    I am regretfully putting my Ed Brown Kobra Carry LW chambered in .45 ACP. up for sale. Had some issues with me not being able to handle the recoil of this cartridge anymore. To top it off, I managed to have a misstep off a ladder last year and broke my wrist. So now when I shoot it I keep anticipating the pain and that just ain't working out. I'm looking at another "higher end" 1911 pistol chambered in 9mm as I can shoot that cartridge without any issues. I've had this pistol for about 3 years and it's a great shooter and looks almost brand new. Some knuckle head put an idiot scratch on the slide, (yeah, that idiot was me), so I sent it back to Ed Brown for a factory refinish and also had the crown reversed. Please check out the pictures. You will probably notice that the rear sight is Trijicon and the front site is green fiber optic. With my eyes that green fiber optic is much easier for me to see. If this pistol does sell I'll take the fiber optic sight off and put the Trijicon back on. I am asking $2500.00 plus shipping from my FFL to your FFL. And if you happen to have a "higher end" 1911 chambered in 9mm we might be able to make a trade. Shoot me an offer if you like, I won't be offended and the worse I'll say is I'm not interested Image00018.jpg Image00019.jpg Image00020.jpg Image00021.jpg Image00024.jpg Image00031.jpg Image00032.jpg Image00033.jpg Image00034.jpg Image00037.jpg .

    Just curious, why did it need a Hammer Strut replacement?

    Nice pistol. I personally think that EB doesn't get enough love.. I have a SPC II and it's a great firearm. I let go of a Les Baer, Dan Wesson, and a couple other makers and decided to keep that one for awhile.. GLWS Great piece...

    I couldn't agree more Steve. EB has some of the nicest finish work and the action on every one I've tried is smoother than brand X. They will shoot too.

    It didn't need the hammer strut replaced. I just installed it cause I had it laying around.
