New guy getting Special Forces




Just ordered my first ever 1911 , a Ed Brown's Special Forces Gen.3 from a dealer online. Only thing I'll need is the ambidextrous safety. (lefty) Should have it by the end of the week. Feel like a kid at Christmas.

We realize your excited, but you should be in our shoes... I mean were going to get to see some pictures, and a full description of all the options, a range report, and then even more pictures...

Pictures...

I've put about a thousand rounds through mine now without a single failure. The trigger is crisp and the felt recoil is lower than any other 1911 I've fired. You should really enjoy it.

Since you guys appear to be rather new, snoop around some of these older threads... There is another gentleman from Mo, (Emerson) that has a SF with like 25,000 more rounds than that with no failures... Just amazing actually... My favorite actually. 1911 Mod Delta Kilo, has another awesome looking, well worn SF worthy of oogling over too. Plus many many others. I love mine too by the way.

I would aspire to get my pistol looking like Emersons well worn patina, certainly one of the best I've seen. He's mentioned what a pleasure it is to shoot it, just by the looks alone I'd say that it runs smooth as the very best. I never get tired of looking at jpegs of it going thru the stages of ownership and use. I've yet to get close to as many rounds as his, maybe some day..

No, no, no. Delta's looks like a tank was dropped on it. Emerson's looks like a gentlemen's gun

Congrats JE, you'll love it. Mine is just a couple of months old and has been great. I have a number of 1911s and the SF has climbed to the top of my favorites list.
