Ed Brown

The year 2018 marked our 50th year in business, and the second generation family leadership continues to evolve the 1911 with the release of the first model of the EVO series, the KC9. Optimized for 9mm, smaller, thinner, and lighter than the Kobra Carry, the KC9 was an instant best-seller. All of the Ed Brown quality we are known for, in a modern evolved 1911 platform, with a ground-breaking price tag, which shocked the custom gun industry. Our investments in technology, state-of-the-art equipment, complete vertical integration, a full line of 1911 parts of our own design, and 50 years of accumulated knowledge and expertise have made it possible.

We have bench-marked our business processes and customer service against the best companies in the world, and evolved our methods into the most efficient customer system in the industry. Our customers can now contact us 24/7 with any question or issue, and be instantly routed to the proper channel for the speediest resolution possible by a subject expert. Our custom build page allows the customer to spec out a custom gun and get fully educated on more than 100 options in the process, and then get a final exact price, and delivery estimate, in real time, and even place the order automatically if they choose. We also made the conversion to a LIVE online inventory system that always shows inventory levels in real time. Even though we are the ONLY custom gun company to offer a written warranty, we figured out how to top that by adding a Risk-free online purchase policy, a Trade-up program for your old firearm, and a Basic Service Package to make it easier than ever to return your firearm to the factory for service or retro options.
