CONROE, TEXAS – -(Ammoland.com)- Texas Armament & Technology (TxAT) and Aguila Ammunition are proud to announce CZ-USA as the first sponsor of the inaugural Aguila Cup. CZ-USA will sponsor the Sporting Clays Main Event, as well as the Judges'/Staff Uniforms.

In addition to the sponsorships, CZ-USA is being extremely generous and donating (10) CZ 612 Target 12ga Shotguns (MSRP of $549 each) to be used as prizes for 1st – 10th places of the Hunter Class in the Main Event of the competition. Hunter Class is the class used by the National Sporting Clays Association for new shooters who are not NSCA registered shooters.

“We are honored to have CZ-USA as not only a sponsor of our Aguila Cup, but as a partner in creating our first U.S.- based shooting sports tournament,” states Kristi Drawe, Director of Marketing for TxAT/Aguila Ammunition. “Not only does Aguila and CZ-USA share the sponsorship of World Record Holder, Dave Miller, but we both support the recruitment and growth of new and youth shooters to the shooting sports. Because of that, CZ-USA has helped develop an impressive prize pack, which will help encourage more novice shooters to participate in the Aguila Cup.”

“It's nice to see CZ-USA and Aguila (two of my largest sponsors) working closely on what will be a ground breaking inaugural Aguila Cup,” says Dave Miller, World Record Holder for shooting the most sporting clay targets broken in one hour (3,653 targets) and Shotgun Product Manager for CZ-USA. “I shoot in many events, and I know firsthand to make an event successful and unforgettable, it starts with great companies like these, that share in aligned principles and goals. I hope to see the Aguila Cup be the first tournament for many new shooters.”

The multidiscipline Aguila Cup will take place at Fossil Pointe Sporting Grounds in Decatur, TX from June 14th – 17th, 2018. Shooting categories will include Sporting Clays, Five Stand, FITASC, 3-Gun, and Rimfire. Teams and individuals can register online at www.shootaguilacup.com. Additional sponsorship opportunities are also available and can be viewed on the event website.

    1. What a BS company, they do not back their shotguns at all, They will hide behind a scratch not to warranty a Cracked stock,less than a year old, only shooting skeet with it!!! Never again Run away from this brand

      1. @ D, And CZ puts something on their barrel threads so that you can’t remove the barrel from the action without screwing things up. Don’t ever try to take off the front sight. Even their rings have a proprietary lug so that you can not use some other rings or use CZ rings on something else. CZ has too many weird little secrets about their rifles for me to ever buy another. I use several really good gun smiths and the whole stable took about a year and three times the cost of the original CZ 550 to get it straightened out. Their good looks are a trap for the unwary.

        1. This is a little ludicrous. I know that their custom rifle shop rebarrels their actions all the time. I had a custom lefty 6.5 Grendel made a few years ago, so it can definitely be done. Front sight removal is a pain? Not sure what rifle you’re referencing. Some of the older ones the bases are bolted on and have some sort of glue as well. Most of the new stuff is simply bolted on.

          As for rings, they’re European dovetails and CZ rings are made by a ton of companies. They bolt right to the action, so there’s less to come loose (no additional bases required). I use Alaska Arms QD rings on my 550 and Warnes on my 527. There are Leupolds and Burris and others too.

          Even a ‘really good gunsmith’ can be out of their element, and if it took that much money to get a 550 set up they were fleecing you.

      2. Eh, I don’t believe that in the least. If the stock was cracked, they’d take care of you. Their warranty folks have a pretty good reputation. If it’s no more than a scratch, probably not.
