''The term Contender designates a family of weapons, all with similar characteristics, originally created for sporting use in Aristeia! competitions. The look and design of the different Contenders varies depending on the manufacturer, but all share a low rate of fire and high stopping power, as befits duelling weapons. Usually, Contenders are characterized by their compact size, some models specifically designed to be attached to personal armour as forearm weapons. However, some manufacturers have developed models with a similar look to conventional carbines, and in the Aristeia! circuits it is not unusual to see weapons customized to the style of their carrier. The combination of compact size, lightness and power saw this weapon pass to the military sphere, but, at the moment, its biggest markets are still law enforcement and sporting use.''

The term "Contender" designates a family of weapons, all with similar characteristics, originally created for sporting use in Aristeia! competitions. The look and design of the different Contenders varies depending on the manufacturer, but all share a low rate of fire and high stopping power, as befits dueling weapons. Usually, Contenders are characterized by their compact size, some models specifically designed to be attached to personal armor as forearm weapons. However, some manufacturers have developed models with a look similar to conventional carbines, and in the Aristeia! circuits it is not unusual to see weapons customized to the style of their carrier. The combination of compact size, lightness, and power saw this weapon pass to the military sphere, but at the moment its biggest markets are still law enforcement and sporting use.
