It is inevitable I will receive inquires about this pistol. Wilson came out with a sold-frame version of the X-frame guns called the SFX9.
- SF = Solid Frame.
- X = X-Frame / Double-Stack
- 9 = 9mm Caliber.
So how is this pistol different than my incredible, stupendous, unbelievably fantastic EDC X9L? In a word: Grips. The solid frame guns do away with the user replaceable grip panels. Otherwise the rest of the gun is identical.
Will I get one? Dunno. I don’t really need two 5” X-frames. Should you get one? I say yes. The EDC X9L and / or SFX9 5” are the two best double-stack 1911s in the game.
Mark my words: in the future, the Wilson X-frame will be THE ONLY double-stack 1911 frame people want. Full custom boutique gun-smiths will either license it from Wilson, or wait until the IP expires and flat-out copy it. No kidding, no fooling.
