Ed Brown Unique Guns

Ed Brown 1911

Ed Brown Products, Inc. has been in the firearms business for about 40 years. The company is known for making high end 1911 pistols and parts. The company is now showing off some unique guns that it has built.

According to the company, these pistols were built with a variety of options as examples for customers. The idea is to help customers get an idea of the different options available when ordering their own custom 1911 pistol. So, these pistols may be a little more trick that a standard Ed Brown gun.

The photo at the top of the article shows a Special Forces SR (Suppressor Ready) pistol in the Commander form. It has the tall iron sights and threaded barrel. Additionally, the slide is cut an fitted with a Trijicon RMR. This gun is in the same general family as the Special Forces Molon Labe previously discussed here.

This Government sized 1911 is called the 2nd Amendment 1911. It featured red, white and blue VZ Grips panels. Engraved in the slide is the rattlesnake image from the Gadsden Flag. It has a satin stainless finish and an ambidextrous thumb safety. Although not specified by Ed Brown, the gun appears to be part of the company’s Alpha Series.

This is another 1911 from the Special Forces line. It is Commander sized with a Stealth Grey Gen4 slide and a black Gen4 lower. Ed Brown outfitted this pistol with a flush barrel crown and recessed slide stop. Additionally, the company used ball endmill cuts and fitted it with a set of VZ Grips carbon fiber grips.

    you’d think for the custom name sake they would do a better job at matching their front slide relief cuts to their frames.

  • Big Daddy

    Best handgun I ever shot was an Ed Brown 1911.

    More like Ed Money. Those are some hideous 1911’s. I wasn’t even aware you could ugly a 1911. My world view now…..

    Clearly the most unique pistols, if you’ve been stuck in ice since 1930.

    Am I crazy for thinking people are dumb for paying $3,000+ for a pistol designed over 100 years ago? So much innovation…

      I’m waiting for more gas operated 10mm Auto pistols. We can dream.

        Haha what’s funny is I don’t get the whole 10mm craze either…

        I would settle for roller delayed… let’s call Korth.

        Eh, in 10mm all you need is STAR MEGASTAR!

        Yes, you are obligated to write it in all caps.

        • Ryfyle

          Well it’s called the MEGASTAR, it needs the Caps.

      I’ve shot some pretty expensive 1911s… and I can’t even describe what it’s like. It’s effortless, I guess.

      Most accurate pistol I’ve personally ever shot was actually a 4″ Les Baer. Just brought a smile to my face.
