Nemesis Double-Stack .40 Caliber Pistol

Atlas Gunworks has announced the ultimate competition pistol designed for USPSA Limited Division shooters. The Nemesis double-stack .40 caliber pistol provides shooters with a distinct advantage over those using traditional guns.

The Nemesis’ unique feature is a fixed front sight block. This block delivers the benefits of a shorter lightened slide, less reciprocating mass, improved balance point, additional weight at the end of the barrel and a front sight that doesn’t move with the slide.

The Nemesis shares the features of other Atlas guns including a tri-top and lightened slide, PT EVO grip, X-Line Vario trigger, KKM 5” bull barrel, flared ejection port and competition magwells. A super-hard DLC coating is standard. atlasgunworks.com
