    Interest in Wilson Combat EDC Professional?

    We've been talking to Wilson Combat about the EDC Professional 9mm. This pistol has been released to the US market with the 4" barrel, but WC is interested in possibly doing a 107mm version with 10rd mags for us if the interest is there.
    Let us know if this is something you'd like to see and we will make it happen.

    Sorry man, I couldn't care less about a semi-auto with a hammer.

    I concede that they generally have a better trigger than a striker-fired gun, but I'll never buy a 1911 of any variety.

    If I want to feel an old-fashioned gun I pick up my 44 magnum revolver or a lever gun, but hammer semi-autos to me are a huge turn off, like cars from the 1980s.
    I have no signature block.

    They generally have a better trigger than a striker-fired gun, and the next handgun I buy will be a 1911 in 9 mm.

    If I want to feel an old-fashioned gun I pick up my 357 magnum revolver or a lever gun, but hammer semi-autos to me are a pleasure to use, like cars from the 1960s.

    I'm not spending more than 3 grand on one, though.

    Even if they made a faithful rendition of a Colt National Match pattern pistol (my true love), I couldn't justify it.

    Once again, a poll with no answer that fits.

    My EDC is a 1911. Colt Commander (light weight) .45 ACP.

    A reasonably priced, reliable .45 auto pistol with good sights and a good trigger is always of interest.
    Gun Control is about making it unlawful for you to use, carry, or possess a firearm.

    All restrictions/prohibitions on the use, carriage, or possession of firearms must be repealed.

    Middle ground?

    What middle ground?

    Honestly not my cup of tea regardless of price.

    You may find a market for White Oak Armory barrels... see lots of praise stateside, and I don't know anyone dealing with them up north.

    This gun is a long way from being "old-fashioned"; Fluted Chamber, Fluted Barrel, External extractor, Fiber Optic Front Sight, modern materials manufactured with modern machinery, with modern options.

    And "Accuracy Guarantee: 1.5” at 25 yds" - I don't think I've ever seen a pistol of any kind with a guarantee like that before?

    So, what makes a gun "modern", anyway? It's a pretty weak premise to suggest that it's old-fashioned because it has a hammer; is my car old-fashioned because it has a clutch?

    If this WC were in my price range I would totally be interested.. but I really doubt it'll even be in the neighbourhood.

    ..why on earth would anyone want or need a fluted chamber in a pistol?

    According to the internets:
    The main purpose of fluting is to reduce weight, and to a lesser extent increase rigidity for a given total weight or increase surface area to make the barrels less susceptible for overheating for a given total weight.
