Here's some random thoughts on Ed Brown, I'm not talking about the gun (cause I have not shot it yet) but the experience and delivery impressions. First off, they delivered the gun incorrectly. I had ordered the CCO Lightweight with the Kobra treatment on the rear cocking serrations and they overlooked that. So, I'm sending the gun back. I know sh*t happens, but it got me thinking. Having ordered a few Wilson's and just bought a pre-owned Nighthawk how did the delivery experience compare? Actually, I think it's quite disappointing for a $3,900 1911. Oh, and the rear night site is dated 2015, the front 2017. There's not one reference to the build or anything they deliver with the gun that shows my serial #. No check list, no list of the smith's that worked on the gun, no test target, not a sticker, pamphlet, piece of sales material or a thank you letter from Ed Brown. There's a very generic owner guide with one picture. No join the NRA pamphlet, nothing. What I got was: A bushing wrench ED Brown oil Allen wrench (1) Gun lock Owners Guide 2 magazines soft case With Wilson I felt like I was part of a family. I know, it's stupid. But the checklist, test target, dog tag, shiny sales material, stickers, a patch and even a free year of NRA membership made me feel like I had just received something special. Thoughts ? Am I crazy or will all be forgiven when I shoot the gun ?
