They had a few at the gun shop in El Cerrito about a year ago.

Alquist Arms in Turlock also had a Kobra Carry yesterday. Beautiful gun. Listed at $2500.

I bought my Special Forces from Bay Area Gun Vault. They stock that model and the Kobra Carry.

Bay Area Gun Vault has no Ed Browns, and won't be doing business with him anymore. FYI this is the second retailer I have talked to that has decided to no longer carry Ed Brown products.

Because Mr Brown is a dick, and it shows in is customer service. Do some research. I wouldn't support his company...

Wow, I looked up "Ed Brown Customer Service" and there are a lot of posts on a lot of different forums really bad mouthing the CS.

The only Ed Brown part I have is a $30 extended mag release for my 1911. It required fitting, which is weird for such a standard non-firing-group part. (It requires that you press it when inserting a magazine, wherease my very roughly finished RIA stock part works great, but is not extended)

I've used some Ed Brown Parts, bought through vendors, and like them. But, I'll scratch Ed Brown off my list for my next .45 acquisition.

I have a KC and Have a SF on order - I have delt with Justin and Travis at Brown and found the CS to be top notch - If you have questions - go over to 1911forum and join the Ed Brown sub forum.

I know Bullseye and Irvington Arms carry them pretty regularly. I'd give them a call and see what's in stock. As for their customer service, I've never had a problem personally, even with small parts that needed replacing. Items were boxed up and sent over with no questions asked..... and quick too.

Im not going to engage in any slanderous talk. Meerly commenting that two well respected retailers I know of have decided to stop carrying Ed Brown. I can say, it's not due to the quality of the guns.

FWIW I have also heard that their new CS guy does a great job and provides top notch service.

Bullseye is a stocking dealer of Ed Brown pistols. The problem is, as soon as they hit the door they sell within 24-48 hours. We keep a regular order going and you can reserve yours with a 50% deposit.
