Thank you very much....
Yes, the scales are indicative of the EB Kobra model. They are actually supposed to be snake scales (but they look like fish scales or snake scales).
They are great because they are only 'grippy' from one direction. If you slide your hand across them the other direction - they are smooth.
The trigger is a 10-8 Inc (Hilton Yam) Flat Trigger that I had installed by EB during the build. It is awesome as no matter where your finger impacts or contacts the trigger - the rearward pull distance is the same or equal. I also have a Springfield Armory loaded model 1911 and I have just purchased/installed/fitted a 10-8 flat trigger on it as well. Once I went the flat trigger route, there was no going back!
All of this said - I do not mean to say that I think Ed Brown is 'better' or 'superior' to Wilson (just because I own an EB). You cannot go wrong with any of these brands (Wilson, Baer, EB and/or Nighthawk) - all are awesome. If I was buying right now - I would actually choose a Wilson because I want a 9mm on a 1911 frame (but a commander size w/bobtail for concealability). EB will not/does not have or make a 9mm 1911 offereing. However, I will probably just go with a Dan Wesson Guardian as the pricetag is a bit more managable.
