I wonder if this is smaller or bigger than my CZ rami?

Smaller I believe. There's comparison images to the Glock 26, 43 and 365 on the website.

Been a while since I've handled a RAMI so I don't recall how exactly it stacks up to the 26.

This could end up being a bigger winner than the EDC X9.

I am definitely going to acquire one. The subcompact size seems to be a perfect replacement for my P365 pocket carry. Sometimes, I just cannot carry my EDCx9 and must rely on pocket carry and this new pistol means the same manual of arms and compatible magazines. Also, the manual safety offers an extra level of confidence for me for deep concealment like pocket carry.

I'm sure it will be at least as easy to shoot as a P938, P365, Kimber Micro 9, Ruger LCP, NAA .32 all of which I have owned, carried and shot over the years.

I'm in.

Looking at the P365 Pic, it looks more closely at the P365XL, which I got.

wow, if it's going to be that size, I may have to take a look at it.

I got both the P365 and P365XL. Amazing. I'm definitely interested.

Got the email and I was like Oh Man!! Just when I thought the P365 was the end of my search for the perfect CCW then Wilson Combat pulls this out of their magic hat. Can not let the wife see this pistol. It will cost me double since she will want one also.

That could be a spot-on prediction...America loves small guns it seems...They have their place even for me (as I posted above), but meh, it is such a small "place" plastic-fantastics work just fine for my application and require virtually zero-maintenance. Grease it once a year and it is good to go. Probably get away with greasing it only once in a lifetime and it would still work just fine.

At any rate, I do look forward to the range reports when the X9s is delivered, looks like Striker may be one of the first recipients, - that is going to be an interesting range report given he demands so much from his guns (as he should of course). Of course, no one delivers on such a consistent basis as Wilson Combat, no one, so it will be a good "match-up", lets see what happens.

I’m going to take a wait and see approach to it. While I find myself pocket carrying my G43 quite often in the summer I still prefer something larger. This size would have been great in the EXPERIOR line IMHO. I am also interested in the range reports and people’s actual impressions of the pistol

I was a bit surprised WC didnt have a video or 2 of it at the range. I agree, Striker will no doubt put it through its paces. Based on its dimensions and comparisons to the popular poly guns, if the x9s is what its projected to be, theres enough WC brand loyalty to make it a success. I was all in on the 1st x9 until we got limited and then i went in a different direction. I do like this x9s alot, but id like to hold and shoot one first. How did they keep it as slim as a G43 still being a double stack?

Yep if you look closer at the specs the X9S is closer to the 365 XL in size. I have the standard 365 and it is smaller. It would be nice to hear a shooting comparison between the two. I might consider the X9S because of the all metal frame. The 365 shoots well for me but it is snappy to shoot particularly with + P ammo.

I’m wondering how it would work for pocket carry.

I think the mag capacity will make it too heavy for ankle carry
However I do have a slick ankle setup for an officers

The way I look at it, if I need a gun in a life and death situation I want it to be in the 4-5" size variety at least. I get that these 3"ers have their place, but for me that place would always be limited to a wet environment, whether out running/sweating, in a bathing-suite, or the shower, in which case a $400 plastic fantastic is much more apropos...Getting 1911's of the 3ish inch variety to run 100% is not the easiest thing to do btw, Bill W. has said that in the past himself. Granted, the X9s is not a 1911 per se and hopefully with the reliability enhancements it will do fine. But springs, and cleaning, oil, became even more important in these small sizes.

If we could carry here, and I wanted something super light and small for all around summer carry, I have a PPQ9 4" which also shoots as if it is a full size gun (even though it feels like so small). I wouldn't want anything smaller. Even my 4"+ Wilson carry-comp is a small, light, gun to me. I guess it is all relative. (I don't personally believe in pocket carry btw).

This is very appealing. Was not interested in getting the X9 or X9L, but this is a different story. Would really like to shoot one.

Not just that, but the Trigger on the P365, its horrible, compared to the my X9
So having a small form factor, gun the size of the P365XL, with the amazing trigger of the X9, it will be a win-win.

Don't forget the comp! (Or maybe we can save the comp-pic until someone complains the recoil is too much compared to the X9Long :-)).

I need to hold one of these. In my experiance with the 'mouse' guns (P385, P938, G43, G26, Hellcat) they all come up short, for me, in one area or another. I like the idea of a pocket, extra, deep concealed carry but not at the expense of not being proficient with it. Maybe this will be different, I hope so....

Ouch lol, I only complain so much because the X9 is commander sized and loses to a higher caliber gun in the same size class. It's weird since the grip is just barely large enough to bump it up in concealment class to have to compete against easier to control guns.

My situation as well. I've got big hands and I'm just not able to get enough fingers on a 365 or a 43 or any of the pocket 9's that the X9S is being compared to.

I'll need to hold one before I could commit to an order.

My comment wasn't aimed at you my Friend, wasn't aimed at anyone. Just having a little fun this AM.

Yea the grip is going to be challenging to you folks with large hands.

Oh and PS, lets hope WC didn't create a new class of limp-wristers on the forum with this small gun ;-).

I had this grand plan to order a customized lightweight 9mm Commander from WC

Now this little thing really makes me pause.
But honestly it’s two separate classes of gun
