    Fellow Addicts, As mentioned in my post When Life Gives You Lemons… I’ll be listing over a dozen pistols for your consideration. Tenth up is an Ed Brown Kobra Carry chambered in .45 ACP. I personally spec’d this pistol out with a well-known dealer based in MI almost a year ago to the day. In...

    This pic shows the gap around the ejector. The slide to frame fit is excellent. The .156 wide U notch is easy to pick up with old eyes. The flattened and serrated top and FO front sight. 25 lines per inch front strap. Feels good and secure in the hand. The abbreviated 25 LPI checkering on the...

    The Purdy pitchers come later. These are on the bench at the range. I posted the above from my phone. Now to finish. I'll get to the good stuff. I stopped at the FFL on the way home from work. Everybody there wanted to see an Ed Brown. It came with a single magazine. Really Ed Brown? I gave it...

    It's in. I'm on lunch break right now. In about two hours, I'll pick it up. Within 15 minutes, I'll be putting rounds downrange. Dirty picks at the range come first, then I'll try to take some purdy ones.

    I just received a new recoil spring plug from Ed Brown to replace the 2-piece guide rod that came with my EB Classic Custom. The edges seem to almost be threaded. It’s very difficult to seat in the bushing. Is this the way they are supposed be? Do they wear in?

    If you’re following along with my SACS Pro regularly kicking my ass, you’ll be happy to know my incompetence and lack of skill does seem to have a limit! Short story: I bought an inexpensive Desert Eagle 1911G, to learn on. I had it a few years and managed to never idiot mark it or any other...

    Build is complete. I completed payment on their difficult to use site. Let us hope they didn't 'misplace' the FFL info my guys sent to them.

    I am a new member here, but have been lurking for awhile. I have been enjoying the pictures of all the nice 1911’s. I thought I would share a picture of my Ed Brown that I purchased about a year ago. It has been carried and shot a few thousand times. It is just starting to show a little wear. I...

    Hello, I'm planning my next pistol purchase and I am interested in a reasonably high-end carry-sized 1911/2011. I have narrowed it down to an Ed Brown KC9 or a Staccato C, because they are both chambered in 9mm and are the ideal size for me. The Staccato C is priced at $1699 and the KC9 is...

    I have the absolute best wife and sons! I retired officially on 1 May 2021. My family asked what I wanted, and I said a nicer 1911 than what I own. I picked up a LB Prowler III when I made E7, a Colt Combat Commander for E8, and a LB Stinger when my retirement paperwork was approved. I was...

    Just got word from Ed Brown. A lack of steel has delayed my order. They currently have no idea of when it might be completed. Shyte! Damn! Hell! The tenor of the message suggested that they do have the steel now. Should have gotten it last week.

    Another catch and release. Found something I have to have. Attached is original sale link. I received the gun and fired one mag through it. Functions perfectly. Finish has a little wear but that’s to be expected on a carry gun. New sights by EB and gone through. I’ve purchased 2 additional sets...

    I’ve wanted an Ed Brown 1911 for a long time. I think their stainless finish and classic looks can’t be beat. I went the custom build route, so they say it could be up to seven months before it’s shipped. I’ll post pics, but it might be a while.

    Sent my Alpha Carry back to Brown because I had dropped it and marred the finish. I did not particularly care for the Gen4 finish anyway after carrying it for a year or so. While it was there for the refinish back to stainless, I had them flush and crown the barrel, flatten and serrate the slide...

    I have the opportunity to purchase one of these for $2399. That seems like an excellent price. I’m really wanting to add a full size stainless to the collection and I’ve heard EB makes one of if not the best looking stainless out there. Is this a good price?

    Honest opinions from anyone who’s owned a mixture of these? I’ve done a ton of research and it seems WC is the most popular for quality, fit, finish. I’ve seen some beautiful NH. Currently own a EB that is a fantastic gun. Is it really just personal preference?

    I've been playing around with mag-releases, it started when I ordered some different weight mag-release springs from Dawson Precision (they have 3 weights light, medium and heavy) as the mag-release in the CT Brian was the stiffest I had ever felt. That worked like a dream. Then I figured I...

    Is there a recommended number of rounds for a break in? Ammo is precious right now. I have what the media might call an extraordinary amount, yet that is not inexhaustible. Just wondering.
