The latest trend in the CCW market is subcompact, high-capacity 9mm handguns. Pistols like the Ruger MAX9 and the Sig P365XL have pushed as far as compact a weapons can be when a huge magazine is still available and they can be shot easily. Perhaps not a direct competitor to these other models, the Wilson Combat 15-round SFX9 has definitely taken inspiration in its releases from certain recent market developments.

The SFX9 can never be as tiny, light or cheap as the striker-fired polymer-framed weapons which currently dominate the industry based on the basic concept design from 1911, which Wilson Combat is known for. Although the SFX9 may not be the most hidden option available, it has advantages in other aspects that will certainly appeal to the demographic target of Wilson Combat. Wilson Combat was able to bring the 1911 to the 21st century as a fully feasible defense tool for those who could afford one, along with revolutionary design upgrades. And its new SFX9 is one of its most enticing cargo options.

The SFX9 uses the solid framework technology of Wilson, which mills one block of aluminium from T6-7075 into one, exceptionally durable 1911 frame. Using aluminium helps reduce the weight of the pistol by just one hair under 30 empty ounces, so that longer carrying sessions are much more comfortable. Furthermore, the Hammer, Safety, Magic and Rear View of the SFX9 are simplified to help cover up and allow snag free drawing. This 1911 is about as comfy as is feasible with a 100+ year-old design combined with this 3,25-inch long barrel.

Historically, 9mm 1911s have a less reliable compared with their ACP counterparts. Even 9mm 1911s were notoriously finicky for a long time because of the type of ammo they were given. However, with their enhanced reliability system or ERS, Wilson Combat seemingly resolved issue. The rails, bolts and even extractors have been changed to cycle any 9mm power reliably, regardless of whether the gun is dry or dirty (within reason). The two 15-round mags that came in the box are created for various notable firms by Mec-Gar, Italian company who seems a global monopoly over high-grade double-stack handgun magazines.

The Wilson combat SFX9 appears like a brand new CCW for people who want a tiny 9mm pistol with a high capacity. Although it may not be as modest as some of the other “deep hide” alternatives available today, it will show how your more money has gone.
