It can be had in either stainless steel as well as carbon.....

SS may be left in the 'white' or may be coated in any of the colors of Gen 4 offered by Brown, including two tone.

In carbon steel it my be either blued in a traditional rust bluing process or may also be be coated in the various Gen 4 colors.

You can also get a ss frame with a blued carbon steel slide.....non of these effect price.


(one note, if you get a two tone Gen 4 combo there is a upcharge, of $100, this is not really for the two tone color, but rather they use the VZ carbon fiber grip panels on these ).

Bluing question KC

I've got a two-tone (blue slide/stainless frame) Kobra Carry.

Is it possible to re blue this pistol to a high polish finish? I was thinking about Turnbull. I've seen their work and I've love my Brown to have such a finish.

Appreciate any suggestions/guidance.

Yes, it is certainly possible to re-blue the slide with a high polish finish. Brown offers such a high polish finish, too. We don't see it a lot here but I'm sure there have been some photos taken. Turnbull's finish is obviously top notch.

SS is generally not able to be blued by traditional methods...however I seem to recall someone mentioning there was a process to do it now, but traditionally the answer is no.

While we're on the topic of finishes...

What is the "default" material for Gen 3/4 Browns? I bought a stealth gray Special Forces in 2012 (through Jerry), so I'm assuming it is Gen 3. I never specified either way, but I am curious if my gun is stainless or carbon. I ask because I am considering having it blued to a high polish in the future. Thanks in advance!
