The EDC X9L design combines the accuracy, ergonomics and trigger pull of the classic 1911 design with enhanced reliability, and high capacity performance. This one-inch longer barrel version gives you an extended sight radius to match your standard 1911.

The EDC X9L 5 slide assembly and the match-grade, bushing-style barrel is tailored to the varying power level of 9mm ammunition and maintains impressive reliability even when heavily fouled and low on lubrication. Other slide features include a Tri-Top slide profile with a user-replaceable front sight, rear Tactical Adjustable Battlesight, and a rugged, user-serviceable external extractor.

The Wilson Combat X-frame is a high capacity 9mm 1911 frame that is similar in size to a traditional compact, single stack 1911. The X-frame is machined at Wilson Combat from T6-7075 aluminum and accepts a high capacity magazine with a grip that is smaller in circumference than a standard 1911 while retaining traditional 1911 controls.

The ergonomic design of the X-frame grip in conjunction with an enlarged trigger guard window and your choice of radiused trigger pad length fits all hand sizes comfortably and improves recoil control. The EDC X9L front and back strap are machined with the Wilson Combat X-Tac tread pattern that provides a comfortable but tactile grip in all shooting conditions. The EDC X9L will fit the majority of leather holsters on the market designed for 5 1911 pistols and is offered with or without an accessory rail.

The Wilson Combat EDC X9L 5 offers 1911-style match-grade accuracy and superior ergonomics combined with modern service pistol capacity and reliability.

Thoroughly tested by our team of designers, champion shooters and external industry experts, the Wilson Combat EDC X9L offers discriminating shooters 1911 match-grade accuracy, superior ergonomics and concealability combined with modern service pistol capacity and reliability.
