Team ArmaLite’s Greg Jordan won the TacOps and High Law Enforcement titles with his overall win at the 2014 FNH USA 3-Gun Championship held September 18-20, at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glegary, WV. This is Jordan’s second year in a row to claim both titles at this match and marks a number of repeat titles he has claimed under Team ArmaLite this season.
Of the nine stages of competition Jordan walked away in the top position on five, giving him an overall score of 848.42 points, a total of 47.34 match points over his next rival.
Jordan shoots one of the first models of the ArmaLite 3-Gun Rifle Series-an ArmaLite M153GN18. This rifle sports the new ArmaLite 15-inch low profile aluminum handguard, a 3-lb. Timney single-stage trigger, an ArmaLite triple lapped 18-inch stainless steel barrel with the new tunable muzzle brake and adjustable gas block. He attributes much of his ability to handle both the close- and long-range rifle stage requirements of competitions like the FNH USA 3-Gun National Championships to his equipment.
“The FNH USA Championship is one of those matches that you never really know what to expect,” said Jordan. “Once I had the opportunity to walk the stages I knew that we would be tested on both ends of the shooting spectrum. This is where your gear comes into play. It has to allow you to operate at maximum speed on one stage and then provide extreme accuracy on the next. This is why 3-gun is such a great test ground for gear, and why I feel my ArmaLite rifle gives me an edge.”
Also competing for Team ArmaLite was Tommy Thacker, President of ArmaLite and Team Captain. Thacker placed 8th in TacOps and 11th overall. Thacker said “Greg’s performance at this event solidifies our commitment to designing and producing the best products on the market. When performance and reliability are crucial ArmaLite stands tall.”
All of the ArmaLite 3-Gun rifles are made and tested in Geneseo, IL, under the same quality standards ArmaLite has provided for the last 60 years. These products will be available for commercial purchase in 2015. For more information on ArmaLite rifles, please visit: www.armalite.com.
