    I got an email from Dave tonight with some pictures of my just completed Advanced Fighting Pistol. It looks pretty nice. I have never seen Dave's work firsthand, but I have read a lot of postive feedback on his work. This build is done on a Caspian frame and Slide. He also did a rounded butt and flush cut slide stop. I am liking what I am seeing so far. What do you guys think?

    Here are the specs:
    - Caspian slide and frame
    - Berryhill Ultimate Ultimate Commander hammer, sear and disconnector
    - 4 lb. trigger job
    - Medium solid match trigger with permanent overtravel stop
    - 10-8 rear sight
    - Dovetail tritium front sight with a white ring around the tritium
    - Stainless steel match barrel.
    - Stainless steel EGW thick barrel bushing with beveled edge, fit finger tight to the slide
    - Muzzle cut flush with bushing and crowned
    - Berryhill forged slide stop
    - Tuned for reliability with a bar stock extractor and oversized firing pin stop
    - Wilson Bullet Proof thumb safety.
    - S&A beavertail grip safety
    - Scallops on front strap with high grip cut under trigger guard
    - Flat steel mainspring housing with scallops and round butt
    - Lowered and flared ejection port
    - Bar stock ejector and plunger tube
    - EGW hardened pin set
    - Wolf 16 lb recoil spring and heavy duty firing pin spring
    - Micarta grips
    - Heavy chamfer on external edges while maintaining the original lines
    - Matte blue with the sides of the slide polished

    Spectacular bro. I really like the contrast of the black frame & slide against a stainless barrel & trigger. Looks really classy!

    That's beautiful Dave.

    I almost bought an AFP off of him earlier this year.

    I think I got on the list around this time last year. I was going to send him a SA Mil-Spec for a base gun, but he was already working on this pistol and it was available. We discussed some changes that could still be made and a few weeks later, it is done. I think he is backed up about 6 months right now....

    I'm not really sure. He is going to re-finish my Heritage and Guardian , then ship them all back to me at the same time.

    I think the pistol is just about perfect. I don't much care for the pink backdrop though, it's not befitting a fighting gun.
