Ritter & Stark GmbH New Sponsor of Guardian Long Range Competition

As part of its sponsorship, Ritter & Stark has donated a gift certificate valued at $3,277 to the prize table.

Feistritz, Austria (September 2017) – Ritter & Stark GmbH, an Austrian-based firearms design and manufacturing company, is proud to announce that it’s signed on as a sponsor of the Guardian Long Range Competition. As part of its sponsorship, Ritter & Stark has donated a gift certificate of 50% off a rifle valued at $3,277 to the prize table. The Ritter & Stark team will be at the final Guardian match of the year to be held September 16, 2017 at Woody’s Hunt & Rifle Club in New Hill, North Carolina.  In addition, the Friday before the last Guardian match of the year, R&S will be hosting a demo of the SX-1 MTR for attendees to shoot. Attendees who try the SX-1 will automatically be registered to win a free registration for any 2018 Guardian match, a thank you for coming out and trying the R&S SX-1 MTR.

The Guardian Long Range Competition is a full day precision shooting event, offering competitors the opportunity to test their skills with a rifle and compete. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the competition will go toward reducing the orphan crisis by helping offset the financial cost for parents considering adoption through Bethany Christian Services, America’s largest Christian nonprofit organization.

“We are proud to be sponsors of the Guardian Long Range Competition and glad we have the chance to give a well deserving champion an amazing prize,” said Yakov Trakhman, marketing director of Ritter & Stark.

Ritter & Stark produces the stunning SX-1 MTR rifle, an advanced long-range precision rifle, designed by the world’s best engineers, using state of the art machinery and proprietary techniques. The SX-1 MTR allows the operator to quickly and easily change out calibers between .308 Win, .300 Win Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum while in the field.

In addition to the ease of interchangeability, the barrels come with a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail pre-installed, allowing the operator to pre-sight optics on each barrel, eliminating any need to re-zero the rifle when changing caliber.

One of the secrets to Ritter & Stark’s unprecedented accuracy is its unique barrel production. No other barrel maker in the world manufacturers its barrels like Ritter & Stark. The rifling is done in a CNC-controlled electrochemical machine. This avoids the transmission of thermal effects and mechanical stress to the material. Furthermore, this process allows Ritter & Stark to produce barrels with unique uniformity and within tolerance zones that were not possible in serial production before.

Every rifle is tested at the factory and can achieve 0.5 MOA 3-round groups or better using factory match grade ammunition.
