RTP Viper - Intimidator 0001 - Review - Write up - The MI CARTA

First the photos:




Now here is the story, first when i heard about intimidator and viper, and that Rick the Prick (RTP) was in San Diego I was determined to go meet him and maybe pick up an intimidator since they were about the same as a T2.

When I got to the shop, 2 guns caught my eyes, first was the other one that you see in ironchef photos - the one with the red rose stock, and this one, which he called the Mi Carta (which is also the material the stock is made from).

The stock is hand carved out of a micarta blank including all the holes. The screws that you see on the stocks are handsaw screws which fit very nicely.

Now this is one that have all the bell and whistle, this is actually what is now the viper, but I guess when he first build it, it was still intimidator all the way. One day if the paint coating get bad enough i'll polish it shiny stainless steel, but this will do for now.

First disassembly of the micarta:



You can see how thin the stock it, at the part where the steel tubing goes through, yet it still hold it weight after all these years.

Look up near the front you notice a little knob:


Let pull it out shall we?


Ooo it extend too:



According to Rick this was all done by hand so I put down my # as soon as I saw it. Since Rick want to invest in new machine to build viper/intimidator he sold me this one. The material for the stock alone was $400 dollars in 1980/1990 dollars.

I think the finish is just paint, i am not sure what kind. I may remove the coating sooner or later if the coating wear off, and then get it powder coat or something.
