    The bottom one, is that one of those built by the armorers for the MTU? It looked like one of the pistols that I borrowed from the MTU for fun.

    I am still researching the pistol for conclusive evidence of that. From all that I have been able to find, it is a true Military Match pistol.

    I hear you, James. That's exactly where my collection is seriously lacking.

    I only have my old National Match from '67.

    Me too. It was in really bad condition on the right side of the slide. Very heavily pitted. Left side looked good. Since Jimmy is going to hang on to it, he should consider having it professionally restored. It is too important of a pistol to be ruined.
