    I would really like to pickup a Special Forces. I have started a 1911 100th aneversarry fund cause I am sure all the big names will release them, and even if I can't find one I like I will have enough to order a Baer TRS or the Brown SF

    I think they are my favorite overall among the larger names in 1911s. My last 4 1911s have been Brown, S&W, Kimber and Brown so they at least have the lead lately! :)

    I hope EB's folks weren't the ones who fit that funnel and grips! :supergrin:

    I love their Executive Elite most of all!

    I am not a real big ed brown fan...the only model that really attracts me is the kobra carry w/ bobtail...specifically officer match's (well the one he sold a month or so back)

    The fitting is fine.

    Brown did it. The problem is that the grips are beveled, not flush to the magwell.

    The Classic Custom comes standard with no magwell.

    At one time I had five, this is the only one that I have left, and the only reason I sold the others were due to Bills and work being slow, they were superb weapons as is this one

    As I look closer, with my old eyes, I can see the grips are the cause of the gap... just really jumped out at me the first time by...

    Still a purty gun!

    Thanks.

    All of Browns grips are beveled.

    Here are some better pics.
