Is the KC9 California approved? The most common question we received about the new Ed Brown KC9 was, “is it CA approved?”. The simple answer is no, it is not, and will not appear on the CA roster. However, the KC9 upper will be available as a “retro” option. This means you can have the KC9 upper installed on your CA Ed Brown Kobra Carry, which will transform your gun into a KC9. You can even swap back to your 45 ACP upper easily, effectively having a dual caliber pistol. The only requirement is that you own a CA approved Ed Brown Kobra Carry, and you are willing to send it back to us under our Basic Service Package, to get the EVO KC9 upper installed. The firearm can then be shipped directly back to your home. There is a catch...we are so busy building new KC9's, that we will not be accepting any conversion work until sometime in the first quarter 2019 (we estimate). We will send a newsletter announcing when we are prepared to accept pistols for KC9 conversions, with all details including pricing, so please be patient and stay tuned.
