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.

.....A bunch.....but I am a dealer and that kind of comes with the territory. Gotta buy em' to sell em'. That being said, I think this one is going into my personal collection.

Wade.....that Mil-Spec came out smokin'!!!! Chuck did a killer job on that blaster. When are you getting that?

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.

It looks awesome I'm curious to know how this gun compares to some of your other semi customs in a similar price range. :cool:

Ask Dave's wife. She personally tests all of his customer's semi-customs. :rofl:

Nice looking gun. Interesting front strap treatment. It looks like the texturing gets slightly more aggressive towards the center.

I sent this link to Dave Berryhill. He wanted me to pass this message along to everyone.....

"Tell them that it isn't a pink towel. It's a burgundy 5.11 Tactical Bath
Towel that has faded :D"

......That is some funny stuff!!

That is funny.

It would only have been better had he said that it was originally a white shop towel and he just couldn't get all the blood out of it after his last dust-up.
