Thanks! I'll have that puppy on the range the day it get's here! I've had and still have a bunch of 1911's, and have always tried to justify a custom. Now, I'm old enough to not have a lot to do, and plenty of time to do it. I hope this isn't like a potato chip, where you can't do just one. I know my DW's will be jealous.

Congrats! You will LOVE operating this gun. As an old 1911 guy that also shoots Glock, this gun shoots perfectly right out of the box. If only I could shoot as well as the gun is capable of shooting ;)

Thanks for the input. Surviving the build time is what sux now! That, and the feeling that I will soon have to look for a lined holster, never felt the need for that before, but somehow, this pistol seems to beg for that option.

As others said, it will be worth the wait! I went with a Palmetto Leather Works holster sold by WC (see pic from earlier). Love the leather and the ride on my belt. Options are scarce for the EDC X9. You might want to talk to Palmetto Leather directly - Here is a link and contact info for Matt: https://www.palmettoleather.com/pro...-combo-mag-and-holster-with-black-exotic-trim

Nice looking too! The X tac slide cuts and the Starburst grip are a great, unique look. Hope the months fly by and the weather is beautiful when it arrives

I have one coming, bought it through one of my favorite dealers on layaway. Every time I put together enough money to finish paying it off I find another gun to buy instead, knowing it’s lock in for me makes that easier to do:cool:

By the way, i have to ask, did it really take three months to receive your pistol after you bought it?
Mike, sorry I'm slow to respond to your follow-up. I found mine at a dealer so zero wait time. Hope it's under promise and over deliver direct from WC for you!
