For over 50 years, Ed Brown has set the standard for the highest quality 1911 parts and handguns. We've continually looked for ways to improve, taking full advantage of modern technology, and have re-engineered every part in the 1911 to ensure the absolute best performance. So what happens when we apply our philosophy and experience to other handgun platforms? They become "Fueled™ by Ed Brown".
We start with a platform that shares the characteristics we desire - ergonomics, functionality, and reliability. Our first platform of choice for this series is the S&W® M&P® 2.0™. We break it down to its foundation, and begin putting it back together, applying our lifetimes of experience to re-design and re-manufacture each of the key components for optimal performance. The platform becomes "Fueled™ by Ed Brown".
Far beyond gunsmithing, platforms "Fueled™ by Ed Brown" receive a complete overhaul in all categories, detailed below.
CUSTOM ACCURACY RAIL
We start at the heart of this pistol with a fully machined, oversize block that replaces the front rail block fitted into the polymer frame. The Accuracy Rail gives both the slide and the barrel perfectly machined mating surfaces to achieve an exceptional fit. Our expert craftsman painstakingly fit the Accuracy Rail block to substantially improve barrel lockup and accuracy, and greatly reduce the slide to frame rattle common in factory pistols. In simple terms there is just no way to get more accuracy from the platform.
Fully machined from 17-4 Stainless with custom cuts, dehorned, and treated with Black Nitride to give you the hottest custom polymer pistol on the range. Designed for a unique and striking appearance while maintaining functionality, beefed up in all the right areas and ready for hard use, and cut for the Trijicon RMR (matching cover plate included). The perfect high octane custom slide to set your pistol apart from the rest.
A 416 stainless, button-rifled match barrel, with 1-10 twist and 11° target crown. Customized with our own Ed Brown Tread Flutes and available in Black Nitride, or the "Spectrum" multi-colored finish to give it flash under the hood. Our match barrel with traditional rifling will digest jacketed and lead bullets alike, with exceptional accuracy and reliability. To make sure we have included it all, it comes equipped with ½ x 28 threads and a custom thread protector, making it fully suppressor ready.
Re-designed and re-engineered based on 50 years of experience manufacturing completely reliable custom pistols. Mating up perfectly with the custom slide, this extractor will allow you to get the most reliability possible.
Topping off the slide are the Ameriglo Pro-Glo tritium front sight, and plain black rear, both in suppressor ready height to make them co-witness with Trijicon’s RMR reflex sight. Optional Trijicon RMR Type 2 tested and approved reflex sight. The 3.25 MOA dot is perfect for handgun use and its long life makes it ideal for use on the range, or for daily carry. It is simple to adjust and natural to use, quickly becoming an essential option by today’s standards.
We’ve partnered with the best from a company who stands behind their products in an exemplary manner, just like we do. The Apex Tactical trigger gives you the best pull, consistent release and reset, in a combination that will remain safe, and work every time. That is what we demand in our triggers, and Apex delivers.
The Ed Brown Low-profile 360 degree Magwell is engineered to provide a securely mounted magwell that gives you the perfect opening for your reloads. At home on the range or in the holster, it is large enough to allow for the fastest reloads. Fully machined from aluminum and hard anodized for a long service life.
The perfect companions to the Ed Brown Magwell, are the pair of custom machined aluminum base pads. Both are hard anodized for long life and good looks, with one being a low profile, and the second taller profile allowing for more gripping surface, easier manipulation, and additional ammunition capacity.
For over 50 years ed brown has set the standard for the highest quality 1911 parts and handguns. So what happens when we apply our philosophy and experience to other handgun platforms? They become Fueled® by Ed Brown.
The first platform of choice for this series is the Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0. Available in four different options we broke this platform down to its foundation and applied our lifetime of experience to redesign and remanufacture each of its key components.
I have some awesome new guns, I can't wait for you to show me what they can do what do. What do you got because I've got some drills for us to run. I've got the new M&P's Fueled® by Ed Brown Series. They're so awesome!
I'm Bri Van Scotter. I'm a professional chef, hunter and all-around gun enthusiast. Today I'm going to spend some time downrange with my good friend Ian who's going to give me some tips and tricks on gun speed and accuracy and we're going to do some drills.
