    Yep, Ed Brown is making 50 9mm's.
    Price is around $2700ish

    Thinking about it, but man is that steep.

    They are bound to offer up some more, and so if you want one you'll get one in the end.

    Makes me second guess having my 9mm 1911 listed for sale though, they ain't gettin' any cheaper.

    True. But considering the fact that they pre sold the 50 in 24 hours do you really think that they won't make more of them? Demand = $$

    Well I'm SOL. The first person wants it :(

    Hope they have another run next year. Maybe something like a SF or one of the Carry models.

    I never thought I would see the day that the old codger would make a 1911 in that sissy kraut caliber. (Peaks out window to see if it is snowing in Texas in July)!

    I can see why. 9mm has become a very popular caliber for the 1911 in the past few years. Combine that with Ed Brown's workmanship and you get a winner.

    Funny story about another old timer. A while back I was trying to trade a Springfield Loaded Target 9mm and a Loaded .45 for a higher end 1911. I had this older gent call me and offer a trade on a Colt Commander. However, he told me that the 9mm 1911 was not a very popular gun (after I had been trying to get one for a few months) and that I would have to give him both my Loaded SA to get his one Colt. I tried very hard not to laugh and told him thanks, but Ill pass.

    I have a Springfield Custom Carry in 9mm that is about 6-8 weeks out. Ive been real impressed with thier work, and you may give them a try if you want something like that. Dont you have a TGO?

    yep. that Custom Carry in 9mm is still a thought.
    maybe even give Dave a call and see if he can turn my EMP into a CCO EMP :)

    Though I don't buy them, it is cool to see Ed Brown offer another caliber.

    I've long thought about a 9mm 1911 but so far I have stuck with .45s.

    It would make a sweet plinker or ESP gun.:whistling:

    Yeah but damn dude, $2,700ish? Hell, have Alex at GI whip one up for you. Would be a little less and probably equal if not better.

    ...or do like Wade and have Keith at DW make up up a custom 9mm CBOB for a grand less.
