    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.

    I got an Ed Brown slide stop for my Springfield frame and the radius around the junction of the ss pin is too thick to allow the slide stop to function. The slide stop lobe is too far out to move up and down in the window cutout. What's the fix for this? Should I chamfer the hole in the frame or...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, Continuing to attempt to downsize my collection, so I'm going to list my Ed Brown Alpha Elite 5" in 45 acp. I've never even fired this one, and I already know that I will regret selling it, but I simply need to be responsible and downsize my collection... It's had 10...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, Continuing to attempt to downsize my collection, so I'm going to list my Ed Brown Alpha Carry in 45 acp. It's all stainless, and if you haven't seen Ed Brown's stainless in person you are missing out! It's beautiful!! I already know that I will regret selling this one, but...

    Did a recent trade with @Dan762. Went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend this addict!

    I saw a photo somewhere that of course I now can’t find of “Custom by Ed Brown” in attractive block lettering on the right dustcover, instead of that silly script on the slide. Does anyone have this option? Can you post a photo? Is it an up charge? Thanks!

    However, this particular one is about Ed Brown 1911's. I tend to peruse the classifieds here, and check out Guns International, Gun Broker, etc. for a 1911 that might tickle my fancy. It is only occasionally that I see an Ed Brown for sale. Why is that? Are they that good? Are they that rare...

    A moment of silence for the suppressed 1911s. Put em up!

    Late at night, laying in bed and bang, Gunbrokers struck. I'll have to say these Ed Brown EVO's are interesting, this was a pre-owned E9 so it was less than the suggested $2,295 MSRP. But after receiving it and giving it a once over I'll have to say it a very solid 1911. It feels solid as...

    At 63, I've been battling the disappearing, or blurry, front sight for a while. I mentioned it to my vision specialist who professes to shoot a little himself. Hey says the doc, get yourself some over the counter readers, some with ground glass lens if you can find them, but cheap is fine. He...

    Well, I got the call that my new leather gear was ready today and man they killed it. I couldn't be happier with the quality of everything. He made the belt, sheath, holsters, mag pouch all out of ray skin and horsehide. If you need custom work done Matt Whittaker is badass. This is actually...

    So I have narrowed it down to an Ed Brown for my next 1911. I have never owned one or held one but have read tons of reviews and opinions on them. I'm looking for a full size Government model. Those of you that own them, what model do you recommend and why? Thanks in advance!

    This worked out pretty good last time I did this, so let’s see how it goes this time. I’ve got my eyes on a few different guns from Les, Ed, Wilson and Nighthawk. However unless I’m doing trades this will be the last gun I buy for a while due to building a new house and funds being tied up. Let...

    I'm vacillating on whether or not to sell my beloved Ed Brown Kobra Govy. She was my CDP runner in IDPA until I switched to ESP and then CO div. Probably about 2,000 +/- rounds down her pipe and a little bit of holster wear. She was born on 9/22/2009. Assuming I do move to sell, do I send her...

    Thanks to a great neighbor here on the forum I saw an Armslist scam for a listing in San Diego using a pistol I have in the classifieds on this site. I'm not even sure if this Kobra is legal to own in CA. Whoever posted this knew the build date was 2012, something I didn't post in any ads...

    Good Morning Addicts!! I've been cleaning the safe out, and Jess has WAY too much cool stuff set back for him, that he's not going to do anything with. If I can talk him into letting them go, of course, Addicts is the first place that I am going to list them. Stay tuned guys, cause some of it...
