Ed Brown Custom 1911s – Two New Checkering Patterns – SHOT Show 2013

Ed Brown

If you are a gun nut most likely you have already heard of Ed Brown. They are the defining 1911 by which all the other 1911 companies have been measured, because they make everything in the gun in-house, and their quality is second to none. Innovation in 1911s isn’t something many people talk about, because the gun is after all over 100 years old, but Ed Brown actually has a patent on that bobtail grip. Apparently other companies license it or buy the parts. They are also an innovator in checkering patterns, because besides new customers who want the latest and greatest, there are a ton of collectors of… Ed Brown. Because they make everything themselves, you don’t see the excuses and bottlenecks of why you can’t get your gun with Ed Brown. Delivery time has been in the half a year or so range for a while and if you order now you’ll have it by summer most likely. If you are silly in love with the 1911 and you want one of guns called “the best money can buy,” treat yourself to an Ed Brown 1911.

    I find that People want guns in five hundred dollar range, high priced guns are out for most shooters now a days. Give me a Savage, you can keep the Browning!

      That is what is great about the market today. There are millions of newer shooters who have not yet developed a taste for expensive guns. A Savage is a ton of gun for the money. It is great to see people excited about expensive guns. We are living in in the era of the finest kinds ever made and many of the best ones are very inexpensive.

        So, can you give a few examples of the best ones that are very inexpensive? I find “expensive/inexpensive” to be a relative term. Not being smart, just want to know what you are thinking. I’m always in the market for the best and inexpensive 🙂

    How does it handle compared to a Glock 30s (45apc) ?

      You serious, Clark?

      The Glock isn’t even in the same league. The ED Brown 1911s are like 10 times the gun the Glock will never be.
