Mission 22 Custom Glock 17 Hybrid Fundraising Raffle
Richard S. from Princeton, New Jersey. Richard's ticket, # 328396, was drawn as the lucky winner of the custom Glock 17/19 Hybrid from Mission 22.
Founded by veterans, for veterans, Mission 22 has made it their goal to raise awareness, enlist support, and make advances towards ending veteran suicide in America. Your generous contributions will help Mission 22 create not only permanent memorials to veterans who have succumbed to the battle at home, but you will also be supporting their efforts to fund the mobile “War at Home Memorial,” which will travel around the United States, spreading the message, and honoring our veterans who gave so much for our freedoms.

For their first fundraiser of 2017, Mission 22 is offering this custom Glock 17 “Carry” package. The prize gun consists of a full sized Glock 17 which has been expertly modified to a Glock 19 “Compact” sized grip frame. This modification allows for easier concealment of the short frame, while still maintaining the 15 +1 capacity of a standard service sidearm, and the longer sight radius of the Glock 17 affords the user a longer sight radius for increased accuracy potential.
Further modifications to the prize gun include finger groove removal, trigger guard undercut, and frame texturing, all performed by NAF Solutions and Loki Tactical. Additional custom modifications to this pistol include metalwork such as front cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts (for recoil mitigation) an RMR cut for an optional Trijicon red dot sight, and a custom CeraKote camouflage finish, all performed by the skilled folks at Jagerwerks. Last but not least, in the accuracy and control department, an Apex flat trigger and failure resistant extractor were installed, along with a match grade barrel from S3F Solutions, and Trijicon HD night sights.
This prize gun and custom work is easily valued at close to $2,500 and it could be yours, if your $10 ticket is randomly drawn as our lucky winner.
What makes this prize pistol even more special, is that it was donated by a veteran who believes in Mission 22 and their cause. While the donor wishes to remain anonymous, Mission 22 and Guns for a Cause would like to express their gratitude for this individual’s support, and the belief which we all share, that our veterans deserve all the help we can possibly provide.
Guns for a Cause is proud to partner once again with Mission 22, in order to help them fulfill their goals, and work towards putting a stop to the tragedy of veteran suicide. In addition to their traveling memorials, Mission 22 seeks to assist veterans in need so that they can get the counseling and help which is vital to preventing such tragic loss.
With the current state of affairs in certain government run organizations, it’s no surprise that many of our veterans don’t seek out, or aren’t able to access the help some of them desperately need. Sadly, the suicide rate among our returning vets has risen to intolerable levels. With an estimated 20+ deaths per day, the solitary war at home has claimed more lives than our combat missions around the globe. Mission 22 is one organization which is dedicated not only to raising awareness of this problem, but to reversing this terrible trend. Guns for a Cause is proud to play a small part in helping them reach this goal.
Most people would agree that our veterans have made tremendous sacrifices in order to stand up and answer their nation’s call to service. Our soldiers often endure hardships in the field, long periods of separation from loved ones, and in combat, they face conditions and witness horrific events, which most of us simply can’t relate to. It’s no surprise then that some of these traumatic events linger to haunt returning veterans, in some cases, for the rest of their lives. After the “Great War,” this lingering trauma was referred to as “shell shock.” You know the condition today as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or “PTSD.”
Tickets for this event are just $10 and there will be a limited number of tickets available. As always, there are bonus tickets available for orders of 5, 10 and 15 tickets. Your contributions to this event will help Mission 22 to provide support to veterans who desperately need it. Thank you for your participation, and we wish you the best of luck!
Tickets are available online until 11:00 PM eastern, on Sunday, the 12th of March, 2017 – Drawing will be held on Monday, the 13th of March, 2017. You can’t win if you don’t enter though, so be sure to click the button for the number of tickets you want, and good luck!
