    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...

    Ed Brown/Zev that is... I really love the machining work and its an extremely high quality build. Its a compact, so a commander slide on an officers frame, plus a magwell. It uses Zev's patented Orion slide treatment and dimpled barrel. It also uses Ed Brown's Alien metal work on the front...

    I am seeking a Les Baer, Wilson Combat or Ed Brown, 1911, full size. New or lightly used. Even if you don’t have one, any tips on where I can look would be appreciated. I tried Smitty’s in De Soto. Cabela’s gun library has zero.

    First post toward the purchase of my first 1911: My search for my first 1911 brought me to this forum. I have tried to do all my homework, reading lots of previous posts to avoid boring everyone with the same old requests, but here is the story in a nutshell. I am seeking a more traditional...

    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.
