Have any individuals who have a WTS pistol due in the next batch had a recent update on delivery?

I thought I'd post an update to this thread.
This weekend I did another USPSA match with my WTS 9mm and ticked just over 6,000 rounds down range. Not sure where you other owners are in your round count.

Everything is nice and broken in and it runs like a champ. The only thing that's gone wrong has been a broken fiber optic rod in the front sight during a match. Now I make sure to keep a fiber rod in my range bag - only takes 5 minutes to replace.

How many of these are being produced annually, approximately? I've been tempted to order one just can't decide if I'd want a 9mm CQB more.

June 2015 Detail Strip

I decided to detail strip my WTS Saturday night ahead of a match on Sunday and decided to snap few pix for the fun of it.



This is why I laugh at the guys who get a new gun and want to RMA their new gun with a scratch on it. How about you actually shoot it?!?!

There's another steel match coming up in a few days. I hope to hit the range and get a little practice in before then.

Here's a pix of my fat ass shooting my WTS at last weeks match.
BangSwitch, who made your holster in this photo. I am looking for one that has the sweat shield that covers the safety and accommodates an X300u as well. Raven doesn't even make one from what they say.

I don't know who made his holster but you may want to check these guys out.

is this something new?

I was under the impression there was absolutely *NO* deviation with the Professional, including .45 ACP caliber only...

It has been shown before, but not by me

Just picked this up this weekend in a trade. I have been down-sizing (recoil wise) and found this nice WTS in 9mm.

Solid find sir! I am sure you will enjoy it as most guys that have a WTS seem to think highly of them.

Hello: What do these weight with an empty mag? Do they meet the 43oz limit for USPSA in a 9mm? Thanks, Eric

Mine is still doing well. I haven't shot much lately due to work constraints by I'm sitting at about 2500 rounds through this pistol with no issues. This pistol is solid and shoots lights out with little effort. Only problem I have is putting it down!

I followed Todd Green's evaluation of these things a few years ago and I still read the blog posts occasionally. He really put some serious work to them. I'm wondering if you can give us a rundown after 2500 rds.? Maybe if bangswitch is around, perhaps he could too?

Sure, I would be glad to! Is there anything in particular you'd like to know? I can tell you this far I have yet to have a single issue from the pistol.

- Without fail the pistol has used factory magazines, Tripp Cobra, Chip McCormick and Wilson combat magazines. Feeds reliably using all, no instances with any magazines not feeding 10 rounds reliably or issues with magazines dropping free.
- Trigger is very consistent and the pull is very crisp with no changes in break regardless of if the pistol is clean or dirty.
- The extractor came properly tensioned and has not needed adjustment at all. Ejection has been consistent and passed the 10-8 extractor test upon delivery.
- I have been a bit rough of the finish, running the gun hard with aggressive mag changes, most of the wear is around the mag well.
- It functions properly with and without a light attached and for the past 1k rounds has worn a FDE Surefire X300U.

I hope this answers some questions, but if you have anything else in mind let me know and I will try to address it.
