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!
