Tormach Owner Stories: SDM Fabricating Custom Pistols

by: Andrew Grevstad

Pistolsmith, talented craftsman, and Tormach PCNC 1100 owner Scott Mulkerin of SDM Fabricating (Medina, OH) makes -among many, many other things – customized 1911 and Smith & Wesson pistols for competition shooters.

Among his honors, Scott was named Pistolsmith of the Year in 2011 by the American Pistolsmiths Guild-the top recognition award in his craft.  He was also part of a consortium of pistolsmiths that presented the GWB-USA-1 pistol to a very special VIP.  You’ll have to watch the video to find out who that was…
