I have on order a DWX-Compact but who knows when DW will start up again. Wilson Combat makes the EDC XP9 (4”, 1911 on X Frame, 15+1). It’s beautiful but also $2700 MSRP. However, I I could trade in 2 DW ECO’s and a Sig P 365 XL recently bought but don’t like and only have a few hundred to pay for the Wilson. STI, Wilson XP9 and DWX -C are probably the three best 1911 double stacks out there.
When that DWX finally hit's the stores, STI and Wilson are going to have some serious competition @ 1700.00
