[00:00:00.02]
– Hey everybody, Adam from ATLAS Gunworks.

[00:00:02.07]
Today we’re gonna talk
about the Athena model.

[00:00:04.09]
(upbeat music)

[00:00:09.02]
(gunshots)

[00:00:13.01]
The Athena’s a nine millimeter.

[00:00:15.00]
And what you see different at ATLAS

[00:00:16.05]
than some of the other shops

[00:00:18.02]
is we take a caliber and design

[00:00:20.00]
the entire gun around the caliber.

[00:00:21.07]
So, this is a sister gun to a Hyperion,

[00:00:24.05]
which is the gun without
the RDS plate system.

[00:00:28.01]
And the gun is completely
designed around nine millimeters.

[00:00:30.09]
So, what we’re chasing is

[00:00:32.02]
what we call, a perfect zero.

[00:00:33.08]
So, I want the gun and recoil to lift,

[00:00:36.00]
come back to the same spot it lifted from,

[00:00:38.07]
and not wiggle,

[00:00:39.06]
not, basically be still,

[00:00:41.03]
or as still as you can make it.

[00:00:42.07]
And you see a lot of folks
talking about flat guns.

[00:00:45.05]
And what you’re chasing with a flat gun

[00:00:47.04]
is that the gun doesn’t lift very much,

[00:00:48.09]
but what you see is

[00:00:49.07]
they do a lot of movement.

[00:00:51.01]
So, these guns are engineered to,

[00:00:53.02]
the amount of lift really doesn’t matter.

[00:00:55.02]
It’s not a lot,

[00:00:57.00]
because to get it to be stable,

[00:00:58.04]
we need it to be stable
through the whole path.

[00:00:59.09]
But, we want the guns
to lift, return to zero.

[00:01:03.01]
So let’s look at some of
the details on the Athena.

[00:01:06.04]
So what’s cool about the Athena,

[00:01:08.09]
is that every Athena’s gonna ship

[00:01:10.05]
with this adjustable rear sight plate.

[00:01:12.01]
So, Bomar style adjustable rear plate,

[00:01:15.03]
with two bolts, and that thing’s

[00:01:17.05]
secured to the back of the gun.

[00:01:19.03]
We run a two thirty to
two fifty front sight.

[00:01:22.03]
Can be fiber, can be fixed or tritium.

[00:01:25.00]
Those front sights will
also work as backups

[00:01:29.04]
with certain optics,

[00:01:30.03]
so we’ll come back to that in a moment.

[00:01:31.05]
But every gun will ship with this plate.

[00:01:33.09]
Whether the plate’s installed or not,

[00:01:35.02]
is up to you.

[00:01:36.09]
If you just wanted Athena

[00:01:38.01]
and you might add an optic later,

[00:01:39.05]
you get it shipped with this plate.

[00:01:40.06]
If not, this plate will be in the bag

[00:01:42.02]
and you can always have
an iron sighted gun.

[00:01:45.02]
There’s no porting or comp on the Athena

[00:01:46.09]
and none of that’s necessary
for our perfect zero return.

[00:01:49.06]
So because of that, the
guns legal and three gun

[00:01:53.09]
limited or tack, and then USPSA also,

[00:01:58.05]
you’ve got a limited gun there.

[00:02:01.00]
And then, if you’re an
iron sighted shooter

[00:02:02.07]
or you want a lower profile
for a carrier or a duty gun,

[00:02:05.00]
same thing, the irons
are gonna give you that.

[00:02:07.03]
If you want an optic,

[00:02:09.01]
the gun, if you choose,

[00:02:10.01]
will ship with the optic of your choice.

[00:02:11.08]
If you choose a Trijicon,

[00:02:13.08]
we’ve set up the sight
system to have a backup iron,

[00:02:16.02]
it’s underneath the dot,

[00:02:18.02]
with the Trijicons,

[00:02:19.03]
without a front sight change.

[00:02:21.00]
So the Trigicon plate has a built-in

[00:02:24.04]
option to bolt on your rear sight

[00:02:26.01]
and pretty much ship
everyone with the rear sight.

[00:02:28.05]
And then, so that backup iron
is automatically built in.

[00:02:32.03]
The Trigicons have a nice low profile.

[00:02:34.00]
So, doesn’t matter if
it’s an SRO or an RMR,

[00:02:37.03]
they’re just bolt on
ready to go, same plate.

[00:02:39.09]
To get this plate off and
go back to iron sight,

[00:02:42.01]
it’s two bolts to take the sight off,

[00:02:44.07]
two bolts to take the plate off,

[00:02:46.03]
and then two bolts to come back on

[00:02:48.06]
with the adjustable rear sight.

[00:02:50.07]
So, the Hyperion’s the
fixed sight version.

[00:02:53.09]
This is essentially the same exact gun.

[00:02:56.01]
Same tracking, same pattern.

[00:02:58.05]
Only difference is, slightly
different slide cuts,

[00:03:00.09]
and we have a plate system
available for irons or optics.

[00:03:05.00]
We make this optic plate
for all of the major optics,

[00:03:07.09]
and as optics become available

[00:03:09.04]
as long as they’re popular,

[00:03:10.03]
we’ll continue to make the plates.

[00:03:12.03]
The mag walls are adjustable.

[00:03:14.04]
There’s three different sizes.

[00:03:15.09]
Actually there’s three sizes,

[00:03:17.07]
and the bigger ones have
a couple weight choices,

[00:03:20.05]
so again, we can fine tune the gun.

[00:03:23.00]
The triggers are adjustable,

[00:03:25.00]
and there’s some thumb safety options.

[00:03:27.01]
So when you’re ordering a gun,

[00:03:28.02]
you’ve got a trigger thumb safety,

[00:03:29.09]
mag wall option,

[00:03:31.02]
and then optic option,

[00:03:32.08]
and then we have color options.

[00:03:35.02]
And the guns are gonna come this year

[00:03:36.04]
in three colors,

[00:03:37.03]
and then custom guns can
pretty much any color you want.

[00:03:40.07]
So I hope to see you
guys on the range soon.

[00:03:43.02]
If you’re looking for
that do-it-all pistol,

[00:03:44.06]
this is it.

[00:03:46.00]
The absolute, most versatile
pistol in our line up,

[00:03:49.01]
The ATLAS Gunworks Athena.

[00:03:50.09]
