I spoke with Ed Brown CS and they have put the Special Forces with Rail on hiatus for the time being. No time frame was available to when the rail option would return. Confirmed via a discussion thread on another board site.
Wanted a Stealth Gray with rail but was able to find this one on GB.
Thanks to ARFCOM member Pain for input on mounting a suppressor like on his Special Forces.
Broke her in on a 42 round outlaw 3-gun meet after cleaning and relubing out of the box. No jams , no nothing Gun just ran.
Money well spent. Extremely pleased.
This 1911 ARFCOM Sub Forum gets expensive very fast , seeing and wanting things some of you have is making my wallet scream.
Pic is with TiRant 45 attached. Used the Factory Brown Barrel for the 3 gun.
No . I have been practicing to " shoot through" the can and been fairly successful.
Well, that sucks.
I guess I didn't have any immediate plans to buy one, though....
Lol, every gun my step brother buys ends up going away.
First was the SA 1911 GI model that they discontinued for now
next was an FDE G19
then was his Ed Brown Special Forces with rail....he just got a Dan Wesson Guardian that I love and want badly so they better not get rid of it....but I'm waiting to hear they have been discontinued any second now.
Seriously awesome 1911, btw!
