2016 Magpul Calendar Coming Soon



It’s that time of year again. We loaded up the cars, bikes, and guns and headed a few hours north to Dallas to meet up with an all-star cast of some of the most beautiful women on the planet and put together a calendar that may just be our best one yet. The Texas sun was unforgivingly hot, but we think you’ll agree that the images that Dixie Dixon captured for us were even more so. The on-set work is all wrapped up, and now we’re working on choosing the best shots and formatting to finish out our 2016 calendar. While you’re waiting for the finished product, here’s a short look at what it took to get the shots and a sneak preview at the amazing girls who will grace the pages.

Ed Brown 2nd Amendment 1911


One of the most important rights protected by the 2nd Amendment is personal and home defense. However, firearm enthusiasts know all too well that the right to “keep and bear arms” is constantly under attack from politicians and activists. Freedom is at the heart of the 2nd Amendment, and we are extremely proud to pay tribute to that freedom with the introduction of the Ed Brown 2nd Amendment 1911.



 This limited edition, 5″ government model, features Snakeskin treatment on the frontstrap and magwell housing, a ledge style rear sight paired with a fiber optic front sight, and a recessed slide stop. The “Don’t Tread On Me” image is engraved on the right sight of the slide, while the left side features the 2nd Amendment text. “Freedom” is engraved on the barrel bushing as a final touch.
A limited number of these guns are being produced. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this tribute to one of the most important freedoms we possess. Contact our sales staff or your local authorized dealer to order.
MSRP $2,995

Gen4 Firearms Coating

Gen4 is latest evolution of thermoset polymer ceramic coating technology, and is now standard on all Ed Brown coated guns. It replaces the popular Gen III coating we have used since 2006.

We have been allowed the unique opportunity to work with the manufacturers of this coating to address our specific needs. These needs included an attractive appearance and better wear properties than existing polymers, but without any loss of the exceptional corrosion protection these coatings offer.

Gen4 is made up of a special formulation that offers the best wear resistance and corrosion protection known to date. Wear is significantly improved over traditional oxide bluing, and is significantly better than older chemistry polymers, including Gen III. Wear is still possible however, and no coating in existence will prevent wear entirely.

The appearance of Gen4 is similar to that of finely finished bead blast bluing, and although it is military quality, you will not have to live with a military appearance. Gen4 is available in black, specially formulated to look identical in color to traditional matte finished bluing. Gen4 is also available in Stealth Grey and Battle Bronze.

Gen4 is available on any Ed Brown handgun already purchased and in service. Download the installation order form for details on sending in an Ed Brown firearm for Gen4 coating.
