ED BROWN 1911 TACTICAL UPGRADE KITS
In a clever move Brownells has begun offering weapon performance upgrades in a kit form for most popular weapon platforms. This will certainly help take the guesswork out of some of the selection process as well as save the shooter some cash.
- Memory Groove Beavertail Grip Safety – Ed Brown’s exclusive, deep-hold grip safety drops the gun farther into the hand plus, the three memory grooves on the lower portion guides the web of the hand into the correct grip position. Raised surface area helps depress the safety and ensure positive disengagement, even for a shooter that uses a high-thumb hold.
- Tactical Safety – Thinner thumb pads with the famous Ed Brown angle and slope. Works with the natural, sweeping motion of the thumb for a faster, easier safety release. Trimmed down style is lighter and more comfortable when used on concealed carry guns or with full coverage holsters. Meets all requirements for U.S.P.S.A. Limited Class.
- Extended Tactical Magazine Catch – Permits quicker and easier magazine changes. Compact enough to fit carry holsters and not snag on clothing. Standard diameter button with crisp, machine cut checkering is .060″ longer than stock for easier thumb purchase. Positive internal stop prevents over-pushing and jamming magazine in place. Machined from bar stock and heat treated for durability. Does not include catch lock and spring.
- Hardcore Slide Stop – Pin is machined to maximum dimensions for a tighter lockup and increased accuracy. Oversize lip gives positive, last round engagement. Specially heat-treated steel gives unlimited service; includes Ed’s LIFETIME GUARANTEE.
