AFP (Advanced Fighting Pistol) – Modern Self-Defense Pistol

The AFP (Advanced Fighting Pistol) is my idea of a modern self-defense pistol.  This 1911 is built to be reliable, accurate and ergonomic.  This pistol has heavier chamfering on the edges than my other pistols but it still retains the classic lines of the pistol and is not “melted.”  Here are the standard specs for the pistol and plenty of options are available to customize it to suit your tastes.
