What are your opinions on this 1911? I want a high end 1911 and this one looks very good in design. How about function and reliability?

Havenít seen this at the Angeles Range before. Thanks!

First of all... let me say that I'm not an owner. I do own and enjoy high end 1911's, just not Ed Browns (for no particular reason, I just don't happen to own one)

Ed Brown makes fine 1911's, and the Kobra Carry is nice. However, why wouldn't you spend your money on a full-size gun? If you're in LA County, I can only assume that you don't have a CCW, and personally, I wouldn't want to carry such a heavy gun all day anyway (nor would I carry such an expensive gun!). If the gun is for fun/paper punching/home defense, why not get a full size?

But, if the Kobra Carry is what you want, buy with confidence as it's a great gun. Personally, I don't care for the slip-fit sights, and I prefer the tighter fitment of a Les Baer, but Ed Brown is just as good... just different.
