Ed Brown releases the Jeff Cooper Tribute for 2019


The Jeff Cooper Tribute Pistol just released built based on input from Cooper's students, followers, and family. This is an updated return to remind the current converts to the faithful slab-sides what the Great Jeff Cooper means to those of us who have loved it for years and to the modern art of employing the pistol as well. Available for a limited time and with or without a complete package creating the compete tribute package. Check it out and get yours on order to get on the list as soon as possible. For those of you that purchased the first tribute we did over 10 years ago the supporting package is available as well. For all Jeff Cooper fans the grips for this tribute are also available as a stand along purchase for those of you that just want the finishing touch for another favorite pistol. Check them all out at www.edbrown.com/cooper

I have the 2008 model. Are there any differences in the pistols?

I dig it, looks just like the previous JC tribute pistol. Itís a handsome pistola, not overdone and looks rather distinguished. Good job by Brown!

One of the most interesting announcements in a while from my perspective. Now if I could go back and get a 100th anniversary I'd be all set.

Price is much higher now than when we bought ours. We got a bag, new version is in a box.

Original has a three hole trigger. Grips slightly different cut. Wider looping J in Jeff on the slide or the re-release. (which was his real signature) Original was all Black, not black and gray. Original did not have a gold bead front sight.

I have two, one I shoot and one mint, I'll keep them over this.

Makes you wonder for future purchases. They said one year build then out of production. But 11 years later bring it back. Question, is the collector value still there. Otherwise why buy a comemorative to begin with?

Front strap treatment is different, chainlink one vs checkering.

Good observation! I like the checkering better.

Regarding Jim's 2008 version, here's that version for those that are unfamiliar with it. Both 2008 and 2019 are winners to me>>>

It just seems like the frame should have been hard chromed, what with all the photos of him holding such a pistol...

Pretty pistol, however....

I like it. A couple of changes from the previous iteration, both improvements IMO. Front strap checkering instead of chain link, and it looks like EB straightened out the lines where the trigger guard meets the frame.
