Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I think an Ed Brown is every 1911 fans dream to own one day. Whatever I end up getting might end up with some custom work someday. I have an RIA right now that leaves a lot to be desired. I had originally wanted to get some work done to it, but decided that if I'm gonig to spend some money on one, I may as well start out with something decent that might hold its value better.
