Working together with Purdey, the custom gun company, on the limited edition of the R8 AUTHENTIC gave Roland the opportunity to tour their factory, see how their guns open up and feel the power of the springs. This inspired him to create a spring loaded belt deployed in eight positions.
The R81 Spring Loaded 8 Position Suspension Belt functions via a patent-pending trigger mechanism which delivers 8 degrees/ 25mm of calibration along a ratchet barrel construction. The materials used in the R81- solid gold and titanium, have been chosen to guarantee impeccable performance of the trigger mechanism and to provide the touch, feel and uniquely dense sound of gold. Afterall, when you have 8 positions to choose from, you never have your hand far from the trigger. Thats why the code name for this product is Goldfinger.
