The best place to start is with the frames… we have spent a lot of time here – we will post some more pictures, but for now meet the first five tries.
Each of these frame castings are different… and they come from a few different casting houses. One of the Internet rumors that we see is that we are having the “same place that makes frames for Ruger” do our frame castings… they have done some, but the most current castings come from a different supplier.
What you are seeing represents a lot of work… each change to a casting can take a lot of time, but with each change we have made significant improvements to the heart of the pistol – and these changes do no come cheap, what you are looking at in that picture represents a serious investment in this project.
At each step along the way we had hoped we were there, a few times we thought for sure that we were… but there were things that we wanted to do better, so here we are: there are two other frames, the one we are currently using for testing and the newest one from the casting house – not going to say that newest one is the for sure real deal, but it is looking really good.
Next, we’ll round up some slides and show you what has been going on there… or maybe barrels, we have a lot of different barrels to show you…
