    Happy Saturday all!! So, even using sneaky search modifiers I couldn't find much if anything about the Ed Brown surface coating... just a lot of Glock-related results. While EB has never been one of the "Popular Kids" here or on other forums, usually never mentioned in the same sentence as...

    This is a catch-and-release for me. I really, really like it, but I have some other interests to chase. This example was produced in 2013 and features the awesome "Chain Link" texturing on the front strap and mainspring housing. Currently sporting VZ Simonich Shooter grips. I do have a couple...

    Have this arriving tomorrow and I'm pumped. Ended up getting it for $2200. Ed Brown Special Forces II. Who can tell me more about these? This exact version seems to be hard to find info on. Built in 2013. Thought about calling Ed Brown to seek more info.

    Hello Fellow Addits, My Sandhawk is finally finished and everything non-2011 in the safe most go! This is an extremely fine gun in my opinion. I'm a doublestack guy but this one got me, its tough to let it go. Perfect condition under 100 rounds fired. 9mm 4" slide...

    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?
