My two Browns. One with new grips!






Here are my two Ed Browns, two of my favourite firearms in my collection. Also just got another set of grips from Sarge--snakewood this time. Love this set because the pattern looks more reptilian or snake like to me instead of leopard-ish. I think I still slightly prefer the look of my walnut burl grips, but i'm pretty fascinated with snakewood too so it's nice to be able to change it up.

I like the new grips a lot..adds a little spice to the KC while still maintaining it's beauty.

Super pistols and beautiful grips. I've seen enough of Sarge's art that they are starting to call my name.

Humm...wonder if that's why they call it Snakewood?

Looking good. Look forward to receiving my recent Sarge order.

Gorgeous guns and grips! The snakewood grips are especially nice.

BOTH guns are so butt ugly that I'll take them off your hands so nobody will have to look at them any longer!

See what a great guy I am that I don't want you to suffer with those guns!!

Beautiful!! Love those grips!

All my guns are shooters! I actually did a range report in my Kobra the first time I brought it out, here is the link http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=366355

I'm currently a little over 800 rounds through it now, still without a single FTF. Although the only 1911 I ever had problems with was my Kimber Tactical HD which had a few FTF within the first few hundred rounds fired through it, but has been flawless since. I guess break-in on some guns really do matter.
