This is a one-year program that will run until September 25, 2008 (the second anniversary of Cooper’s death). Features of the Jeff Cooper Commemorative include an Ed Brown premium match-grade barrel and solid steel bushing for accuracy, a hand-fitted forged frame and slide, lowered and flared ejection port for improved ejection, a polished feedramp and hand-fit extractor and ejector to ensure ammo feed and a memory-groove beavertail grip safety for a higher and deeper grip to reduce felt recoil and improve natural pointing ability. Jeff Cooper's signature is engraved on the ejection port side on the slide. The right hand side of the slide is inlayed “DVC“ in 24-carat solid gold. DVC stands for Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (Accuracy, Power, Speed), the motto of IPSC. The model also boasts a three-hole style long aluminum trigger and exhibition-grade cocobolo smooth grips with the engraved Jeff Cooper logo of the pen and sword.
