RIP Terry Tussey


Recommended Posts

I had the good fortune to know Terry for a while after he moved his shop to Northern Nevada.  I spent time with him and we discussed how the 1911 pistol functions.  For instance, Terry was not a fan of tightening the slide to the frame.  He said consistent barrel lock-up was the key to accuracy and reliability.  


He worked on a couple of mine and improved a Hi Power too.  He was a talented guy.  He was also a source of history about the practical shooting sports in 1960s Southern California--great stories.  Terry was a consultant for Colt in the 1980s and helped that company bring forward the Series 80 design, which Terry favored.  He did excellent trigger work on a Series 80 I owned at the time.  RIP.
