PERRY, MO –-(Ammoland.com)- Ed Brown Products, Inc. is proud to release the KC9 as the first new model in the Evolution Series of pistols.
Nearly 20 years ago the Kobra Carry took the industry by storm giving the world the first look at the Ed Brown Bobtail, which later became the most widely copied option on the 1911. The combination of Snakeskin treatment and the Ed Brown Bobtail are now legendary and are fully incorporated into the KC9, the first model in the Evolution Series. Completely optimized for 9mm, the KC9 is smaller, thinner, and lighter than its predecessor. The new pistol retains the comfortable and proven 1911 controls, so there are no new muscle memories to develop. The KC9 retains the standard 1911 grips, provided they are cut for the Ed Brown Bobtail®, which are now available virtually everywhere, and ships with the Ed Brown Exclusive Labyrinth Grips to make for a great looking package. Some parts were completely re-designed to take advantage of modern improvements such as the new external extractor, easy-to-change front sight, smaller ledge-style rear sight, bull barrel, and a flat wire recoil spring system. The re-engineered slide has been shortened to 4″, thinned substantially for weight reduction, and includes a unique 7-top custom cut, with special front and rear serrations. A recessed slide stop completes the package, making for the perfect custom 9mm 1911.
Like all other Ed Brown 1911’s, the KC9 is hand-built from fully machined components, loaded with custom features, and backed by a written Lifetime Warranty. What is also unique is the ground-breaking price. These pistols will be built in small, custom, identical batches, utilizing all latest in machining equipment and techniques to get every last bit of efficiency from the build process. The result is an MSRP of $1895, which is a 30% savings as compared to a one-off custom built to order.
Sales and Marketing Director John May said, “We have made it our goal to make Ed Brown the first choice in custom 1911s. Why settle for less, when you can own the best! This is another step to make sure that our customers have the best quality product, at the best possible price. Just one more reason, if you have not looked at Ed Brown in a while, it is time to Look Again!”
