Cabot, PA –-( The Pennsylvania producer of 1911 style pistols is pleased to announce it’s sponsorship of the NRA National Pistol Championship, the nation’s premier tournament of marksmanship shooting since 1903.

Cabot Guns has acquired the naming rights for the 2013 through 2017 years for the NRA’s Center Fire Championship which will be now known as the Cabot Guns NRA National Center Fire Championship scheduled for July 12, 2013.

“We are proud to support competitive bullseye shooting,” stated Cabot President Rob Bianchin.

The match tests the ability of the shooter to fire very accurately with a center fire pistol in calibers .32 to .45, most of which are 1911 style pistols although revolvers meet qualification. Approximately 700 competitors are expected to compete for the title including the top civilian and military marksman.

In 2011 Cabot Gun Company made its debut at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. One year later the company won the NRA National Pistol Championship overall title with marksman Brian “Gunny” Zins shooting a Cabot 1911. “We were excited to have our team led by 11 time National Champion Brian “Gunny” Zins. Brian did a beautiful job in 2012 showing off what aCabot Gun can do in such expert hands.” Last year the Cabot Gun Team also claimed the Bronze medal – third place among 98 four-man teams.

The 2013 Cabot Shooting Team will consist of shooters: Brian “Gunny” Zins, William Bethards, Shane Clevenger and Andy Moody, all former Marines.

“We are excited that last year’s core will be augmented with the addition of shooter Ret. Master Sergeant Andy Moody to the team,” added Bianchin.

M.Sgt. Moody is credited for teaching the most winning pistol marksman in history Brian Zins how to shoot bullseye.

Cabot Guns President Rob Bianchin also attributes success to the dedication of the excellent craftsmen at Penn United Technologies and team armor KC Crawford — a winning formula which will be maintained. This year the team is also being supported by master ammo maker Stan Chen based in Durango, Colorado. The Cabot Team will be shooting his highly regarded ASYM Precision NationalMatch Target 185 grain .45 ACP JHP ammo.

The Cabot Guns NRA National Center Fire Championship consists of firing slow, timed, and rapid fire. This is done at 50 and 25 yards and consists of 20 shots, slow fire at 50 yards (2 10-shot strings, 10 minutes per string), 20 shots, timed fire at 25 yards (4 5-shot strings, 20 seconds per string), 20 shots, rapid fire at 25 yards (4 5-shot strings, 10 seconds per string), and the National Match Course (10-shots, slow fire at 50 yards, 10-shots timed fire, and 10-shots rapid fire). This match consists of 90-shots for a possible aggregate total of 900 points

Adopting technology from the aerospace industry, Cabot 1911 style pistols are engineered and built using technology techniques ten-times more precise than CNC machining and more consistent than the finest hand work. Such precision and consistency allows for superior tolerances not found elsewhere in the firearms industry. This level of care and dedication to perfection is what has earned Cabot Guns the description as the “Rolls Royce of 1911s” by the Blue Book of Gun Values.
