New Ultra Raptor

Hey folks,

I found a new Ultra Raptor close by and while I was going to dip into the Micro 9 pool initially, I've always wanted the Raptor.

I'll get out and shoot it this weekend and report back.
Can't wait!

Congrats on the new raptor! Make sure you clean and lube before you take it out the first time. Enjoy!

I've always liked the front strap/slide serrations treatment. Seems to offer a nice mid-ground between smooth and 30lpi checkering, which can feel sharp to bare hands.

That would be a natural fit with the increased # of 9's in 1911 format we see lately huh?
