The gun manufacturer released the following details about their EDC X9:

The hand-fitted 3.25” stainless-steel barrel design has the same match-grade accuracy potential as the larger EDC X9 handguns and is painstakingly tuned by our gunsmiths for flawless reliability with a wide variety of target and defensive ammunition. The stainless steel slide wears the most advanced black DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) physical vapor deposition finish available with chromium and tungsten underlayers for long-lasting corrosion and abrasion resistance.

The 3.25” subcompact slide assembly is tailored to the varying power level of 9mm ammunition and maintains impressive reliability in all conditions, even when heavily fouled and low on lubrication. Other features include a Tri-Top slide profile with user-replaceable front sight, single lug tapered cone match-grade 1911 barrel, rear Tactical Concealment Battlesight, and a rugged, user-replaceable extractor.

From its classic starburst grips to the X-TAC rear and front slide serrations, this is a gun that was made for superior performance when fired under stress. Its features facilitate a firm grip, even with wet hands, and are also made to help rapid target acquisition. Trigger pull weight is set at the factory between 3.5 and 4.5 pounds. There’s no doubt this is an accurate gun, so as long as you do your part you should be pleased with the results.
