Anybody seen an EDC X-9 that looked like this?

They are calling it a Black and White. Very interesting to say the least.

I love it and have held one but was concerned about the durability of the faux finish?

Even better than the photos in my estimation. I can't testify to the durability as it is new but the Combat Tough b/w is a $150 upcharge and the build and delivery was about 2 weeks longer than 2 others I ordered at the same time. That may have been additional finish time or the fact that it was only one without the rail frame and I think that WC has been batching the frame styles. This week I saw briefly an EDC X9 with Combat Tough finish in FDE or Bronze applied in a USA Flag Motif. Nice. So there is obviously room to play creatively with individual looks. Bottom line the EDC X9 is a fabulous shooting EDC pistol and more fun at the range than any other I have shot including my other WC pieces. Indeed I usually run out of ammo before I really want to stop. I find no reason so far to worry about the worn finish looking worn....Or being worn. Check with Mandy Bachman as she competes with this finish on hers shooting for the Wilson Combat Team. Hers was the first one I had seem with this finish.

Pretty cheesy looking IMHO.

Kind of like a gold plated 1911.

Pretty attractive looking actually. I know someone who has a Combat Tough finish and competes frequently with it (not that same color scheme) and doesn't have any durability issues.

The Combat Tough has a lot more AT on it that a standard gun, It is a three step process, pretty neat and VERY durable

slammer is correct, both spellings are right.

nice gun, looks very close to mine; mine is all grey as well, but has the light rail and black cherry grips.

Traditionally in the US gray is the color, Grey is a name.

But anyway, like the black & white.

I haven't figured out this trend of high end guns with paint jobs that make them look like they were dragged behind a tractor.

For me the thinking on mine was a concealed carry piece. If the shirt or jacket exposed it you would see dark and possible not notice. Though I like the contrast on that, it would stick out like a sore thumb and defeat my intended purpose. Exposed carry it would look different and I see the appeal.

I'm just not a fan of faux "aged" finishes.

If you want a gun to look like it's been carried for a decade.....then carry it for a decade.

Otherwise, it just looks like you're trying too hard to be something you're not.
