EDC X9L finally came in!

Unfortunately have to wait 10 days until
I can take it home and paid the state for doing nothing. Also got an extra set of black grips with black medallions.

It’s the Wilson Flat trigger option for the edc x9 and x9L. It’s the only flat trigger option they have.

Interesting on that trigger; nice gun - even if you do have to wait 10 days. I really feel for you guys that do; it should not be so if the USSC did their job properly. Alas, a different topic for another day in a different sub-forum though. Enjoy your new Wilson when the 10 days are up, and let us know how it performs for you.

Definitely going to put a lot of rounds through this gun. First outing will be a USPSA competition the week I get it. Agreed on the topic for another sub-forum.

I didn't like the grip color at first sight but I realized now its a nice combo and glad I didn't change the grips. Once you get some rounds thru her - you will love it.

Yeah I wasn’t sure how I’d like the cherry grips so I got an extra set of black with black medallions. I think I like both anyway.

Just shot about 100 rounds to adjust the rear sight if needed. It’s such a light gun compared to my all steel Wilson’s. I was expecting more snap but it’s a pretty flat shooting gun. Hardly any recoil at all.

Would you say it’s equivalent to a government size 9mm in steel?

My only government size steel 1911 is in 45 so harder to compare. My professional edc 9 in all steel is probably the closest comparison.

Ah gotcha. Guessing the EDC 9 and EDC X9L have the same recoil impulse?

They feel a little different but my edc 9 has a flgr and flatwire setup and the X9L has a conventional setup and no flgr.

Shot a competition with it yesterday, only issue was on the last stage and the shot of the stage I had a failure to fire. Not sure if it was a light primer strike or a bad round. Took a picture of the round. Guns going to Wilson due to me accidentally over adjusting the rear sight and the little metal ball came out.

Great looking gun. I have to chime in with a "Like" on the trigger too. Also interested in the fully adjustable rear sight, because I like fully adjustable rear sights.

How can you over adjust the rear sight elevation screw - the rear sight only will lift so far. The ball and wheel should stay in place unless you removed the sight from the base. I worked on a spare rear sight that I purchased and squared the notch - didn't like the TAB picture.
