    I received it last Friday but unfortunately I won't be able to shoot it until this weekend.

    I am fortunate to have the very first Custom Elite made by South Fork Arms. It was well worth the wait.

    Just had to show it off. :grin:

    Jason Perkins has been a very successful gunsmith for a number of years and has customized many of my pistols and rifles. He also made 1911' for select customers on an as ordered basis. Last summer he made a decision to put his gunsmithing business on hold and decided to start making 1911's full-time. It took him quite a while to get all of the permits etc that were needed. That is the main reason I am just now getting my pistol.

    He is a fanatic about even the smallest details. Everything must be exactly perfect or a gun does not leave his shop. When he told me he was going to start making them full-time I immediately placed my order. Needless to say I'm very pleased I did.

    The pistol looks really nice, but the color case-hardened frame is awesome :thumb:
