Staccato P vs EDC X9

Anyone have both a Staccato P and a Wilson Combat EDC X9 ?

How do they compare?

If you could only have one, which would it be?

I have an EDC X9, but I'm not liking the grip anymore. I'm not sure if its the grip thickness or just that I'm used to 1911 grips. I really prefer holding a 1911.

Thinking of maybe getting a Staccato P instead.

There are a couple threads on this on various forums. Unless your a die hard Wilson fan it seems the STI wins out. The biggest telling factor for me was the amount of EDC-X9ís on the resale market compared to the DVC-Cís. I was going to pick up a X9 to see what all the hoopla was about. After seeing so many hit the used market and at really good prices it gave me a little concern. After looking at the X9 further Iíll stick with my STI true 1911 form factor ergonomics vs the 1911 ďinspiredĒ ergonomics of the X9ís.

Also there was a recent thread comparing a Wilson Supergrade to a DVC 3 Gun with the nod to the DVC.

My DVC-C is heads a tails above the pile of crap EDC x9 that I had, fit, finish and accuracy put the Wilson to shame.

How does the STI grip feel in comparison to an EDC X9 ?

Why did you think the EDC X9 is a pile of crap?

I had an EDCX9 and thought it was a very nice, well made pistol. I shot 1700 rounds through it without any problems except that it was harder for me to shoot accurately than my other pistols. I use the word accurate loosely because I'm just an average shooter. I changed the backstrap from small to large and didn't like that so went back to the small one. I hated to sell it because it is a fine pistol and if you wanted, would make a nice but expensive carry gun.

So I recently purchased a STI Staccato P Host and couldn't be happier. It is well made, has a great trigger and is much easier to shoot where I am aiming even without the SRO. I personally think it is to heavy to carry but that is not what I bought it for.

I forgot to mention that I prefer the size and shape of the grip on the Staccato P. I have large hands so the STI just fits me better.
If I was looking for a multipurpose gun, one I could take to the range and carry, I would consider the STI DVC Carry.
Hope this helps.

I have an X9 and it is a fine pistol. It has 1911ish trigger and controls but it ain’t a 1911.
I accept it for what it is. A guality 9mm Carry gun. It is very accurate and carry’s like it not even there. But again, it’s not a 1911.

I also have an STI FS Hawk and it’s a great range gun, and I love to shoot it but I wouldn’t carry it.

Different tools for different tasks.
I am however intrigued by the new STI guns coming out.
I may just have to get one. I would prefer the 4” Tactical over the Stacatto P...

I like the edcx9 over the Sti mainly for ccw. They are both awesome but the x9 just works best for me.

I donít have it but Iím comparing the staacato p my brother owns. I have put a 1000-1500 round thru it and I love it. I even carried it a few times for long periods. But for me personally the x9 just feels better , works better for me. Also feels like whatís it worth.

With that said I do custom work on polymer guns such as Glocks and m&ps and want to get a staacato c and p so I can modify the frames with my signature work. @flt_llc on the gram.

I think a more even comparison would be the EDC-X9 vs the DVC-C. More similar guns.

I have a Staccato P Host on the way.
I really wanted the DVC P but couldn’t see why it’s $1000 more than the Staccato P or $500 more than the Staccato P host.
And already have a railed. X9 so it should prove tb a fair comparison.
That being said I carry the X9 and as a carry gun, and I shoot it well.
I doubt the Staccato P will prove better in that roll.
We will see.

Well then.
I finally got a Staccato P DUO.
Wow. what a gun. It handles very well at the range.
It has a great trigger and good ergonomics.
I went with the Holosun 503C optic.
Biggest down side with the Staccato P DUO is finding a holster. ***!
I ended up having to order a custom holster,
so it will be a couple of weeks before I can carry the thing.
As of now, I'm liking the STI over the EDC X9 at the range,
but at this point, until the holster gets here, I'm still carrying the X9.

Sorry I missed this,

Sloppy slide fit
Small back strap, too small
Large back strap, felt bulky and too big
Crappy Armor Tough, 15-20 times in the holster it was already worn
20 yard accuracy was 3-4Ē with the best load I could find.
Resale is a joke

My DVC-C locks up like a vault, zero slide play
Perfect grip size for me
20 yard groups are 3/4Ē with a 124gr GDHP
DLC is amazing.

STI’s are very good guns and I won’t say anything against them other than they really don’t speak to me. My Wilson’s do. Have not had any issues at all with my EDC X9 in over 5,000 rounds.

Will my X9 shoot as tight of a group as my PII at 25 yards? Not quite in my hands but it is far more accurate than is needed in an EDC. I have no issues at all with it for fit, accuracy, reliability and aesthetics.

I have one on order. Looking for it to be in my hands late summer. This will more than likely be my new EDC gun. I have handled one, but have not shot one yet. Really looking forward to getting it!!

When the EDC X9 was introduced I wanted one to fill the need of a medium sized carry pistol that held more rounds than a 9mm 1911 commander.

The X9 was not available in the local gun stores and I hesitated to spend the money and wait 18 months for a pistol I had not handled. I posted my thoughts and the Wilson rep suggested I order a plastic X9 called the "blue gun" to see if it fit me. I did. It was great advice and saved me a bunch of time and money. I have large hands and a large frame. The X9 was too small for what I was looking for. I own two Wilson 1911's and shoot them often. I am not a Wilson basher.

The Staccato P is what I was looking for. High capacity 9MM 1911. I own the standard one and have a 5 inch ordered. I will buy a DUO next. I am sold on their product. I would buy a DVC Carry if I could justify the money. I find the Staccato P to be the same pistol as a DVC carry only cheaper.

Just my thoughts.

Not to mention longer, taller and heavier, lol. Of course, with larger hands and frame that wouldn't be an issue.

I love the DVC-C for carry. It's basically like a G19 and a 1911 Commander had a baby that got the best of both parents' genes.

The Stac P DUO is on my list, too. Or... does anyone know if there are any reputable companies that will mill a Tactical for an RMR?
