Ed Brown recently introduced the new Alpha line of 1911 pistols. Two basic models anchor the series: the Alpha Elite and the Alpha Carry.
The Alpha Elite is a 5″ Government-type model that will be available with and without an accessory rail. The non-light rail version will be available with a stainless finish and a black finish. The accessory rail model will only be available with the black finish.
The Alpha Elite will have Chainlink I treatment on the front and rear of the grip. Night sights are standard. These models will weigh about 38 ounces, or about 0.17 stone.
For a more compact version, the Alpha Carry is a 4.25″ Commander-style pistol with a Bobtail frame. This gun shares all of the same features as the Elite, but without the rail option. This gun is a little lighter at 25 ounces (about 0.16 stone.)