My name is Ian Matthews. I'm currently in the army. I'm a staff sergeant. I'm a financial management technician, so think of me like a mobile banker. When we go overseas we carry around large sums of cash so we have to be discreet with how we protect that cash so we carry sidearms. So because of my background I train other people as a squad leader and I've helped train friends and family as well.
Here it is. Let's see it. Tell me what you think. All this talk on the way down here, it's got me excited. I've seen them. I think they're pretty badass. Yeah this is that RMR cut you were talking about. The Trijicon sight.
So I'm out here, we're gonna do some pistol training. We're gonna shoot the Ed Brown Series M&P's. We're going to focus on some target shooting and then we're going to go over to the steels to work on some speed and transitions. I'm really excited about it because I personally enjoy training people on firearms.
All black beauty right there. Yep there you, go back in black, you know. All right so this has that that flat trigger you were talking about earlier. I like this so as I'm playing with these you don't get a lot of rattle that you do the some. Yeah. I'm pretty excited because I like M&P's a lot. I own one. I recommend them to friends, so it's cool to see companies taking them to the next level. I'm excited to see what they can do.
All right there we go remember what i showed you? Yep. All right thumb over this hand right there yeah wrist locked elbows bent. Oh! That's okay, that's why we're here, we're gonna practice. It looked like you got a little excited with the trigger. It looked like you went through that wall really quick. It was an easy trigger and I'm pulling a little too hard on it. It is but that's okay. I'm gonna go to the wall yup like you said and then just snap it. I'm gonna snap it. Yep. Let's do this. All right let's go. Look at that, that's a ten ring.
Far beyond gunsmithing to be Fueled® by Ed Brown the M&P pistol is broken down to its foundation for a complete overhaul. At its core is the custom accuracy rail which improves barrel lockup and accuracy allowing for an exceptional fit of the slide frame and barrel. Next is the threaded stainless button rifled match barrel customized with Ed Brown tread flutes and custom thread protector. Combining that with suppressor height sights makes it fully suppressor ready.
All right let's go let's. Compress out go to the wall. Yep. Your support hand and your grip is good. Look at that that's another ten ring. Good job. The slide is fully machined from 17 4 stainless with custom cuts dehorned and treated with a black nitride or stainless finish to give you the hottest custom polymer pistol on the range. Designed for a unique and striking appearance while maintaining functionality, the slide is beefed up in all the right areas and ready for hard use. Each slide is cut for the Trijicon RMR and includes a matching cover plate. So what we're going to do is we're going to engage the target on the left with two rounds and then we're going to shift over to the target on our right and engage that with two rounds. You're going to present and then you're going to drive with your hips and your eyes the gun over to the right target. So in a handgun I'm looking at the red dot sight. I'm looking at the trigger. I like a light trigger, I don't want something that I really have to put a lot of time and effort to to get to the wall or a rolling trigger that is seven pound. I think a trigger should be light but firm so something around the three to four pound range is preferred to me.
Ed Brown uses a custom flat face trigger for the Fueled® Series. A fine upgrade to any M&P. Topping off the slide is the Ameriglo Pro Glow tritium front sight and plain black rear both in suppressor ready height to make them co-witness with Trijicon's RMR reflex sight. A redesigned and re-engineered custom extractor mates perfectly to the custom slide ensuring the best reliability possible. The 360 degree mag well paired with machined base pads make for lightning fast reloads allowing for two extra rounds in the magazine.
The combination of the perfectly machined rail machined trigger pin and a custom trigger give you exceptional performance and reliability. Final details like machined frame pins and its aluminum back plate with custom serrations help complete the package.
You're going to present and then you're going to drive with your hips and your eyes got your gun over to the right target. Okay. You don't let the gun drive you you drive the gun all right harder the target. Gotcha. Anybody can pick up a gun and with enough training be proficient with that gun but that gun has to be comfortable in your hand. There you go look at that a-zone. There you go a-zone again. The Fueled® series is available in four options the MP-F1 finished in black nitride, the MP-F2 features a spectrum multi-colored barrel, the MP-F3 is two-tone with a stainless steel slide and the MP-F4 with a golden titanium nitride barrel. Each one has all the features and quality only Ed Brown can deliver.
