OK-- 4TC1s has been test-fired. Friend Eli is back from his deployment and came over to do the honors with his Uncle, a veteran of patrolling the rivers of Viet Nam in a PBR. Both guys had some great stories, but the bottom line is that the pistol has been officially test fired by a pair of vets and "all three" did the job well. CorBon 165's, 230's, and 185 DPX had shown themselves to be good stuff in pre-refinish test firing. I did a little more of this that I normally might since there were three extractors to test, as well as two safeties, two firing pins, two firing pin stops, etc.

Post-refinish test firing will be kept to a minimum-- I think fewer than 40 rounds. Based on yesterday's results I do need to move the rear sight over a few thousandths but groups are still well under 2" at 28 yards (some running much better). Uncle edged Eli out in group size but both guys were totally safe and competent with the pistol despite Eli having zero trigger time on a pistol since before his deployment. Eli lived with his M4 throughout his deployment but no Beretta was issued. Well, that empty space was put to GREAT use anyway, being filled by the 100-round Beta-C drum magazine for the M4, given to him by this same uncle prior to leaving. I was surprised to learn that nobody up the chain of command had an objection to it, looks like good sense won one. 100 rounds of 5.56 in place of 30-some rounds of 9mm? Good trade in my book!

The Nossar rig is ready! Alex, you've out done yourself I think...... this stuff is epic. I can't wait to get my hands, eyes, and nose on this set..... give the mule plenty of coffee and a major crack of the whip, and get these beauties up here, will ya?

Dates are reversed as per how it's done outside the US, in other words, "8/12/07" means "12/8/07". Alex informs me that despite how things look in the pics, all components of the rig are the same clor (black).

The sheath for the Chris Reeve knive in all its glory.......

Edge view, showing how it attaches to the belt, Since the Safariland duty rig will not come with a sheath for the knife I reckon Alex’s can do double duty.

As to the Safariland duty rig, I spoke with Scott Carnahan there who is, I think, VP of police and military sales.... we decided rather than pick a rig for the winner, to give the winner a certificate and let him pick it himself.... that cert. is here along with a Safariland catalog.

By the way, that inner sheath for the Reeve knife is Kydex. I thought that wasa clever way of putting it together-- Kydex on the inside to resist getting cut up, sharkskin on the outside to match the set.

I hereby officially and publicly take back everything bad I ever said about Alex :shock:

Bolt, consider it done. Leaving right now for the adult store to get your "base gun" . You did say sexy :D

Friend Henk Iverson has given us a hand in his newsletter:
http://www.striketactical.com/newsletter/

Yes, I spelled "Henk" right :P . He has contributed to the prize package you might notice. Henk's classes are intense and I believe will benefit anyone who's into learning to shoot, no matter what level they may already be at.

Do you have any idea when this feature was added? Are there many subtle features like this on early military issue type pistols? I just think back to the army considering the Luger against the 1911. The complexities of a Luger would seem to warrant all kinds of subtle design changes like this to make them field serviceable. Do you think all of the 1911 manufacturers today know why that feature is there, or do they just copy what they've always seen?

To paraphrase manyof the envelopes in my inbox, "LAST NOTICE" :lol:

Today, January 27th 2008, is the last day you can buy tickets to this raffle over the net. Sales close tonight and then the only sales will be live at SHOT, Feb. 2, 3, 4, the drawing will be on the 5th.

Stop by the LTW booth and get some! We're at #931.

Tickets will also be available on #5 at SHOT-- get some o' those too!

Thanks for all the support, my fine LTW followers. It's been a great project and we're gonna do some real good with both of these.

Ladies and gentlemen,

$32,410.00

Thanks one and all for putting this one over the top!

Should be interesting to subtract this from the final total and see how many tickets were sold at SHOT. I'm betting 700.

On second thought-- that's awfully high-- 500 would be nice though 8)

Nice case!
More "fitting" than "fitted".

Over $32,000? Wow. I feel really happy right now.

Excellent! I just hope the hand that is picking finds its way to one of my tickets. Fingers toes and eyes crossed.

Any idea if the same applies to #5? I was either too late or too stupid (likely both) to get in on #4.

Just wanted to drop in and give a quick update on this special pistol. 4TC1s hasn't been shot a lot, but is not exactly a safe queen either. The round count thru it is approximately 1,600 rounds, and I cannot imagine a better finish could be obtained. I see no discernible wear points on the barrel hood or bushing contact points. I haven't stripped it to look at the rails in a while, but the last time I did the rails looked new.
