Cleaning out my work area the other day I decided to take a few pictures of stuff I had hanging on my drying rack before filing them to the "For Future Reference" box.
These protos' were all built during development of the Criterion and like the Criterion feature a 25 degree cant, steel reinforced mouth bands and are made to sit as deep as possible IWB while still allowing for a full firing grip.
Some are based on new ideas and some are based off old designs such as our "Idaho Quick Mount", VM-2 and Nexus. All were rejected for one reason or another in favor of the current model Criterion.
