It's a Ed Brown Kobra Carry with press check cuts on the slide.

Best to set up a photobucket account (free) post your pictures there (no size limit) and then link them to your post like I did above.

Same as a full size 1911 which is 8+1 (with the right mags).

When you upload your image to photobucket and you see it there if you look at the bottom there is a small window and when you put your mouse over it the URL will appear. You just click on that url and it copies to your clipboard in windows.

Then you come here or wherever you want to post the image and just do a right click anywhere in your message and click paste.

The picture will now show in your post, once posted.

but I really did not know about the photobucket thing...that is really neat..and I can not believe it's free!

Well, as you can see I have a 1911, but as soon as I saw yours, I want that one!

My dad has a FNP 45 and I feel in love with it!

Thank you AEA. I have attempter over a couple of years to post an image to no avail. Your instructions are “on the spot”. Works as advertised.

You can have one just like it for around 2500.00 and 6 Months wait from Ed Brown. Or, you might get lucky and find one on the shelf in some LGS.

I just noticed it was removed! I'll repost soon. I really appreciate you showing me photobucket. The 2500 is a little out of the budget, but someday!

Want to trade? You have seen the pics of my gun?!?!? "rlol"

AEA, I'm still trying to figure out if you were really trying to help somebody with your OP, or were you just showing off that gorgeous 1911 what the philistines in the Glock camp could never appreciate. :smilelol5:
