Wilson Combat has released the longer, 5″ barrelled version of their EDC X9 pistol. The new handgun is called EDC X9L. Just like its shorter barreled sibling, the EDC X9L is also chambered in 9x19mm and feeds from the same double stack 15-round magazines. The below-embedded animated image shows the differences between these two pistols.
The frame of Wilson Combat EDC X9L pistol is machined out of 7075-T6 aluminum. It features the distinctive X-TAC scaled up checkering pattern on the backstrap and frontstrap of the grip. The black G10 grips are engraved with the starburst pattern and come with embedded pewter medallions that bear the company’s logo. These new pistols can be ordered either with a smooth classic dust cover portion of the frame or one with an accessory rail as shown in the images of this article. The enlarged and flared magazine well is an optional part. The hammer, thumb safety and magazine release button of this pistol are from the company’s Bullet Proof series of enhanced 1911 parts. The EDC X9L pistol has no grip safety.
The stainless steel slide features an external extractor and X-TAC rear and front serrations. It also comes with an adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight. The top and rear surfaces of the slide are serrated. The 5″ barrel has fluted chamber area and flush-cut crowned muzzle. The company advertises a 3.5-4.5 lb trigger pull weight and guarantees that the pistol will be capable of printing 1″ groups at 25 yards. The empty weight of the pistol is 32.4 oz.
The starting price of the Wilson Combat EDC X9L pistol is $2,995. The price is identical both for the smooth and railed frame options. These pistols ship with two 15-round magazines.
