    A bit of a background: I'm Australian so it took ages for me to get my licenses and permits to obtain firearms, but I stuck with it and started off shooting polymer guns, Glocks, M&P, Sigs etc. But I fell in love with 1911s when I shot my club's Bul Armoury and Sig Elite 1911 9mm. So my very...

    There should be a separate section in the classifieds labeled “offer you can’t refuse” I bet there are some addicts (myself included) that would be willing to pay extra for something scarce that they really want For example, the Ed brown kobra carry is arguably one of the most iconic 1911s out...

    So I've read a number of posts and reviews here and elsewhere about the EB EVO KC9 having problems with certain ammo weights. From what I'm seeing, it's less about brands or FMJ vs JHP and more about heavier or lighter weight. I've been thinking about one of these for a new concealed carry...

    The more I keep seeing these the more I am wanting a set for my Ed Brown, KC9 SS. Need some recommendations on a good place to look and maybe purchase a set. Thanks

    I really like the Evo Series and after some debate, I decided on this E9 over the more common KC9. I preferred the traditional checkering over the snakeskin and I really like the magwell they use. This is the all steel model, as I have no need for an aluminum framed 1911. The E9 is also the...

    Has anyone had their standard 45 kobra carry sent in for their conversion? I’m thinking about pulling the trigger, but I’m struggling to find reviews. I see lots of KC9 reviews but having a hard time finding reviews on the actual conversion. Wondering if there are reliability issues to be...

    I currently have an EB with the Chainlink III treatment and like it. Been looking online at a number of Commanders with Snakeskin and I’m interested to hear from owners of both as to their preference.

    Good day fellow enthusiasts I have to let everyone know about my recent experience with Ed Brown customer service. A couple weeks back I had been 4 stages into an IDPA match when my KC9 failed to extract I had to stop and go to the safe table and came to the realization my day was over due to a...

    OK. Here’s my standing eight months after stumbling upon the 1911 obsession. What next? I’m trying to create “breadth” before buying similar models from assorted builders.

    Good afternoon addicts! I have for sale the last unfired pistol in my humble collection, and she’s a real beauty! This Special Forces is in absolutely mint condition. She is two tone with a black slide and grey frame with carbon fiber grips. The slide was sent back to Brown for a tactical U rear...

    Hi everyone. I am looking for a Stainless commander size 1911 in 9mm or 38 super. Specifically a Valor or a Point Man carry. Would even be interested in an Ed Brown. If anyone knows of one available or spots one somewhere I would appreciate the help.

    For those of you that own or have owned from multiple of the semi custom manufacturers - how would you rank them? Please only rank what you have owned. Feel free to elaborate on why you rank them the way you do.

    I have noticed that some older DWs have Ed Brown grip safeties. Does anyone know what years these were made?

    I'm on the fence between 2 options, hoping for fair and reasonable advice without getting blasted for my question. I have a Kimber Team Match II, and I believe it's a 2017 version, so one of the newest ones. I bought this before I get involved in this site, and honestly didn't know the...

    Kind of cool. About 30 min long. Always had mad respect for guys who do this work.

    Thinking about picking one of these up. The one I’m looking has the original chain link frontstrap. It’s got the Stealth Grey Gen4 lower and gold bead front sight. Any opinions or things I should look out for on this model? Thanks

    Just went on their gun builder section and skip line checkering is no longer an option to select. Pisser!. I own 2 Browns, both with the Skip Line. I know some folks don't care for it, but it's my favorite checkering ever offered by anybody.

    I've talked with about this since I joined and have gotten good advice that I appreciate. I on Saturday bought an Ed Brown Special Forces 1911. I really wanted a Nighthawk custom but they didn't have the model I desired. I've been really looking at the Nighthawks and Staccatos. My buddy from the...

    I've owned my fair share of 1911s but recently I purchased an Ed Brown Special forces 1911. I wanted to treat myself after selling my house. I wanted a Nighthawk Custom but my local gunshop that I love had about 4 of them and the only one in 45 was the president. I liked it but the gold was a...

    Hi everyone, recently joined the forum to get more insight on the 1911 as I am looking to purchase a high-end gun ($4K budget). This forum has been an enormous wealth of knowledge as I've dug deeper, but now I feel even further from being able to make my decision on which brand/gun to purchase...
