Both are built on STi frames. Weight on the open gun is about 44 ounces with an empty mag. The 6" limited is about 42. Have not had our lead levels checked. However everything I load and we shoot has a complete metal jacket. No lead is exposed on the bullet. Doesn't eliminate the risk but it does reduce it.

Lots of lead in gun powder .That is what was told us in some of our tac classes. It could take k elation therapy to remove it. I always liked the smell of pirex in the morning.

Both are out to the platers and I should have them by the end of the month. The 6" Limited came in at 37oz and the Open gun is 44oz. If I can get the pics off of my phone I will post up the photos of the raw steel guns. The machine work is incredible. Some of the best finish work I have seen. Not a single tool mark to be seen.

The plan right now is to finish off this year getting used to the new guns. Next year we will shoot the Area-1 Championship which will be held in eastern Idaho, The Area-2 Championship in Arizona, and with a little luck qualify for the Nationals in Utah. We will also do as many local matches as possible as well as the Steel Challenge. Time to order a shit ton of bullets and crank up the presses.

What kind of ear protection do you use? I double plug mine when shooting big bores. Peltors and plugs.
