From the newsletter:
New! Special Forces II
For those who want something attractive and aggressive, the Special Forces II from Ed Brown Products fits the bill like no other. Built for pure performance and extreme use, and featuring our new Chainlink II pattern, the Special Forces II has everything you need for serious performance. As this is a new series, every version of the original Special Forces we produce, will be available in a Special Forces II version with the Chainlink II. The original line of Special Forces handguns with the original Chainlink will also continue to be available.
California residents will be pleased to hear we intend to submit a similar model for California certification in 2013. Provided it is approved by the CA authorities, we will send another newsletter announcing it’s availability in California.
If you have a Special Forces currently on order and are interested in changing to the Special Forces II, this may be possible if you ordered after October 1, 2012. We will allow a grace period till the end of 2012 to change your order to the new model. The cost to make the change is $50.