I really liked it. I want to add some parts to my own for it. The slide cut is awesome, it's very well done. The tolerances are tight for the RMR. The trigger is very solid the wall is crisp and it's distinct and then it snaps really easy to allow precision shots. The accuracy rail which they're which they engineered is awesome. In addition to the new Fueled® M&P pistols, a full line of fully machined parts and accessories are available for your M&P and M&P 2.0.
So you like the all black and that's the one you pick to shoot but we both talked about how you like the gold. I think I'm going to customize it with that gold barrel. Right I think that's a nice little touch. Yeah so what about you? You own? So I do own one of these yeah. Yeah so you're going to jazz it up with some Ed Brown now? I think I might. So what's going to be your first purchase? Definitely the slide and the mag well and then I'll probably go with the barrel.
Shooting with you was so much fun today. I loved all the pointers you gave me. Shooting these M&P's was a blast it was. So let's definitely get another range day on the books. Let's do it. Thank you for bringing them out.
If you want to get the most from an M&P, make sure it is Fueled® by Ed Brown.
What's up guys it's the Honest Outlaw here, and today we're doing a unique video . We're actually with Ed Brown here. We're gonna be doing a product release with them and we are with John here, who works at Ed Brown. He's one of my friends and brought some of these guns up for us to play with and we're gonna kind of talk about them and shoot them today, and see how they do. So far they've been pretty awesome.
I've shot this particular gun here quite a bit already - a couple hundred rounds already today - and it is an M&P on steroids, to say the least. It has a threaded barrel. It has fluting. This awesome rainbow colored coating with the standard RMR red dot mount are cut in, and it's got probably one of the better slide cuts I've ever seen. Not only is it recessed and super light, you can feel it when you pick it up, but it also has really good texture if you're manipulating the slide.
It comes with an Apex trigger, the standard M&P grip texture, and the magwell which I've been a really big fan of. This magwell is awesome. It's beveled all the way around, better than a $1800 CZ right from the factory. It also comes with the Ed Brown extended baseplate, which not only is good for a little extra capacity, but it's also really good for puling the magazine out and palming the magazine when it comes out of your mag carrier. So it makes your reloads a little bit quicker and a little bit easier, especially with the included magwell. A lot of guys, when they put a magwell on a gun, they don't include base plates, which is just silly to me, because it actually makes the reload harder. It's gotta be able to manipulate it. Yea.
The idea around the Fueled Series was not only to offer you a completely built gun with all of the options and the features, but all of these components will be available individually on our website, so you can build your own Fueled Series. Yea, which is actually really cool. So you can get this guy for around nineteen hundred bucks, nineteen ninety five, and you can have them build it, which I would honestly recommend because coming from my experience, I have a bunch of build M&Ps and I tried their gun and their gun is just better than mine, and that upsets me a little bit. I tried the Apex trigger on this gun and for whatever reason, it's significantly better than the drop-in trigger that I put in mine. I imagine it's a it's included with all of the Ed Brown magic that's put in the slide, if you want to talk about that for a little bit - you want to talk about the accuracy rail that you put in - the block.
One of the interesting things that we did that's groundbreaking is we created an accuracy rail. We took the front rail out of the frame that's original from the factory, which is MIM by the way, and we created a fully machined version that allows you to fir the slide to the frame and also the barrel to both of those that gives you the absolute ultimate in accuracy and reliability.
You'll notice that they don't rattle. Pick up your stock M&P and shake it around and it will rattle. Yeah. These don't rattle. They're hand fit. Can't get any more out of it than that. So one thing I wanted to show is this very uniquely coated barrel and very unique fluting in the barrel - it looks really, really cool. It really caught my eye, this particular gun caught my eye. I also wanted to show you the recoil spring. You guys are going to have not only the stainless steel recoil spring, you guys are going to have the two-piece, right? Coming soon is the two-piece, yeah. So if you want to run a suppressor or you want to run a comp, like that stuff I do all the time, you can switch it out and change different recoil springs and not have to buy a guide rod, which is pretty nice. That'll save you like 40 bucks.
We were talking about this coating, the spectrum coating, is that what you call it? Spectrum coating. Yeah, so they're going to have this available in DLC black available as well, if you want that classic look that is gonna last forever.
