We are still fresh into 2017 and it is shaping up to be the year of the pistol. An anonymous source has revealed that Wilson Combat will be releasing a new 4″ alloy 1911 that takes double stack magazines. Dubbed the EDC X9, the new model won’t use STI/SVI 2011 magazines. Instead Wilson’s new handgun will accept 18 round magazines similar to the MecGar’s for the Beretta 92.

The details stem from a listing at Shooters Connection and shows a base MSRP of $2,895.

Obviously Sig has dominated the firearms news cycle with their P320 contract awards to both the U.S. Army and the Department of Homeland Security. H&K dropped the news of their new VP9 variants. FN is rumored to have a M17 contract contender that will hopefully filter down to the civilian market. And of course Smith and Wesson released the M&P 2.0 that hit store shelves in January.
