Along with the chance at the rifle package, each ticket purchased also has a chance at a S&W Performance Center MDL .500 Caliber Handgun designed by John Ross (John Ross is the author of Unintended Consequences) The winner will receive Serial # 005 of 500 handguns created.

The John Ross/Performance Center .500 S&W Magnum

5” half-lug barrel for GREAT balance and ballistics—you’ll love the way it looks, feels, carries, and shoots

Faster 1:10” twist button-rifled barrel—stabilizes bullets up to 725 grains at long range or at lower velocities, and gives deepest penetration. Gun is shipped sighted in for the powerful 500 grain Hornady long-nose factory load.

Tensioned barrel with muzzle nut—allows a tight .0035” cylinder gap for greater velocity

Interchangeable Millet front sight blade--be on target with ANY load

No unsightly markings—just my initials for the serial number prefix to let you know you’ve got the real thing, built with Performance Center dedication to detail. Elmer Keith (and Henry Bowman) would have loved it…

Each ticket purchased for this raffle will be used in both drawings. So if you buy one ticket, you get a chance to win either of these two fine firearms OR BOTH OF THEM. Tickets are $25 each, but FCI is also continuing its policy of giving away 5 tickets for every $100 contribution.
