Another Fueled Series from Ed Brown is here. It’s called the MP-F4 and as usual, it’s based on the polymer, striker-fired Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 in 9 mm. The philosophy behind the Fueled Series is to break down an S&W M&P in parts and put it back together with redesigned key components. With a black Nitride slide finish, the golden nitride barrel stands out quite a lot compared to previous versions that were mostly black.
The pistol comes with a 17 round magazine with a low profile base pad and an extended magazine for a 19 round capacity.
Below you can read the announcement from Ed Brown in full:
PERRY, MO – Ed Brown Products, Inc. is excited to be adding the F4 to the Fueled™ Series of custom pistols, based on the popular Smith & Wesson® M&P® 2.0™ 9mm.
For over 50 years, Ed Brown has set the standard for the highest quality 1911 parts and handguns. Driven to find ways to improve, they’ve taken advantage of modern technology and re-engineered every part in the 1911, in order to achieve the best performance possible. This same philosophy is now being applied to other handgun platforms such as the S&W® M&P 2.0.
The new MP-F4 shares most of the custom features and characteristics of its three predecessors with one exception – the golden barrel. Coated in Titanium Nitride, it gives this new pistol a luxurious appeal, it really stands out with the Black Nitride custom slide, black custom trigger, and black frame. Ed Brown’s custom accuracy rail is the heart of the Fueled™ Series. Perfectly mating the slide to the barrel for an exceptional fit, improving lockup and accuracy. Next is a fully machined custom slide, with custom cuts for a striking appearance, with material in all the right areas for hard use and to maintain functionality. The 416 stainless, button rifled match barrel customized with Ed Brown tread flutes, includes ½ x 28 threads and a custom thread protector, so it’s fully suppressor ready. The re-designed and re-engineered custom extractor mates perfectly to the custom slide, ensuring the best reliability possible. Finishing off the package is custom sights, trigger, 360 degree magwell paired with machined base pads, machined frame pins, and aluminum backplate with custom serrations. Each Fueled™ Series model is fitted by hand with the same focus and care as they’ve been doing for more than 50 years.
In addition to four Fueled™ Series models, a complete line of fully machined parts and accessories are available for Smith & Wesson® M&P® 2.0™.
Sales and Marketing Director John May said, “After over 50 years of being the custom 1911 source, Ed Brown is now the custom M&P® source as well. Just one more reason, that if you haven’t looked at Ed Brown in while, it is time to look again!”
