Last year, Rifle Dynamics cancelled Red Oktober due to the Covid pandemic. Events all around firearms industry were getting cancelled during the year of Covid. Now, we are seeing the return of some shooting events such as Big Sandy that happened early this spring. Rifle Dynamics has recently announced the return of Red Oktober for the 2021 calendar year. Red Oktober will be taking place from October 23rd-24th.

For the uninitiated Red Oktober is a dynamic shooting competition akin to 3-gun just with Soviet-era weapon systems. So, your AK-47, AK-74, and etc. Red Oktober is held at ProGun Club in Boulder City, Nevada.

Below, is the press release from Rifle Dynamics on Red Oktober 2021.

Press Release

The Rifle Dynamics Red Oktober Kalashnikov Championships is back! ROKC is the premiere AK event in the country that draws hundreds of competitors and fans alike of the Kalashnikov platform. 2021 will be the 5th year of the event (last year was postponed, thanks COVID!) and we are looking to celebrate this year in a big way.

Established in 2016 as the first AK competition of its kind by our Range Commandant, Brian Nelson, it has grown from just a competition with AKs to a full-on celebration of the platform. In 2019 we were honored to have Red Oktober expand to Russia! Bringing some Kalashnikov love from these United States back to the Motherland.

For the 2021 competition we are happy to announce that we have teamed up with our cosponsors Kalashnikov USA and KCI USA to expand and grow the event this year. Both companies have made huge strides in their involvement with the AK community and we’re grateful for their support as with all of our sponsors. At ROKC spectators will have the ability to go out and meet their favorite AK companies, demo some new gear, and leave with some parts and accessories to complete their newest builds. Gun Owners of America, among others, will be in attendance for their second year to host smaller charity matches throughout the 2-day event and prizes & giveaways will be available both of the days for all who attend. For the first time in ROKC history Battlefield Vegas will also be bringing some big toys and exotic Soviet firearms peppered throughout the stages and for visitors to play with. DShKs, T-62 tanks and many more!

Red Oktober will be held October 23-24, 2021 at Pro Gun Vegas in Boulder City, NV, which is a 20 minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip making it ideal for that little getaway from all the lights. We’ll be working with Pro Gun Vegas to offer the ability to stay & camp on site with more details to come. Here’s to half a decade of Kalashing in the desert!
