Ed Brown Products, Inc. incorporated June of 1992 to manufacture a complete line of 1911 components and accessories. Custom pistol work was no longer being accepted.
In 1998, after manufacturing all the major components of the 1911, Ed's two sons Travis and Wade joined the business full time. A new direction was established - the design and manufacture of a complete line of Ed Brown firearms, to include not only the 1911 but also a proprietary line of bolt-action rifles. The next few years were invested in plant expansion and R&D for the design and manufacture of the Ed Brown 1911 frame, slide, and bolt-action. Years of intensive prototype development and testing required the Brown family to fire thousands of rounds through their new line of 1911's, and hunt hundreds of game animals across the world with their new line of bolt-action rifles.
In January of 2000, the final versions of the Ed Brown frame, slide, and action were ready for manufacture. Ed Brown Custom, Inc. incorporated January of 2000 to manufacture and sell the complete line of Ed Brown bolt action rifles.
In 2001, after selling primarily direct to retail customers, the Brown family began to selectively establish a dealer network across the country for Ed Brown firearms.
