The EDC X9 is the latest pistol from Wilson Combat, a double stack 1911-pattern 9mm pistol designed principally as a carry pistol.

Also like a G19, the EDC X9 features a 15+1 capacity.

Additional features include:

  • Black G10 grips

    Wilson Combat/Bravo Company BCMGUNFIGHTER 1911

    Thursday, January 22nd, 2015


    The enhanced grip pattern of Wilson Combat’s X-TAC 1911 has become the standard with hard users who run the 1911 platform in extreme service environments. You can now get this unmatched grip security and styling in a special X-TAC model exclusive to Bravo Company MFG-The BCMGUNFIGHTER 1911.


    This outstanding tactical package retains the core features of the X-TAC and adds a tactical light rail and other select performance options that BCM’s experts demanded like the Bullet Proof One Piece Magwell, solid medium trigger and tritium front sight. Wilson’s renowned Armor-Tuff finish was chosen to offer a non-reflective and corrosion resistant finish that can stand up to the most severe global environments. In tandem with the BCMGUNFIGHTER/VZ G-10 grips, the frame’s X-tread pattern locks securely into the firing hand and reduces muzzle flip without snagging on clothes or cover garments.


    “Wilson Combat has a legendary history in manufacturing fighting 1911s, and serious hard-use guns are what BCM is all about. We are very excited to collaborate with Wilson on a special gun, built to our specifications with carefully chosen and battle ready options. BCM builds weapon systems that are manufactured to meet the unforgiving needs of law enforcement, military, security and peace keeping professionals in some of the most high stress environments and situations in the world. Forged from a gunfighter’s no-nonsense mindset, we believe the BCMGUNFIGHTER 1911 carries on this tradition in a fighting handgun.”
    – Paul Buffoni, President, Bravo Company MFG


    The newly announced Wilson Combat/Bravo Company BCMGUNFIGHTER 1911 is available exclusively through Bravo Company.

    Wilson Combat – Vickers Elite Glock Sights

    Friday, May 2nd, 2014


    The long awaited Wilson Combat Vickers Elite sights for Glock pistols have arrived. The rear Elite Battlesight has a .145″ wide, deep U-Notch for optimum sighting in low-light, dynamic range conditions. Snag-free, the sight’s shelf shape enables one-hand slide cycling or malfunction clearance. The rear sight comes with a non-reflective matte black parkerized finish.

    The Elite Snag Free Front Sight are .245″ tall, with a black parkerized finish. They come in Green Fiber, Red Fiber, and Tritium dot optics. Designed for use with all 9mm, .40, 357 and .45 GAP caliber Glocks.

    Prototype GLOCK Sights from Vickers Tactical

    Monday, December 9th, 2013

    As many of you know, Larry Vickers has a set of sights for the GLOCK coming through a collaboration with Wilson Combat. This is a prototype but the final production ones will be very simila; the hole at the bottom is for a tritium dot allowing for a dot on top of dot tritium sight picture. The rear sight is a “U”-shaped affair with scalloped sides. So far, LAV has made no mention of the front sight.

    Vickers Tactical GLOCK Sight by Wilson Combat

    According to LAV, GLOCK plastic sights go they have 4 issues:

    1) they are plastic so are easily marred

    2) the rear sight notch is too narrow for the front sight so there is very little to no light on either side of the front site

    3) the white u notch rear site draws your attention to the rear sight vs the front site

    4) with a proper sight picture the bottom 25% of the white dot on the front site is cut off so many shooters subconsciously elevate the front site in order to see a complete dot- thus shooting high

    Vickers feels that the fact that they are plastic is really the least of their problems. He commented, “They are simply poorly designed pistol sights – period.”


    Paul Howe Tactical Carbine from Wilson Combat

    Thursday, June 13th, 2013

    Wilson Combat builds some great guns, so I was very pleased to hear that they would be building a new signature carbine for Paul Howe. More specifically, MSG Paul Howe (USA, Ret), is a special operations veteran and served in the Battle of the Black Sea in Mogadishu, Somalia. Now, he runs CSAT, a well respected training company.


    The Howe carbine is offered only in 5.56mm as a stand alone or a more complete package that includes Paul’s preferred optic, the LeupoldVX-6 1-6×24 Firedot along with a VCAS and Streamlight.

    Right off the bat, you’ll notice the paint job. Wilson applies a Camouflage Armor-Tuff finish. They claim that this hand applied finish reduces the carbine’s IR signature and helps keep the rifle cooler.

    It incorporates a two-stage Wilson Combat TTU with heavier springs for a 4.5 pound trigger release. The Howe Tactical Carbine includes a Daniel Defense fixed front sight tower paired with his CSAT rear aperture flip up. Additionally, it relies on a Wilson peerless, match grade, 5.56 chambered stainless steel 14.7” barrel with deep lightening flutes and a permanently attached Accu-Tac flash hider for a 16″ overall length.


    “Were I to have the choice of only one gun, this is the gun it would be. I could do short, intermediate and long range work with this one rifle. It is like having one golf club to play the entire course”
    – Paul Howe


    Paul Howe Tactical Carbine Specifications:
    -Wilson Combat Recon SR 14.7” 1-8 twist fluted lightweight barrel
    -Two stage TTU with heavy mil-spec springs
    -Flip up rear BUS with CSAT aperture
