EDC-X9 FAQ Thread


FAQ info here

Wilson Combat EDC X9 FAQ-Please make a sticky

Is the EDC X9 magazine proprietary?
Yes, the EDC X9 magazine was co-developed with Mec-Gar of Italy and is proprietary to the EDC X9. This magazine will not fit or function in any other handgun. It has extreme feed reliability, holds 15 rounds, is numbered and black fluoropolymer coated. A 10-round magazine will be available soon. We hope to have various base pad options available after launch.

Is the EDC X9 front sight proprietary?
Yes, the EDC X9 front sight is proprietary and is designed to be user replaceable. We will offer a variety of front sights for customers to choose from after launch.

What ammunition is the EDC X9 rated for?
The EDC X9 will typically function with any quality 9mm Luger (9x19 Para) ammunition with a power factor (bullet weight X velocity) greater than 125,000. This includes most bulk loaded ammunition through +P rated ammunition. We do not recommend the use of +P+ ammunition or any other ammunition outside of SAAMI specifications. The EDC X9 is 100% feed reliable with a wide variety of hollow point ammunition.

EDC X9 Lubrication?
Even though the EDC X9’s X-Frame reduced rail design and Enhanced Reliability System is not as lubrication dependent as a typical 1911-style pistol, we still recommend lubrication of internal metal-metal contact surfaces. Proper lubrication of barrel locking surfaces and slide rails will enhance overall reliability and extend the service life of the pistol.

EDC X9 Spring Replacement?
The flatwire recoil spring lifespan of the X9 will exceed 10,000 rounds in our testing. The extractor spring has a similar service life. To retain drop safety we suggest changing the firing pin spring every 5000 rounds. The sear spring and magazine catch spring should never require replacement. The use of a SHOK-BUFF recoil buffer is recommended, but optional.

EDC X9 Unique Parts?
The EDC X9 has many parts in common with the 1911. The recoil spring, guide rod, spring plug, firing pin, firing pin stop, hammer, sear, disconnector, magazine catch spring, magazine catch lock and plunger spring will interchange with standard Wilson Combat 1911 parts. We plan to have a selection of EDC X9 specific replacement parts available for purchase after launch.

EDC X9 Holster Fit?
The EDC X9 will fit in most leather or kydex holsters designed for a 4” “compact” or 4.25” “Commander” 1911. The magazines will fit in pouches designed for the Beretta 90 series or Walther PPQ. The optional rail frame will handle most compact or full size handgun weapon lights on the market.

EDC X9 Grip fit?
The grips of the EDC X9 are proprietary and a joint venture with VZ grips. They are aggressively textured G-10 material and available in various colors. If you find the grips too coarse for your hands you can lightly polish the grips to your preferred feel with 320 or similar grit sandpaper.

EDC X9 Manufacture?
The EDC X9 and its parts have been 100% designed and the major parts are manufactured by Wilson Combat in our Berryville, AR facility. The frame is machined from billet 7075-T6 aluminum, the slide and barrel are 416R stainless steel. The G-10 grips are made by VZ grips.

What does EDC X9 mean?

Every Day Carry, Extra Capacity 9mm.

EDC X9 Features and Benefits

The EDC X9 has vetted reliability.
The EDC X9 has been extensively tested by a cadre of test shooters across the country. These shooters contributed to the testing and evaluation phase of the EDC X9 and shot thousands and thousands of rounds through prototype guns to thoroughly vet the design. Internal testing proved that the EDC X9 was extremely feed reliable with durability that meets or exceeds most modern service pistols. The 15 round Mec-Gar magazine is extremely reliable and designed for service use. We have had no magazine related failures in our testing.

The EDC X9 includes the Wilson Combat ERS “Enhanced Reliability System” for 1911 style handguns.

The "ERS" includes: Robust spring-loaded external extractor that improves extraction in all conditions with all types of ammunition; A match grade, fluted barrel with single lug geometry to reduce cycling friction, enhance slide velocity, and improve feed reliability; Removal of the frame rails around the mag opening to further reduce friction and promote function in adverse shooting environments; A low mass, Tri-Top slide profile for reduced muzzle flip and enhanced cycling; And a user-replaceable front sight and rugged new elevation adjustable Tactical Battlesight with click adjustments to easily adjust vertical point of impact.

The EDC X9 has a small, compact design with 1911 style controls and features.

The EDC X9 is smaller than comparable carry guns like the Glock 19, Commander, and Hi-Power with an extremely compact and ergonomic grip design.

No grip screws, bushings or two-piece frame allows minimum size and compact feel. The unitized X-Frame is rigid, robust and purpose-built to deliver a reliable high capacity 1911 style solution.

The EDC X9 has customizable fit.

The EDC X9 frame has two backstrap sizes available to customize the fit of the EDC X9 to your hand size. You can customize your EDC X9 based on your personal glove size.

The sizing below is accurate for most hands.

For a generic fit, most shooters can use the small backstrap / medium trigger acceptably well.

Small: small backstrap / short trigger
Medium: small backstrap / medium trigger
Large: large backstrap / medium trigger
X-Large: large backstrap / long trigger

The EDC X9 has a 1911 Heritage.

The trigger pull and layout is all 1911. The trigger feel and precise action are everything you have been used to with a fine, custom 1911 with various trigger lengths to fit different shooters hand sizes. The EDC X-9 is highly accurate and comparable to other Wilson Combat compact 1911 style handguns. We guarantee 1.5” groups at 25 yards with match grade ammunition.
