Smooth

I've been digging the round butt commanders lately. Have a Kimber Master Carry Pro and a Sig Nightmare. I put flat wire recoil springs in both pistols, had the trigger tuned up on the Kimber, put Heine straight eight sights and a EGW heavy duty extractor on the Sig, its trigger was actually very nice.
Just yesterday I traded a rare revolver for an Ed Brown Executive Carry, it looked like it has never been shot. Smooth as silk! Can't wait to get it out and see how it runs, at first blush it won't need anything done to it. This pistol is definitely a cut above the others. Which would be reflective of the value. Very happy.

I do love my Browns! Congratulations on a pistol I'm sure you will cherish.

Sounds like you've got a nice collection going. I've got 2 Ed Brown 1911s and I really like both of them. They are fantastic pistols.

Got it to the range this afternoon, very impressive. Super accurate and not a single malfunction of any kind. This is the only pistol I own that rips one big jagged hole. I've got revolvers that can but the Ed Brown is a shoot the eyes out 1911 for sure and certain! Love it!
Thanks for all the kind posts fellows. EB rocks!

Indeed, the Browns are smooth as silk. I fell in love with my Kobra Carry the very first time I shot it.

The EB will put a smile on your face with each squeeze of the trigger. There’s magic in that EB metal.

I've got a EB Special Forces. The first time I shot the gun I said out loud on the range, "This is something special". A great gun.

Congrats on your Brown. They're very special guns!!

There are times I think my Browns are on autopilot. No matter how badly I shoot, it seems to do its best to find the bull.

I am very satisfied, even excited about my Special Forces. Very smooth and accurate it is. Enjoy your EB, it should be a keeper.
