This year's project is really one to get excited about! The beneficiary group for our current effort is the Naval Special Warfare Foundation. The NSWF is a well established and well organized non-profit that has an efficient mechanism for their fundraising efforts. The Naval Special Warfare Foundation conducts many large fundraising events throughout the year in order to benefit those who served in the sea commando services and LTW is thrilled to be a part of this great and worthy charity.

Like previous LTW collaborations, this pistol is something extraordinary. This project’s pool of knowledge, skill, and craftsmanship was provided by the following gunsmiths: Steve Bailey of Heirloom Precision, Stan Chen of Legacy Custom, Ned Christiansen of Michiguns LTD., CT Brian of CT Brian Custom, and Don Williams of The Action Works. The frame and slide were donated to the foundation by Springfield Armory and serial numbered to denote the year of completion, LTW 2009. Most of the parts were donated by the foremost friend to the gunsmithing trade and staple of the firearms industry Brownells. Both Brownells and Springfield Armory, along with other companies, have been steadfast supporters of LTW from the beginning.

With the parts in hand and the project’s direction defined Stan Chen began by machining the front strap and mainspring housing for his “Progressive Traction“ checkering after which Don Williams fit the frame and slide, barrel and bushing, and installed the ejector and extractor along with performing the reliability work. Steve Bailey fit the beavertail and thumb safety followed by CT Brian who ball-cut and bordered the slide, performed a trigger job, crowned the barrel, flush-cut and countersunk the slide stop/slide stop pin hole, and de-horned the gun. Finally Ned Christiansen installed a Dawson light rail, fit a dovetailed front sight, modified the slide to accept his “Shield Driver” rear sight as well as doing the final zeroing and detailing of the gun. A holster set was custom made by Josh Bulman of Bulman Gunleather. Josh’s work looks as much like fine art as it does functional leather and for this project Josh made his SDS holster, QDMP magazine carrier, and QLC flashlight carrier all finished in an exquisite two-tone honey and mahogany finish.

Like previous LTW collaborations, this pistol is something extraordinary and the gun and leather are simply an awesome combination that really show off the unique talents of the makers. All that’s left to do is for one lucky person to win the raffle. To purchase tickets or for more information contact:

Raffle tickets are $10.00 each; no E-pay available at this moment. Contact Laura. Drawing is scheduled for SHOT in January. I've been working on sales in the Austin area for a short while now. A great gun for a great cause!

A work of art (as usual) Jason, I really dig the unique checkering on the front strap & MSH.

You guys really out did your selves this year.
