Preview: Atlas Gunworks Nemesis Pistol

posted on February 20, 2018

Atlas Gunworks has announced a new pistol designed for USPSA Limited Division competitive shooters—the Nemesis double-stack in .40 S&W caliber (currently priced at $4750). The Nemesis should also prove ideal for 3-Gun and/or IPSC Standard competition.

Atlas Nemesis has a fixed front sight block
Atlas incorporated the most requested parts in their inventory into the Nemesis Sight Block Pistol.

Unique to the Nemesis is a fixed front sight block, which the company says delivers these benefits: a shorter, lightened slide; less reciprocating mass; improved balance point; some additional weight at the end of the barrel; and a front sight that doesn’t move with the slide.

"Perfect Zero Engineering" allows sight returns to zero with the correct load.

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

Length of the trigger is individually adjustable.

“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,” said Atlas President Adam Nislon. “The sight system allows for faster shooting and follow up shots that are always closer to true zero.”

Atlas Gunworks says after ordering, the Nemesis can ship in under three months. It's available in three calibers: .40 S&W, .45 ACP and 9mm. For more information, please visit, or call 855-940-1911.
