NRA Gun Gear of the Week: Wilson Combat EDC X9 Pistol

posted on May 27, 2018

As the firearm market as a whole shifts more and more toward options for concealed carry and personal defense, renowned custom gun maker Wilson Combat saw the need to expand its handgun offerings beyond its highly regarded M1911-style pistols. Unquestionably, double-stack semi-automatics of compact/mid-size proportions and chambered in 9 mm Luger are the order of the day, so Wilson Combat founder Bill Wilson set out to develop an original design based on his experience and preferences. The result is the EDC X9, a pistol that outwardly looks and handles like a 1911, but actually takes cues from the Browning BDM and Astra A70, offering a truly original—and frankly fantastic—take on what a carry gun should be. In this week's NRA Gun Gear video, Joe Kurtenbach takes a closer look at the Wilson Combat EDC X9.
