NEWINGTON, N.H., (May 10, 2019) –SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG Captain, Max Michel for his first-place finish in the Carry Optics Division at the 2019 Magnus Sports Cup held May 1-5, 2019 at the Southern Utah Practical Shooting Range in Washington, Utah.
“It’s great to see Max continue his win streak in the Carry Optics Division, and do it with the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics ROMEO3MAX Optic,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, and Executive Vice President Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “Max was not only the fastest shooter at the Magnus Cup within his division, but one of the most accurate shooters amongst all 450 competitors as well. His determination to continually better his performance in carry optics, and dedication to his training shows in the results, and his continued wins for Team SIG.”
To claim his first place finish at the 2019 Magnus Sports Cup, Max competed through 17 courses of fire using his P320X5, the soon to be released ROMEO3MAX open reflex sight, and SIG SAUER 9mm, 147 grain, Match Elite Competition Ammunition.
“This was the first ever Magnus Cup and it did not disappoint. The match challenged all of the physical and technical skills an IPSC shooter would need to possess in order to be at the top of their game,” added Michel. “My gear ran perfectly. The SIG Match Elite Ammunition was extremely accurate, and my ROMEO3MAX optic continues to turn heads because of my performance, and my P320X5 ran beautifully. I’m really proud to say that everything that helped me take first in the Carry Optics Division was a SIG SAUER product.”
