Pistol Combo Set Raffle

LTW (http://www.louderthanwords.us), short for Actions Speak Louder Than Words, is a consortium of custom shops from around the country who specialize in the 1911 pistol. We collaborate 2-3 times a year on a custom gun, raffle it off, and donate the proceeds to a selected charity.

We are proud to announce that our primary project for 2009 will be for the benefit of AmericanSnipers.org!

The prize package consists of much more than a custom pistol, but let's start with that. The pistol was custom-built very much to a sniper theme, as if it were going to be employed on the front lines by one of AmericanSnipers.org's own. The pistol was based on a Wilson Combat 1911 platform, a superb, quality foundation for any custom pistol. Wilson Combat graciously provided a frame, slide barrel, and five Tactical Elite magazines for this year's effort.

The pistol was custom built by three of the nationís finest custom 1911 craftsmen: Chuck Rogers of Rogers Precision, John Harrison of Harrison Design, and Ted Yost of Heirloom Precision.  Each craftsman did not just "add special touches", but effected real, duty-oriented modifications to ensure perfect reliability, enhanced handling and durability, and accuracy.  Read on to learn more about this one of a kind custom crafted 1911 pistol.

In addition, the prize package currently includes custom leather from John Ralston of 5 Shot Leather, fine knives from Al Mar, binoculars from Steiner, nylon gear from Eagle Industries, Black Hills ammunition and Surefire flashlights.  More great gear will be added to the package as we near the raffle date, stay tuned.  

The Winning Ticket will be drawn at the 138th NRA Annual meeting on May 17th 2009 at the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Arizona.
