My lifestyle and workstyle has changed such that this beautiful EB Special Forces Carry no longer "fits" in my arsenal.
Purchased new in March, 2018. 45ACP, fewer than 500 rounds fired (all factory ammo). Includes:
  • Upgraded night-sights
  • Eight (8) total magazines: 5 each @ 7-round capacity, 2 ea. @ 8 rounds (all Ed Brown) and a W/C 10-rounder.
  • Three (3) sets of VZ G-10, Double Diamond Grips: Original rosewood, flat black and black/grey "Sandstone" finish
  • Ed Brown soft carry bag, owner's manual, lock and hang-tag. View attachment 202567

See pics for details, but it's immaculate. Prefer Certified Check or USPS Money Orders, but will work with buyer on PP/F&F or personal check (held until funds clear); cash always works, too!
$1,995, shipped to your FFL. I'm in the KC area. Face-to-face within a reasonable distance is okay, and private party sales by MO statute do not require FFL involvement. If you are a MO resident, we can work out something in terms of price and logistics. Not looking for trades.

Thanks for looking, PM with questions!

Thanks, Slapshot. Hate to let it go, and, if this makes it any easier, here's a pic of my first target ever with this beauty. Had never shot a 45ACP 1911 before...

If a nearly new CZ TSO 9mm would fit in your arsenal, I’m open to trade talks.

Appreciate the offer, dstall, but not looking to trade (per the listing), unless you might have a Henry H006CR and twelve Benjamins! Cool CZ, though! Thanks for looking.

Very nice pistol and an awesome price.

Thank you, sir! I'm sure it will find a good home. Tell all your friends!
Here's another pic. Of the inside of the soft case. Wondered about the appeal, but it's much more useful than the hard plastic ones. Holds all these mags and the gun and the grips, all in one place.

This is one extremely nice firearm. Shot it several times on my KC trips, and it's a dream to shoot. Dead nuts accurate. All of my targets were pretty much like E's, (all 1 jagged hole). Didn't take any pictures though. As they say, the better time you have, the fewer pictures you take. Anyway, this is a true bargain by the EB itself. Throw in 2 sets of grips, all the mags, and damn if you ain't making money buying it. This is a true cherry. Plus E Squared is a stand-up guy and you can deal with confidence.

B, thanks for the vote(s) of confidence! The KC group shoot and our subsequent outings have been fun, huh?

Appreciate your kind words and assessment of the "deal," which, coming from someone other than the owner, and someone who has actually shot this prize, says a LOT!

This just shows how soft the market is right now, this thing wouldn't have lasted 10 mins last year. Someone is going to get a helluva deal out of this gun.. Ed. Brown in my opinion is really starting to step up their game in the past year especially. I have gotten many of their parts in the past that were just meh... But, in the last year the parts I have gotten and used have been superb..GLWS this should of already been gone. Especially with the extraz.

Well, that's a "good news/bad news" post, if I've ever seen one! The bad news is, the market's still soft and there was a time, not so long ago, that this would have been picked off already.

The good news is, this "haircut" I'm willing to take (live and learn) creates a true "win/win."

Thank you, Steve, for your endorsement of the deal!

Time will tell...

Please someone buy this, I cannot afford it, I am trying to move away from 45 ACP, I need to pay other people for stuff I am buying .... but geez, what a deal! I so wish I was flush right now!

E-Squared, what a beauty and what a deal. I agree with Steve, with all the extras this is a steal and I am not even a huge EB fan (DW yes, EB never had one).

Please remove the temptation to go deep into debt someone......!!!!!
