I have one of the early EDC X9’s. Does anyone else’s have a scratch at the rear of the trigger like in the attached photo? I asked Wilson and they say this is “normal”, and is caused by the shoe rubbing against the frame, but it’s hard to believe Wilson would design something this way. Obviously this is purely cosmetic and doesn’t matter, but just curious.

Mine has more scratches on it. Totally normal with any 1911 or 1911ish gun.

I have 12 Wilsons, all have the wear marks on the trigger, it is completely normal. You will not find a 1911 with out the marks.

Scratches, I look at as character. as long as my EDC X9 goes bang when I pull the trigger, I don’t care about a few scratches

Everyone seems to want a trigger with no play and then when they get one bitch about scratches. You can't have it both ways.

DubfromGa 03-21-2020 07:04 PM

OMG.......that gun is trashed.

Ruined.

I'd advise to let one of us take that unsightly monster off your hands.

Mine doesn’t have any scratch marks on the trigger (750 rounds). Most every used EDC X9 I have seen has worse scratches on the trigger than yours.

I logged into gunbroker and searched used EDC X9. There are 4. I‘m using my phone to view the photos and it appears 3 of those 4 used EDC X9’s have worse scratches on the trigger than yours.

I’d say it’s completely normal. I’d wouldn’t worry at all about it. I like to call marks like that “Character” marks. It just shows that the gun has been fired. I actually like stuff like that.

Yup,......mine too.

Some parts of a 1911 (or similar gun), certainly including an AT-finished trigger, will show evidence of the effects of friction and/or wear. It's inevitable with use, sometimes even inevitable from the relative minimal use incurred during Wilson's extensive test-firing of each gun... just to make sure everything is in order.

Always remember the "Combat" in Wilson Combat's name means these are combat-ready guns:rock:, even though very few buyers are planning to go on combat missions. If they were built for aesthetic display purposes, they would not be put through the Shop's extensive test-firing routine.

Normal. Mine are worse. It’s a tool.

Shoot it and you will have some more. Nothing at all to worry about. Enjoy that X9.

I wish more people shot there Wilson's.

Striker2237 03-21-2020 09:54 PM

Mine is worn silver, no black left in the area that moves. Keep using it

This is from a man that shoots the crap out of his Wilson's, I love it.

Grandpas50AE 03-22-2020 08:32 AM

Yep, perfectly normal. The trigger finger movement is not executed by human beings in exactly the same movement, straight back with no lateral movement, each and every time. There has to be some clearance in the trigger/frame interface to allow free movement of the trigger assembly to ensure trouble free trigger manipulation, so some side-to-side movement of the trigger will occur, causing some finish wear on the sides of the trigger.

Carry it a lot, shoot it even more and it will loo like this.

Everyone should be so lucky.

TRSOtto 03-22-2020 03:20 PM

After every shooting session, I remove my trigger and send it back to Wilson for refinishing.

Nothing better than a well loved gun. :rock:

I remember when I got my very first 1911 less than a year ago (wasn't a Wilson). Very soon after I began seeing those little scratch marks and rub marks. More on one side than the other. I thought it was my fault and my lack of proper trigger control. First thing I did was get with a very experienced instructor to take lessons and asked him about them. His response was "don't worry about it". I stopped worrying about them and now after 3000 rnds through that particular one, wow the trigger looks like it's been through WWI and II. That particular pistol is a Sig We The People and is made to look old. The trigger is by far the worse looking item.

That is just normal Wear

SG29736 03-24-2020 03:29 PM

I'm all for inspecting a new gun and finding any problems early to expedite neccessary repairs. But, that has to be the smallest visible imperfection that I've seen someone be concerned about.

tightloops 03-24-2020 04:01 PM

With a little elbow grease, you can get rid of that unsightly black on your trigger!

Red-5 03-24-2020 04:22 PM

Heck, mine came that way just from factory testing.

First world problems.
