Eagle Imports, Inc., the U.S. distributor of Metro Arms, SPS, Bersa, Comanche and Grand Power firearms, announced that pro shooter Heather Fitzhugh — using a Grand Power X-Calibur — took 2nd High Lady and placed 15th out of 89 in the Practical Division at the Bushmaster Tarheel 3-Gun Monthly Match, which took place May 2 at Woody’s Hunt and Rifle Club in New Hill, NC. Check out the full results here.
“This was the first time that I have run the Grand Power X-Calibur at a match and I have to say… I’m in love. The gun runs phenomenally! I do not have a magwell on it or base pads for competition yet; I ran it stock, exactly the way it arrives in the box. I also ran it dirty since I’ve run 800 rounds through it and have yet to clean it. It ran beautifully; I was impressed. The rotating barrel really helps with recoil management and tracking from target to target. I can’t wait to run the X-Calibur at the next USPSA match; it is going to blow the other pistols out of the water,” Fitzhugh said in a press release.

Perfect for competition, the Grand Power X-Calibur boasts a rotating barrel that doesn’t tilt up and never leaves the target, which means lighter recoil and increased second-shot accuracy. This gun also comes with a match-grade trigger, adjustable sights, modular replaceable back straps, a scalloped slide that helps reduce weight, and a CNC machined steel chassis.
“We knew Heather would do great using the X-Calibur in the match. The truth is it’s hard not to perform well when you use this gun; I highly recommend it,” said Michael Sodini, president of Eagle Imports.
