Finally Arrived and I Had to Share!

It's been nearly 8 months, but the Ed Brown Kobra full size I ordered back in February has finally arrived! Can't wait to take it to the range tomorrow and put it through its paces!

Thanks. I'm planning on running a few hundred rounds through it tomorrow, combination of Georgia Arms 230 grain ball and some Federal 230 grain HST (non +P).

If she runs half as good as she looks, I'll be one very happy camper!

I'll post a follow-up on how things go!

Thanks for the kind words. I just got back from the range a couple of hours ago and it went GREAT!

Fired 250 rounds through it without a single hiccup of any kind, and the accuracy was spot-on. It ate Federal HSTs like candy and also went through a hundred or so bulk reloads from Georgia Arms without a hitch.

Interestingly, the percieved recoil was noticeably less than with my Ruger SR1911. I'm guessing this is due to the additional precision in the Kobra's slide/frame fit (bac1023 or one of the other true 1911 Gurus could likely explain this in detail). I have to say I've never fired a 1911 that had a slide function as smoothly as this Kobra, and I've done a good bit of shooting with semi-customs, to include Wilson CQBs and a Nighthawk Talon. I can honestly say I now understand what some shooters are talking about when they describe the "set on ball bearings" feel of an Ed Brown's action.

All I can say is that the cost and the 8 month wait was well worth it! Mark me down as a very happy customer!

So glad to hear it man! I'm sure she'll give you and your family generations of accuracy and fun!
