Custom Ed Brown 1911 .45 cal

Whos got one? What do you think about it? Likes, dislikes?
Pretty sure I'm going to add this one to my safe.

Edit: Crap, the link keeps reverting to the main page. click on handguns and then look for the Dave Champion Molon Labe limited edition.

Kimbers are ok...although i have a buddy who bought a .308 rifle from them and he would give it away right about now. It shoots ALL over the place and hes sent it back in 3-4 times. Also misfires a LOT.
Kimber is still a production gun. Ed Browns are not. A step above.

I was actually referring to the Ed brown 1911's
they are about 2-3 times higher than a kimber

I shot a friend of mine's Brown. TBH, it felt like most higher end production guns. It shot better than I can shoot, but again, that holds true for most higher end production guns.

With that said, the fit and finish was awesome.
