Ed Brown Compact


New for 2017, the Ed Brown Compact is based on an Ed Brown compact (Officer's) size frame, with a Commander length (4.25" slide) for maximum reliability and concealability with a shorter frame. While smaller on the outside, it's still a workhorse on the inside, using 100% Ed Brown fully-machined premium components, and hand-fitted to the Ed Brown forged frame and slide. The front strap and mainspring housing are tastefully checkered at 25 LPI to give a secure grip. Our fixed black rear sight and red fiber optic front sight make for a high visibility front sight and allows for changing the color. Checkered laminate wood grips complete the model for a classy, traditional look that will hold up over years of use. For those who prefer the shorter Officer's size frame, the Ed Brown Compact is the perfect choice for a compact carry pistol.


Available Calibers:  9mm (Stainless slide only),  45 ACP
Barrel Length:  4.25"
Weight: approximately 37 ounces with an unloaded magazine inserted
