    My mistake on the number of characters. I see that now & had thought the second character was actually two. I asked a couple of friends about their holster markings and they are checking.

    Great thread! I was wondering if anyone by chance had any of the measurements of the rear and front boxes? And if the sizes changed when they switched over to 7.7?
