We’re very happy and excited to welcome Willi Schmidt, host of Pure Hunting to the Lone Wolf family! We’ve known Willi for several years and have come to know him as a very fine representative of the hunting community and are proud to have him as part of our Wolf Pack.
Willi is an “outdoorsman” in every sense of the word and does not discriminate when it comes to the type of his outdoor adventures. Backpacking and camping with his family, fishing, predator patrol, waterfowl, high country mule deer, archery elk, you name it…he loves it all! A custom-built Timberwolf 10mm fits in naturally with his backcountry activities, so we were ready with notepad in hand. Willi wanted a sidearm that was lightweight, shootable, reliable, accurate and had enough power to get the job done; whether it be against a charging bear, or taking down deer-sized game at medium distances.
This was easy enough for us, so we went to work! Willi ended up going with a Signature Series #22 slide profile, since it’s overall lighter in weight than just a standard profile slide and the looks are of course, very clean. He has a good relationship built with Vortex Optics, so the 6MOA Venom RDS was his choice as the primary in his sight system. This was mounted to the slide via a slide melt in the Combat configuration, along with a set of tall iron sights from Ameriglo. The rest of the upper is comprised of all Lone Wolf components, including a Tungsten guide rod with a 20# ISMI recoil spring and a standard length AlphaWolf barrel. This of course, was all mated up with our stellar TimberWolf Large frame,built with an Ultimate Adjustable Trigger.
We are likely as excited as he is, to see his season unfold and have a Timberwolf 10mm along with him on his journeys. Stay safe and shoot straight, Willi!
