Wilson Combat lives in a world centered on concealed carry, building premium machines designed to never fail. Shoot their firearms and you’ll understand all that goes into their design and construction. Now the company introduces yet another carry model, and it delivers an impressive array of carry-driven features. The new Wilson Combat SFT9 comprises a double-stack steel frame, chambered in 9mm, and built for carry.
Wilson Combat SFT9 Details
The tagline on this gun promises a blend of the classic double-stack with modern reliability enhancements. In other words, take decades of 1911 experience, mate it with current trends toward carry packages in 9mm, and the SFT9 emerges.
The SFT9 frame comes from a solid block of T6-7075 aluminum. Wilson Combat precision machines the block down into a one-piece solid frame. The “solid” matters, as the frame measures a mere 1.155 inches wide. And that reduced diameter, paired with the company’s TRAK grip texture, delivers greater control of recoil, according to Wilson Combat.
Proven Carry Choices
The Commander-length slide and frame provide a familiar, proven carry package. Machined in-house, Wilson Combat gunsmiths hand-fit each 4 1/4-inch Match-Grade Bushing-style barrel. Upon completion, the pistol undergoes testing to validate reliability and accuracy standards. The proof is in the pudding, as they say. In our experience, Wilson Combat pistols deliver on that accuracy and reliability promise, as advertised.
The TRAK grip texture proves non-abrasive during shooting sessions. The rounded edges also help eliminate snag during draw from concealment. The stainless steel slide wears a corrosion-resistant and scratch-proof DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) finish. Finally, dovetail front and rear sights and wide cocking serrations round out this high-end package.
The Wilson Combat SFT9 starts at $3,095. For even more info, please visit wilsoncombat.com.
