Well, I went and picked up my Special Forces Carry today, and I love it. The Gen 3 finish is outstanding, slide to frame fit is perfect, the trigger is crisp with minimal creep or take up. The pistol is by far the nicest 1911 I have ever had or felt, seems like it melts in my hands, the slim grips are great. I love the chainlink checkering, the 10-8 sites and XS front sight provide easy pickup of the target. This is one of my dream guns, words can't describe how pleased I am with this pistol. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet but will tomorrow evening and will post more pics then. I hope it shoots as good as it looks and feels.
