NRA Gun of the Week: Wilson Combat EDC X9 Pistol

Blending the characteristics of a competition-grade pistol with the demands of today’s concealed-carry practitioners, Wilson Combat offers its EDC X9 to the masses. It is a feature-rich, single-action semi-automatic pistol chambered for 9 mm Luger, with a capacity for 15 cartridges. To enhance capacity and modularity while reducing size and weight, the EDC X9 is built on Wilson’s aluminum X-frame design. As such, the pistol with steel slide and 4” bull barrel weighs just 29 ozs. empty. Bill Wilson’s latest creation is packed with contemporary styling—aggressive slide serrations and texturing found within the G-10 stocks, both front- and backstraps make the EDC X9 a functional looker. And if you prefer the gun to include features not seen here, Wilson Combat can accommodate. To learn more about the Wilson Combat EDC X9, check out our latest NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by Joe Kurtenbach.
