Manufacturer’s Description

The Ed Brown Krypteia is a full-size, 1911-style pistol built on a steel frame and chambered in .45 ACP. The company built this limited-edition gun in collaboration with Krypteia Strategies, a military and law enforcement training company. Ed Brown says Krypteia Strategies gathered pistol-related information, feedback and opinions from military and law enforcement units, and then used that info to spec out this handgun.
