Wilson Combat has a winner on their hands. The gunmaker tells TTAG that their new $2985 EDC 9mm semi-automatic 1911-style pistol is back-ordered to January. As Wilson’s pushing out just 200 copies a month, I make that at least 1600 buyers who’ve ponied-up for the sleek carry gun, pretty much sight unseen.
Wilson Combat’s Guy Joubert’s tour through the EDC is convincing stuff. The highlight for me: the 15+1 capacity, interchangeable backstrap and panels, and a 12-pound recoil spring — which makes racking the EDC a blessing for the hand strength impaired.
Here’s a look inside the ballistic jewel via the breakdown process.
No question: the Wilson Combat EDC is a genuinely innovative firearm in a sea of GLOCK-a-likes and standard-issue 1911s. I practically begged Wilson to send us one. Stand by for JT’s no-holds-barred review.
