The Atlas Gunworks Nemesis Sightblock pistol is at the height of handgun innovation. With it’s front fixed sightblock, there is less reciprocating weight on the slide of this 2011-style handgun, as well as a immobile front fiber optic sight.

The Atlas Gunworks Nemesis employs Perfect Zero Engineering. Perfectly designed and tested to “return to zero” after every shot with the correct ammunition loads. This sightblock is not a compensator, making it legal for use in limited divisions where comps are prohibited. Atlas Gunworks is proud to use only the best parts available. The Nemesis was born to breathe fire at your next USPSA match in the Limited Division. The Nemesis is also suitable for 3Gun, in the Practical Pistol Division. Get it in DLC Black, or up the style factor with a PVD Smoked Gray upgrade on the Frame, Slide, and Sightblock. Like to get dirty in the dark? No problem. The Nemesis is available with a tactical rail for all your light and gadget mounting needs for those nighttime matches.

  1. Mr. Dillon

    I don’t know where to start but I can certainly say that this handgun is fabulous. From the perfect presentation with the nice letter and the perfect soft gun case to the lights out first 4 shots. I literally took the gun from the case and walked into the range not knowing what to expect. I loaded up the tuned 20 round magazine took a look down the barrel and squeezed off 4 rounds to find all 4 rounds hit the zero bullseye together. Yes, I said one on top of the other. I couldn’t believe it until I painted the zero bullseye with the last 16 rounds. I know that there are a lot of other custom competition gun makers out there but Atlas Gunworks makes a custom handgun as good as or better than all the rest. So, lets let, the elephant out of the room and make this bold statement that Atlas Gunworks produces handguns on the level of Infinity…yes Infinity. All you have to do is be patience for the next 3 to 4 months and you will have a gun as fine as waiting 16 months for an Infinity. I know, I know, I know but it’s true and all you have to do is order one of Atlas Gunworks custom handguns and you will be converted too. I can’t wait to talk with Adam Nilson owner and master gunsmith again because I am ready to buy another custom gun. One last but very important point is there level of customer service which is the finest. If you have a question or need something clarified you can reach Adam that day or at the latest the next day and he will explain things with you at a level you can understand. Finally, look up the definition of Nemesis and you too will understand.

    When you think a handcrafted specialty gun company couldn’t out do themselves they did. I liked my 40cal Nemesis so much from Atlas Gunworks that I bought another one. Every handcrafted custom gun has a different sound when fired, that “note” only you would now when your gun is fired. Like a child crying and you know which one it is just by it’s cry. Your custom gun is made the same way but it’s characteristics are different. This new 40cal Nemesis shoots “lights out”. It’s hard to describe how one gun is more accurate than another gun that is already perfectly accurate. but it is possible. The finally turned 20 round magazines that come with the gun fired all 20 rounds “dead centered” with a majority of the rounds going into the same whole as the previous one you fired from 40 feet. What can I say about this gun, it’s “one mean mamba jamba”. Yes, I said “one mean mamba jamba”. A bad _ssed hand gun. So what can I do but buy a third Atlas handgun. Will it be a 9mm or the fire breathing dragon all custom Chaos. Wait for my review coming soon and thank you Adam, Cat and all the other tireless employees at Atlas Gunworks whom have the best customer service of any gun company. See you shooting somewhere soon.

    The problem with my Atlas Nemesis is – I just want ANOTHER one! (I got mine in .40 S&W for USPSA Limited and now I want one in 9mm)

    As an engineer, every gun I’ve ever purchased has been an exercise in “re-engineering”. You know, fix the trigger, improve the reliability, etc.

    The Nemesis is PERFECT just they way it is.

    When I first took the gun out of the cool field case it comes in, I was stunned by the simple beauty of the gun itself. It’s an amazing piece of engineering and machine work. It’s almost too pretty to shoot.

    But man does it shoot!

    When Cat at Atlas (who is AWESOME) first called me to ask about my hand size (and other custom desires) I wasn’t sure how much difference that could make but when I received the gun, it has the perfect fit for my hands.

    The trigger measures a 1lb 10oz release (that’s not a typo) with a perfect “glass break” and no real pre or over travel. The sights are exact and the gun shoots to point of impact. My “one-hole drill” was actually one jagged hole and I was hitting the gong on the rifle range, hand held, from 100 yards.

    You would think that with such a light trigger pull there would be issues with light strikes and 2011 pistols are supposed to be “finicky” about feeding, but so far, my Atlas Nemesis has fed and fired everything that I have tested. (155gr, 165,gr, 180gr factory loads and a collection of my own reloads.)

    And, the folks at Atlas are just awesome – “custom” means personal service. I received regular status updates on my gun from Cat, and Adam (the company owner) even called me with an update and filled my head with all kinds of great gear and reloading info.

    Sure, they cost more than an assembly line gun, and yes, a custom-built gun takes a few months to build but MAN is it worth it.

    My only worry now is that I’ll embarrass by Nemesis this shooting season because IT shoots better than I do!

    I WISH! I WISH I HAD BOUGHT THIS YEARS AGO! I would have saved a lot of money! I’ve had this Nemisis only a couple of weeks and it is an incredible hand gun. I hope Adam was right about how long it will last because I ordered another 1000 rounds of ammo for it last night. It is so fun to shoot. Not one stove pipe, jamb, mis feed, or problem. Runs like a finely tuned sowing machine. I hope it shoots 250,000 and yes i’ll replace a barrel or two I’m sure.
    My shooting buddy yelled at me for getting it. My other race pistols pretty much have been unused since receiving this. I know I need to keep shooting them but do so only to let this one cool off, so to speak!
    I am already thinking of buying another!
    If you do not like shooting don’t buy one. If you don’t like buying ammo don’t buy one. My shooting buddies have said I cheat now they are really saying it. It is like shooting a laser beam. We cut cards, shoot golf balls, steel, already been shooting at 70, 85 yards, in addition, of course our competitions, even shot holes in pennies.


    Adam and Cat were great to deal with. I love the red touches too.

    Thank you !
