9. Herb Hazen book "The Complete 1911 Cleaning Manual"
A copy of the above mentioned book will be send to the lucky winner.
Like we did in the past, the way to enter is by posting ONE SINGLE MESSAGE in this thread. Only one message per member needs to be entered in this thread.
At the end of the raffle period (December 30th, 2011) at midnight, we'll select the lucky winners.
The selection will be done by running a random number generator program, which will select a random number between 2 and the total number of posts at the end of the raffle period. In other words, if there will be 100 posts entered by our members, in this thread, then the program will select random numbers between 2 and 101. Why 2? Because this post (by me) is not eligible for a prize. We'll run the program, as many times as there are prizes. In other words, ten times, we have (so far) 10 prizes. So each and every post counts towards each prize.
No member of the M1911.ORG management team is allowed to participate in the raffle.
No member can enter more than one post in this thread, the program which selects the winner, will check for double posts and if someone enters two posts, both of them will be deleted. Only one post please!
If you want to ask questions or if you want to discuss our Raffle, please use this thread
Good Luck to all of you.
P.S.: It is your responsibility to make sure that the RIA pistol can be shipped to your FFL. If shipping the pistol to your FFL is not possible, due to local regulations or laws, the pistol will be awarded to another lucky guy or gal. And just in case this is not clear from the previous sentence, only US residents can participate in the Grand Prize selection, we can't ship a pistol to any other country. Actually, the only prizes we can ship to a non-USA member are our knives, so please take that into consideration, when entering your post.
