controls in the usual location, except for a grip safety which is not included on the design. The trigger and hammer feature lightening cuts to their designs, with the trigger pull being single stage with 3.5- to 4.5-lbs. of pull.

The slide assembly remains similar to that of the EDC-X9, with 30 lines-per-inch serrations in the front and 40 line-per-inch serrations machined into the back of the slide. It is made from stainless steel that comes topped off with a black DLC finish. The slide also features an external extractor design and a heavy machine chamfer on the bottom. The barrel is 4" long, bringing the overall length to 7.4", and is made of stainless steel as well. It has several aesthetic features, including fluting on the chamber and barrel, along with a flush-cut reverse crown.

On top of the slide, the SFX9 comes with a concealment battlesight rear, and comes standard with a red fiber optic front sight, though the front sight can also be changed out for a green fiber optic, tritium or gold bead front sight as well.
