Ed Brown has announced the addition of the new Executive Commander pistol to their Elite series of custom 1911 pistols. The company has also updated the Kobra Carry pistol. Let’s take a quick look at each of these handguns.
As Ed Brown describes it, the Executive Commander is essentially the commander version of the full-size Executive Elite pistol. The barrel of the Commander is 4.25″ as opposed to the Government size 5″ barrel of the Executive Elite. The front strap and mainspring housing feature a 25 LPI (lines per inch) checkering.
Ed Brown also points out the following features:
The slide is adorned with a French border, ball endmill cuts, flattened and serrated top and serrated rear, and topped off by a plain black fixed rear sight and gold bead front sight.
Here is also a video showing the Executive Commander pistol.
This pistol features a bobtail mainspring housing and frame shape, carry profile thumb safety, fixed black rear sight and red fiber optic front sight, recessed slide stop, 4.25″ flush barrel with recessed crown and heavy slide chamfer.
As in the case of other Carry series of Ed Brown pistols, this one also has their snakeskin pattern instead of checkering. Here is how the company describes it:
Unique with the Carry series pistols is the innovative snakeskin treatment. It is a directional pattern, meaning it is smooth to slide your hand up, but bites in for a snug grip the other way where you need it. It’s easier on the hands than checkering, and those who handle it can’t stop bragging about it. Not to mention it just looks cool!
The Kobra Carry is available in 9mm, .38 super or .45 ACP caliber options. It weighs 35 oz. The MSRP for this Ed Brown pistol is $2,920.
