Perryton, TX- Republic Forge, manufacturer of world-class, truly American made Model 1911 pistols, is excited to announce that Joseph Von Benedikt, of Santaquin, Utah, has won Republic Forge’s first “Build It To Win It” Media Contest that took place at the 2015 SHOT Show. Randomly drawn alongside numerous entries, Mr. Von Benedikt will be awarded his very own, custom 1911!

The “Build It To Win Contest” created quite a buzz at last week’s SHOT Show. Media personnel were asked to visit Republic Forge’s show floor booth or Industry Day shooting lane, demo or “Build Their Own” 1911 utilizing Republic Forge’s cutting-edge website technology, and leave behind their business card.

Republic Forge doesn’t plan to stop yet. For Republic Forge Facebook fans, a “Build It To Win It” Consumer contest is coming soon!

Each Republic Forge pistol is handcrafted from start to finish by one gunsmith, one gun at a time. Whether for personal protection, law enforcement, competition or collectors of fine firearms; Republic Forge offers the ultimate handgun for any application.