So the other thing I want to talk about really quick is the sights that come with a gun. Not only do they come with a mount, but they also come with probably the best sights I've ever seen on a gun as far as suppressor height sights go. They're HD and they're from Ameriglo. They're blacked-out rear with a HD front kind of similar to the Hackathorn sights I run all the time on the channel except now they're suppressor height and they come with the gun if you buy from Ed Brown or you can buy them separately on their website. Every gun also comes with a plate so you don't have to have an RMR so you can just run it without like I probably would cuz I'm a little
old fogey. Ya old stodgy.
I want to talk a little bit about running the actual M&P itself yet about the differences between that and the actual stock gun which I ran a little bit a couple of days ago just for some comparison. I can tell you that right off the bat this gun is gonna be better performing it's not just gonna look better. The trigger itself is gonna make it more accurate if anybody's ever ran a stock M&P the first thing always switches the trigger. This is the best trigger I've ever felt out of an M&P. This is the Apex, which is the best drop-in model I've seen but having Ed Brown put it in there, you can feel that extra little bit of excellence when you actually pull it. Trying not to be cheesy, but it's gonna be lighter, it's gonna be crisper, and you don't sacrifice the return. So when you're trigger, it feels like a 1911 when you're going in, but doesn't go super soggy and slow like some of the custom triggers do. This actually pops right out which helps you maintain speed.
It also has the lightened slide which a lot of people say is just for looks, but it actually reduces the reciprocating mass of the gun so when it comes back, not only does it cycle just a bit faster, but it also doesn't dip down so bad when you're returning. So when the gun comes up and returns it doesn't dip down real bad, that's actually one of the reasons they replaced the recoil spring as well. So the whole gun feels just smoother and faster and it feels like what a gun really should be from the factory. But again can't get that unless you buy it from Ed Brown.
This is probably the one that all of us around there go, "that's cool". Nobody liked the stainless when we first talked about it. Yeah, it looks cool with the contrast. Obviously with the SRO, you guys are running the new SRO, as well which is the first time people will be seeing it on this channel. Yeah, I never really shot it because it's not zeroed, and I'm lazy.
Only have two hundred rounds through this gun so far, but it's been super reliable. It show any signs of being unreliable. You know some guns are kind of sticky here and there, but this gun came out and it was ready to go already which felt really good. You shot an incredible mix of ammo through it too. mixed bag of ammo through it. I did. Yeah, that's the other thing I want to talk about. When I shot 200 rounds, I shot some 115, some Federal 150 grain syntex, which is totally different, and they had totally different arcs when I was shooting it long distance. It was pretty funny too. It's got a cool thump when it hits a dirt berm. Yeah, it sounded like a 45 when it hit. Those old 45 guys are gonna get a kick from that one. Thump.
So I got the Ed Brown M&P out here and the Federal 150 grain ammo which is a little new for me at distance, but we'll kind of an arc up a little and play around with it.
With the same recoil spring it ran from 115 all the way to 150 from like 900 fps and down oh whatever that 150 is 30 I think. I think I can throw stuff further, like a rock. And it ran perfectly. So I'm happy about that. Overall, I think these guns not only look god, but they actually function really well. And we're doing a little thing with Ed Brown here, where I'm just testing them for the, and we're doing kind of promotional stuff, but I'm actually gonna get one of these for a full review and we're gonna put a thousand rounds through one of these.

And you can go over there like I said and you can find any of the individual parts you want. If you want the slide or you just want the barrel. Like I know we were talking about this rainbow colored barrel which I've been in love with since you showed up. And you said they're going to be available for Glocks too. And I'm already gonna get one to put in my 34, which is a big thing on my channel. I shoot that gun all of the time. So stay tuned for more Ed Brown on the channel. We're gonna be doing a bunch of stuff with them in the future, including the M&P stuff. I know you guys were a big fan of the EVO series I showed off a little while ago, and I'm such a huge fan I can't wait to get more of those.
For some reason I was hoping they would slide through with the thread protector on. The hole is not that big. Story of my life. [Laughter]
What do they call that stuff? The mind is a terrible thing to waste. Well, it starts going when you get older. It does, doesn't it. [Laughter] Thanks buddy.
