The five-star Wilson Combat EDC X9 is one of my two everyday carry guns. It’s not as pretty as the one in Wilson Combat’s 40th Anniversary boxed set (above). My all-black double-stack gat is worn around the edges, thanks to a too-narrow Commander-sized .45 caliber 1911 holster (since replaced by a custom Hell-Bent Holsters‘ holster). And it doesn’t have the words “40 years of innovation” on the slide. Which is just as well as . . .
I’m 58-years-old. But enough about me . . .
The Wilson Combat 40th Anniversary boxed set includes an EDC X9-themed locking folder labelled “40 Years of Cutting Edge” — ’cause it’s made by Hogue and WC only started making/commissioning knives in the last decade.
The set also features a full-size Supergrade .45 labelled “40 Years of tradition.”
One thing the webpage doesn’t include: the price. If you have to ask you can’t afford it? Well I can’t and I asked. “You’ll have to talk to your dealer,” the nice man at WC answered. “We didn’t put a price on ’em.”
My dealer’s closed for Christmas. So I found a boxed set on gunbroker.com going for $11,025. I assume Wilson’s two guns, knife and coins combination retails for $11k. So now you know.
