Brazos SC Open

Price:  $5,200 (Steel Grip)


More “custom” than “semi,” the Brazos SC (semi-custom) Open gun is a full length (5-inch slide), competition-ready pistol designed specifically for USPSA Open Division shooting.  "Semi Custom" means it is a package deal that includes those features most often requested by shooters wanting an open style pistol. Because these guns are built to a defined set of specifications we are able to offer them at a more affordable price point and with immediate or short delivery time frames.  Available in 9mm, 38 Super, or 38 Super Comp calibers.

All Brazos guns are built exclusively by Bob – no assembly line and no junior/trainee gunsmith working on your pistol.  We use only top quality parts that are hand-fitted and hand tuned to ensure maximum performance and reliability. We manufacture many parts in-house or have them made to our specs by industry leaders.  At the end of the build process each gun is test fired for function and accuracy.  Bob test fires your gun prior to coating and then again after coating.  As a part of the final (after coating) test fire, he sights the gun in so that it is ready to go out of the box.
