Earlier this week, Wilson Combat announced their new ST9 pistol. The new Wilson Combat pistol is based off the iconic 1911 pistol but, with multiple design improvements over its predecessor. The WC ST9 has improved parts quality and features that make it more reliable and palatable for modern shooters.
The new Wilson Combat ST9 is a commander size 1911 chambered in 9mm. The ST9 features aggressive front and rear slide serrations, a 4.25” stainless barrel, Wilson’s Combat Battlesights, 3.5-4.5 lbs trigger pull, and Wilson’s TRAK texture on the front and rear straps. The new pistol also comes with two 15-round magazines. The ST9 slide is finished with a DLC Black coating and uses Wilson Combat Bullet Proof parts for enhanced reliability. Wilson Combat guarantees the new ST9 pistol will produce 1.5” groups at 25 yards out of the box.
Below, is the product description from Wilson Combat on the new ST9 pistol.
This new double stack 9mm handgun offers a unique blend of classic double stack design mixed with modern reliability enhancements that improve handling and shooting performance for shooters of all skill levels.
The foundation of the SFT9 begins as a solid block of the highest quality T6-7075 Aluminum that is precision machined on computer controlled machining centers until all that remains is the finished one-piece solid frame. The solid frame design is more rugged than other firearm designs with a modular grip/frame construction and thinner, with a width of only 1.155 inches. The reduced diameter of the Wilson Combat Solid Frame along with the TRAK grip strap texture improves recoil control and reduces muzzle flip during rapid fire.
The Commander length Slide and Barrel are precisely machined in-house at our facility in Berryville, Arkansas where our gunsmiths then handfit each 4¼ inch Match-Grade Bushing style Barrel for a lifetime of top performance. Each gun is rigorously tested prior to shipment to ensure that it meets our exacting reliability and accuracy standards. The end result is an easy to shoot handgun that is ready for high round count range sessions and every day defensive carry.
The Wilson Combat TRAK grip texture on the front and the rear of the grip frame offers a non-abrasive comfortable grip without sharp edges to snag on cover garments. The stainless steel slide wears a corrosion resistant and virtually scratch proof black DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) physical vapor deposition finish. The classic Commander slide profile features dovetail front and rear sights and wide cocking serrations for enhanced traction.
Wilson Combat has earned an enviable reputation for best-in-class reliability and proven performance. We are so confident in our products that each Wilson Combat firearm has a lifetime customer service guarantee with no strings attached.
The new Wilson Combat ST9 is available now on the company’s website. The introductory model retails for $3,095 for the basic version. The most expensive iteration of the ST9 pistol will cost $3,195. For more on the Wilson Combat ST9 pistol, click here.
