Model discontinued 4/30/2024

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 new, optional X9 aluminum magwell will enable fast reloads in a tactical or competition situation and extends the grip for shooters with large hands.

  • EDC X9 3.25" Subcompact

    The Wilson Combat EDC X9 9mm defensive handgun is now available with a 3.25" subcompact barrel and slide assembly. This rendition of the EDC X9 is a very fast-handling defensive carry gun.

    The hand-fitted 3.25" stainless-steel barrel design has the same match-grade accuracy potential as the larger EDC X9 handguns and is painstakingly tuned by our gunsmiths for flawless reliability with a wide variety of target and defensive ammunition.

    The 3.25" subcompact slide assembly is tailored to the varying power level of 9mm ammunition and maintains impressive reliability in all conditions, even when heavily fouled and low on lubrication. Other features include a Tri-Top slide profile with user-replaceable front sight, single lug tapered cone match-grade 1911 barrel, rear Tactical Concealment Battlesight, and a rugged, user-replaceable extractor.

    The X-frame is a 15-round, 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 EDC X9 15 and 18-round, double-column magazines were developed jointly with Mec-Gar, industry leaders in double column magazine design.

    The screwless X-frame design uses hammer spring tension to keep the aggressive traction Wilson/VZ G-10 starburst pattern grips securely in place. The result is a highly concealable, high-capacity pistol frame that completely disassembles for cleaning with only a single punch without screws or frame bushings and a more natural, oval grip shape. 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 X9 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 X9 3.25" will fit the majority of holsters on the market designed for subcompact 1911 pistols and is offered with or without an accessory rail.

    Thoroughly tested by our team of designers, champion shooters, and external industry experts, the Wilson Combat EDC X9 offers discriminating shooters 1911 match-grade accuracy, superior ergonomics, and concealability combined with modern service pistol capacity and reliability.

  • About the X-Frame and Enhanced Reliability System

    The X-Frame

    Designed by Bill Wilson and Wilson Combat engineers, the X-frame is a 15-round, 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 EDC X9 15-round, double column magazine was developed jointly with Mec-Gar, industry leaders in double column magazine design.

    The screwless X-frame design uses hammer spring tension to keep the aggressive traction Wilson/VZ G-10 starburst pattern grips securely in place. The result is a highly concealable, high capacity pistol frame that easily disassembles for grip/back strap removal or routine cleaning with a ⅛” pin punch.

    "The EDC X9 has been the most extensive design and development project Wilson Combat has undertaken in our 40-year history and it reflects what the company has become today from our humble beginnings as a one man gunsmithing shop."
    - Bill Wilson, CEO of Wilson Combat.

    The Enhanced Reliability System

    The EDC X9 slide assembly is from our single stack EDC 9 pistol with Wilson Combat’s ERS "Enhanced Reliability System" for 9mm 1911’s. The ERS is tailored to the varying power level of 9mm ammunition and maintains impressive reliability in all conditions, even when heavily fouled and low on lubrication. Other features include a Tri-Top slide profile with user-replaceable front sight, single lug tapered cone match-grade 1911 barrel, rear Tactical Adjustable Battlesight and a rugged, user-serviceable external extractor.

    "During my extensive shooting of the EDC X9 during development and final testing I have been very impressed with its functional reliability beginning all the way back to some of the early prototypes, this tells me the overall design is inherently very sound and I applaud our engineers and pistol smiths that worked so hard on this project."
    - Bill Wilson, CEO of Wilson Combat.
