What do you think?
- Looks like it will need a short snub...

My green snub is not pretty and has some pump wear. I guess I could always cut that puppy down YIKES!
- No! No! No! Back away from the hacksaw!!!

JT Line SI

Ok, finally dug her out from the catacombs.
Here she is with my team letterman jacket. Embroidered to include a lever quick change.
Attachment 5381

The JT SI engraving done by factory.
Attachment 5382

OldSkool satin jacket, headband, and team patch.
Notice the embroidered Nespot marker, pre-Bushy.
Attachment 5383

The very rarest of SI wirestocks. This one was a limited run and had the shoulder plate welded on.
I had the stock shaped so it wouldn't collapse. This was the SI factory stock's only fault and it would gouge your pump hand when auto-triggering.
Also, hand made custom cherry wood 45 grips made by the legendary Tim Stone, just ask my old team mate Mongo...
Attachment 5384

Ah, she served me well....

Too cool Gilly and an SI slider too boot! I had one once it WOULD collapse when pumping, and inorder to use it the stock had to be extended. i have always regretted getting rid of it.

Whats the back story on the JT LINE SI?

I noticed SI had JT whippersnappers in their ads.

Love the jacket dude.

JT SI

DSA,
Ross and John Gregory(JT) had a friendly business partnership stretching back decades ago. They would cofinance some ads for dual exposure.
In tribute, Jerry had a few bodies and pump arms engraved.
This option was also available to sponsored teams for their team names to be engraved.

There were only a few red JT SI's made to my knowledge.
At one time, originally this marker I now own was the "marquee" marker in a glass case at the Skirmish store when they used to be on Canby Ave in Reseda, Ca. We called it the "Christmas gun" because it was ultra expensive at the time and no mortal we knew could afford it. I remember it was put out for sale right around December. It was stolen by an unkown party one day. As the Bushmaster Team captain, I vowed to make every effort to recover her.
Since it was high profile at the time, whomever had her parted her out.
My network of teamates, spies, and agents slowly recovered each part seperately, paying undisclosed amounts, and never revealing the true culprit although I always had my suspicions.
It took me over a year and a half to assemble her once again to her original glory.
I kept the store manager Henry Gilbert appraised of its recovery progress.
When she was finally complete, I took it back to store to be redisplayed.
Henry appreciated my efforts and handed it back to me saying "keep it".
This story is 100% true.

Like I said Greenie has some pump rub mainly from the dust covers which appear to have been on since this marker was a block of aluminum stock.



I'll include the dust covers as they hide the rub.




Just want to be up front on the condition of the snub.





Some more rub from the pump but when Greenie is assembled. It looks real nice.

Thanks! Steve "Mongo" Brett and I played against/together this last Sunday. He spoke highly of you.
We often swap tales of yesterlore and our days together as teamates.
Or even just to talk about the OG days and yesterlore.
Our friendship goes back some 20sum years..
