Ed Brown Products recently announced the release of its newest pistol, one honoring the United States Special Operations Command. Based on the company’s Special Forces SR model, Ed Brown released the Special Forces SOCOM 1911.
Ed Brown Special Forces SOCOM Features
The SOCOM utilizes fully machined components and is loaded with features, making it ready for hard use, befitting its name. The 1911 features American flag rear cocking serrations, while the slide finish is black Gen4 coating. Meanwhile, the Gen4 lower features an FDE finish.
The Special Forces SOCOM features a Trijicon RMR with hard-anodized coyote brown finish. SOCOM selected the Trijicon RMR as its Handgun Reflex Sight following extensive testing and evaluation. That makes the RMR Type 2 a great choice here, one highly reliable and durable for handgun applications. Front and rear night sights co-witness with the optic.
An external light rail allows for the attachment of accessories. A one-piece magwell, contoured and hand blended, mates with VZ Alien grips. The black nitride barrel features an FDE thread protector and is suppressor ready. A tactical profile thumb safety delivers a shape that is comfortable for shooting, according to Ed Brown. A Tactical Edge slide stop, engraved slide and two, eight-round Ed Brown Performance Magazines in black nitride round out the package.
“Our Special Forces pistols have been leading the industry for decades. I am so pleased to be able to offer the SOCOM Edition to pay homage to the great men and women of the Special Operations Command,” said John May, sales and marketing director, Ed Brown Products. “The SOCOM Edition is another example of us listening to our customers and pushing the boundaries of the custom 1911 market. If you have not looked at Ed Brown in a while, it’s time to look again!”
