Ed Brown Fueled Pistol Series – New for 2020

Starting with a platform with desired characteristics - ergonomics, functionality and reliability – and applying their philosophy and experience, these custom pistols become ‘Fueled by Ed Brown.'

For over 50 years, Ed Brown developed and built high-quality 1911 parts and handguns. They continually look for ways to improve, taking full advantage of modern technology, and have re-engineered every part in the 1911 to ensure the absolute best performance. So, what happens when they apply their philosophy and experience to other handgun platforms? They become "Fueled by Ed Brown".

The company starts with a platform with desired characteristics - ergonomics, functionality, and reliability. Their first platform of choice for this series is the S&W M&P 2.0. They broke it down to its foundation, and begin putting it back together, applying lifetimes of experience to re-design and re-manufacture each of the key components for optimal performance. The platform becomes "Fueled by Ed Brown".

Far beyond gunsmithing, platforms "Fueled by Ed Brown" receive a complete overhaul in all categories, detailed below.

Custom Accuracy Rail

They start at the heart of this pistol with a fully machined, oversize block that replaces the front rail block fitted into the polymer frame. The Accuracy Rail gives both the slide and the barrel perfectly machined mating surfaces to achieve an exceptional fit. Expert craftsman painstakingly fit the Accuracy Rail block to substantially improve barrel lockup and accuracy, and greatly reduce the slide to frame rattle common in factory pistols. In simple terms, there is just no way to get more accuracy from the platform.


Custom Slide

Fully machined from 17-4 Stainless with custom cuts, dehorned, and treated with Black DLC to give you the hottest custom polymer pistol on the range. Designed for a unique and striking appearance while maintaining functionality, beefed up in all the right areas and ready for hard use, and cut for the Trijicon RMR (matching cover plate included). The perfect high-octane custom slide to set your pistol apart from the rest.


Custom Barrel

A 416 stainless, button-rifled match barrel, with 1-10 twist and 11° target crown. Customized with their own Ed Brown Tread Flutes and available in Black DLC, or the "Spectrum" multi-colored finish to give it flash under the hood. Our match barrel with traditional rifling will digest jacketed and lead bullets alike, with exceptional accuracy and reliability. To make sure they have included it all, it comes equipped with ½ x 28 threads and a custom thread protector, making it fully suppressor ready.

Custom Extractor

Re-designed and re-engineered based on 50 years of experience manufacturing completely reliable custom pistols. Mating up perfectly with the custom slide, this extractor will allow you to get the most reliability possible.

Custom Sights

Topping off the slide are the Ameriglo Pro-Glo tritium front sight, and plain black rear, both in suppressor ready height to make them co-witness with Trijicon’s RMR reflex sight. Optional Trijicon RMR Type 2 tested and approved reflex sight. The 3.25 MOA dot is perfect for handgun use and its long life makes it ideal for use on the range, or for daily carry. It is simple to adjust and natural to use, quickly becoming an essential option by today’s standards.

Custom Trigger

They’ve partnered with one the best from a company who stands behind their products in an exemplary manner. The Apex Tactical trigger gives you the best pull, consistent release and reset, in a combination that will remain safe, and work every time.


Custom Magwell

The Ed Brown Low-profile 360-degree Magwell is engineered to provide a securely mounted magwell that gives you the perfect opening for your reloads. At home on the range or in the holster, it is large enough to allow for the fastest reloads. Fully machined from aluminum and hard anodized for a long service life.

Custom Baseplate

The perfect companions to the Ed Brown Magwell, are the pair of custom machined aluminum base pads. Both are hard anodized for long life and good looks, with one being a low profile, and the second taller profile allowing for more gripping surface, easier manipulation, and additional ammunition capacity.

Custom Machined Pins

Turned on Swiss type machines, and allowing for the ultimate in precision fit, and easy disassembly and re-assembly, these pins are an essential complement to getting the most out of the Ed Brown Accuracy Rail.


Custom Slide Backplate

Custom machined from aluminum and hard anodized, available with custom serrations, these are the perfect high-end replacement for the plastic piece found on factory pistols.

Guns & Ammo TV: Cameras Don't Lie: 9mm vs .45 ACP

The age-old question, 9mm vs .45 ACP. For some, this has been asked and answered already. For others, the debate goes on. In this segment of “Cameras Don't Lie,” competitive shooters Patrick Sweeney and Jim Tarr head to the range to put the vaunted loads on record, and then consider the footage.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
