Accu-strut Contest

In homage to our reaching One Million Dollars in sales revenue (began selling in 2007), we are hosting a small giveaway (contest). We recently started using a new logo (actually a modification of the old logo), shown below. There is something special about the logo. (Well, there's probably several special things, but we're looking for something specific.) A new Accu-strut, model of the winner's choice, will go to the first person who can explain the logo's special significance:


The Prize: A New Accu-strut
Your Model, Your Finish


Some groundrules apply...
  • Winner will be the first person, as determined by our CEO, to successfully submit the correct answer.
  • All decisions are final.
  • You can guess as many times as you wish, but only one guess per post.
  • Entry guesses must be made in this thread.
  • Prize is an Accu-strut model in any version chosen by the winner, in any finish currently offered.
  • No purchase is necessary.
  • Entrants must be members of Perfect Union as of July 12, 2016 with a minimum of two (2) posts.
  • Winner must have a shipping address inside the continental United States.
  • Winner must be 18 years of age or older and able to legally receive and possess firearm accessories.
  • Employees of NEST Engineering, or our associates, are excluded from play.
  • We may offer "clues" during live play at our discretion.
  • We reserve the right to alter the rules at any time.

The contest begins immediately and will proceed until August 13, 2016 at 8:00pm Pacific time unless a winner is selected previously. At this point a winner will be determined from amongst the closest answers by our judgment. Good luck!

"Accu"racy is a "top" priority, so it's on top.

'Accu-' is a graphical representation of the Mini barrel.
'-strut' represents the strut itself.

Because the strut is located below the "barrel" in the logo, it makes the "barrel" more Accu-rate.
