The cartridge cases are brass or nickel-plated brass. The nickel plated pieces require no polishing. The brass cases will remain shiny with use or can be polished with a non-abrasive polishing cloth.

The tip and pocket clip portion of the pen and pencil can be copper-plated or titanium nitride-plated in gold or black (gunmetal), and should not need polishing.

The pen is twist-style, and holds a Cross™-style refill - available at office supply and stationery stores.

The pencil is click-style. It uses .7mm lead and has a removable cap and eraser.

Why the Write-Shot Pen?

In March 2009, a friend's father passed away. He was a 1944 D-Day veteran, flying a B-26 Bomber over the beaches of Normandy. The USAF sent an honor guard to his funeral and fired a military salute near the casket. The sergeant in charge of the honor guard presented my friend with the fired cases. I figured that the cases would be put into a plastic bag and would land in a desk drawer if I didn't think of a better use for them. I did a lot of research, then assembly and product testing to arrive at the Write-Shot Pen. My friend was brave enough to trust me with her treasured keepsakes to machine pens for her and her children - thus was born Legacy-Pens, LLC. I have since completed several sets of Legacy-Pens for families of veterans and would be honored to complete a set for you. These pens are designed to give the survivors a daily link to their veteran.

I can also make a Write-Shot Pen, pencil (the pencil uses two .308 cases), or set with your fired .30'06 and/or .308 cases for a special memory; for example, your first deer, hunting with your father or friends, etc. What better way to commemorate the event than to carry a piece of that day with you!

A portion of the profits from the sale of these pens is donated to Veteran's causes such as Honor Flight - which hosts trips for WWII Vets to see the WWII Memorial and the other military memorials in Washington D.C.
