Al Mar Shiva Knife Customized By Knifemaker Kirk Rexroat.
Al Mar knives are legendary for their quality, field performance and elegant design. The Shiva is an original Al Mar design and is the first tactical fixed blade they’ve ever made with a laminated VG-10 stainless steel blade. Laminating the VG-10 between two layers of 400 series stainless steel increases the lateral strength of the blade by upwards of 30 percent and does so without increasing the weight or bulk. The Shiva has a beautiful tapered tang, contoured and polished custom Mammoth tooth scales, satin stainless guard and a full grain traditional black leather sheath. It is the finest quality tactical fixed blade they’ve ever made.
Nighthawk Custom T4 1911 – Compact 9mm.
Since their founding some years ago, Nighthawk Custom has rapidly risen to be among the top custom 1911 builders in the business. They believe in hand-building guns, one at a time, and all of their staffers are highly experienced, taking great pride in their work — and the final product.
Nighthawk Custom has partnered here with the Shooting Industry Masters to help support the USA Shooting Team Olympians by graciously donating this innovative T4 9mm 1911 model. This is a chance to own a highly desirable Nighthawk Custom 1911 pistol, without having to wait months!
DRD Tactical Rifles – PARATUS P762 Gen 2 Rifle
The Paratus was developed for the Clandestine Break-Down Rifle (CSR) request listed on an open announcement by Joint & Special Operations Program (JSOP).

Ruger SR1911 .45 ACP Customized By Mag-Na-Port
A classic 1911 design, Ruger’s SR1911 took the shooting industry by storm when it first appeared. Our gun is a stainless steel .45 ACP model, nicely customized by the pros at Mag-Na-Port.
Additionally, the custom SR1911 comes with a remarkable, handmade, all leather holster by Karla Van Horn of Purdy Gear. Karla has been featured in the pages of American Handgunner many times and is arguably among the top small handful of true master leather workers. Her rendition of the classic Askins Avenger is hand-tooled and shows a degree of fit and craftsmanship not often encountered in any art form. As Roy Huntington, Editor of American Handgunner said, “Karla should be considered a National Treasure for her talent.”
