Ed Brown Products unveiled a brand new 1911 series chambered in 9mm known as the FX1.

The FX1, fully machined and hand built in the U.S., boasts a 4.25-inch Commander barrel on a single, stack Government frame with integral light rail. The gun supplies a ledge style, .156-inch U-notch rear sight paired with a red fiber optic front sight.

The 1911 drops some stylish flare with American flag serrations on the right side of the slide, topping off the stainless steel slide with square cut cocking serrations on the left. The sleek styling continues with the new FX1 Snakeskin frontstrap treatment coupled with VZ Alien grips. The FX1 series is all about custom flare though, according to Ed Brown Products, who offers over 100 custom options for the pistol. Some of these include: FX1 slide cuts, slide ports, recessed slide stop with serrated pin, one-piece magwell and flush barrel with recessed crown.

“When you consider that the Kobra Carry was introduced almost 20 years ago now, you can see that we are trend setters in custom handguns, it is just in the companies DNA,” said Ed Brown’s Sales and Marketing Director John May in a press release. “This pistol is a game changer and will be the new standard by which others will be judged and once again a reminder that we are a force to be reckoned with!”

The FX1 ships in two color options — Industrial and Dirty Olive Gen 4. Industrial provides a modern brushed stainless steel while the Dirty Olive Gen 4 is a two-color process that gives the gun a “urban look.”

Base price on the new digs comes in at a whopping $3,875.
