Just picked this one up today. Love it.
Very nice! Here's two of mine.
Very nice. Hard to beat that Kobra .
Very nice......I’ve always liked the feel of a Brown
Very nice handgun.
I’d love to own an Ed Brown if they would only make a 5 inch gun with a rail I’d buy one tommorow.
Beautiful work. Used to shoot with Ed in Columbia, MO with the MO Practical Pistol League with a lot of the shooters associated with Ray Chapman's range. Ed was always taking someone's gun home with him for some custom work because then hard to find a 1911 that you could compete with what is now called IDPA, out of the box.
Seems like I remember reading that is kinda how he got started was working on fellow competitors guns, and also making parts for other manufacturers. Smart man.
I had a long talk with Johnny Glock yesterday, and while he doesn't manufacture guns per se, does turn out some fine components I'm finding out, for the Glock. He started out the way Ed Brown did, doing tuning and custom work for the government, special ops guys deploying and friends who wanted better performance from their stock Glock. People kept telling him he ought to go full time, which he did. He says that he does a lot of government work now (didn't say what agency in particular) but that it was taking up more and more of his time. Sells his drop in trigger and some other components, but recommends having a local gunsmith do it rather than send in the gun to him. If you have the skills easily can do it yourself. He will still do full blown tuning if you want more after the firing pin, trigger etc installed, but his workload is increasing as stated above to such an extent that he is recommending a local gunsmith do the simpler drop in parts work. Said that usually takes care of most work wanted because Glock makes such a good gun out of the box. It's the older one's that need most of the work.
I like it. Nothing over the top. No bling.
Just beautiful high quality work. The finish looks flawless.
Those grips, while plain look great on that gun.
Only change I would make is getting rid of the Fiber Optic sights. Nice for daytime shooting but not much value in low light.
I'd go white dot but night sights would also work.
I previously owned two Special Forces 1911s from Ed Brown. I am 1911-less right now. One day, I will buy another, and it will be an Ed Brown again
Those are all very nice to see.
OP congrats, thats sharp.
Added another Ed Brown today 9mm
Of all the high class 1911 builders, I would have an Ed Brown if I could afford one.
I like the clean slides , he just makes a neat clean 1911. I have one more on my list , I just need to sell off some non shooters to make it happen.
That's what I want. One in 9mm with that finish
I know I am an idiot , and I proved it again today. I went back to the gun shop and bought back the Executive Carry I traded in a couple of weeks ago. I used it to get the deal done on the stainless Custom . I got to admit it's a pretty good looking gun though. Glad to have them both back in the fold now.
This seems perfectly reasonable.
