    I'm seeing these online for around $2300 what gives? Ed Brown website has them for 3k. They're being advertised as "Shot Show Special". A bunch of black ones and a few stainless.

    What is this thing and why are they so cheap? That's not much more than a wesson. Good deal or whats the deal?

    I didn't see them. Probably Demos. Could be a real bargain. EB guarantees the gun, not the owner for life. As long as you don't mess with it.

    Yep, guns that are essentially new but pre-fondled or used for Demos at SHOT. Looks like a pretty good deal. I'm sure they won't hang around long at that price.

    Too bad they didn't keep the Stainless finish on the one shown. EB stainless if the best.

    @HooDoo Man yes your Ed brown stainless posted on my earlier thread is what lead me down this rabbit hole. I have a line on a stainless special forces for $2200. Just doing my research. Looks like brownells had them for 1999 a couple years ago.

    Stain. S.F. Jump on it. The market is dry as hell. You will not regret it. I've had good service with EB CS. and shop also. $2200 is a good deal.

    There seems to not be as many used Ed Browns used of any line at anytime compared to LB's or Wilson's or even Nighthawks.

    Just snagged a special forces carry for right at that price. Would do it again in a heart beat. 20200628_090550.jpg

    fullsizeoutput_7ca.jpeg If you go to the ed brown site thats the base price without any options, once you start adding things the bill rises rapidly. Most of these have no options whatsoever. Cant go wrong though I love mine

    This is basically how I’m setting up my SA Loaded. These Ed Browns are very clean looking pistols. Their performance speaks for itself.

    I shot my EB SFC today, and it made me realize how little folks talk about their EB guns on this board. I was going to start a thread asking why there appears to be no love for Ed Browns, but I did a search first and saw this thread.
    So, why exactly aren’t y’all bragging about your Browns like you do your Wilsons, Baers, Alchemy’s, Nighthawks, etc?!?

    If I didn’t have a gun on the way , I would definitely buy another Brown. Thats a good price on a quality gun. E279715D-B494-4596-9997-437D753392F9.jpeg
