Introducing the E9, the first full size frame in the Evolution series.  Optimized for the 9mm caliber, the E9 is smaller, thinner, and lighter than the Executive Commander.  The E9 retains 100% 1911 controls and handling characteristics, and makes use of standard 1911 magazines.  Some parts were completely re-designed to take advantage of modern improvements such as the new external extractor, easy-to-change front sight, smaller "Tactical Edge" rear sight, bull barrel, and a flat wire recoil spring system. The re-engineered slide has been shortened to 4", thinned substantially for weight reduction, and includes a unique 7-top custom cut, with special front and rear serrations.

Completely hand built with fully machined parts, and backed by our Lifetime Warranty, with all the quality you expect from Ed Brown, but with a ground-breaking price tag, fully equipped!
