    John FYI, you have a broken link on one of the photos.

    The SteelMaster hammer (front) has a more rounded spur, compared to a rather "pointed square" shape on the Edge (rear).
    Great write up Hawk. I like how you took the review in a different direction than usual because of the nature of the gun. Not surprising that the first few rounds were a bit sluggish. Pistols designed for the super light loads are like that. Good to hear that they ironed out after a few runs.

    Do you think Mr. B, will trade his Italian Stallion for a Hartford Pony(or in this case a Texas Trotter) now?

    Great job Hawk.
    I had a chance to shoot the Steelmaster at Chris's range while I was visiting Hawkmoon and it is an interesting pistol to shoot to say the least.
    I can see how the design would lend itself to shooting steel matches in a hurry.

    Another good review, Hawk.

    The last action pistol match I went to had a guy with a racegun shooting with us. We had a shoot off using 4 steel plates and he dispatched one of the better shooters (using a 2 tone Kimber) with a quickness. It was amazing how fast he acquired the target and shot.

    I ordered the SteelMaster a while ago, so I was more than happy to read the review! I have asked questions on other forums about the pistol, but there aren't many people who have had a chance to shoot one.

    I have a long wait ahead of me (I live in Finland) and I'm very interested in comments, photos etc. Don't get me wrong, the article hit the spot, but I'm also eager to hear more from the owners who have used the gun.

    I plan on using the SteelMaster for steel matches (suprise, suprise...) and as a training tool for IPSC. I compete with iron sights at the moment, but would like to try out something different for a change.

    Wow what a wild looking pistol. Well done on the review Hawk it sounds like the pistol served it's purpose well.
