Wilson EDC-X9. $2,700 local. Location is East Nashville, but can meet within reasonable distance.
Not really looking for trades, but would consider partial ones to help get you there. I only shoot 9MM, 5.7, and .223....and 22LR, but I don’t need anything in that dept. I’m also extremely picky and have almost everything I need/want.
This was purchased 7/3/18 and was manufactured on 4/25/18. I’ve definitely shot this one a fair amount. I’d estimate 2K-3K rounds, but I’m guesstimating. There are signs of wear on it from shooting and carry, but nothing from a drop or misuse- just light finish wear in places like the controls and edges on the slide/magwell.
Quick review on the EDC-X9. I absolutely love this gun, but I’m not going to carry it anymore. I put some factory rounds though it that would not cycle in any other gun I owned because they were light "minor" loads and the OAL was too much. The EDC eats anything (never tried steel cased stuff) and shoots it all accurately. I was still working on accuracy with it during slow fire, but my double taps are around .12-.20 splits with 8" center mass accuracy at 7-10 yards. I actually made a video on how much I love this gun and why I carry it, which must have jinxed me...
I actually stopped carrying it around the time I made that video because I have tons of Glocks and noticed a big difference on my draw, grip, and target acquisition with this gun after shooting Glocks all weekend. I went back to a G19 or G26 for carry as a result and this has been sitting in a safe, waiting for me to reluctantly list it here.
Only modification made is an Ameriglo front sight versus the fiber optic, but both are included.
Pistol with Ameriglo Tritium sight installed
Two mags (only one is pictured)
Two Grey Man mag holders (one reversible for IWB/OWB)

Awesome pistol bag with two external pouches and 7 external mag holders- it does have a stain from the factory oiled rag beneath it. Wife JUST tried cleaning it before pic, so it looks worse than it is, but it is stained
Stupid greasy oily rag that stained the bag
Allen keys and tools
Fiber optic front (came on gun)

My Horrible YouTube video with awful audio
So I ended up with this Sig P365 lower in trade, just the lower with FCU with manual safety and the box. Anyone have anything to trade for it? Or offer cash? Would make a great smaller variation to your XL or if you wanted the safety version on your standard one. Or you can get one of the SAS slides sig is selling and make up a franken sig.
$450.00. Good condition, a few light handling marks, fired little. Shoots good. This one serial number begins with HP so according to info borrowed online, it was machined in US by dan wesson. Box and original papers, two mags.

By 1970 FN and Browning’s Patents on the P35 had expired, so the Communist Hungarian arms conglomerate, FÉG, began producing the most faithful copy of the Hi Power ever seen outside of the FN plants in Belgium and Portugal. Completely reverse engineered, FÉG simply called it their Model P9. It was imported into this country during 1985 and 1986, and again from the early 90’s until FÉG declared bankruptcy in 2004. Importers such as Kassnar Imports, KBI, Century International, SSME, and Tennessee Guns International imported the guns under several model numbers. The most prolific of the importers was the Kassnar family’s KBI Inc., which imported them under their in-house model number PJK-9HP, and also as the Charles Daly Hi Power, which is what this story is all about. This is the gun that became the Charles Daly Hi Power discussed in the following paragraphs.
Along about 2006 or so, KBI Inc., came up with a different way to produce and import these guns. He began importing them as unfinished kits which would be finished by contractors in the USA under the banner of the “Charles Daly Hi Power.” The real draw here is that they would be the only mass produced Hi Power ever to have “Made in USA” stamped on them. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. The Charles Daly Hi Power cost more to produce than it sold for, and KBI Inc., lost money on every one they sold. But they are darn good guns that are well worth their money and then some. If you hanker for one or own one, here are some facts that may be helpful to you.
The first finishing contractor for these guns was Dan Wesson Inc., who finished the first 800 units (corrected 5/1/15 from the 500 originally stated) with serial numbers beginning in “HP.” The Dan Wesson guns were provided with dovetail slots set up for Novak style sights made to Browning Hi Power dimensions.
The remainder of the Charles Daly Hi Power production run was finished by Magnum Research, Inc., and carried the serial number prefix “HPM.” The Magnum Research guns had their dovetail slots also set up for Novak style sights, but to the dimensions of the Colt M1911. The Charles Daly pistol in the photos is a Magnum Research "HPM" pistol and the sights are indeed made for the M1911
OK, so what about the guns. Are they worth anything? Yes, they certainly are. And they’re getting hard to get because their owners know what they have and don’t have much interest in getting rid of them. If you find one in good condition, you have a good gun made to the standards of well-made commonplace pistols, but not to the meticulous standard of finish workmanship found in the Browning gun. Their prices will run between a third and half as much as a new Browning Hi Power, so you can’t expect them to contain that gun’s premium finish work. I’ve owned five of the P9’s marked as CDHP’s and PJK-9HP’s and have never had a malfunction, so I think very well of them.
They came with Uncle Mike's black rubber grips, which are functional but not attractive enough for me, so they were replaced right quick with a set of Herrett’s Cocobolo grips. They come with the FÉG extended safety lever, which is one of the nicest ones around. The sights provided on these guns were big dot express sights, which my old eyes and old habits just couldn’t get the hang of, so I replaced them with a set of adjustable sights from the now-defunct Miniature Machine Company of Las Vegas. The exterior finish is matte all over except for the sides of the slide, and the blue job is more grey blue than black blue. The external polishing of the metal is very well done.
How accurate are they? Every one of them I’ve had were just as accurate as any of the mainstream 9mm’s like the Beretta 92, the Smith and Wesson 5906, and even the Browning Hi Power. If you can handle the sights, the inherent accuracy is there, and most of them have good enough triggers in them to really develop their accuracy potential. And any magazine that will work in the Browning Hi Power will also work in the Charles Daly Hi Power. I don’t think you can go wrong with one if you can handle a single action gun. So if you happen to run into one over at the LGS be careful, they tend to want to follow you home. Hope this information will be helpful to you.
