HistoryNet Interview: Alec Reisberg, President & Founder of Match Grade

Recently, Match Grade President, Alec Reisberg was interviewed by HistoryNet, the world's largest publisher of history magazines. Read an excerpt below, and the full interview at this link

 

What gave you the idea to found Match Grade?

I’m a 7-year Veteran of the United States Marine Corps and deployed two times with 3rd Battalion 7th Marine Regiment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2013, I entered civilian life with a Los Angeles-based construction firm and quickly realized that there weren’t as many opportunities as a civilian to truly help others in the way that I was used to. This realization, along with two years of hard work, led to the launch of Match Grade Apparel, 100% American-made gear that you will be proud to wear.

 

What does Match Grade mean?

Technically, the term Match Grade refers to firearm parts and ammunition that are suitable for a competitive match. The goal is to hit the same spot, every time. The only way to do that is to control all of the variables and keep them consistent. If you have the same high-quality firearm paired with ammunition that is the same weight every shot, you can focus on building your firing platform, controlling your breath, and that slow smooth squeeze that’s been beaten into our heads since the first time we picked up a firearm.

It is with this same thinking that we approach our products at Match Grade Apparel. We realized early on that if we controlled all the variables, we could create an amazing product. This included finding the right manufacturer here in the US, coming up with designs we are proud of, creating a website that people will enjoy exploring, choosing honest, reliable Charity Partners and much more.
