    I've seen railed Special Forces, but I think that's the first railed Kobra I've seen.

    I don't like that thing at all. The rail just doesn't look right at all on the KC.:shakehead:

    Honestly, I am a bit surprised at just how bad the Brown rail actually looks given their generally very clean and well thought out approach to aesthetics. Don't misunderstand, I'm not a huge fan of the way a rail looks on any 1911, but when I first heard that Brown would be/was offering a railed pistol I was hoping that maybe the could bring a bit of that clean and classic look to the rail itself. To my eye the exact opposite of that happened here.

    I figured you would love the title due to your extreme love for railed 1911's. :rofl:

    I've seen a railed Kobra Karry before on 1 of the 1911 forums. Railed 4" guns always look a little strange.

    I have seen 1 railed 5" Kobra that looked sweet. If I ever get another brown, that is what I would order.

    No doubt. Springfield got it right. Also really like the Guncrafter American for double the price. :whistling:

    I don't like rails on any 1911s, but some do it better than others.

    Well what do I know about aesthetics other than the "basic" 1911 is as close to perfection in something man-made as one can get. OK, I'm in love with them! (Just as they are without the --ouch-- rail.)

    looks just right to me. Purposeful. If I wanted a railed cary 1911 with those length/heighth dimensions, I hope it would look that good. What bugs me is the spelling of Kobra Carry. Why misspell Kobra (which removes the balance of 'CC') but not match carry (for the balanced 'KK')? Trademark? To match somebody's initials? If I bought one, I'd have to have them custom-properly spell Cobra Carry. THAT would be a conversation bit.

    The Kobra Carry moniker is my only beef with the gun. It's cutesy - kind of like some high school cheerleader telling you, "Hi, my name is Staci - with an I".
