They feature a stainless steel match grade barrel that is machined oversized and then fitted by a hand in the Custom Shop for accuracy. Gold Match pistols deliver an unequaled standard or performance. They’re designed for competition, the accuracy and dependability of these pistols have made them a favorite for all-around use.
But firearms are not the only things competitors will have the opportunity to try and test. Sponsors like Nightforce will be providing optics for firearms.

The ATACR 4-16x42 F1 sets a new standard in mid-powered optics. With its capped windage adjustment to help prevent accidental adjustments while in the field, this compact yet powerful rifle scope also provides for fast hold-off adjustments and precise ranging calculations.
