South Ridge Arms is a company that specializes in custom 1911 pistols, KG GunKote finishes, and parkerization.  We service the greater Seattle, Tacoma region and for those of you further out, we take mail orders. We only use the highest quality parts, the most durable finishes available and stand behind every product we sell and gunsmith.


Dave Nielson specializes in gunsmithing military and police firearms while placing emphasis on aesthetics, reliability and function of all of the weapons he builds or works on. He offers a series of concealed carry packages for 1911 pistols that include bobtailed main spring housings, machine-scalloped front straps and custom trigger work.


The refinishing services South Ridge Arms offer are some of the best the industry has to offer. We place great faith in KG GunKote Phenolic resin, matte ceramic finishes and offer a parkerized undercoating should you feel your weapon needs the extra treatment. KG GunKote was designed to protect firearms from harsh saltwater environments, yet be durable enough to withstand the high temperatures of prolonged weapon operation, and has high abrasive resistance to protect your working gun from high stress environments. Be it your concealed carry piece or your duty weapon, you can trust KG Gunkote to take whatever you can dish out without worrying about flaking or chipping like other gun refinishing products.
