    The new Nemesis 2011, was designed to be suitable for USPSA Limited, 3 Gun, IPSC Standard competitions. Available in .40SW, 45 ACP and, 9mm and unlike Atlas’ other pistols the Nemesis features a sight block. The pistol has a PT EVO Grip, a X-Line Vario Trigger and a various flared magwell options.

    Here’s Atlas Gunworks’ release about the Nemesis:

    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 truly is an amazing pistol for Limited shooters. Recoil is softer and flatter than traditional guns allowing the gun to return to true zero. The sight system allows for faster shooting and follow up shots that are always closer to true zero,” said Atlas President Adam Nislon.

    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.

    Atlas claim to be committed to short waiting times, guaranteeing the Nemesis will ship in less
    than 3 months from order. Atlas’ introductory price for the upcoming Nemesis is a cool $4,750, for more information check out Atlas’ website.
