30 Cal and Spysir are correct.  I went with the standard HM vs the X because it’s a little lighter and a little quieter than the X and 40 ft/lbs is more than enough for what I use it for.  It was also a little longer than I wanted it to be, so Martin shortened it by 2 inches.  Walnut is definitely lighter than laminate.  I am not positive, but I believe the standard barrels are LWs except for the .357 which I think is a Korean manufacturer, but I don’t know who it is.  The benchmark barrel that I believe Hunter has on his .22 cal is only available in .22 cal.  When I ordered mine about a year ago, there was only one barrel option in the 25 cal.  I haven’t been able to stretch mine beyond 75 yards yet, but it will shoot sub MOA groups at 75 with the standard barrel at 40 FPE.  I waited 17 weeks to get exactly what I wanted, and while the wait was painful it was worth every second. :)

BTW, Hunter, it was one of your original posts on the other forum that got me started thinking about ordering the RAW.  I was going to order a Wolverine, but your posts made me reconsider my decision and I went with the RAW instead, so thank you and congrats on your fantastic collection!
