Don't you just hate it when you decide to buy up and people say buy down? Happens to me all the time.Anyone out there suggest why I should buy an Ed Brown Special Forces over a Les Brown SRP or Premier 11 Super Tac? I should mention that I'm new to 1911s though I have a variety of revolvers in various calibers. Thanks.
Owning both brands,I would recommend EB.While I have never had a problem with my LB,and it will shoot rings around my EB(IT SHOULD FOR WHAT I PAID)I think that the EB (Kobra Carry)is much more ergonomic for a CCW type of firearm.I have shot a couple of LB Commanche 45's,and even though they are the same size as the Kobra Carry,they just aren't as "smooth"(Even with their Tactical melt).Both are high quality,but the EB has it over them in overall finish.Either way,you won't lose!
If you choose a LB,be prepared to shoot at least 500 rds to break it in.Les builds pistols like race car engines,you have to break them in properly!
